Staying true to its constant mission to giving Filipinos with a healthy and positive work environment while also providing customers with reliable and high-quality printing products and solutions, Brother Philippines has officially been certified by international workplace culture authority Great Place To Work.
Great Place To Work conducted its survey and assessment of Brother Philippines earlier this year, mainly polling associates on trust, pride in their work, and camaraderie—metrics that comprise the core of what makes a workplace good, in which the company ranked high. The certification is effective from May 2021 until May 2022.
The survey found that 88% of Brother Philippines associates say that the company is a great place to work, compared to 53% of employees in a typical company. The results also showed that 99% of employees felt that management was competent at running the business, 97% felt good about how the company gave back to the community, 97% agreed that special events were celebrated at work, 96% felt that Brother was a safe place to work, and 96% were confident that they had the right resources and equipment for their job.
Various Brother associates also gave their testimonies as part of the survey, primarily citing a supportive and family-like workplace culture that allows them to grow. Brother’s handling of the pandemic situation, in which the company provided employees with medical assistance, incentives, and bonuses, was also praised.
“The environment we work in is a balance of work and fun, responsibility and reward,” said Grace Vizconde, General Manager of Finance and Administration at Brother, in her testimony for Great Place To Work. “We also work as a family, looking after each other, not just in the Philippines but also globally.”
“It’s one of our main goals to foster a great working environment here at Brother Philippines, because this is how we will be able to continue providing Filipinos with the products they need. We are truly happy and proud that Brother has been recognized as a happy workplace,” said Glenn Hocson, President of Brother Philippines.
