·4 min read

DOVER Business Services (DBS) is an independent transactional service provider in finance, information technology and human resources to Dover Corp., which is based in Illinois, USA.

DBS Cebu was founded in April 2017 and continues to be a leading shared services center that offers support in functions such as accounts payable, accounts receivable and general ledger. It has a staff of close to 300.

Keo Borja, one of its employees, gives a glimpse of what it’s like to work for the company.

“I have been with a few companies in the industry and none of them is quite like DBS Cebu. When I decided to join DBS, it was like finally completing a crossword puzzle, it’s like finding the one, everything just fits. And I’m not just talking about the company’s competitive compensation and benefits package or its reputation as one of the most credible and highly performing shared service centers in Cebu, but DBS just sets the bar high in almost everything.

The past two years have been really great for DBS as the company was awarded with Asia's Best Employer Brand Awards 2019 and 2020 given by the World HRD Congress held in Singapore and Mumbai, and it continues to be a leading employer in the region. The company’s career development plan for each employee aligns with its employees’ career goals and aspirations. DBS invests in its employees and makes sure that everyone is nurtured and guided with its continuous learning development programs. This reinforces that DBS is a place of opportunities. Also, the company gives opportunity to some of its employees for immersion, training and process transition to different DBS locations across the globe.

Another profound reason why I love being at DBS is simply because of the people. Its great culture, joyful vibe and very inclusive organization are uniquely DBS. They see to it that employees reach their full potential and at the same time, never compromise work-life balance. Just like what my workmates always tell me, at DBS they’ve found a family, they’ve found their home.

As per my colleague Drei who works as a senior accountant, he loves working at DBS because in DBS there is growth, there is progress. Drei says: ‘My voice is heard and my opinion matters in DBS. I feel psychologically safe and it is empowering to know that the work that we do, the achievements that we make, no matter how big or small, are duly recognized. I also like it that the company welcomes fresh ideas and always encourages us to further expand our career. With our growth mindset in DBS, we continually graduate from being to becoming.’

Likewise, for Van, a training specialist, he is delighted to be at DBS because it is an environment for learning and collaboration. ‘Employees never miss an opportunity to learn something new with regular company-sponsored webinars and certifications. Also, in the company we work toward a common goal. DBS fosters a collaborative environment and encourages employees to work together in driving successful and meaningful projects,’ Van says.

I know 2020 has been a very tough year for all of us, but we sure know it always gets better. Fortunately for us at DBS, the company has been by our side all throughout this pandemic and supported us right at the times when we need them most. From providing us with tools and equipment to effectively work remotely, to consciously implementing additional employee benefits package, DBS has been our true north amid the uncertainty. It is comforting for us that no matter how difficult this health crisis gets, DBS will see us through.

Of course, all these things we enjoyed at DBS would not be possible without its solid leadership team. Our leaders at DBS listen to their people and give value for the work that we do. Our leaders are the leaders we wish we had when we started our career. Though, nothing is perfect, there is still work to be done, we are confident our leadership team can handle any adversity ahead.

DBS has made a significant mark in the shared service industry considering it’s only been three years since it was formed. Within those years, DBS has successfully paved the way in empowering, engaging and elevating workforce through its world-class employee experience–evident in the accolades the company has received.

These are just some of the many reasons we do what we do and why we love being at DBS. There is so much more about this company than meets the eye and truly, DBS is the best place to be. I can tell you it’s a great joy working here and we are definitely excited for what’s ahead for DBS.’ SPONSORED CONTENT
