Union Bank of the Philippines (UnionBank) recently won a Silver Stevie for Employer of the Year – banking at the 2020 Stevie Awards for Great Employers.
This is the bank’s second Stevie Award for Employer of the Year after receiving a Gold Stevie for the same category in 2017.
The Stevie Awards for Great Employers recognize the world’s best employers and the human resources professionals, teams, achievements and HR-related products and suppliers who help to create and drive great places to work.
For this year’s Stevie, over 700 nominations for organizations of all sizes worldwide were submitted in various HR-related categories.
UnionBank was again recognized for staying true to its commitment to build capabilities among its workforce to ensure that no one gets left behind amid the changing times.
As the bank is leveraging its digital expertise to move into new business models and power financial inclusion in the country, it is also relentless in its efforts to encourage its employees to participate in the quest for financial inclusion.
In the past four years, UnionBank has turned into a Digital Bank, an API Gateway, an app developer, and a fintech company.
Its swift growth can be attributed to its pursuit of creating an agile work environment focused on culture, capability, leadership and employee experience.
“In the fifth edition of the Stevie Awards for Great Employers, the judges were impressed by the Stevie winners who – during the crises we’ve confronted this year – continue to dedicate each day to making the lives of their employees and teams better through training, software, work-from-home plans, and more. We are pleased to celebrate them in 2020 and look forward to what they will accomplish in 2021,” said Maggie Gallagher, president of the Stevie Awards.
The fifth annual Stevie Awards for Great Employers will hold a virtual ceremony on Nov. 5, 2020.
In 2018, UnionBank also received two accolades in the third annual Stevie Awards for Great Employers held in New York – a Bronze Stevie Award for “One UnionBanker Hub, One Place Just for U” in the Achievement for HR technology category and a Silver Stevie Award for Michelle Rubio as Chief Human Resource Officer of the Year.
