- “Team member referrals are the company’s best source of talent, as they know who is best fit for the company.”—AboitizLand’s Andoni Aboitiz
- Over half of 114 applicants were endorsed to the next-level interview
To attract A-people to support its exponential growth, AboitizLand held its 1st in-house Career Fair at the Aboitiz Corporate Center, Banilad, Cebu City last March 14.
The 1st in-house Career Fair is a first for the Aboitiz Group, intended for team member referrals. AboitizLand President and Chief Executive Officer Andoni F. Aboitiz (AFA) highlighted the “honor when a fellow team member refers a relative, friend or acquaintance to AboitizLand.” AFA added “team member referrals are the company’s best source of talent, as they know who is best fit for the company.”
Over half of the 114 applicants referred by AboitizLand team members were endorsed to the next-level interview.
Bryle Ian Mendaros, AboitizLand Corporate Social Responsibility Associate who was hired from the in-house Career Fair, said he was impressed with AboitizLand team members’ camaraderie and teamwork.
“When you work in Aboitiz, you get this sense of prestige because you know you are working with A-people,” said Mendaros. He added that the AboitizLand recruitment process is tough because the company makes sure they get the right people.
The whole-day event featured AboitizLand’s experiential booths by different AboitizLand teams in order for applicants to get a taste of real estate operations while giving them the feel of the company’s nurturing, assuring, and enduring culture and work environment.
