Board Self-Assessment

The annual Board evaluation is aimed to help the directors to thoroughly review their performance and understand their roles and responsibilities. The periodic review and evaluation of the Board’s performance as a body, the board committees, the individual directors, the Chairman, the President and CEO and Key Officers show how the aforementioned should perform their responsibilities effectively. In addition, it provides a means to assess a director’s attendance at board and committee meetings and participation in boardroom discussions.

Members of the Board conduct collective and individual evaluation of the Board performance through a Board Self-Assessment exercise. In 2021, JGSHI engaged Good Governance Advocates and Practitioners of the Philippines (GGAPP) as its independent Third Party Board Evaluator in the conduct of the Board Self-Assessment.
