Home Credit Philippines renews this commitment to support the LGBTQ+ community with the establishment of Pride Club, an employee resource group that will lead and champion diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) at the workplace .

“At Home Credit Philippines, DEI and workplace inclusion is important for us. We have always championed these causes as integral for how we take care of our people and build safe spaces where our employees can be themselves and thrive,” said Home Credit Philippines chief people officer Alpha Omega Aquino.

Many companies in the Philippines have adopted DEI as a key tool to harmonize the workplace creating a culture of respect and appreciation amongst the workforce. In this Pride Month of June, Home Credit celebrates employees of diverse genders.

Home Credit Philippines has earned recognitions such as the Asia CEO Awards- Circle of Excellence Diversity Company of the Year, United Nations Women Empowerment Principles (UN WEPs) Awards 2022 for Transparency and Reporting, and 2023 Gold Stevie for Diversity and Inclusion.

DEI is also a focus of the company’s environmental, social, and governance (ESG) programs, where in a workforce of 14,000 employees, 52 percent are female and 5 women executive are also sitting as company board members.

Home Credit has been proactively collaborating with advocacy partners to strengthen its DEI policies and programs. In 2022, the company joined the Philippine Coalition for Women Empowerment (PBCWE) and the Philippine LGBT Chamber of Commerce (PLCC) to further cement its commitment to workplace inclusion.

“The establishment of our Home Credit Pride team signals a more collaborative approach in creating equitable and inclusive policies and practices for our organization. This also allows our employees to be more empowered in advocating for causes that matter to them,” Aquino said.
