MANILA, PHILIPPINES — For the fourth consecutive year, Mondelez Philippines, one of the country’s leading snacking companies, was once again the recipient of the Best Companies to Work For in 2023 by HR Asia. An organization regarded as one of the region’s authorities for Human Resources (HR) professionals, HR Asia awards companies which demonstrate high levels of workplace engagement and culture, as well as the companies that implement the best HR practices in Asia.
“Our fourth win in a row is a testament to our dedication to fostering an incredible workplace culture of open communication; growth opportunity; and work-life harmony,” said Mondelez Philippines People Lead April Valencia. “We are proud of the culture we have built for our people, and we hope this award continues to inspire our team to be part of strengthening our great place to work.”
On its 60th Anniversary, Mondelez Philippines continues to empower its consumers to snack right – with the right snack, for the right moment, and made the right way. For the company, making snacks the right way means prioritizing the well-being of its employees through various training and engagements; all while strengthening their position as makers and bakers of some of the country’s favorite snacks.
In addition to the award from HR Asia, Mondelez Philippines was also recognized by the HR Excellence Awards. For 2023, the company was the recipient of the Bronze award for Excellence in HR Innovation.
The award was given as recognition for Mondelez Philippines’ use of Virtual Reality (VR) as a new immersive approach to onboarding new employees – leveraging new technologies as a way to improve its current HR practices.
“At Mondelez Philippines, we’re all about finding ways to rethink, reshape, and reimagine our way of managing our workspaces,” said Mondelēz International Talent Acquisition Lead for Southeast Asia Shine Rodriguez. “By capitalizing on emerging technologies like VR, which appeal to Gen Z audiences, we are providing more meaningful and enjoyable ways to connect with potential employees.”
April concluded, “Our work does not stop here. As one of the country’s leading snacks companies, we will continue to work harder in making sure that our organization lives up to our purpose of Snacking Made Right.”
