HYUNDAI MOTOR Philippines, Inc. (HMPH) took part in Daiichi Community’s Inspire 2.0 and Shoebox Project last Christmas to bring joy to students — capping off a fruitful year for the brand. Daiichi Community is an arm under Daiichi Properties, Inc. that focuses on corporate social responsibility efforts. The engagements are annual traditions for the Philippine-based, award-winning commercial and industrial real estate developer.

In a release, HMPH said that as it moves forward into 2023, it strives to “strengthen its commitment and hopes to carry over the same spirit of positivity.”

Together with the Fort Bonifacio Development Foundation, the nonprofit social responsibility arm of Fort Bonifacio Development Corp. (developer of Bonifacio Global City), the Inspire 2.0 campaign was conducted last November. It aimed to enlighten and introduce college students under a scholarship program to different types of professions they can consider for the future. As a first-time host, HMPH gave the scholars an office tour and career talks led by HMPH Sales Department Head Victor Vela, Supervisor for After-sales Service Training Christopher Peñaflor, Assistant Manager for Human Resources Marc Dela Cruz, and Business Administration Department Head Paul Herrera.

The sessions revolved on their stories and how they found their way to working in the automotive industry. To further impart their wisdom to the future professionals, the HMPH team members also touched on various topics such as the importance of being open to various career opportunities, allowing learning and growth and exploring beyond personal circles to pursue success.

Following this, HMPH also supported the Shoebox Project, wherein donations from participating company tenants of Daiichi Properties were collected and packed. On Dec. 13, school supplies such as notebooks, crayons, notepads, rulers and school bags were distributed to elementary students of the Gat Andres Bonifacio Elementary School located in Barangay Sto. Niño, Zone 3. HMPH Managing Director Cecil Capacete gave a short message addressed to the institution’s officials and kids as well as co-partners including ING Business Shared Services, Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corp., and ADP Pharma Corp., to name a few.

“At Hyundai Motor, we are in a journey towards progress for humanity. Meaning, for us it’s not all about offering innovative cars but more so enabling quality time. After all, we seek to become not just an automotive manufacturer but a mobility solutions provider that invest for the good of the people and the planet. This is our gift to mankind. We hope we were able to share and let you experience a piece of this vision,” said Mr. Capacete.
