. The shortlist was from a reported “record number of entries” received by the London-based organization that helps “leaders, employees, and companies work together to create an effective environment” through accreditation against a framework to measure their performance (source: https://www.investorsinpeople.com/
). NAMRIA Administrator, Usec. Peter N. Tiangco, PhD was very much pleased with the news, and referred to the agency’s being an IIP contender as “an achievement in itself that further affirms our agency’s goal to be truly world-class.” He likewise expressed his appreciation to all officials and employees of the agency saying, “Win or lose, malaking panalo na rin ang naabot natin
[we already achieved a great victory].” The Investors in People Awards 2021 will be held online on 23rd November 2021.
