Last week, APEX Global successfully conducted 3 trainings at the New World Hotel, Makati City. Forty-five professionals and executives from various firms attended the Business Continuity Management Practitioner, Sustainability Reporting Practitioner and Combined Lead Auditor trainings.
On May 30-31, the Business Continuity Management Practitioner training was held to help professionals learn the best practices of BCM implementation using the BS 25999 standard. Business Continuity is a key factor for an organization to maintain its critical operations during and following a disruption and the speed at which it is able to re-establish its full functionality. RCBC, Smart Communications, Allied Bank and Jollibee Foods Corporation are some of the companies who sent representatives to learn from this course.
Simultaneously, the Sustainability Reporting Practitioner workshop was conducted focusing on the principles and best practices of structuring, designing and developing a successful corporate sustainability report. Tips from GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) G3 Guidelines, AA1000 (AccountAbility and ISO 26000 (Guidelines for Corporate Social Responsibility) were shared to participants from Ayala Corporation, Development Bank of the Philippines, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas and Globe Telecom.
The Combined Lead Auditor Training was also conducted from May 30 to June 3. The training course is the first of its kind in the Philippines combining ISO 27001 (Information Security Management System) and ISO 9000 (Quality Management System). Whereas conventional training programs would require 10 days for the two standards, the duration of APEX Global’s delivered the program in only 5 days. Participants come from companies such as UnionBank, BlastAsia, Toshiba Information Equipment, SPI CRM, Zuellig Pharma, HP and Fujitsu.
