To keep up with an ever-evolving industry while catering to customers and setting up sellers for success, eCommerce pioneer Lazada Philippines ensures that its employees do not get left behind. Its team of passionate and high-energy professionals are always and properly taken care of, benefiting from the resources Lazada provides that foster growth on an individual and organizational level.
As a testament to how Lazada Philippines puts their employees at the heart of everything they do, the company received the Great Place to Work Certification. The honor is bestowed by data scientists behind the “Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For” list, who gather and evaluate employee high-performance cultures.
According to the certification results, 77% of employees at Lazada Philippines say that the company is a great place to work compared to 53% of employees at a typical Global company. Moreover, more than 90% of employees recommend Lazada as a fantastic workplace, saying that they see themselves staying with the company in the next two years.
“We always value our people, and I’m proud to share our being Great Place to Work certified with all Lazadians,” Lazada PH CEO Carlos Barrera said.
According to the Great Place to Work Certification body, a great workplace transcends having fancy parties and amazing benefits. More than anything, it has more to do with the “trust employees have with their leaders, the pride they have with their jobs, and the happiness they experience with their colleagues.”
Lazada continues to grow and mature as an organization as it creates meaningful employment opportunities and functions that everyone can take pride in. The company harnesses the dynamism of its young team and invests in their growth, learning and development, who at their age already manage mega-campaigns that drive business performance. Young Lazazdians comprise the leadership team, showing how Lazada values qualifications over mere seniority.
One of the efforts is the introduction of Pause Wednesdays, which states no meeting shall be held on Wednesday mornings. Another is Block Leave that encourages employees to take a whole week off from work to get a well-deserved break and recharge.
Lazada holds engaging company-wide pursuits as well, from occasion-specific efforts that celebrate Halloween, Oktoberfest, and Christmas, to team-based activities such as recognition events. Meanwhile, Special Interest Groups allow Lazadians to find their tribe who share common interests.
To keep Lazada employees engaged with each other and the teams tight-knit, there’s a plethora of wellness initiatives. This includes Fitness Challenge and group classes and activities, such as spinning, painting sessions, coffee art, and movie nights, among others.
Of course, Lazada values diversity and inclusivity. The team celebrates Women’s Month, Pride Month, and other special occasions hand-in-hand with its employees. Acknowledging Lazadians that prefer to spend a large part of their day in the office, Lazada also makes sure that they have a grand and enjoyable time at the office with access to resting pods, collaboration spaces, a full-service pantry, and more.
And throughout their employee journey, Lazadians experience having the company being attuned closely to their various needs. Lazada curates various programs and policies designed to support their personal well-being, and is addressing their diverse set of needs by currently refreshing its flexible suite of benefits.
“2022 has been an incredible year for Lazada, and we are just getting started. We made significant changes, overcame challenges, and rallied to be bolder in our decisions. I believe we have the best talents, who help create positive impact among our customers, communities and partners, and look forward to what we are going to achieve this year and beyond,” Barrera shared.
