In line with its mission to create an inclusive workplace, GCash, the top fintech company in the Philippines, has expanded its comprehensive benefits program for its employees with LGBTQIA+ partners and domestic partners. This initiative is in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) No. 5 which promotes gender equality.
Under the e-wallet’s new Life Partner Benefits Program, GCash employees can now enjoy benefits for their significant others., regardless of gender and marital status. Employees only need to submit a few documents to be able to declare their partners as their dependents.
“At GCash, we understand that our employees have different needs, including the desire to take care of their loved ones. Our Life Partner Benefits Program will provide employees’ partners with health insurance, Disability and Accident Insurance, and allow them to be their beneficiaries for life, among others,” said Robert Gonzales, Chief People Officer of GCash.
These benefits also cover bereavement needs and health allowances. Access to tech apps like KonsultaMD and Mind You is also provided.
“We have made sure that our application process for this program is easy and simple. We want all our GCash Kabarkadas to have access to the benefits of the company that will help to increase their quality of life, without any bias or discrimination,” added Gonzales.
Josh de Leon, who identifies as gay, shared his happiness that finally, the benefits can be easily extended to his partner. “GCash understands my needs as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, and I am proud to be part of a company that prioritizes inclusivity and equity.”
Dee Tseng, who identifies as a homosexual, shared that she has not felt any discrimination at GCash when it comes to her gender. “The company is not biased against the community – in fact, it encourages and empowers us to embrace our true selves.”
