SM Assures Employee Compensation; Gives Financial Assistance for Guards and Janitors

With the unprecedented global health crisis, companies under SM today stand in solidarity with the nation and the citizenry in the battle against COVID-19.

SM today assured all of its employees their regular compensation as well as the extension of an Emergency Financial Assistance to its front liners, security guards and janitorial staff during the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) period from March 16 to April 14, 2020. The extent of this assistance includes the following:

All employees will receive their regularly scheduled salaries during the ECQ period without deductions made against their Vacation and Sick Leaves;

The company’s front liners, who comprise the skeletal workforce, will, in addition, be provided with premium pay;

All Security Guards and Janitorial staff will receive financial assistance of PHP5,000 for the period.

It is focused on helping these key resources so that they in turn can be of service to others.

On a daily basis since the ECQ, SM has also been undertaking measures to protect the safety and welfare of its front line personnel with protective gear, meals, and transportation whenever possible.

“In these trying times, we are in unchartered territories. Let’s be one with each other, united in the spirit of service. Let’s be mindful of our front liners and help with their need to be alert so they can continue to do their best in working for the safety and health of our communities,” said Hans T. Sy on behalf of the Sy family.

SM continues to assess the health crisis with vigilance; enjoining its employees and the public to follow guidelines and precautions to help combat the virus.

This financial assistance is another commitment to fighting the negative effects of COVID-19. Earlier, SM made separate announcements to waive tenant rentals nationwide as well as to support health workers as they actively fight the spread of COVID-19 with PHP100 million worth of protective equipment, testing kits and supplies.


  1. SM forever na ako ngayon!

  2. Companies like SM makes me a proud working Filipino. All the best to SM Management and Group!

    1. I am an SM employee and the good news was announced in our portal for employees.

      Despite DOLE’s Advisory and Department Order which allows employers to charge the unworked days from the employees’ leave credits, SM (the SY Family) decided that our leave credits are intact! ❤️

      We will also receive our full salaries (with regular deductions like government mandated contributions) for the March 25 and April 10 payroll.

      Thank you Lord! Thank you, SM and the SY Family!

  3. Pagtapus ng covid bili agad sa s.m

  4. Glad na kasama rin ang guards and janitors.šŸ‘

    1. Dapat naman talaga walang discrimination, dahil lahat sila nagpapawis sa pagtatrabaho.

    2. 2:09 actually, guards and janitors are not employees of SM but of their respective agencies. They are not SM employees. But SM is going further by giving them financial assistance.

  5. na miss ko na pumunta sa sm at manuod ng sine huhu, kudos sm

  6. Thank You Sy Family (SM)

  7. 2:09 Guards and janitors are actually not SM Employees. They are employed by the security agencies and janitorial agencies hired by SM to provide these services.

    The fact the SM chose to provide financial assistance to the guards and janitors show that SM and the SY family really care about the people around them.

    I am an employee of SM and I can confirm the generosity of the SM Group and the family that we are working for.

    It was already announced in the SM Portal, which employees can access, that our LEAVE CREDITS ARE INTACT and that we will receive our SALARIES IN FULL (with deductions on government mandated contributions and usual deductions) for the duration of the enhanced community quarantine.

    Thank you, Lord!

    Thank you, SM and the SY Family! Proud to work for you!

  8. Thanks SM managememt for supporting your employees..........
