Fintech firm PayMaya bags award for digital platform

FINANCIAL technology (fintech) firm PayMaya Philippines Inc. announced it was recently cited at the awards given by LinkedIn Corp., whose product Paymaya uses.

In a statement, PayMaya bagged the “’10X talent’ Strategy” award. The award is a nod to the term in a book titled “Gamechangers” and which refers to “highly-skilled, transformative and agile talents that companies need to achieve massive growth.”

According to Chief People Officer Carla G. Lanza, PayMaya has employed a “10X talent” strategy that combines data-driven global recruitment via the talent solutions product of the award-giver, LinkedIn. Lanza said the latter is combined with the electronic money-issuer’s “high engagement employee referral platform.” Called “people connect,” she explained the program complements another program that PayMaya designed for “top technology and business graduates.”

“Our biggest asset is our multicultural set of people. We are honored and humbled to be recognized by LinkedIn as the leader in our talent recruitment and engagement efforts,” Lanza was quoted in a statement as saying. “This recognition, especially during a time where the majority of our team is working remotely, is a testament to PayMaya’s spirit of innovation.”

The LinkedIn “talent awards” program is “an annual global event that recognizes companies adopting, innovating and moving the talent community forward into the new world of work.” The awards body recognizes successful organizations that have made a significant impact using the firm’s “talent solutions” products, according to LinkedIn.

With the use of a data-driven approach and combining it with a “highly engaging program,” Lanza said the company’s initiatives “have been instrumental in its high-growth phase as it accelerates digital payments adoption and financial inclusion in the Philippines.”

Lanza said PayMaya “continues to attract global talents, including high performers in fields such as engineering, science, marketing, finance and information security.” She added that PayMaya is one of the companies in the Philippines with the highest concentrations of professionals with degrees in engineering and sciences. The company has also fostered innovation with its highly diverse and multicultural team.

Lanza said PayMaya’s workforce is “very active” through its employee-referral program contributing to more than a third of its hires for 2021. Its “tech cadetship” and “entrepreneur-in-residence” programs attract top graduates with a holistic experience to create next-generation leaders, innovators and business experts in the digital and fintech space.
