Cloudstaff named as one of the Best Companies to Work for in Asia

We are extremely pleased to share with you that last night, Cloudstaff was named as one of the Best Companies to Work for in Asia at the 2021 HR Asia Awards ceremony. The award ceremony was streamed live on the HR Asia Website on Tuesday, 16 November 2021 at 7 pm.

Cloudstaff CEO, Lloyd Ernst, graced the virtual event live from London, United Kingdom, and Andee De Guzman, our Chief Human Resources Officer, accepted the award: “On behalf of Cloudstaff Philippines, it is our honor to accept this recognition from HR Asia as being one of the best companies to work for in Asia. I would like to thank our senior leadership team, the Philippine management team, and the HR & Employee Engagement teams for all the care and unwavering support they provide. Thank you again HR Asia for this prestigious honor.” 

The HR Asia Awards recognizes companies with the best people practices, the highest levels of employee engagement, working conditions and workplace culture.

We are extremely honoured to receive this prestigious recognition and would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all of our staff and customers for the important role you play in helping us become one of the best places to work in Asia.

From the very beginning, we have always promoted the goal of ‘Building the #1 Workplace in the Philippines’, by providing our staff with regular perks, ongoing career advancement opportunities and remarkable social events. But what makes this award extra special is the fact that we have been recognized for our efforts during the global COVID-19 pandemic.

The sudden and drastic changes to the working environment forced a major re-think to the way we approach staff engagement, retention and welfare. The mega stadium rock concerts and family water park parties were put on hold but we were very pleased to introduce new initiatives such as:

  • Home delivered Perks ‘ thank you’ Boxes
  • Custom-built TV production studio for next-level online events
  • Home delivered library book service
  • Providing free mental wellness support 24/7 for staff and families in partnership with Lifeworks
  • Introduction of TeleConsult medical services with CS Doctors and nurses 
  • Saturday Live – Free monthly educational keynote sessions
  • Regular online competitions, raffles & prizes
  • 24/7 Tech on wheels – mobile IT support for home-based staff
  • Extensive community outreach & support initiatives

Every single person in Cloudstaff contributes to our corporate culture. Everyone has a voice, everyone is important and we recognize and support each person’s unique journey. Even though we face many challenges, we face them together and we all play our part in creating a very special workplace that we all love.

Cloudstaff is an industry leader in staff satisfaction and retention and joins other notable recipients including Microsoft, American Express, Startek, and Maersk as we work together to improve working conditions for staff in the Philippines.
