AmCham came to life in 1902 as the Manila Coffee Round Table and later as Manila Merchants Association. Incorporated in 1920, it has since then recognized and reconfirmed the commitment of American business to the development and welfare of the Philippines and the Filipino people.
This is a commitment of long-standing, as its mission statement declares:
The Chamber exists to serve the interests of U.S. businesses through the participation of members in promoting their long-term objectives while contributing to the civic and economic development of the Philippines.”
A lot of companies turned to Analytics in order to streamline their operations and business processes. Analytics also help companies identify upcoming opportunities, and even threats. In an article published by Michigan State University, the three most sought-after goals why companies used Data Analytics were the ability to reduce costs, increase profitability and improve risk management.
Furthermore, data analytics can also be used by employers to make better and wise decision-making, and analyze the current trends in the global market and to know how they will satisfy their loyal customers and new customers - which can lead to new, better, and worthy products or services. The challenges for companies, however, are to understand how analytics can help their business and begin and address any issues they believe are most important to short- and long-term success.
The Chamber supports any effort to up-skill and re-skill employees as we bounce back from the disruption brought on by the pandemic.
