The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) celebrated its continued success in establishing a positive and thriving work environment for its employees, as Secretary Pascual announced on April 29 that the DTI has once again been certified as a Great Place To Work®, valid from April 2024 to April 2025.

This distinction makes DTI the Philippines' sole government agency to receive such recognition. Also, the Department’s focus on employee well-being directly translates into a more empowered and effective workforce, ultimately contributing to a stronger Philippine trade and industry sector.

“Today, with our collective dedication, we celebrate the recognition of the DTI as a Great Place to Work, from April 2024 to April 2025. I take pride in saying that we are the only government agency with this distinction,” said Secretary Pascual.


The announcement highlighted the overwhelming response to the 2023 Employee Experience Survey (EES), with a 99.8% participation rate.

This signifies the DTI workforce's commitment to open communication and continuous improvement, which reflects a culture that prioritizes transparency and accountability, essential values for effective trade regulation and business development.

“This prestigious certification not only aligns the DTI with thousands of other certified companies worldwide but also affirms the DTI’s purpose-driven and people-first organization. Unsurprisingly, a staggering 91% of the DTI employees take immense pride in their work and their contributions to their community,” said Great Place to Work Philippines Managing Partner Antoniette Talosig as she recognized the certification as a testament to the Department’s thriving and positive workplace culture.

The DTI employees take pride in delivering exceptional service with integrity, living by the Department's mantra: "Serbisyong Higit pa sa Inaasahan."

These values directly translate to a more efficient and trustworthy business environment, fostering a climate that attracts domestic and foreign investments and promotes fair trade practices.

In 2023, the DTI’s engagement score increased from 80% to 81%, higher than the previous year. Notably, 84% of respondents asserted that DTI is a Great Place To Work®.

“Once again, thank you for your commitment to our shared goals. With your participation, let us work together to maintain and further strengthen a positive and productive workplace environment at the DTI,” said the trade chief.
