Maring PH

Today, I battle with the rest of my 70+ employees as we brave the storm “Maring.” Yesterday was still manageable at work but today was different. I received a phone call from my mom that our home was already affected by the flooding in the area (that sucks!) and I was texting all my line managers to check on their safety as well as their teams. At the same time I was asked by my 7 bosses for some urgent deliverables. Today was not a good day for everyone. Work was easy to deliver what I cannot fathom is seeing my people stranded in the office with no food. Yes, they have shelter but times like this, they should be with their family (aren’t we all?). I know I can only do so much for them. I welcome them in my home for shelter, for food and for anything else that I can give. I hope those people who can help will provide assistance without the order. This is the time we need to unite as Filipinos. Let’s pray for the Philippines.
