BBM VLOG #121: Work From Home | Bongbong Marcos
Flexitime plus Other Advantages
Remote work is already common in the US. In fact, they outsource online workers from the Philippines. Various jobs are available in writing, administration, plus information technology, and technical skills. Filipinos prove to be efficient as Virtual Assistants. Then, other countries follow suit like Japan, China, and Korea for English teaching. These work from home jobs pave the way for parents and the disabled. They can be productive by giving their services at the comfort of their own home. On top of that, ample savings and convenience are inevitable for not commuting anymore, said BBM.
Self-Discipline is Crucial
The work from home scenarios might be ideal during the pandemic. However, self-discipline is a must, according to Bongbong Marcos. There are no restrictions on the time and arrangement of work. Therefore, the workplace must be conducive professionally. One must do the duties with a goal in mind. Temptations to stray from the tasks are massive. Destructions are also rampant. A productive schedule can help to get the most out of working from home. Not to mention having a healthy diet and exercise.
The New Work Life
Majority of the Filipinos forcibly got the taste of working from home. It can happen that many of them would prefer to remain that way even after the crisis. This is actually helpful in congesting the busy streets of the big cities. This sector is definitely showing potential for the country’s economy.
