Globe took home three awards at the recent 18th Annual International Business Awards. The company took a Gold Stevie to the Most Valuable Corporate Response for keeping its employees and customers #SafeAtHome during the pandemic.
Considered outstanding, Globe’s “COVID response was based on communication and people, meeting many needs that suddenly hit the social and workplace scene. There was a clear and direct vision. The response was broad and quick, and it made a significant difference for people who were isolated. “
Some of Globe’s award-winning programs include Globe Labs, its own PCR testing facility, Thursday By The Desk, which discouraged meetings every Thursday to make way for uninterrupted, productive work, and HopeChat, which connects employees with mental health experts via Messenger. .
Globe also earned a Silver Stevie for Achievement in Human Resources for its various initiatives on employee engagement, digital support, holistic wellness, and learning and development that have improved the organization’s relationship with its employees. According to Willis Towers Watson’s 2020 iSpeak Employee Engagement Survey, employee engagement was 93%, the highest in five years, despite the challenges of the pandemic. Globe is the only Philippine company that is part of the WTW High Performance Organizations.
For its many milestones since 2019, which had a positive impact on both the telecommunications industry and the country, Globe also received the Silver Stevie award in the Company of the Year category, telecommunications division.
“During the pandemic, we stood by our employees, supporting them with mental health programs, digital podcasts to keep them connected, wellness seminars, and exclusive discounts on productivity items to help them create their best work at home. We made our presence felt through programs that care,“Said Ato Jiao, Globe’s Director of Human Resources.
