Ayala land dominates global competition as pursuit of excellence continues

Ayala Land Inc. (ALI), the listed property giant, remains steadfast in its pursuit of excellence, carrying with it the DNA of the Ayala Group, the country’s oldest conglomerate.

As it celebrates its 33 years of empowering lives and nation building, ALI pops the champagne bottles as well for reaping 36 global Stevie awards at the 2021 International Business Awards (IBA).

These awards, highly coveted in the field of business, are a testament to ALI’s continuous engagement with stakeholders — its employees, customers, communities where it operates and shareholders — all in pursuit of excellence.

Makati Development Corporation won Company of the Year under Materials & Construction category

It is relentless in fulfilling its mission to enhance value not only for its shareholders but for the country. Thus, it is not just building structures and developing nurturing homes and communities for the Filipino family but it also continuously strives to contribute to nation building.

2021 Grand Stevie Organization of the Year

ALI’s long list of Stevie Awards is topped by the prestigious Grand Stevie as Organization of the Year, which is no mean feat, as it proves it is the best among the world’s best.

The company, in fact, earned the most number of award points this year and topped an IBA program that is considered the world’s leading omnibus business awards competition.

Heart that Cares COVID-19 Response program by Ayala Property Management Corporation was recognized as Most Valuable Corporate Response.

The IBA Stevies feature a wide variety of categories to recognize achievement in every facet of work life, including management, new products, marketing, public relations, customer service, website design and more.

The Grand Stevie has become one of the world’s most coveted prizes.

They were created in 2002 to honor and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and working professionals worldwide.

“The best-of-show Grand Stevie winners are emblematic of the breadth and quality of nominations we welcomed to the IBAs in 2021,” said Maggie Gallagher Miller, president of the Stevie Awards.

Even with the onslaught of COVID-19, ALI has remained resilient and the Grand Stevie Awards took notice of this.

“COVID-19 continues to test economic conditions in many parts of the world, but those challenges have been met and overcome in myriad ways by our 2021 Stevie Award winners,” Miller said.

Pioneering REIT

ALI’s AREIT Inc. likewise won a Stevie, bringing home the Gold Stevie as Real Estate Company of the Year.

AREIT braved an uncertain market, at the height of the onslaught of COVID-19 in the country, making its landmark initial public offering in August 2020.

Ayala Land’s Circular Waste Management Program, which diverts plastic waste from landfills and recycles these into eco-products, was chosen as Health, Safety & Environment Program of the Year.

The market debut was designed to make the Philippine property market more inclusive and accessible to Filipino investors through a best-in-class REIT. In effect, AREIT blazed the trail for others, jumpstarting the now increasingly vibrant REIT landscape in the Philippines.

33 years and counting

Indeed, since its founding over thirty years ago, ALI has grown exponentially and now maintains a total land bank of 12,483 hectares nationwide. It continues to widen its reach through diversified offerings across five residential brands, with 2.12 million square meters of malls, 1.30 million square meters of offices, 4,030 hotel and resort rooms, and a recent expansion into new leasing formats such as warehousing, co-living and co-working spaces.

Abreeza’s The Good Vibes Project: Bringing Bright Colors to Bleak Times brought together Davao artists to brighten the mall’s roof garden.

“As we mark our 33rd year, we remain committed to supporting our country’s growth and development especially during these difficult times of the global pandemic. We continue to strive for excellence across our organization to come up with programs that enhance our customer and community engagements,” said ALI president and CEO Bernard Vincent Dy.

And in this time of the  pandemic, ALI continues to evolve as an organization, yet at the same time mindful of the health and safety of all its stakeholders.

Other stevie awards

Among Ayala Land’s Gold Stevie Award winning programs is its ‘Zero Waste’ Circular Waste Management Program.

This unique circular economy model established a process in which waste materials such as plastics were given alternative destinations for recycling and reprocessing.

Makati Development Corp., the construction arm of Ayala Land, also won a Gold Stevie award as Materials and Construction Company of the Year. It has been cited for its contributions to the creation of local employment, as well as for the various process improvements and technological innovations it has implemented company-wide. Key subsidiaries Ayala Land Logistics Holdings Corp. and Ayala Land Offices Inc. also won Gold Stevies for industry contributions and organization achievements.

The rest of Ayala Land’s awards were also driven by employee, community and nation building initiatives.
