Aboitiz Construction recently inked a partnership with the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) Provincial Office – Bukidnon and Maces Skills Training Institute, Inc. to train 25 residents of Barangay Capital Angel in Malaybalay City, Bukidnon. This is in line with Aboitiz Construction’s commitment to advancing businesses and communities by upskilling and providing job opportunities to many Filipinos. For this partnership, most of the trainees are indigenous Filipinos from the Talaandig tribe.

Once the trainees pass the assessment and earn the necessary certifications, they will be hired and deployed in Aboitiz Construction’s maintenance services project in Surigao del Norte. 

The partnership signing event, held last March 27, was attended by TESDA Region X Provincial Director for Bukidnon John Simborios, Aboitiz Construction Human Resources Representatives June Donald Ecaranum and Norven Pitogo, and Maces President and Administrator Erwin Trinidad.

“At Aboitiz Construction, we continue to provide employment for many Filipinos and prioritize the hiring of local residents from nearby municipalities and regions. Through our corporate social responsibility initiatives, we aim to upskill our workers and enable them to become more equipped with the demands of the construction industry,” said Aboitiz Construction Assistant Vice President Controller and Officer-in-Charge Head of Human Resources and Corporate Shared Services Charisse De Villa.

In 2022, Aboitiz Construction partnered with private training centers accredited by TESDA in Cebu and Batangas to upskill 50 individuals in scaffolding and 14 in welding.


Last year, Aboitiz Construction partnered with TESDA-accredited training centers in Cebu (School for Primary) and Batangas (Excelsior Center for Excellence) to upskill a total of 64 individuals in scaffolding and shielded metal arc welding. Most of the graduates were hired and deployed in the firm’s project sites while others are reserved for future projects.

Aboitiz Construction takes pride in providing job opportunities for residents of several communities in the country. In 2022, out of the 3,474 skilled workers, 68% or 2,378 were sourced from communities where the company operates. This is a testament to its massive transformative purpose of building for businesses to prosper and for communities to thrive.|
