Philippine Airlines subsidiary PAL Express was recognized as one of the top 100 employers in Asia by the Employer Banking Institute of India at the 10th Asia's Best Employer Awards held at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Singapore. These awards recognize top performing companies based on Employer branding, Talent acquisition, talent management and innovation.
PAL Express was recognized for its efforts in continuing to promote employee welfare and engagement through social media, nurturing and developing talents through career development programs, simplification of employee processes though automation, and boosting talent acquisition to become a top-of-mind employer choice.
PAL Express is recognized for its commitment to create a high potential organization in shaping future leaders, aside from being a desirable workplace.
Last August, PAL Express was included in the Best Employer Brand Awards by the same award-giving body for its efforts in combining vision with action in executing HR strategies, initiating effective employee benefits and engagement programs, and cultivating competencies important for a “future-ready” company.
In a statement, PAL Express President Bonifacio U. Sam said, "The award is significant as it recognizes our commitment to take care of our people by developing new talent and strengthening skills of the current workforce. This accolade is the result of strong collaboration between PAL Express management and our workforce. This serves as an inspiration for us to work even harder in training, nurturing and molding our workers well so they may serve the riding public with technical and managerial excellence anchored on Buong Pusong Alaga philosophy.”
PAL Express, under the corporate name of Air Philippines Corp., was formerly known as AirPhil Express and Air Philippines. They operate a fleet of 6 Airbus A321-200, 9 Airbus A320, and 14 Bombardier Q400. They fly to 31 destinations operating from hubs in Manila, Cebu, and Clark.
