On October 24, 2018, RD Corporation Board of Directors represented by Mr. Roy C. Rivera – EVP Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Ms Debbie Ann R. Riveral – EVP – Chief Information Officer (CIO), signed off the Trust Agreement for the RD Group Multi-Employer Retirement Fund with the BPI Asset Management and Trust Corporation (BPI AMTC). Representing the BPI AMTC were its President Atty. Sheila Marie U. Tan and Vice President Yvette Mari V. De Peralta. The People Management Committee (PM COM) members also witnessed this important event in RD History. Through the signing of the contract, the board passed on the Multi-Employer Retirement Plan as presented by the BPI representatives, Mr. Jon Gerard Basco and Mr. Mario Gerardo Evaristo.
The primary agenda of this initiative largely revolved on the added employee benefits of a trusteed retirement plan. These benefits occur in the form of tax exemption once approved by the Bureau of Internal Revenue and other pertinent requirements of the law for tax free benefit are satisfied.
The approval of this plan signifies yet again, another momentous milestone in RD history as it exemplifies the commitment of the company to put its employees’ welfare as one of its utmost priorities. (Estela Marie O. Verana)
