PayMaya has won the Best Talent Acquisition Team Award at the recently concluded LinkedIn Talent Awards Philippines. The annual awards event recognizes companies and organizations that have successfully made a significant impact using LinkedIn Talent Solutions.
The company bagged the prestigious awards due to its “10X talent” strategy, a term used by best-selling authors Michael Solomon and Rishon Blumberg in their book “Gamechangers” and refers to highly-skilled, transformative, and agile talents that companies need to achieve massive growth.
“Our biggest asset is our multi-cultural set of people. We are honored and humbled to be recognized by LinkedIn as the leader in our talent recruitment and engagement efforts. This recognition, especially during a time where the majority of our team is working remotely, is a testament to PayMaya’s spirit of innovation,” said Carla Lanza, PayMaya’s Chief People Officer.
PayMaya’s 10X talent strategy combines data-driven global recruitment via LinkedIn Talent Solutions and a high engagement employee referral platform called People Connect. PayMaya also utilizes a next-generation Tech Cadetship and Entrepreneurship-in-Residence program for top technology and business graduates.
The company has been able to attract global talents, including those in fields such as engineering, science, marketing, finance, and information security. PayMaya is touted as one of the companies in the Philippines with the highest concentration of professionals with degrees in engineering and sciences.
PayMaya was also cited by LinkedIn as a success story for utilizing several digital tools and programs to promote employee engagement, accelerate business growth, promote continuous learning, and recruit top talent, amidst the challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
