Human resources (HR) department is responsible for managing the pool of employees in an organization allowing it operate effectively. HR managers are expected to possess the right talents, skills and mindset to address the challenges face by this department in the management and harnessing of an organization’s human assets.

The common challenges faced by HR include seeking skilled and competent employees, adapting to technological innovations, securing the organization’s confidential data, and responding and adapting to the changing demographic profiles of the employees.

To address these challenges, it is necessary that HR managers are guided by experts in the HR environment. In the Philippines, the People Management Association of the Philippines or PMAP, is an organization comprised of various company executives who are dedicated to the task of harnessing and developing the workforce through their management expertise into an important tool for business longevity and viability.

Now on its 60th year, the PMAP has to find another set of leaders to continue its advocacy and goal. One of the parties that desire to lead the association in the coming years is the Team Action and Performance composed of Leo Gellor for President, Ellen Fullido for Secretary and Paz Malubay for Treasurer. Marvin Adolfo, PhD., Dina Loomis, Vilma Valera, Mimie Reyes, Carmie de Leon, and Lyn Lupac on the other hand, are candidates who will compose the Board of Trustees.

Team Action and Performance envisions to make the PMAP an organization that remains relevant to the needs of its member companies by helping in achieving a well-trained workforce that is responsive to the changing needs of the business environment.

To know more about the people behind Team Action and Performance, we sat down with them to get to know what their plans are.

LEO GELLOR FOR PRESIDENT

What have been your accomplishments as a PMAP member?

I basically grew the JPMAP organization from a “sleeping” organization to one of the most active student organizations all over the Philippines. Many JPMAP alumni are now employed by our member-companies. I authored a resolution allowing faculty members to join PMAP as Advocates under the Individual Membership type, by only paying half of the annual Individual Membership dues yet enjoying the full benefits of a member. I co-championed the proposed HR Bill that allows the certification of new HR graduates through a board examination. I also opposed many proposals that run counter to our mandate of ensuring the funds of the organization are used for the benefit of our members. I ensured that the funds are well-protected. I made sure the 53rd Annual Conference will be successful and profitable, and we achieved that.

Moreover, I acquired multiple positions for this association in the past such as Chairperson of JPMAP (2006-2009), elected Top 2 Trustee (2010-2011), chairperson of JPMAP (2012), elected Trustee for JPMAP (2013-2014), elected Trustee for Membership Committee (2014; concurrent capacity), elected Treasurer and Trustee for JPMAP (2015) and elected Vice President (2016).

Are there any developments and/or improvements you see for the association? What are these?

I see that there should be an improvement in servicing our members; services that are value-adding yet are not financially burdensome.

How can you contribute to achieving such developments?

I will propose measures and programs to ensure these are actualize.

What made you decide to run for that particular position?

The task of a President is gargantuan. The organization is growing and majority of our members belong to the SMEs. These are the companies that have scarce resources but need help and assistance. They also helped a lot in our economy be employing people to help arrest unemployment issue. As one who belongs to these enterprises, I can fully relate well with their issues and concerns.

What do you think makes you the most qualified candidate for the position?

My continuous quality service to PMAP for more than 10 years makes me the most qualified because I know the ins and outs of the organization, the dynamics of working with different stakeholders, all of which are volunteers, the story behind every issues and concerns. I am a person who is grounded and expect me to be working with my team. I have high people skill so it is not a problem working across all levels in the organization.

Additionally, in the past years, PMAP recognized me as I was awarded People Program of the Year – IFFSI/Shakey’s (2009), Committee of the Year – JPMAP (2010; 2014), and received a Presidential Awardee (2013; 2015). My leadership is also practiced since I am and I was a leader in other organizations—President of Gellor Business Management, Inc., HR Director in Broadchem Philippines Biopharma Corporation, HR Director in TBWA\Santiago Mangada Puno Advertising, Inc., Former AVP for Employee Relations & Communications (TV5) and Former HR & Admin Manager for IFFSI (Shakey’s).

Can you share with us your plan of actions once you’re elected as one of the PMAP officers?

I will work on the three (3) most important programs. These are—(1) Innovation—It cannot be downplayed as having played an important role in membership servicing. I will propose a resolution allowing members to fully enjoy the benefits at their fingertips by introducing more e-services. We will coalesce with partners to allow our members to participate in the monthly GMMs, learning events, AC sessions, etc. at the comfort of their respective offices—(2) Inclusivity—We will strengthen our partnership and coalition with other professional organization so that PMAP will have a share in the total personal and career development of a person. Partnering with other organization will also give us greater role in nation building—(3) Engagement—We will think of creative ways in doing our events and activities to ensure greater and active participation of our members. These activities must result to a win-win benefits to all. These activities should be able to answer this question: “What is in it for me/my company?”

I was awarded as Committee of the Year – GMM Committee; Media & Communications Committee – 2008-2016; Three-time Committee of the Year; Recipient of Special Award, PMAP Makatao Awards for Media Excellence; Recipient for Presidential Award. Apart from the awards, the Media & Communications Committee has spearheaded the promotion of projects and advocacies of PMAP through information campaigns in print, radio, TV and the social media, particularly PMAP Leadership Competencies and Media Forum re Worsening Traffic Condition in Metro Manila and key cities all over the country.

Yes, I see a lot of improvement/development in the following areas in the association: Declining membership to PMAP – there is a need to entice more individuals or corporations to join the organization; Ageing Leadership – there is a need to tap new leaders among the members, especially the millennials; and, Effective and efficient collection method of membership dues and other fees.

How can you contribute to achieving such developments?

Since I’m connected with a media organization,  helping PMAP in attracting more members and encouraging the millennials to play an active role in the various endeavors  of the association, I will push for more rigorous campaigns and promotions  using the traditional media (radio, TV, print), as well as the new media. As regards collection of dues and fees, I will continue to recommend and device new methods and systems to improve collection.

What made you decide to run for that particular position?

After having served two years as PMAP Board of Trustee, I decided to run as Board Secretary to help Excom in its continuing effort to improve the services PMAP extends to its members. Aside from this, I would like to be able to see into fruition some of the resolutions made by the current Board particularly the setting-up and construction of an educational institution dedicated to the advancement of the HR profession.

What do you think makes you the most qualified candidate for the position?

I think that aside from my more than 20 years as an HR Professional, my 16 years of dedicated service and commitment to PMAP makes me the most qualified candidate for the position.

Can you share with us your plan of actions once you’re elected as one of the PMAP officers?

Get to know first the people I will be working with, both the Board and the PMAP    Professional Staff. Familiarize myself with the duties and responsibilities of the Board of Trustee. Determine if there are areas for improvement in the current system particularly the on-goings of Board meetings and documentation. Come up with recommendations to simply and make the system more efficient and effective.

PAZ MALUBAY, CPA FOR TREASURER

What have been your accomplishments as a PMAP member?

I believe I have contributed for the financial stability of the Association.  The year before I joined the Board, the Association had a negative result which in my first year as a trustee the proposed budget was also negative. With my experience, I was able to explain to the Board that we should not budget for a negative net income but should budget for a positive one.  And that year the association did not only meet the budgeted net income but even exceeded it.

Are there any developments and/or improvements you see for the association? What are these?

There are still improvements and developments that must be done.  As a treasurer, I see that we need to improve on our reporting of our financial status. Process improvement is also needed and there must be a compliance review to make sure that everything the association is doing is compliant with rules and regulations.

How can you contribute to achieving such developments?

I can contribute in achieving the development if I will be allowed another year as a treasurer.  I will have more time to introduce and implement changes beneficial to the association.

What made you decide to run for that particular position?

As a CPA I have more than 20 years of experience in this capacity.

What do you think makes you the most qualified candidate for the position?

I may not be the most qualified but I am willing to really add value to the association and I have the right network to implement the improvement I will be proposing.

Can you share with us your plan of actions once you’re elected as one of the PMAP officers?

I will still stand firm on the decisions that I believe will be for the good of the association.  I will exert all effort so that the funds of the association will be properly spent and our end result will be net income.

VILMA VALERA FOR TRUSTEE

What have been your accomplishments as a PMAP member?

I consider my 40 years active and productive membership in PMAP as my greatest accomplishment for PMAP. I became a member since July 1976 when I was a Personnel Manager in a big automotive firm. I had 20 years experience as HR practitioner in various companies and as well as various international and local manpower recruitment agencies.  At present I work as Account Manager for Medicard Phil. Inc. for the last 18 yrs.

In 1980, I was elected PMAP Board Secretary, Trustee in 2003, 2005, 2006, 2015 and 2016.  All these years I engaged myself in the Community Relations Committee and the Fellowship, Engagement and Wellness Committee as Trustee in charge.  My CSR committee has been consistently Committee of the Year Awardee for several years.  In 2015, I received a Presidential Special Citation for the FEWCom.  My legacy in PMAP is the Career Orientation Seminar under the CSR which ran for 6 straight years for college graduating students preparing to land a job conducted in different universities in Luzon and Metro Manila.

Are there any developments and/or improvements you see for the association? What are these?

I would like PMAP to improve on the dwindling membership.  A retention plan must be adopted to motivate new members to participate in PMAP committees and activities as well as PMAP to improve its services and training programs for the members.

How can you contribute to achieving such developments?

With my experience in CSR and FEWcom committees, I will introduce the medical/dental outreach projects for PMAP to tie up with our Medicard Foundation where I am a very active member. I will continue l the Palarong Pilipino, Fun Run, Wellness activities and programs, the Advent and Easter recollection projects.

What made you decide to run for that particular position?

Although it will be my 7th term in the Board if I win, I decided to run again as Trustee to serve as an inspiration to the young and new members to develop their passion in serving  PMAP and not only be interested in the learnings gained from PMAP.  Also because of a present concern of the Board to safeguard its fund because of an impending concern about the PMAP Foundation, we have to have a majority in the quorum in the Incoming Board because of this concern with the PMAP Foundation.

What do you think makes you the most qualified candidate for the position?

I think my 40 years of voluntary service with PMAP would speak for my loyalty, integrity and performance throughout the years.  I am the tried and tested seasoned PMAP-er.

Can you share with us your plan of actions once you’re elected as one of the PMAP officers?

I hope I can still be assigned with the FEWCOM if elected to continue all the projects I have started the last 2 yrs as Trustee of the Fewcom.  I will continue working harmoniously with the Exec. Director and professional staff especially to participate in all then Board discussions of important issues and to be present in all GMMs, Board Meetings and activities of PMAP.
