Asia Business Leaders Awards 2017

DDI Presents Asia Talent Management Award

The Asia Business Leaders Awards 2017 ceremony was held in Shanghai on the 2nd of November, 2017. This marks DDI’s 14th consecutive year as a CNBC research partner for this prestigious event. The Asia Talent Management Award was presented to Ms. Rizalina G. Mantaring, CEO and Country Head for Sun Life Financial in the Philippines, for her leadership and dedication to hiring, training, and mentoring over 1,000 employees.

Mantaring is passionate about developing talent and Sun Life encourages a “3E Development Approach”: Experiential, Exposure, and Education. The company offers leadership development programs, including a program with Duke University, and encourages participation in industry associations. Mantaring is actively involved in mentoring high-potential employees, and the company creates special projects to develop them in different aspects of the company. Thanks to her efforts in training and development, 65% of executives have risen through the ranks and come from within Sun Life. Another significant achievement is the company’s Global Engagement Index of 90%, a testament to Mantaring’s commitment to employee engagement.

As CNBC’s Research Partner, DDI conducts in-depth, face-to-face interviews with shortlisted CEOs to assess their leadership qualities based on criteria such as strategy formulation and execution, talent management, innovation, and social contribution. Each year, DDI conducts in-depth interviews with top CEOs across 10 countries (China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand) and participates in the judging panel to determine the winners.

CNBC, First in Business Worldwide, pioneered the Asia Business Leaders Awards (ABLA) to acknowledge exceptional CEOs across the region. Recipients of the awards are business visionaries behind many of today’s outstanding corporate success stories. They epitomize the core values of a successful leader – strength, innovation, ingenuity, knowledge and foresight – values that are much needed in order to achieve success in today’s global economy.
