Local Economic Development

 

Expanding Opportunities

 

True community development means benefits are felt directly by people. This is why we make sure that our project cycle helps contribute to local economies directly or indirectly. From land development and construction to operations, we prioritize hiring within the community, city, or province where we are located and give opportunities to local businesses and brands.

As we are currently present in 55 growth centers across the Philippines, we expand our role as catalysts and engines of growth through our large-scale, masterplanned mixed-use communities. We continue to contribute to employment in Metro Manila and provinces in Luzon, and in the past five years we started to grow our investments in Palawan, Western and Central Visayas, and in the Northern and Davao regions in Mindanao. With sustained growth, our hotels, construction and property management businesses will continue to employ more Filipino workers to build and support Ayala Land's products. In 2015, these businesses provided jobs to more than 24,000 people with around 80% hired locally.

Not only do Ayala Land’s estates and commercial centers provide quality spaces that the public can enjoy, they are also able to assist non-profit organizations by providing them opportunities to interact with their publics, raise awareness, and support their sustainability.

Community partners are also given importance in the project development cycle. As good corporate citizens, project teams collaborate with local government units in providing much-needed assistance in education, disaster rehabilitation, and community infrastructure. From 2010 to 2015, Ayala Land has invested around P726 million in these initiatives. Ayala Land has also started to invest in human capital required by our developments through manpower development trainings for potential construction, hotel, and property management personnel.
