Manila, Philippines — Eastern Communications proudly announces its 2024 Great Place To Work® Certification™, a prestigious accolade based on employee feedback. An impressive 92% of Eastern's employees affirmed that they feel welcomed upon joining the company.

Eastern Communications celebrates its most loyal employees through the “Araw ng Parangal” longevity awards, honoring those who have dedicated their service from five to over thirty years.

"Great Place To Work Certification™ is a highly coveted achievement that requires consistent and intentional dedication to the overall employee experience," says Sarah Lewis-Kulin, the Vice President of Global Recognition at Great Place To Work. She emphasizes that Certification is the sole official recognition earned by the real-time feedback of employees regarding their company culture. “By successfully earning this recognition, it is evident that Eastern Communications stands out as one of the top companies to work for, providing a great workplace environment for its employees."

"At Eastern, we make sure we build a transformational community, one that cultivates our employees’ growth while celebrating each employee's unique talents and skills. Our culture thrives on the strong connections between our team members, and earning the Great Place To Work Certification™ affirms all our combined efforts. This recognition belongs to our incredible Ka-Eastern family—whose dedication, passion, and relentless hard work truly make us a great place to work," said AC Cometa, Eastern Communications’ Human Resources Head.
