Research group Aon Hewitt cites employee engagement as key driver for HCPH

Home Credit, a Prague-based company that offers in-store financing of gadgets, appliances and other goods, has been recognized by Aon Hewitt, the global talent, retirement and health solutions business of Aon plc (NYSE: AON), as a 2016 Aon Best Employer in the Philippines and in the Asia-Pacific region.

The Aon Best Employers program measures and recognizes employer excellence worldwide, comparing organizations to identify those that strive to create a competitive advantage through their people and become employers of choice. Under the program, Home Credit Philippines (HCPH) was assessed on several measures, including employee engagement, leadership index, performance culture index, and employer brand index. HCPH scored high marks across all categories based on employee surveys, along with other Home Credit offices throughout APAC. “When we did our rebrand earlier this year, we said that we are transitioning from a product-focused company into a people-focused company. And by people, we don’t just mean our customers; just as important, we put even greater focus on our own people, underscoring the important role that employee engagement plays in achieving our goals,” remarked Annica Witschard, CEO of HCPH.

“This award illustrates Home Credit’s strong commitment to growing together with its workforce, and we are thankful to Aon for this recognition,” she added. “The Aon Best Employers program recognizes the outstanding achievements of organizations that demonstrate excellence in the workplace and consistently deliver strong, sustainable business results,” said Neil Crawford, partner, the Aon Best Employers Program leader, Aon Hewitt. “These exceptional organizations stand above the rest because they empower results through high employee engagement, a compelling employer brand, effective leadership and a high performance culture. We congratulate Home Credit Philippines on being recognized with this distinct honor.”

Bacolod City of Smiles


Visayas expansion continues as Home Credit launches in Bacolod

With Home Credit recently launching its brand-new “smiley” logo, it only seems fitting that the company should launch in a place known for its smiles.

That’s exactly what it did, as Home Credit recently began its operations in Bacolod, famously known as the City of Smiles. Although operations have just begun, Home Credit now offers affordable loans in 30 partner stores in the Negros Occidental capital, including SM Bacolod. So far, more than 30 local employees have been hired, providing big smiles along with top-notch customer service.

According to Home Credit’s Head of Roll-Out Andrea Halkova, both the number of partner stores and hired employees will certainly rise in the coming months.

“With our new branding, along with Bacolod’s, it’s just a perfect match,” remarked Home Credit Head of Sales Adam Bernasek. “Our goal is to help Filipinos to avail their dream gadgets enjoy their lives today, and we are excited to do that for our customers in Bacolod.”

“And from a strategic standpoint, our expansion here is crucial, given that Bacolod is one of the most populated and most progressive cities in the whole region,” he added.

Home Credit’s launch in Bacolod is the latest in the company’s fast and strong expansion in the Visayan region, after successful launches in cities such as Cebu and Iloilo.

Aside from the affordable monthly payments, Home Credit’s customers in Bacolod have even more reasons to smile, as they can also enjoy a host of “safe lending” features that Home Credit offers for all its loan products, such as the option to avail of insurance along with the loan; a 15 day “cooling-off” period that allows customers to pay back the full loan at no added cost within this time period; and a loan “safety guarantee” that promises full transparency on loan products with no hidden charges.
