Work-from-home schemes for BPOs

The Department of Information and Communications Technology asked the business process outsourcing sector to explore work-from-home arrangements to maintain business continuity during the Luzon-wide quarantine period.

The DICT issued a circular recommending that work-from-home arrangements, as far as practicable, be adopted by ICT-BPO companies.

It said the ICT-BPO sector should transfer the necessary equipment to facilitate WFH arrangements within the period set by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Disease.

ICT-BPO companies were also allowed to continue workplace operations through a skeleton workforce.

“Employees are permitted mobility to and from their place of work within areas affected by the quarantine, provided that appropriate temporary accommodation and/or shuttle service arrangements, within the immediate vicinity of the workplace shall be provided,” the DICT said.
