Apart from these economic rewards, employees receive an enhanced medical benefit.

The hard work and good work ethics of the employees are also rewarded. Through the annual President’s Awards, the company recognizes employees who have shown outstanding performance.

With all these rewards, employees will certainly continue to give their best work. Their awarded colleagues stand as an inspiration and role models for others to strive for excellence as well.
