PLDT monitors and evaluates the effectiveness of its corporate governance (CG) through the following, among other initiatives: (i) an annual performance self-assessment conducted by the Board and the Board Committees, (ii) the periodic review of the effectiveness of the implementation of the Company’s CG policies, (iii) the annual compliance evaluation conducted by Management, and other tools employed to monitor the implementation of the CG policies.
Our Board conducts a self-assessment each calendar year to evaluate the performance of the Board as a whole, the Board Committees and the individual directors. The process, which includes an evaluation of the performance of the CEO and management, enables the Board to identify strengths and areas for improvement and to elicit individual director’s feedback and views on the Company’s strategy, performance and future direction.
Similarly, each Board Committee also conducts an annual self-assessment of its performance. The members of the Board and Board Committees accomplish their respective Self-Assessment Questionnaires for this purpose. The Board Self-Assessment Questionnaire contains the following criteria based on the leading practices and principles on good governance: (1) for the Board: Leadership, Roles and Responsibilities, Independence, Stewardship, Reporting and Disclosure, Shareholders' Benefits and Training; (2) for individual Directors: the specific duties and responsibilities of a director and (3) for the Board Committees: Performance and Compliance. Each Board Committee Self-Assessment Questionnaire contains the following criteria: Performance & Compliance and Committee Governance. The results of the assessment process are duly reported to, and discussed as necessary, by the Board.
The Company's CG policies, including the Code of Ethics, are reviewed at least once every two years to ensure that they are appropriate for PLDT, benchmarked with global best practices, and compliant with applicable law and regulations.
PLDT monitors and evaluates its compliance with CG Rules through a cross-functional evaluation system whereby the heads of the various business and support groups/units conduct an evaluation of their group/unit's CG compliance. The periodic process uses an evaluation questionnaire consisting of the governance standards set forth in the Code of Corporate Governance for Publicly-Listed Companies which are applicable and relevant to their respective functions. The results of the evaluation conducted by the heads are consolidated as input to the Company's Integrated Annual Corporate Governance Report (I-ACGR) submitted to the SEC and PSE.
The level of observance of the CG Rules and the principles of accountability, integrity, fairness, and transparency, are monitored through the results of online quizzes incorporated into online learning modules, as well as questions propounded during learning interventions, reports to the CGO of complaints or violations of CG and other Company policies, and feedback from collaboration with various business units of the Company.
