The country’s fastest-growing and third biggest oil player, Phoenix Petroleum, has added five new honors to its list of achievements as the company’s programs were recently recognized by the 18th International Business Awards (IBA), also known as the Stevies.
Winning a Gold Stevie trophy is the Phoenix Digital National Convention, a yearly event that was innovated to adapt to the effects of the pandemic. Titled ‘Winnovation: Partner, Kayang-kaya, basta’t sama-sama!’, the convention utilized different digital live streaming platforms to gather all Phoenix brand partners, dealers, distributors, suppliers, and franchise owners across the country.
The company’s internal COVID-19 response program earned a Silver Stevie for the Most Exemplary Employer category. The award highlights Phoenix’s various initiatives to ensure the safety and security of its employees amid the pandemic. Another silver awardee for the Most Valuable Service category is FamilyMart’s #WeSupportSMEs campaign which helped small local businesses to sustain themselves, and reach more customers through FamilyMart stores.
Meanwhile, LIMITLESS, the company’s biggest program launched last year, won a Bronze Stevie for Innovation of the Year-Consumer Service Industries category. Another innovative program, the Phoenix Block, also won a bronze trophy for New Products-Consumer Services category. These two programs showcased the company’s innovative approach in providing its services to its clients during the pandemic.
“To be recognized consistently in the international scene makes us beyond proud. It is especially more rewarding as this comes while we combat the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. This recognition from the IBA only makes us want to improve and strive more,” Phoenix Petroleum President Henry Albert Fadullon said. “We attribute this achievement to the collective effort of everyone from Phoenix to continuously work on our vision to be an indispensable partner in everyone’s journey,” he added.
Fadullon also serves as the only Filipino Chairman of the Judging Committee this year, being at the helm of the Achievement and Management/Entrepreneur categories of the IBA–a category in which Phoenix does not have any entries.
With this win, Phoenix now has a total of 11 IBA trophies. This is also the fourth consecutive year that the company and its programs were recognized by the renowned international awards organization.
The International Business Awards is the world’s premier business award created in 2002 to honor and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and working professionals worldwide. This year, it received 3,700 nominations from companies worldwide. Among the awardees this year are Ayala Land, LLYC, and IBM.
