It’s been a bit hectic in the office lately. With the holidays fast approaching, brands and advertisers are all giddy to start up their own Christmas campaigns and holiday promos. Man, if my time-management skills were off just for a moment, I’d probably be freaking out already!
However, what keeps me sane in spite of the freakishly tight schedule and incessant demands of clients, is that I have a healthy working environment and pretty cool people to work with. “We have fun while getting the work done!” – I’d often hear that whenever we’re asked about how we do our jobs.
I remember when I was a fresh graduate and enthusiastically looking for my first job. Apparently, it’s a bit tougher than I thought it would be! I spent a few weeks hoping from one job interview to another and sadly, it’s either the employer isn’t hiring fresh graduates, or I’m not very happy with their offer. Eventually, I hum bled myself and lowered my standards a little bit knowing that I don’t really have that much work experience yet however, I still made sure that wherever it is that I end up working, it has to be (1) offering a decent pay, and (2) has a healthy working environment.
The working environment is as important to me as the job that I’m gonna be doing and the salary that I’m getting when considering a job. If I’m not mistaken, a lot of companies now are trying to make their offices more employee-friendly, like having free food, recreational areas, even going as far as making sure that the office layout and design would be comfortable for the personnel. Teletech for example, (I was able to visit their 17th site in Araneta, Cubao), gives importance to the welfare of their employees as much as the quality of service they provide their customers. I was a part of the tour that they had for their new site at Araneta, Cubao and I must say I’m pretty impressed with their efforts for the site. Let me take you through the tour with the pictures below:
