Ten outstanding workers in the Subic Bay Freeport Zone will be given due recognition in the annual “Heroes of the Freeport” awards night on November 29.
The awards, which are given yearly by the Subic Bay Freeport Development Foundation, Inc. (SBFDFI) in the past 10 years, is a fitting tribute to the finest workers in the freeport zone.
Lawyer Severo Pastor Jr., head of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) Labor Department, said the 10 outstanding employees will be chosen from a field of 37 nominees originally recommended by their respective employers.
Pastor said this year’s awardees will be selected from among the nominees submitted by 13 locator-companies in the zone, as well as seven nominees from the SBMA.
He said Subic workers are now globally-competitive workers, as proven by the continued stay of multinational companies in Subic, despite the economic crisis that has affected the United States, Japan and parts of Europe.
“These workers, who were nominated, selected and had qualified for the awards are therefore considered the best of the best. They are exemplary employees not only of the corporations they represent, but also of the whole Subic Freeport,” he said.
The nominees for the Ten Outstanding Freeport Workers Awards went through a rigid process of selection, as those who were nominated by their respective companies were screened and thoroughly interviewed.
