MANILA, Philippines — Metropolitan Bank & Trust Co. (Metrobank), the country’s second largest private universal bank, is this year’s best bank for job seekers aiming to enter the banking and finance industry, according to LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network on the internet.

The bank secured the fourth spot among all Philippine employers in LinkedIn’s recently released 2022 Top Companies List for the Philippines which ranked 15 local companies. It also bested all other domestic banks as the best banking employer in the country.

LinkedIn said these companies offer stability amid a constantly changing work environment and they not only attract employees, but strive to retain them.

The past two years have been tough for companies, especially in terms of human resource operations. The pandemic has compelled employers to drastically overhaul their systems and procedures, as well as initiate measures to maintain staff productivity and morale.

Against this backdrop, Metrobank made it a priority to ensure that its over 14,000-strong employees are being cared for and equipped with tools to help in their productivity.

“During the pandemic, Metrobank developed employee wellness programs, from work-from-home policies to employee training. The company offers programs to support its employees’ emotional and mental well-being,” said LinkedIn.

LinkedIn’s ranking is based on seven pillars: the ability to advance, skills growth, company stability, external opportunity, company affinity, gender diversity, and a wider scope in educational background. It also included key trends from the top companies such as the provision of flexible work setup, upskilling opportunities, provision of services that address mental health, and work force equality.

“Metrobankers strongly exemplified the bank’s promise of putting our clients in good hands during the lockdowns. They went the extra mile to deliver and provide our customers’ needs. In the same way, Metrobank puts tremendous importance on the welfare of its employees. That is why during the pandemic, we anticipated their needs to keep them motivated and healthy, both physically and mentally,” Metrobank HR head Gerboy Ortega said.
