At Globe, the workplace doubles as a playground for the imagination. In its headquarters in Taguig City, employees can strike a balance between work and life through various in-house facilities: a gym, bank, salon, pharmacy, and carwash, among others.

Globe Telecom was recognized as Asia’s Best Workplace of the Year at the Asia Corporate Excellence & Sustainability Awards (ACES). This is a testament to its efforts in creating the most wonderful experience possible for each of its about 8,000 employees nationwide.

Holistic growth for employees

Globe provides employees opportunities for continuous learning through its program called Globe University. This offers over 100 skills and leadership training courses. Over 2,900 people have benefited and almost 1000 leaders have emerged from these courses alone. These courses are powered by digital learning tools, and taught by our expert partners in the field using different methodologies.

Every quarter or semester, Globe holds an organization-wide town hall event called Ka-Globe Jam. This is where its senior leaders, led by Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu, summarize and celebrate quarterly business results, achievements, and milestones of the company. Through the feedback mechanism of The Hub, Globe identifies employee 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.

Keeping in mind that every employee’s unique needs, Globe has created the My Choice Flexible Benefits Program. This gives employees the opportunity to customize their benefits to suit not only their needs but their dependents as well.

On top of their leave credits, Globe decided to give each employee two days of volunteer time-off per year devoted to corporate social responsibility work. In 2017, volunteerism in Globe reached an all-time high of 52.8% of total employee base, with over 3,000 employees contributing over 60,000 man-hours.
