Thursday, January 7, Microsoft Philippines was recently named one of the ‘Best Companies to Work for in Asia 2020’ by HR Asia.
The organization was recognized for its performance in workplace excellence, human capital development, and outstanding employee engagement.
HR Asia is one of the most recognizable and authoritative HR publications in the world.
Jan Philippe Tanchi, Human Resources Director of Microsoft Philippines said, “This award means everything to us as an organization both globally, and here in the Philippines. We exist to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more—a mission that only comes to life through our people.”
“We’re proud to receive this great distinction and are committed to continuing providing our people with an inclusive workplace and community that lives up to our values, and empowers them to be their best, most authentic selves every day,” he added.
Due to the pandemic, the awarding ceremonies were conducted virtually. The event highlighted the extraordinary efforts of organizations that exemplified dedication to their employees, especially in what has been a year of uncertainty and unprecedented challenges.
“We must never forget the sacrifices of our own employees to keep the economy going. Since 2013 we have recognized companies that placed their employees front and center in everything they do. This year is no different. The recipients of this year’s awards have shown not only are you the best companies to work for in Asia but more importantly, you are able to show empathy and care for your employees during the darkest moments of fear and uncertainty,” said Datuk William Ng, Group Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Business Media International, the publisher of HR Asia.
