In the world we live in today, many are trapped in the thought that opportunities are limited and only a few are privilege to earn and be productive, so people start to lose hope and wait and be thankful for whatever comes their way. The Philippines government-mandated, most companies to stop operations if working from home cannot be arranged. Most of us blame the national government for not providing enough opportunities to survive during this worldwide crisis, not thinking that they can only do so much for everyone. Our family and ourselves are our sole responsibility, not theirs.
Industries nowadays offer work-from-home setup though not all, with companies, aim to secure their employee’s health and safety while they help grow the business and protect their assets. Some of us might be stereotyping that working from home has tons of benefits yet considered as easy-peasy. During the transition from the office work routine to work from home, I am sure we all have different questions that we are keen on.
What do we know about working from home? Isn’t it boring since I am alone? When and how do we start? Is focusing not an issue? How do we collaborate and communicate with our colleagues if we need to work on a project? How can we stay productive in the course of working from home?
