Most Rewarding Part About Working From Home According to 50 Filipino Home-Based Professionals

Add caption

Almost everyone I know is looking for a long-term home-based job. Especially that there's no vaccine for COVID19. With this pandemic, going outside to work or even look for a job is very risky.

Many Filipino professionals shifted to work-from-home as part of the new normal. I personally have a friend who hates it! She said it's better to work from the office and yep- I know that working from home is not for everyone. There's a learning curve for most employees to get the hang of it.

Well, the real picture of working remotely or working from home is very different from what we are all experiencing right now. Before this pandemic, our working set up is very ideal and promising for many Filipinos working in the Metro.

So to give you all a perspective, I asked our community of home-based professionals: what is the most rewarding part about working from home and below are their answers:

From the work-at-home parents

1. Jen said, "Right now, I feel safe being at home and at the same time, masaya na kahit nasa bahay lang ako, kumikita ako. Naaalagaan ko pa si Benj, makikita ko how he grows at na enjoy ko yung motherhood."
