Microsoft PHL gets HR Asia’s nod


Microsoft Philippines Inc., the local unit of the United States-based software giant, was recognized by HR Asia for the second consecutive year as one of the best companies to work for in Asia.

The organization received this distinction for its exemplary performance in workplace excellence, human capital development, and outstanding employee engagement, the company said.

“Our efforts and our commitment to our people are built on our mission as an organization: to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more,” Grace Dela Cruz, human resources director of Microsoft Philippines, said.

“We’re honored by this distinction and in receiving it, reaffirm our commitment to our team to continue providing them with an environment where they can bring their authentic selves every day—one that is diverse and inclusive—and most importantly, a platform where they can bring their passions, and be empowered to drive positive outcomes for themselves and those around them.”

The company said its strategy focuses on empowering its employees through proactive learning and development, rewards and recognition, extensive employee engagement and holistic health and wellness programs built on a diverse, inclusive and accessible culture.

In light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the organization augmented its efforts to prioritize the safety and wellbeing of its people, by expanding its overall healthcare support framework for employees and their families as well as holistic wellness programs to support mental and physical wellbeing.
