CHICAGO, IL – October 30 2017 -- AffinityX the leading provider of white-label creative and marketing services for companies that serve small and medium businesses (SMBs) and other local marketers, is pleased to announce that its parent company, Ayala, has been named to Forbes magazine’s first-ever Global 2000 list of the World’s Best Employers.
Ayala is ranked as the 18th best employer among all public companies in the world. Other organizations making the list include Alphabet (Google’s parent company), Microsoft, Apple and IBM.
More than 360,000 global companies were considered and analyzed by business intelligence portal Statista to determine the Forbes final list. Employees were asked to rate their own employer and the likelihood they would recommend the company to a friend or family member. They were also asked to recommend other employers they admired. Companies were evaluated based on internal and public perceptions of employees. The 500 companies receiving the highest total scores were named the world’s best employers.
This list is based on Forbes 2017 Global 2000 rankings, which features public companies from 58 countries. The annual ranking is based on a mix of four metrics: sales, profit, assets and market value. Ayala was ranked 1,176 on the 2017 list.
This distinction follows a year of recognition and honors for Ayala and AffinityX. In March, AffinityX was inducted into the International ICT Awards Philippines Hall of Fame in recognition of its excellence and outstanding achievement as a creative company in the information technology and business process management (IT-BPM) industry in the Philippines, where Ayala is headquartered. The company also received the ISO certificates of 9001:2015 and 27001:2013 for its facilities in Pune, India and Manila, Philippines earlier this year.
