THE Aboitiz Group has received several honors at the Philippine Quill Awards, the country’s most prestigious awards program in the field of business communications.

The accolades given by the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) Philippines were the excellence award in the publications category for “Aboitiz 100th Anniversary Book: 100 Years of Advancing Business and Communities,” the excellence award in the internal communications category for the “InfraKamustahan: The AIC Virtual Townhall,” and a merit award in the digital communications category for the “#OneAboitizSustainability Microsite.”

The 19th edition of the Philippine Quill Awards last Aug. 18, 2022 carried the theme “Move: Stronger Together,” highlighting the power of communicators in shaping the future and moving people to positive change. Such a theme resonated profoundly with the Aboitiz Group and its ultimate purpose. This year in particular, these recognitions reaffirm what the Aboitiz Group has been conscientiously working towards over the past century, and what it is committing itself to achieving for a century more.

“We are truly honored to be recognized for things that we are truly proud of – engaging our people, caring for our planet, and celebrating 100 years of advancing business and communities,” said Aboitiz Group president and chief executive officer Sabin Aboitiz.

Aboitiz anniversary book

The Aboitiz 100th Anniversary Book is the Aboitiz Group’s official commemorative publication chronicling the past century of Aboitiz. It is a story of overcoming challenges for business survival, of industry and growth, and of the company’s remarkable evolution into the multi-industry, regional conglomerate it is today.

The publication process involved fact-checking thousands of pieces of historical data, gathering memorabilia, and collaborating with valued shareholders. All this amidst the communication difficulties posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. It was a labor of resilience and loyalty by those within and around the Aboitiz Group.

Ultimately, the history captured in the book serves as inspiration for the next chapter of Aboitiz. As the company goes through its “Great Transformation,” the lessons of the past century will be applied with a renewed entrepreneurial spirit to bring the Aboitiz at the forefront of innovation as the Philippine’s first “Techglomerate.” (PR)
