2020 was a challenging year for most people and organizations in the Philippines. But from its ashes rose a unique breed of heroes, who stood bravely to face and overcome the most unfavourable circumstances and went beyond self to care for and provide the needs of others.
Great Place to Work® wishes to honor the heroism of Filipino workers and employers as we recognize the Philippines Best Workplaces 2021 on March 3, 2021 at 3:00 PM. On this momentous occasion, we will shine the spotlight on organizations who are at the forefront of this cause – with leaders who are genuinely concerned for their people, and employees who support not just their colleagues, but also put extra effort into reaching out to communities in need.
Join us in this endeavour, as we celebrate the triumph of the Filipino spirit.
“When the going gets tough, we draw inspiration from those around us to keep on going.”
As we celebrate the heroism of Filipino workers and employers, we would love to hear your stories and put names on the faces that made your organizations great amidst the global pandemic. We invite you to share your heart-warming tributes for colleagues and leaders that became your heroes in the past months.
Despite education being a basic human right, not every child has the privilege or access to enjoy this right. The Great Place to Work-Certified™ community in the Philippines is committed to creating a better experience not only for their people but also for the society.
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in schools shut all across the world. Our public education system was not built, nor prepared, to cope with a situation like this.
In line with our event theme , “Heroism”, Great Place to Work-Certified™ community is supporting our charity of choice, the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation (YBH), a national movement set up to help children have better access to education. We are supporting YBH’s “Educational Hub” initiative by providing six laptops, working internet access with a year’s subscription, and a working printer with an initial stock of ink and bond papers, to YBH’s adopted schools. With these resources, we are able to equip the learners with resources that will enable them to learn and finish schooling even under the pandemic.
We ask that you consider partnering with us in contributing to YBH’s “Educational Hub” initiative. In so doing, collectively, we are able to advance in our shared mission of building a better world by making education accessible For ALL. Great Workplaces work hand in hand to be better for the business, better for the people and better for the community.
