Mondelez Philippines Inc. has been providing consumers with delicious snack products for the past 58 years - since 1963. We provide enriching careers working with well-loved brands like Tang powdered beverages, Eden cheese, mayonnaise and sandwich spread, Cheez Whiz spread, Oreo cookies, Tiger energy biscuits, belVita breakfast biscuits, as well as Toblerone and Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolates. We provide a great place to work for our 450 people in the Philippines. Our head office and manufacturing facility are located in Parañaque City, where we have been a responsible corporate citizen these many years.

 

We are Purpose-led, consumer-focused, Values-enabled, and locally empowered. For 58 years, our proud makers and bakers have “wowed” consumers with amazing brands and enviable snacking know-how. We are master chocolatiers. Cheese makers. Confectioners. Pastry chefs! We’re proud of our past, but more excited about our future -- one that’s focused on growth. Our roots and our progress give us a strong foundation to evolve into the winning growth culture we all want to become.
We’re a highly engaged team who love our brands and innovate boldly to offer consumers the right snack, for the right moment, made the right way. Our three values –Love Our Consumers & Brands, Grow Every Day and Do What’s Right – shape our culture, guide our actions, and reflect what we believe in and how we desire to lead, every day. We’re building a consumer-centric and diverse winning growth culture that empowers local teams to lead with a growth mindset and agility over perfection through our local-first (but not local only) model that empowers our BUs to make decisions with our local consumers in mind. We’re embracing inclusion to reflect the diversity of our consumers and maximizing the power and potential of our passionate makers & bakers around the world as a competitive advantage to deliver stronger business performance.
We are shifting the mindsets and behaviours on how we lead Growth Mindset and Agility over Perfection and investing in skills in critical growth areas like e-Commerce and Marketing. We provide a fast-tracked learning development program for people starting their careers through the Leading EDGE Business Challenge (competition for college students), EDGE Sparks (internship), and EDGE Stars (graduate trainee) programs. These opportunities are not your run-of-the-mill starting careers. These are roles designed to shape the future leaders of the organization. We also have an online university where you can choose learning topics to help you develop. If face-to-face is your thing, a coaching and mentorship program can also provide you time with a leader to ask questions and guide you through your career. Each person also drives their own career. We follow the 70-20-10 framework where 70% is focused on learning on-the-job, 20% for learning from others through coaching and feedback, and 10% for learning programs and studies for development.
  • To aid colleagues in their journey to better physical, emotional, and mental health, Mondelez Philippines provides three different programs to improve employee support during the pandemic: Meet-Less Fridays, Employee Assistance Program (EAP), and the Sabbatical Leave.
  • Starting this 2021, the Meet-less Fridays program allows employees to have meeting-less time every Friday afternoon to focus on their individual projects or tasks. It’s the latest initiative by the company in support of its Flexible Working policy. No meetings mean employees can complete other deliverables, gather as a team to celebrate small and big wins, recharge for the next week, or attend other activities initiated by the company that promotes well-being. “At Mondelez Philippines, we want our employees to know that we respect their time and their hard work throughout the week, and we want to give back time each week for them to use for themselves,” shares Aileen Aumentado, Mondelez Philippines People Lead.
  • The support for this program has been great, with colleague Donna Maligalig sharing, “Our Meet-less Fridays drive has allowed our employees to get a "breather" from a full week of virtual meetings and let them focus on their weekly targets, just in time before their much-awaited weekend with their families. This drive has developed win-win business and people solutions while balancing business and people needs.”
  • The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) aims to support employees by providing online counselling for various mental health topics. It aims to ensure employees never feel alone or lack support. From time to time, everyone experiences situations that affect their general well-being. Employees can reach out to this EAP service for practical information, including physical, financial, legal, and family care resources. This can be done through counselling over the phone, online, or in person. All counselling sessions are confidential between the employee and the counsellor. Mondelez Philippines wants each employee to know that they are never alone in whatever challenge they may face.
  • Lastly, the Sabbatical Leave program allows employees to take a prolonged leave from work to recharge and reenergize their mental well-being or prioritize other needs such as caregiving responsibilities, self-development, and community work.
