Asticom Technology, a subsidiary of the Globe Group, has achieved the prestigious Great Place to Work® certification in the Philippines for its people-focused initiatives and programs.
The Certification, handed out by the Great Place to Work® Institute, assesses companies through research-based Trust Index surveys, measuring employee perceptions of fairness, inclusivity, and workplace safety. Those that score at least 65% on the survey earn the certification.
Based on survey results, 92% of Asticom employees believe the company is a safe place to work, with the leadership receiving a trust level of 86%. Meanwhile, 84% believe that management promotes inclusivity and fairness at work.
To ensure workplace safety, Asticom enacted policies that condemn rudeness, bullying and harassment, be it physical, verbal, or emotional. As a people-focused organization, Asticom also embraces people of all genders, ethnicities, ages, impairments, sexual orientations, and cultural backgrounds.
The company encourages an open and diverse environment for its people to grow and thrive, a culture driven by a woman who is at the forefront of its operations.
Asticom Group of Companies President and CEO Mharicar Castillo-Reyes expressed gratitude to Asticom employees for their trust and dedication to the company.
“We are very much thankful to the people of Asticom for their continued trust and commitment to the purpose of the company. We are honored that our work is recognized by the Great Place to Work Institute.
