Telecommuting in PH: Work from Home
and Online Training Courses amid Covid

With the ongoing pandemic due to the coronavirus, businesses have considered work-from-home arrangements to minimize the chances of Covid-19 from spreading.

Even at the onset of 2019, the Philippines has a Telecommuting Law (RA.1116) that institutionalizes working remotely from home for employees.

This type of work setup lessens the chances of transmission and ensures public safety, according to the Department of Labor.

WFH: Telecommuting

Work from home and telecommuting are now indeed in the mainstream. Below are some helpful tips to ensure that working from home can also be productive and successful.

  1. Wake up early, preferably before the rest of the world (or at least the rest of the team). This will give you ample time to answer emails, as well as get your tasks on a row.
  2. Fix yourself up before work. It sets the tone and get you into the right frame of mind to work, and will most likely pull you into focus for the day ahead.
  3. Have a to-do list. It’s easy to lose track of tasks especially when you’re at a space that’s comfortable. Make sure to stick to your daily routine, but give yourself “brain breaks” in between. Having water and snacks near your work area also helps.

For those doing part-time jobs, you can take the time to meditate, try a new hobby, or venture on a different career path. This might seem impossible, as every one of us are advised to stay home, and most if not all establishments are closed.

Nevertheless, staying at home and social distancing are two options these days, to reduce contact and slow down the viral contagion.
