Leading snack food manufacturer Republic Biscuit Corporation (Rebisco) has partnered with STORM Technologies to provide an innovative benefits solution for its employees.

The partnership enables employees from Rebisco’s sites in Novaliches, Caloocan and Pasig to convert their unused benefits into flex points through STORM’s platform. They can then use these points to purchase items of their choice in an exclusive online marketplace. Through this program, they can better maximize and enjoy their benefits–leading to increased engagement and satisfaction across the organization.

“At Rebisco, we value our people and consider them integral to the company’s success. More than offering them the right tools and opportunities to build their careers, we also like to ensure that the compensation and benefits package we offer them is not only competitive, but also
relevant and highly appreciated,” said Rebisco Corporate Resources Director Ma. Cristina L. Velasco.

With a multi-generational workforce –majority of which are technology-savvy and lifestyle-tuned
millennials, Rebisco saw the advantage of going beyond the traditional one-size-fits-all benefits package to one that is more flexible. The program will be more empowering for employees as they decide their benefits according to their needs and preferences, regardless of the life stage they are in.

“We have always been faced with the challenge of combining the ‘right mix’ between cash and non-cash benefits to keep our people happy and motivated. STORM Flex helps us find the ‘sweet spot’ since it can be customized down to an individual’s preferences with less administrative time and effort for us,” Velasco said.

“As an FMCG company, we in HR would like to demonstrate how we understand our people not only as employees but also as unique individuals who find joy in making their own choices. This strategy openly acknowledges the stiffening competition in attracting the right people and getting them successfully on board. We feel this is one way of keeping them engaged in our organization,” she adds. “In fact, it was our President, Mr. Jonathan Ng, who pushed us to pursue this further as one of the winning ideas during a major Ideation Session. Our mission now is to make this really work well for our people, and we look forward to STORM Technologies helping us make this happen.”

Rebisco has been a recognized pioneer in the Philippine snack food industry for over 50 years, and continues to be one of the dominant players through its extensive distribution network and innovative approach to market research, technology and product development.

“Just as we look forward to Rebisco’s expansion to new categories and territories, we equally value our people’s well-being as they grow with us. I also look forward to witnessing our HR team channel their energies from being transactional-focused –which Flex can do for us– to being more strategic and enabling partners of our internal customers. Thus, we see this program as a ‘win-win’ for our people and for Rebisco,” Velasco concluded.
