We know the drill! There’s always a tendency for one to go for a job that pays for the bills than look for that ever-elusive dream career that sustains and fulfills. And why not? We now live in a society that highlights the reality that nothing is ideal? Jaded? Not really. Realistic? Probably.
When it comes to one’s career, purpose and growth might seem like mere buzzwords, but such is the business of Workbank, a talent solutions platform that matches job hunters with companies.
Workbank gears up to be a game-changer in the familiar, already-tedious job-hunting process of a candidate by putting people first. The platform ensures that applicants are ready and suited for their ideal job, which is what recruiters ultimately look for in candidates.
Taking that extra leap to encourage self-improvement and preparedness, Workbank partnered with companies like Grab and Zalora to provide discounts to job hunters who want to better present themselves. Free training programs are also readily available to candidates to scale up a job hunter’s chances at getting employed–all of which is anchored on the virtue that is uniquely Filipino: malasakit.
In the recent press launch of Workbank Country Head Reggie Fernandes said, “As a very young institution, we have a lot ahead to position ourselves differently. We are dynamic, we are agile, we have strong technology backing and we have investors overseas that have put a lot behind what they believe is the story of malasakit. This is very important for us because we know how hardworking and talented Filipinos are.”
Their job-seeking development strategy comes with an E-Card that showcases exclusive perks to Workbank users. The E-Card can be used for discounts at partner merchants such as ClassPass, Electric Studio, Urban Ashram and Wendy’s. Anyone who registers on the page and reaches a 70 percent profile progress can avail this E-Card in just a few clicks.
Workbank will continue to strengthen their job hunters’ skill set and credibility with the right partnerships and smart-match technology. This ensures that candidates are always provided opportunities for growth, not just through trainings but also through jobs that meet their skill and experience.
Fernandes also added that Workbank will not just be a portal but will have a unique roadmap for job hunters in search of a purpose-driven career. “Our philosophy is investing in people, so we operate in the principle of ‘Invest in good people and you get back in multiple fold for all the companies in our platform.’”
