When it comes to brands, Filipinos easily distinguish dependable and noteworthy establishments from the rest with clear name recall – especially if the brands have served them well through years of establishing great customer relations from initial dealings to after sales.

This is one of the reasons why The Filipino Times Awards has continuously recognized brands here in the UAE that has remained on top of mind and touched the hearts of almost a million Filipinos in the country as the brands continue to provide them with service worthy of their trust and loyalty.

Back-to-back recognition
One of the TFT Awards’ most prominent awardees is LBC who has garnered the distinction as the only company who has successfully held a ‘4-peat’ in being hailed as the Preferred Freight Forwarding Company as more and more Filipinos continue to vote and patronize their services.

“The Filipino Times is unique because it is a platform for Filipinos, run by Filipinos, with a Filipino perspective in a global environment. As the recipient of the Preferred Freight Forwarding Company Award for the past four years, we at LBC are thrilled to have built and sustained the trust of the Filipino community in the UAE. We strive to honor that trust by continuing to connect with the community and innovating our products and services to better suit the Global Filipino’s evolving needs,” shares LBC’s Vice President for the Middle East, Mark Agalo-os.

Continuous growth
While relatively new in the industry, NMC Mabuhay Clinic earned its rightful reward with the vote of the masses as their Preferred Healthcare Provider as one of the pioneers in creating a healthcare institution that has an all-Filipino staff, ready to cater for the Filipino public.

“The Filipino Times Awards made a huge impact for NMC Mabuhay Clinic as a brand in connecting to the Filipino community in UAE in winning as the Preferred Healthcare Provider of the Year last 2018. With its growing number of patients and the acknowledgement after the TFT Awards, our platform in helping the Filipino community expanded and we gained more confidence and support to continue to serve our fellow Filipinos the best way we can,” shares NMC’s Senior Marketing Executive, Jan Carlo Bayutas.

Determination
Bayutas furthers that winning the TFT Awards was an affirmation of their efforts in nursing the Filipino community towards better health: “The numbers of Filipino patients increased significantly since we won the Filipino Times Awards last year. We became well known not only as NMC Specialty Hospital but also a Filipino Healthcare provider in Abu Dhabi which I can say one of the Leading Filipino Clinics here in the city.”

Agalo-os emphasized that the Filipinos’ trust in their brand is a testament to their unyielding efforts to act as reliable bridge that connects OFWs from the UAE to their loved ones back in the Philippines: “The Preferred Freight Forwarding Company Award is the community’s recognition of LBC’s efforts to serve our kababayans and a reaffirmation of LBC’s relentless pursuit to move the community that we love as we recognize that more than just moving packages or goods, is delivering to their loved ones back home what represents the hard work and resiliency of the Global Filipino. For us, this is a mark of the trust that Filipinos have and continue to have with LBC. This pushes us to always move forward towards providing the best service to meet our customers’ evolving needs.”

Voting is now open for this year’s The Filipino Times Awards – Brands category. To vote for the brand that you love, just log on to www.thefilipinotimesawards.com.
