Hosted by the Association of Human Resources Managers in the Hospitality Industry (AHRM), this prestigious award recognizes outstanding contributions within the hospitality sector.
Established in 1975, AHRM has been a beacon for recognizing excellence in the hotel and restaurant industry. The journey began with the inception of the “Gawad Lingkod Award” in 1984, a pioneering service excellence program honoring the contributions of rank-and file-staff. Evolving with the times, the program transitioned into the “Mabuhay Awards” in 1995, encompassing a broader spectrum that includes supervisors and managers.
Mr. Ascue’s triumph in the “Manager of the Year” category is a testament to his exceptional leadership, strategic vision, and unwavering dedication to the hospitality industry. From a pool of 33 finalists representing premier establishments nationwide, Mr. Ascue emerged as the epitome of managerial prowess.
The Mabuhay Awards evaluation criteria, based on business unit development, team motivation, situational and functional leadership, strategic planning, decision-making, and problem-solving, underscored Mr. Ascue’s exemplary contributions.
Additionally, the 7Ms—Maka-Diyos (Integrity), Makatao at Masayahin (Hospitality and Service), Makabansa (Patriotism), May Pag-Asa (Resilience), May Bayanihan (Teamwork), Maka-Kalikasan (Environmentalism), and commitment to professional development—further highlighted his holistic approach to leadership.
As one of the youngest Hotel Managers within Robinsons Hotels and Resorts, Mr. Ascue’s journey is marked by a track record of success. Prior to his current role, he served as the Cluster Assistant Director of Sales for Luzon, navigating challenges posed by the pandemic and contributing significantly to the group’s pre-opening properties.
