The majority of BPO companies in the Philippines observe graveyard shifts. Thus, leaving no space for a dayshift job.
Since the Philippines became one of the most competitive countries in the BPO industry, its growth dramatically rose over a limited span of time. As this industry soared, it opened a lot of opportunities for the unemployed. Despite its flight, every business sure has a flaw. For the BPO industry, it is its “night shifts”.
Contact centres usually operate at night to accommodate overseas clients with different timezones. However, the drastic change in every employees’ body clock brought a lot of health issues. Agents have no choice but to report at work when most people are in deep sleep, and their safe travel home raises concerns.
On the other hand, there are still a few BPO companies who offer dayshift jobs! And I dare say, it’s a gem on the field. Who would say no to, right?
Then let’s distinguish the benefits of a dayshift job.
Most employees prefer working in the morning like everyone else, rather than in the middle of the night. As for the food, everything else from fast food to bakeries is still open during the day. However, during at night, there were only a limited number of 24/7 stores from which you could buy. Also, personal tasks like paying bills, grocery shopping, even to the mere mall hopping is still doable.
A healthy work-life balance is essential for an employee’s performance. It contributes to the well-being and mental health of each employee that might affect her/his productivity. Working on a dayshift can spare you so much time to go home when everyone else in your household is still awake. On the contrary, when assigned to the night shift, it is almost impossible to keep your family and social life intact.
No matter how young or old an individual is, one’s health remains the most important. However, working on the night shift has serious disadvantages. While young, mild palpitations and irregular sleeping patterns are still fine. Contrastingly, during the mid-30s, your body will slowly start to betray you. You’ll be in for several serious conditions, such as diabetes, ulcers, cardiovascular disease, and more.
It is not rocket science to understand that night commute is unsafe. As the most heinous crimes happen at night, it is very much dangerous to travel, whilst, alone at the wee of hour. No matter how ready you are for possible attacks, the risks still won’t decrease.
For an employee, receiving a huge paycheck every end of the month is greatly fulfilling. Even so, there are bigger factors that aid each employee to maintain a healthy work-life balance. Particulars like a happy working environment and schedule are also of huge importance.
