Consumer finance company Home Credit Philippines (Home Credit) has joined the Philippine Business Coalition for Women Empowerment (PBCWE) and the Philippine LGBT Chamber of Commerce (PLCC) to further cement its commitment to achieving gender equality and inclusion in the workplace.
“We at Home Credit celebrate all facets of diversity,” said Renata Mrazova, International CPO, Home Credit. “Our global commitment to promoting equality and inclusion among our employees is present in all markets where Home Credit is operating. We found beauty by being represented by a diverse roster of talents and recognizing each individual regardless of their nationality, origin, orientation, identity, etc. We want to make Home Credit a safe place — a home that embraces diversity and inclusion for our employees.”
This partnership of Home Credit Philippines with PBCWE and PLCC will help the company engage in policy reform work for gender equality and explore initiatives that will promote diversity, respect, fairness, empowerment, and equality in the workplace. Both organizations are also set to put structure to the DEI efforts of Home Credit Philippines and create diverse and systematic initiatives for its employees.
“We take pride in this milestone as this signifies our commitment to creating programs that give our employees equal rights and opportunities in the workplace,” said Omega Aquino, CPO, Philippines, Home Credit. “We are confident that through this partnership, we will create a safer and healthier environment for all our employees in the company.
As part of the process, Home Credit Philippines will undergo the Gender Equality Assessment, Results, and Strategies (GEARS), an assessment tool that will analyze and understand the current state of Workplace Gender Equality (WGE) within the company. GEARS will provide Philippine-specific data to form a baseline of information used to create policies, guidelines, and projects and make decisions to promote more diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
Home Credit Philippines’ top management and leaders will also attend a high-level executive course about sexual orientation, gender identity, and expression (SOGIE). This training will show the leaders how they play a vital role in championing equality within the company and inculcate gender awareness and sensitivity from top to bottom of the organization.
