#CulturePH - Mondelēz Philippines Is Made for Movement!

The epidemic has had a big impact on how we take care of our physical and emotional health. It can be challenging to balance job and personal obligations, and frequently, one's welfare takes a back seat. You can't pour from an empty cup, as the expression goes! One of the few issues that the food manufacturer Mondelez Philippines seeks to solve is the disconnect between workers' wellbeing and workplace efficiency.

The multinational corporation Mondelez International celebrates its annual Purpose Day on October 1st, beginning a month-long celebration centered on their deliberate commitment to enacting their shared Purpose: To Empower People to Snack Right. The Mondelez Made to Move virtual event is one of the projects the snack company has prepared for its employees and is focused on the pillars of growth, execution, culture, and sustainability.

"At Mondelēz, we want our employees to know that we respect their time and hard work,”
shares Aileen Aumentado, People Lead for Mondelēz Philippines. “We want to make our colleagues feel valued by guiding and reminding them of how important it is to care for their well-being, too,” she adds.

Coach PJ Lanot

The virtual event was held online via Zoom with mental well-being expert and host PJ Lanot and physical wellness expert Joseph Guevara of The Givars Effect. Micro-challenges were done throughout the event with the intention of mindful movement, including a virtual QR code hunt, trivia games, and low-impact exercises that support colleagues in their journey of caring for their well-being. PJ Lanot shared tips and advice to “hack” one’s happy hormones, like celebrating small wins, spending time in nature, and physical touch and affection, among others. “Wins don’t have to be big—they can be small but meaningful,” PJ shares. 

Coach Josh Guevara

On the other hand, fitness coach Joseph Guevara motivated audience members with mini-exercises they can do in between work breaks to support a healthy and active lifestyle. “Move at least 30 minutes a day, don’t deprive yourself of food, drink lots of water, consider taking nutritional supplements, and get at least eight hours of quality sleep every night,” coach Joseph ends. The winners and participants of the micro-challenges were given Mondelēz goodies as prizes.

The Purpose Day celebrations also include a well-being day where colleagues are free to take a day off work to unwind and relax. Additionally, the company provides three different programs that improve employee support: Meet-Less Fridays, Employee Assistance Program, and Sabbatical Leave, which are available all year round.

"Our Employee Assistance Program is available 24/7, even during holidays. It's free, and you can confide privately to mental healthcare professionals, powered by our provider Magellan Healthcare,” My Rewards Advisor for Mondelēz Cornelia dela Cruz shares. Mondelēz Philippines also partnered with Maxicare to cater to colleagues who need psychiatric consultation, where personal and teleconsultation and therapy are free for its employees and family dependents. “We believe that with the right body and mind, we can achieve our goals with the right purpose," de la Cruz concludes. This service is available for all Mondelēz employees in the Philippines.

Mondelēz Philippines
is committed to supporting their employees’ welfare. “We want to pride ourselves in building a winning growth culture, and that means supporting our colleagues’ physical and emotional well-being to help them achieve their full potential,” Aumentado ends. Mondelēz Philippines aims to continuously support its people’s journey to better physical, emotional, and mental health, by continuing to empower people as we celebrate the past and move towards the future of snacking.
