SUBIC BAY FREEPORT –A supply officer who was responsible for the increase in collections of the Maintenance Department of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) has been named the agency’s Employee of the Year for 2012.
Marivic Seguiban bested five other finalists in the annual search for the SBMA outstanding employees held on March 15 at the Subic Bay Exhibition and Convention Center.
Seguiban was also named as employee of the year for the SBMA Public Services Group.
According to the judges, Seguiban received the award for being instrumental in increasing her department’s revenue collections by 240 percent.
She was also cited for reporting to work even during typhoons in order to assist maintenance personnel who rendered emergency services.
The other five finalists, office services clerk Enrique Aguila, land management officer Engr. Leonardo Agustin, information systems analyst Moises Concepcion, Jr., seaport department’s Engr. Dax Pascasio and senior communications development officer Engr. Ryan San Jose were also named as employees of the year of their respective strategic business units.
Aguila, who represented the Internal Services Group, has been with the agency for almost two decades and provided the maintenance of the printers and other machines used for processing identification cards, which ensured quick ID processing for SBMA employees and Freeport locators.
Meanwhile Agustin, who represented the Business and Investment Group, was nominated for creating a detailed report on the valuation of demolished buildings and the comparative valuation rate of SBMA properties between land asset management and accounting departments.
Concepcion, of the Chairman and Administrator’s Group, developed an application for tablets which will enable members of the SBMA board of directors to access board meeting documents. He was also responsible in weeding out irrelevant costs in an Internet service contract, thereby saving the agency a total of P800,000.
Pascasio represented the Aviation and Maritime Operations Group and was responsible for the repair of the new container terminal before it was turned over to the International Container Terminal Services, Incorporated.
The turnover generated additional income for the SBMA.
San Jose, meanwhile, was credited for the improvement of the closed circuit television system of the agency, which saved the agency P500,000.
In the awarding ceremony, SBMA Chairman Roberto Garcia pointed out that the SBMA Employee of the Year program is unique because it includes “malasakit” – concern for one’s work – as part of the criteria.
