MANILA – BDO Unibank, the country’s largest bank in terms of assets, was the only Philippine financial institution to be named in the Top 50 of Forbes’ Best Employers in the world for 2017.
The Forbes list is based on the publication’s 2017 Global 2000 rankings, which featured publicly-listed companies from 58 countries.
The Sy-led bank placed 23rd in the prestigious list, after Forbes commissioned Statista, an online statistics and market research firm, to facilitate a survey and analysis of more than 360,000 global recommendations.
Employees from around the world were asked to rate their own employer and the likelihood of them recommending their company to a friend or family member. The respondents were also asked to recommend other employers they admired.
This is the second time, a press release from BDO pointed out, that an independent entity has in recent weeks made a sound endorsement of BDO as a top employer.
Online recruitment site Jobstreet.com announced in September that BDO placed 6th overall in the category of “Top Ten Companies Filipinos Aspire to Work For,” and was cited for its global reach, job security, and work-life balance. Jobstreet conducted a survey involving 3,658 Jobstreet.com account holders.
BDO said it continues to be active in recruitment events across various regions in the country while also offering career opportunities through its overseas offices to support global operations.
BDO Unibank, Inc. is a full-service universal bank which provides a wide range of corporate and retail banking services.
BDO has over 1,100 operating branches and over 3,800 ATMs nationwide. It also has a full-service branch in Hong Kong as well as 26 overseas remittance and representative offices in Asia, Europe, North America and the Middle East.
