Real estate platform Lamudi Philippines is officially certified as a Great Place to Work®. The recognition was based on a survey that evaluated employees’ perceptions of the office culture. A total of 150 workers participated in the poll, and 85 percent reported that Lamudi is a great place to work in.
The corporate culture of Lamudi is deemed excellent in the area of Justice, garnering a top score of 92 percent. Most employees believe that people in Lamudi are treated fairly regardless of gender, among other factors evaluated.
The Great Place to Work® certification follows a rigorous process, primarily involving a research-backed employee survey called the Trust Index.
A Diverse, Inclusive Lamudian Workplace
According to Ashima Lamba, HR Director at Lamudi, the company’s Great Place to Work® certification is a testament to the high level of trust and overall happiness employees experience within the firm.
“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,” she said.
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 changed 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 comprises 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 to double its manpower in response to more property seekers turning online.
Impact of Lamudi Culture
The optimistic workplace culture within Lamudi extends to 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 donated to Habitat for Humanity.
In 2021, also celebrating 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.
