At the core of Ayala are four corporate values: integrity, long-term vision, empowering leadership, and commitment to national development.
Integrity means "doing the right thing"—being held accountable for all our actions. And doing the right thing has earned Ayala a commanding position of trust among its stakeholders. But integrity starts with individuals, the kind of individuals we engage at Ayala. Their individual ethics are perpetuated and reinforced by our corporate culture.
Ayala's track record of success was built by looking to the future. In banking, real estate, telecommunications, and utilities, our CEOs had a vision that they transformed into reality by fostering in all our Ayala citizens the spirit of entrepreneurship, excellence, synergy and by rewarding intelligent risk-taking while holding each one accountable for doing the best thing today in order to reap tomorrow's rewards.
At Ayala, we realize that leaders today need to manage a whole range of issues in increasingly complex situations. These challenges can only be met by empowering people at all levels of the organization to make decisions and to take action, within the framework of a shared vision and a shared corporate culture of innovation, responsibility and accountability.
Commitment to National Development
We take seriously our responsibilities as corporate citizens over and above compliance with the rule of law. We believe that beyond our business objectives, we must also do our share in nation building through programs in corporate social responsibility that help develop individuals, communities, and the country as a whole.
