The country’s leading consumer finance company Home Credit Philippines was named Gold Stevie® awardee in the ninth annual Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards for the Innovative Use of Technology in Human Resources category. The award recognizes technology-driven human resource initiatives of Home Credit Philippines as “a way to connect, engage and transform people as they use technology to adapt to the future of human resource in the Philippines.”
Since the start of the pandemic in 2020, Home Credit Philippines has been focusing on creating initiatives driven by technology to connect and engage with its employees all over the country and help streamline the company’s overall processes.
As a global company with more than 13 thousand employees in the country alone, Home Credit Philippines always makes its people the core of its business. In early 2021, the company launched its HR Gateway and Intranet to help HR Management connect and engage with its employees on a daily basis. It also developed an E-recruitment portal that serves as its primary gateway for all candidate applications. The portal can integrate with external job bulletins that allow recruiters to reach a diverse set of applicants pool.
“We at Home Credit Philippines are proud of this achievement which testifies our commitment to putting our people at the heart of all our actions and decisions. The dedication and commitment of our employees serve as the driving force and our motivation to stay focused on creating ways and initiatives to provide them easy access to all our resources,” shares Home Credit Philippines’ Chief People Officer, Alpha Omega Aquino.
“As we continue looking for other opportunities to further improve our processes, we at Home Credit Philippines will stay committed to helping our employees and future talents through the power of technology and continue to be at the forefront of innovation in the Philippine HR landscape.” Alpha added.
