For years, ECOP has been the beacon of leadership in the Philippine business landscape that has transcended its dutiful representation not only towards the interest of its member establishments but also for the general welfare - in harmony - of labor and industry alike. With the ever evolving legal requirement in labor and business, ECOP has stood its ground despite the odds of social clamor, political pressure and shifting economic situations; and consistently forged its role as a pervading voice of employers in the country. Kudos to a job well done!

The networking is incredibly valuable. There are dozens of events every year which give small business owners a chance to meet one another. Also, ECOP helped APW gain wide visibility with current and future clients, and the speakers and their topics teach our employees, of all generations, the valuable leadership skills that are critical to their professional development.”
