The Asia Pacific Quality Organization (APQO) has named LANDBANK as one of the winners in the prestigious Global Performance Excellence Awards (GPEA). The Bank received the Quest for Excellence Award, the third highest award under the Non-Profit or Government Entity category. It joins 29 other organizations from ten Asian and Pacific Rim Countries who were recognized as “exemplary companies of world class quality performance”.

LANDBANK was nominated by the Development Academy of the Philippines to participate in GPEA, following its conferment of the Level-2 Recognition for Proficiency in Quality Management from the Philippine Quality Award. The Bank was recognized for having demonstrated effective and systematic approaches to the overall requirements of the globally-accepted business excellence framework.

“We are honoured and grateful for this prestigious recognition, which affirms LANDBANK’s commitment to quality management and business excellence. This award inspires us all the more to intensify our efforts to continue building a culture of excellence that translates to world class performance, and serve as role model for other organizations across countries,” said LANDBANK OIC/Executive Vice President Cecilia C. Borromeo.

Now on its 16th year, the GPEA is an international recognition of national quality award recipients based on the Baldrige Criteria Framework of the Malcolm Baldrige Quality Award (American Quality Award).  Assessments are done by trained Baldrige examiners and consultants of Fortune 500 corporations.

LANDBANK is the only Philippine bank and the only government entity that made it to this year’s roster of winners. The awards will be presented at the 22nd APQO International Conference on Quality in Rotorua, New Zealand on November 20-23, 2016.

APQO is a non-profit organization that was founded and organized in 1985 by National Quality Organizations in Asian and Pacific Rim countries to be a primary mover for quality and continuous improvement for goods and services and quality of life in the Asia Pacific Region.
