Work at home and the new normal
June 9, 2020 7:31pm CST
Last week l had spent 3days reporting at work. This week I just stay at home to work and started attending webinars about doing work online under the new normal. Even our accounting system will have to adjust because of this. The office has approved to look for accounting system that is online and on cloud. Even the banking system we have to adjust from the usual check preparation to have it online for payments already. All of this so we can avoid going directly to banks which is just too long to line up and many things to do before you can transact your business there. Today I am again scheduled to attend to a new normal webinar about labor rules about the different ways to do a work at home arrangements and its implications on laws that exist today. Hoping this would be an interesting topic to learn today.

@allen0187 I kind of liking it to working on your house clothes no need to wake up early and dressed up for work to commute from home to workplace vv. But when there are documents to prepare that needs approval it can be cumbersome too that you have to travel to the approvers’ residence to have them signed. It could take some time before everything is done.
so many things to learn now. this means internet have to be stable, same with electricity. it also means being vigilant about privacy and security about company and employee information. i noticed the bank here is open now, but they say only until 2pm and no weekends yet.

Here's the irony in my life. When I worked outside the home I always wanted the option to be able to work from home. But my employers never gave it to me. So I hired myself and started working from home. Now it seems that everybody is working from home and all talking about the "new normal". The "new normal" for other people is something I always wanted to do anyway!
