PASAY, Philippines, Nov. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire=KYODO JBN/ --


SM Investments Corporation has been recognized among Forbes' sixth annual

World's Best Employers in partnership with market research company Statista

published in October.


Forbes and Statista selected the World's Best Employers 2022 based on

independent surveys of roughly 150,000 employees in more than 55 countries

around the world. Participants were asked to rate employers according to

various topics such as image, trust, gender equality, corporate social

responsibility, culture, and benefits.


"We thank Forbes for this citation. This reflects our commitment to make SM the

best work place for our dedicated and hard-working people. We also give

recognition to our employees in helping us achieve our mission and vision and

sharing the strong values that make us SM," said SM President and Chief

Executive Officer Frederic DyBuncio.


To make sure that SM employees and their families were safe during the

pandemic, SM embarked on a full vaccination campaign, while monitoring for

surges of new variants and acting swiftly to provide flexible work arrangements

for its teams. SM kept its workplaces safe with continued testing, regular

disinfection and following strict health protocols.


SM works hard at being an equal opportunity provider with 63% of women in its

workforce and 58% in senior leadership roles. It also maintains a mix of people

from diverse backgrounds, generations and skillsets to mirror the diverse

customers and communities it serves.


The company recently appointed Elizabeth Anne "Lizanne" C. Uychaco as its first

Group Diversity Officer. As Group Diversity Officer, Ms. Uychaco will work with

different companies across the SM Group in advancing gender equality and

championing inclusion.


The top ten companies on Forbes World's Best Employers list were occupied by

major tech giants, including South Korea's Samsung and American multinational

tech firms Microsoft and IBM.
