Ayala-led Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) was recognized as the Best Employer Brand on LinkedIn for successfully engaging with its talents through meaningful and relevant content. This further cemented the bank’s position as an employer of choice, with the aim of contributing to a better Philippines.
BPI won the award for companies with over 10,000 employees who follow and engage in its LinkedIn account. The awardees were selected by LinkedIn Philippines based on data analysis that examined each company’s utilization and engagement data to determine their ability to leverage LinkedIn Talent Solutions and make a significant impact within the organization.
Maria Virginia Eala, BPI Chief Human Resources Officer, said the award is a testament of the Bank’s consistent efforts to create more relevant programs for the employees’ career growth and development.
“We really make sure that we take care of our employees and set them up for success because they are the heart of BPI. The 171-year history of the Bank would not have been possible if not for them. It is our mission to cultivate in them our core values of excellence, integrity, and customer obsession to develop happier, engaged, motivated and customer-focused professionals. We are grateful to LinkedIn Philippines for recognizing our efforts and inspiring us to do more,” Eala said.
The award was given by LinkedIn Philippines, the largest business and employment-focused social media platform, in the recently held LinkedIn Talent Awards at Shangri-La BGC in Taguig City. The program recognizes companies in the Philippines leading the future of work by demonstrating remarkable adaptability, innovation, and creativity.
“BPI believes in creating a nurturing and inclusive environment where employees feel proud of being ambassadors of the brand. A happy employee delivers excellent service to customers,” Eala added.
Aside from the award, BPI was also selected as a finalist for the Diversity Champion Award for initiating and inspiring meaningful conversations around diversity, inclusion, belonging and equity.
BPI—the oldest bank in the country and Southeast Asia—was recognized in 2020 as the Best Bank in the Philippines by Euromoney, the prestigious global financial publication. From being the first bank in the country to offer access via Automated Teller Machines (ATM), BPI recently marked another first. In addition to its more than 750 brick-and-mortar banks nationwide, BPI recently opened its first ever Flagship Store in e-commerce site Lazada in February.
The bank continues to reinvent itself and the Philippine banking experience through digitalization, customer service, and sustainability.
