Pursuing its role as Partners for Growth, Pilmico has introduced AHEAD: Pilmico Learning Hub, a structured and purposive developmental program dedicated to continuous learning, education, and competency building for both employees and partners.
“Always staying ahead of competition and of ourselves, that way personally and professionally we can always stay ahead. Today, tomorrow, and in the future or in the years to come, let’s be AHEAD,” PIlmico CEO Sabin M. Aboitiz said in encouraging Pilmico partners to take advantage of the new program.
Launched at the Pilmico Tarlac plant last June 1, AHEAD opened its Farm Curriculum as its first learning program and aims to accelerate on-boarding of talents with zero to minimum technical knowledge and experience. Pilmico Farms VP for Operations Dr. Dennis H. Racelis will act as Dean for the Farm Curriculum. He is supported by Pilmico farm managers and supervisors, namely Johara Gurat, Joel Punsalan, Joyce Camille Bamba, Jelord Sumaya, Marites Galyendez, Jay Bonifacio Corpus, Aljean Tesorero, and Marlanne Palaming as Subject Matter Experts on Pig Health & Welfare, Pig Management, Breeding and Reproduction, Feed and Nutrition, and Biosecurity and Hygiene, respectively.
The Farm Curriculum classes were started last June 18 and will continue every Friday at the Price Academy in Pilmico’s Tarlac plant. Currently, there are 4-hour and 8-hour class modules, each module having 20 regular farm staff enrolled for more in-depth learning experience.
