From before CoViD to after disruption two companies transition

Jun Vallecera



Since the 1918 Spanish flu, no other disease has affected the world like the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) wherein countries around the world are still struggling to flatten the rise in cases while keeping their economies afloat — a volatile balancing act between humanity and economy.

It is no different in the Philippines where after the government lifted the three-month work suspension of non-essential enterprises in June, companies in the National Capital Region (NCR) and Cebu City — the country’s two busiest economic centers — are struggling to get back on track amid strengthened efforts to prevent the virus’ further spread.

Business process outsourcing companies Synchrony Global Services Philippines and Ingram Micro Philippines are among the companies that made adjustments to ensure the health and safety of workers as work-from-home arrangements have become part of the “new normal.”

And as both companies were rated among the five Best Workplaces in the Philippines in 2020 by Great Place To Work Philippines on 1 May, Synchrony and Ingram Micro took the challenge of making their virtual workplace ideal for its employees.
