Most, if not all, of surveys on employee engagement and job satisfaction reveal that
compensation is the priority of employees and the major factor influencing job satisfaction.

UBP declares that it offers above-average compensation and benefits to enrich its employees'
professional life. But, how can one be the best employer in the Asian region when it only
gives its workforce average to above-average salaries as compared to other Asian countries
such as Japan, Hongkong, Singapore, Taiwan, and Malaysia with salary rates ranging from
$16,000 to $180,000 or P800,000 to P9 million? With these facts at hand, do you believe that
UBP is the Best Company to Work for in Asia?
