Real estate platform Lamudi Philippines is a great place to work in- not only by word of mouth- but it’s also officially certified.
The recognition was based on a survey that evaluated employees’ perceptions of the office culture, resulting in 85% of 150 workers saying that Lamudi has a great workplace setting. It also garnered a top score of 92%, deemed excellent in terms of its corporate culture. Most employees stated that they are treated fairly regardless of gender, among other factors evaluated.
The Great Place to Work® certification follows a rigorous process, which primarily involves a research-backed employee survey called the Trust Index.
“We always strive to create a positive environment for Lamudians, where they feel respected, heard, seen, and celebrated. Everyone is important in the team, and we truly live our core values, especially, we go far, together,” said Ashima Lamba, HR Director at Lamudi.
Lamudi is also a company of inclusivity, both in the workplace and in practice. The past celebrations of Pride Month at Lamudi were festivities of self-expression, from lip-syncing battles to catwalk and makeover challenges to colorful social media posts.
Amid the changes brought by the pandemic, Justine Rose Justo, HR Business Partner at Lamudi, said that the Lamudian workplace underwent a change as well. Homes became offices, and gatherings took place virtually.
“Such changes came with challenges, especially for us at the human resources department. But I can proudly say that our team stepped up and became more determined to engage employees and give them the support they need,” Justo said.
In January 2021, Lamudi formed its own Employee Engagement Committee. The group consists of representatives from across departments and levels leading initiatives within their team and actively supporting company-wide activities.
Even at the height of the pandemic last year, Lamudi exerted aggressive efforts in doubling its manpower in response to more property seekers turning online.
Its positive workplace in the company also positively affected its external stakeholders. In May 2020, a few months after the first lockdown was implemented in the country, Lamudi Philippines joined Indonesia, Mexico, and Lamudi Global in an international plank relay challenge called Planking Beyond Borders for COVID-19.
While promoting a healthy lifestyle amid the pandemic, the virtual event allowed Lamudi to give to a charity. The Philippines won, bringing home $5,000, which was donated to Habitat for Humanity.
In 2021, also in celebration of the yuletide season, Lamudi presented the opportunity for partners to donate to Typhoon Odette victims. The donations were coursed through the Philippine Red Cross and Caritas Manila. Typhoon victims within the company were also given aid.
