Work from home (WFH) has been the response of most businesses when the pandemic struck. But in AboitizLand, telecommuting was already being planned for implementation even months before the outbreak as a way to make the business more resilient and future-ready.
Telecommuting or remote working reduces the need for team members to travel. According to vice president for Corporate Services Philbright Ang Ti, they were aiming to boost productivity rates and encourage a better work-life balance.
“The plans started before the pandemic hit and fortunately we just had to accelerate our transition to WFH due to the stay-at-home mandates,” Ang Ti said.
The adjustment allows AboitizLand to lessen the risk of Covid-19 spread and endangering everyone, and the setup will remain post-pandemic.
The work-from-anywhere option is available to all employees as a long-term work policy of the company. Team members can agree on an arrangement with their team leaders regarding the need to report in the office or at the site, and other considerations.
Currently, 20.98 percent of AboitizLand employees are working at the site front lines, 56.59 percent are reporting to the office when needed, and 22.44 percent are purely working from home.
AboitizLand believes that this arrangement will serve to build trust within the teams.
