A key difference between Philippines Best Workplaces™ and the Rest is a For All™ culture where employees, regardless of their demographic profile, experience a high-trust and high-performance workplace culture. This becomes evident when we analyze the Trust Index™ survey results by managerial level demographic group. In the GPTW statement scores, employees across all managerial levels amongst Philippines Best Workplaces™ report similar experiences across the board, with a maximum disparity in scores of just 5%.
Conversely, when looking at the GPTW statement scores among the Rest, it becomes apparent that there is a much wider disparity between the workplace experience of executives and corporate leaders compared to employees and individual contributors. Their GPTW statement scores of 98% compared to 83% is a clear indication of an inconsistent employee experience within these organizations.
The value of a For All™ culture is further demonstrated when average results across all five fundamental dimensions are compared across employee categories. Workforces at Philippines Best Workplaces™ have a more uniform experience regardless of their job classification while amongst the Rest, the observed gap continues to be more pronounced.
The biggest inconsistency amongst Philippines Best Workplaces™ was seen in the dimension of ‘Fairness’ with a discrepancy of 6% between general employees and leaders, while amongst the Rest, a disparity of 17% in the dimension of ‘Credibility’ and 16% in ‘Fairness’ was seen between frontline managers and corporate leaders.
To address these underlying issues for the future, workplaces across the Philippines should promote a greater application of For All™ leadership principles, as outlined by Great Place to Work® CEO Michael Bush in his book ‘A Great Place to Work For All’. The benefits they stand to gain are varied and numerous.
A ‘For All‘ Leader is someone who looks to employees across the company for the next great idea; who leads with values first, especially in the face of adversity.
One who builds connectivity within and across teams; who can help inspire a sense of purpose and pride in employees; who elevates employees to achieve all they ever thought they were capable of, and then some.
Employees led by For All™ leaders demonstrate higher levels of productivity, innovation and agility, while showing greater loyalty and a desire to progress their career within the organization. Importantly, For All™ leaders are better able to increase employee perceptions about fairness and impartiality through their open and involving management approach, while enhancing teamwork, collaboration, and harmony throughout the organization.1
