Lafarge Cement Services Philippines Inc. was recently conferred the “Investor In People” award, testimonial of the company’s commitment to being their people’s employer of choice. This is the first time such an award had been conferred to a Philippine company.

The award, given out by Investors in People UK and International Quality Centre, Ltd. is regarded as the equivalent of ISO certifications in realm of human resources. The two UK-based certifying companies select awardees on the basis of how they reached standards of being an investor in its people- in training, in development and in providing resources for a safe, healthy and productive working environment.

“This is truly an honor for Lafarge Cement Services and we will work even harder to ensure that our certification is renewed and that we constantly improve on our commitment to be a company for our people,” says Edgardo Soriano, LCSPI’s SVP for Organization, Human Resources & Corporate Communications of the certification, which is reviewed every three years.

“I am very proud of all we’ve accomplished. We wouldn’t have achieved this certification without the validation and commitment of our people,” stresses Erdogan Pekenc, LCSPI’s President and General Manager. “I challenge management to constantly work on ensuring that our group is considered an Investor in People, not only by the assessors, but more importantly by our employees. We’re not just a place to work, we’re a group that allows our people to grow and reach their fullest potentials in their areas of responsibility.”

Lafarge Cement Services Philippines Inc., is the technical service provider to Republic Cement Corporation and its subsidiaries, FR Cement Corporation, Continental Operating Corporation, Republic Cement Corporation, Fortune Cement Corporation and Iligan Cement Corporation and is part of Lafarge S.A., the world leader in building materials.
