Globe Telecom was named again as one of the Best Companies to Work For in Asia by top regional publisher in the human resource (HR) industry, HR Asia. The highly-reputable award-giving body recognized Globe for possessing remarkable levels of employee engagement, company culture, and employer branding.
A total of 190 companies across 10 countries (China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and UAE) competed for the coveted title of Best Company to Work For in Asia. The rigorous selection process covers a 360-degree assessment of participants’ talent strategies, employee engagement, and leadership effectiveness. HR Asia organizers invited employees of the participating companies to provide ratings and opinions on their employers. HR Asia recognized the initiatives of Globe to provide its employees the best working environment possible and various opportunities for holistic development.
“This award goes to all the employees of Globe who make the organization strong, agile, and future-ready. At Globe, we see talent as our core asset and the forefront of customer service. This is why we ensure our employees experience a strong culture of collaboration that celebrates innovation and inclusiveness,” said Globe Chief Human Resource Officer Renato Jiao.
With over 100 training courses, Globe provides employees opportunities for continuous learning through its program called Globe University. These skills and leadership training courses are powered by digital learning tools, and taught by our expert partners in the field using different methodologies.
To promote transparency and collaboration within the organization, Globe holds every quarter or semester an organization-wide town hall event called Ka-Globe Jam. This is where Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu, as well as other senior leaders, summarize and celebrate quarterly business results, achievements, and milestones of the company. Globe employees are also provided with The Hub’s feedback mechanism to voice out their concerns regarding any company policy, standard or process.
Globe also allows employees to strike a balance between work and life in its headquarters in Taguig City through the various in-house facilities: a gym, bank, salon, pharmacy, and carwash, among others. On top of their leave credits, Globe gives its employees a volunteer time off per year devoted to corporate social responsibility work.
In 2018, Globe was recognized as Asia’s Best Workplace of the Year at the Asia Corporate Excellence & Sustainability (ACES) Awards. These awards serve as a testament to the company’s philosophy of Circle of Happiness: Engaged Employees bring Happy Customers and Satisfied Shareholders. Globe emphasizes its Purpose of Treating People Right to do a Globe of Good as the foundation and core of every employee, policy, program, and initiative it practices.
