The leading mobile wallet in the Philippines, GCash, partnered with the country’s largest private employer, Concentrix, to provide digital rewards to the BPO company’s employees. This is in line with Concentrix’s drive to digitize aspects of employee rewards and recognition, thus providing greater value, flexibility, and convenience for any of its 80,000 staff nationwide.
“Our employee incentive programs take many forms, but a digital solution like GCash is great because it enables us to quickly and easily provide rewards to our team. Moreover, the perceived value of the reward is much higher because they are free to choose how they want to use it so that it stays relevant to their individual needs,” said Rain Tan, Head of People Solutions in Concentrix Philippines.
GCash is a mobile app which transforms your phone into a digital wallet, allowing users to do discounted prepaid load top-ups, bills payment, QR payments, bank and money transfers, online shopping, and others.
On a corporate level, GCash also offers payroll and disbursement solutions for small to large entities, allowing business owners or HR to disburse salaries and other monetary items to their employees within seconds.
“The wide array of services found within the GCash App truly empowers our Concentrix staff with the freedom of choice and time – without worrying about being late on their bills, or with money remittance centers closing before they can go, just to cite a few benefits,” said Amit Jagga, Head of Shared Services for Concentrix Philippines.
Aside from Digital Rewards, Concentrix employees also use the GCash App to purchase prepaid load and send money to their families and relatives outside of metro regions. They also get to enjoy perks, discounts, and promos, from GCash and GCash Partner Merchants.
Concentrix also adopted GCash QR payments in cafeterias in 4 of its sites around the nation, and in merchants surrounding its offices, where thousands of employees transact on a day-to-day basis.
In a statement, Elek Toth, VP and Country Leader for Concentrix Philippines, said, “We are fanatical about our staff, and want all elements of employee engagement to be positive, efficient and meaningful. Concentrix believes in driving performance and rewards through a variety of mechanisms, so teaming up with an awesome partner like GCash is a multi-level “win”: our internal processes are streamlined and easily auditable, and our staff has greater flexibility in using their additional compensation. Even though we’ve just recently adopted this solution, we already have 20,000 team members on the GCash platform, and expect to significantly grow that number in the future. We’re proud to have partnered with GCash to digitize employee rewards, and we’re looking forward to exploring even more opportunities with them.”
“One of the challenges employers have is distribution of money across the organization – if it reaches someone correctly and on time – it’s a challenge GCash is helping them address. With our robust time and employee management system, plus the technology behind the GCash App, partners can be rest assured that these situations are handled efficiently,” said Anthony Thomas, President and CEO of Mynt. “GCash is proud to partner with the nation’s top BPO,” he added.
