SBMA cites Subic college for CSR program

The Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) presented an award to Mondriaan Aura College, a Subic-based educational institution that provides seminar-trainings to agency employees as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) program.

SBMA human resources manager Lolita Mallari, on behalf of the Subic authority, gave plaques and certificates of appreciation to Aura officials for the school’s “continuous support to the agency” during last Monday’s flag ceremony.

The awardees were Dr. Edgar Geniza, president of Mondrian Aura College; Dr. Editha Geniza , executive vice president; and school staffers Leo Eusantos, Roma Salvador, Thomas Erween Davis, and Ludivina Carballo.

“This is an example of SBMA and its stakeholders synergizing,” Mallari said of SBMA and Aura’s partnership.

She added that the SBMA presented the awards to recognize the college’s efforts in helping to enhance the skills and capacities of SBMA personnel.

Aura began conducting trainings and seminar-workshops for SBMA employees last year, after launching its CSR program dubbed “Summer Experience”. The project was proposed by Dr. Editha Geniza to SBMA administrator Armand Arreza, who readily agreed to the program.

Since its inception, Aura has conducted four seminars for SBMA personnel. These are the Seminar on Handling Difficult Behavior, which was held on March 25 and April 29, 2010 with 77 attendees; Seminar on Accounting for Non-Accountants held on March 26, 2011 with 31 attendees; Strategic Ethics and Decision-Making Analysis held on May 26, 2010 with 44 participants; and Seminar on Human Relations Skills held on July 7-8, 2011 for 30 SBMA employees.
