DAVAO CITY -- Shifting its vision from business-centered in the past 29 years to people-centered this year is one of the meaningful moves made by Megaworld, one of the country’s largest real estate developers.

It was also the most significant information delivered by Harold Geronimo, the senior assistant vice president and head for public relations and media affairs of Megaworld, during the fun-filled Christmas gathering and thanksgiving with Davao City media on December 9 at The Marco Polo Davao.

The company’s new vision marks the 30th anniversary celebration of Megaworld this year.

“We are here not just for business, we are here to uplift lives,” Geronimo said.

He cited Megaworld’s 5,000 scholars this year as well as nurturing over 5,000 employees as some of the many undertakings the company has embarked on to help uplift lives.

Megaworld has also generated a lot of jobs through its BPO offices in its townships throughout the country. Geronimo said as the largest developer, Megaworld townships host companies that employ almost 20 percent of the entire BPO workforce.

He also cited Megaworld’s active role in the recently concluded South East Asian Games where the company was a platinum sponsor.

“We support organizations like the SEA Games organizing committee where we were able to discover the potentials of a lot of many Filipino athletes,” he said, adding the company started to organize its regional sports tournaments in all its outlets only this year to mark its 30th anniversary.

Geronimo said said Megaworld helps build the nation through its townships that help build the economies of some areas in the country. He cited its township in Iloilo which helped shape the city. “With our township in Iloilo the city became vibrant, so with other developers who have started to see the potentials of Iloilo.”

“We are very proud our new vision is not business-centered but something that makes a mark in the lives of the Filipino people,” he said.

Megaworld is developing its P15-billion Davao Park District in Lanang, Davao City. The 11-hectare property is in the city’s central business district and is a major center for information technology and business process outsourcing (IT-BPO) in Mindanao.
