Homegrown Filipino restaurant Jollibee Foods Corporation (JFC) has won the Gallup Exceptional Workplace Awards, the first for a Philippine company.
The Jollibee Group was among the 38 organizations from around the world recognized with the Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award (GEWA), “whose cultures drive high engagement among its employees.”
Gallup cited its winners as they “put people at the heart of their business strategy, focusing on people’s strengths and coaching talents to reach their full potential, unleashing human motivation, creativity, and innovation as a result.”
“This award is Gallup’s highest honor, presented only to organizations that meet rigorous standards of excellence. As an award winner, you rank among the most elite organizations around the globe,” said Gallup in its letter to the Jollibee Group.
JFC was also cited in this year’s Forbes’ List of the World’s Best Employers.
Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to survey 160,000 employees from 58 countries who were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family. They were also asked to rate their satisfaction with their employers’ Covid-19 responses and score their employers on image, economic footprint, talent development, gender equality, and social responsibility.
“We are honored to receive these global awards that reflect the kind of organization and strong culture of Jollibee Foods Corporation. We take pride in having professionals in our teams who are not only excellent in what they do, but also live the values that make the Jollibee Group what it is today,” said Jollibee Group President and CEO Ernesto Tanmantiong. “We know that a company is only as strong as the quality of its people, and it is our people who incessantly inspire us to be better.”
“To all our teams across the world, thank you for your commitment and trust in the Jollibee Group. We will continue to uphold the culture and values that have made us who we are and develop programs that will continuously uplift our teams,” Tanmantiong added.
In previous years, the Jollibee Group has also received global citations—named as Philippines’ most admired company by the Asian Wall Street Journal for ten years and honored as one of ‘Asia’s Fab 50 Companies’ by Forbes Asia Magazine.
Jollibee Group is one of the fastest-growing Asian restaurant companies in the world with 16 brands including Jollibee, Chowking, Mang Inasal, Greenwich, Red Ribbon, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Smashburger and has a joint venture with the Tim Ho Wan Group to open Michelin-starred Tim Ho Wan restaurants in Mainland China.
