UnionBank PR | June 25, 2019

UnionBank was cited as Dream Company to Work For at this year’s Philippines Best Employer Brand Awards. At the same time, UnionBank was also the sole winner of the Award for Excellence in HR through Technology.


Organized by the Employer Branding Institute, World HRD Congress, and Stars of the Industry Group, the Philippines Best Employer Brand Awards recognizes top organizations in the country that have shown exemplary leadership in human resource management through innovation for employee development.



UnionBank — the only bank that was awarded in the Dream Companies to Work For category — was lauded for having become digital to the core without leaving any of its employees behind. The Bank, through its human resource department, successfully transformed into an agile organization that retrains its employees so they can seamlessly move from manual jobs that are disappearing into the many data science-centered jobs that are emerging.

In our digital journey, our promise to our employees is that no one gets left behind. It’s a scary undertaking, so we really focused to make sure that people join us in the journey.  Getting this Dream Company to Work For (award) is like overshooting the runway. It’s more than what we had expected.

– Edwin Bautista, UnionBank President and CEO

Meanwhile, UnionBank, through its One UnionBanker Hub (1UHub), was also awarded as the sole winner of the Award for Excellence in HR through Technology. 1UHub is the Bank’s centralized digital Human Resource Management platform – a solid proof of the Bank’s commitment towards employee experience and engagement.

Made for UnionBankers by UnionBankers, 1UHub seeks to provide a seamless employee lifestyle by crafting effortless interactions between the employees, the company, and the underlying technology that powers it across the entire employee life-cycle.
