It was in 1996 when Ms. Elizabeth “Ka Ely” Tan and her group was invited over to work at Philippine Life – back then known as All Asia life Assurance Corporation. In this 16-year period she and her boss SAVP Flora Tayo, Head of Tayo Operations, has remained loyal to the company that has given so much fulfillment in her life.
Today, Ka Ely is the Marketing Director overseeing Philippine Life’s nationwide roster of agents. It is a position full of challenges but, as she attests, completely rewarding as well. “The best thing about Philippine Life is its stability,” Ka Ely avers. “And in our profession we’re not just after the compensation. It’s the service we render – we are educators – we educate people on the value of life insurance. In this regard, Ka Ely finds fulfillment in helping people through many difficult times.
Philippine Life regularly rewards employees whenever certain targets are met or for doing just a really good job. Ka Ely says that it is important to love your work, your family, and the company. “The work is hard, but in insurance it is very rewarding,” she beams. “Aside from the commissions, there are company incentives like the opportunity to vacation abroad, all expenses paid. We’re treated like kings and queens.” Many of Ka Ely’s memorable company-sponsored trips include destinations such as Rome, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Bangkok among others.
Ka Ely describes her job as continuing to bring in and developing new sales associates into Philippine Life. “The income is unlimited and the company is stable. Here, there is no retirement. As long as you keep working, you keep earning.” She adds, “The ultimate testimony to that is what we have achieved here in the company.” Ka Ely enjoys a comfortable life already in a relatively short span of time. “Of course, all of it is earned through hard work and patience. Sa insurance, walang tamad,” she adds with a smile.
Nurturing its employees and sales associates, as much as their clients, has made Philippine Life one of the most personable companies out there hence our slogan “Your Friends for Life”. It is a mantra that Ka Ely knows well, “The insurance service is, practically, for life. Any time our clients have a concern we’re there for them. Our company is secure.
“Our operations has always been number 1 and our families have always been well provided for so I can’t even think about going to another company anymore. I am Secure with Philippine Life.”
