Going Digital,Customer EngagementThe Three C’s You Need to Start Great Work Anywhere
Mar 30, 2022 | 05:41 PM
Remote work has opened possibilities for both employees and businesses. For the workforce, it’s more time spent at home with their families. For companies, it’s fewer costs incurred on maintaining offices. The pandemic has pushed enterprises to evolve and meet their stakeholders, both employees and customers, where they are at—in the digital space. Industry leaders have prioritized digital transformation. But with this development comes some challenges. It's not enough to move the office online. That’s why we have come up with a new solution for the new workplace: a package that enables productive, agile, and secure collaboration all in one platform. This solution seamlessly bridges the gap between the offices and work setups—virtually anywhere. Introducing Globe Work Anywhere Solution , our new offering that places importance on the three C’s you need for productive work, anywhere: connectivity, the Cloud, and cybersecurity. Establishing Reliable and Fast Connectivity A completely virtual work environment enabled by Globe Work Anywhere Solution allows users to work as efficiently as if they were in an office setting. Globe Work Anywhere Solution offers fixed broadband on a fiber network, ensuring uninterrupted Internet access for employees. Furthermore, this new offering from Globe Business is not just limited to companies with extensive IT experience. Due to its simple and straightforward interface, Globe Work Anywhere Solution is easy to manage and deploy. Employees can also access productivity tools available across multiple devices, with the bundled Device Management ensuring that all devices are vetted and secure. The added layer of security does not hinder the actual usable bandwidth. Instead, it guarantees lower latency when accessing data and applications, keeping connections fast and stable. Optimizing the Cloud Now that we have entered the Next Normal , we have all become, in one way or another, familiar with cloud computing. Known as the backbone and enabler of digitalization, the Cloud is not just an additional virtual space where you can store company files and software. It is a specialized platform that can be configured depending on your needs. Companies can use cloud computing to host online services needed for work such as corporate emails, phone systems, and backup storage. More than making it easy for employees to access the data that they need to accomplish tasks, storing files in the same central location ensures that files are automatically synced between work devices and that everyone is accessing the most up-to-date version. This is especially important for projects spanning multiple departments within the company. Not only will this boost collaboration between teams, but it will also make accountability easier to track. Using Globe Work Anywhere Solution ensures that through the Cloud, work remains uninterrupted and continuous no matter what device your employees are using. Stable and secure, this total ICT ecosystem is also user-friendly. Companies with limited IT manpower will still find it easy to use and manage. Investing in Cybersecurity Other than the usual problems associated with remote work such as the deployment of work tools and interruptions caused by connectivity issues, one of the most pressing matters is the added exposure of users to cyberattacks. This is especially true nowadays when targeted attacks are becoming more sophisticated and dangerous. The heightened cyber threats brought about by remote work can be countered with a sound cybersecurity strategy at the core of your digitalization journey. All employees, both executives and rank-and-file, must be educated on safety measures to prevent cyberattacks. According to the IBM Cyber Security Intelligence Index Report, 95% of breaches are caused by human error, consisting of inattentiveness to malicious links, sharing or misplacement of devices with confidential data, and lack of education on cybersecurity best practices. Proper vetting of devices used by the workforce will go a long way in protecting your company. Globe Work Anywhere Solution eliminates the need for IT to physically assess the security of deployed devices. The Solution allows for the enforcement of a company’s cybersecurity policies across all users. Furthermore, system administrators can customize access granted to employees depending on their roles and the projects that they are part of. The technologies presented by Globe Work Anywhere Solution tie in with our sustainability efforts , which are aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDG)—in particular the ninth, highlighting the roles of infrastructure and innovation as crucial drivers of economic growth and development. Globe is committed to upholding the UN Global Compact principles and contributes to 10 UN SDGs. With Globe Work Anywhere Solution, enable productivity, accessibility, secure collaboration, and more, anywhere—with all the tools you need in one.

Globe came into this year-long tie-up with the aim to redefine every Ortigas Malls’ customer experience, provide them with products relevant to their daily lives, and offer them online and onsite solutions—all to augment Ortigas Malls and Ortigas Community Card memberships by 2024. “Our partnership with Ortigas Malls is focused on contributing to community building and helping the Philippine economy gain momentum towards the ‘Better Normal.’ Together with Ortigas Malls, we want to be able to provide every Filipino with digital solutions and services to help them regain their footing, be it in their personal lives or their careers, and to also ensure that all our endeavors are aligned with our sustainability programs,” said Raymond Policarpio, Vice President for Product Management and Marketing at Globe Business, Enterprise Group. Exclusive Promos for Ortigas Community Cardholders To enhance the club members’ customer experience, Globe will provide Ortigas Community Cardholders with premier GPlan mobile postpaid deals that aim to give them more value for their money. Customers will also be able to receive exclusive discounts on Globe At Home broadband products, so they can enjoy dynamic internet bundles, stronger connections, and even free internet speed boosts. Easy and Convenient Transactions through GCash In partnership with Ortigas Malls, cash-in machines will be deployed across various malls so that customers can easily add funds to their GCash wallets. These cash-in machines will double as e-loading and bill payment stations to diversify customers’ options for convenient transactions. Customers can also enjoy cashless QR payments through GCash Scan-to-Pay when they shop and dine in Ortigas Malls establishments. On top of all that, they can look forward to in-mall events and promos that GCash and the Ortigas Malls will launch together.

This service is available in Greenhills Mall, Tiendesitas, Capitol Commons and Estancia Mall; and Industria Mall. Responsible Electronic Waste Recycling Initiatives with Globe E-Waste Zero (EWZ) Program Last but not the least, Globe and Ortigas Malls’ partnership envisions the entire Ortigas community going green through responsible electronic waste (e-waste) management. Members of the community can dispose of their old, non-working electronic devices through designated Globe e-waste bins which will be deployed in different parts of Ortigas commercial properties. E-waste bins can accommodate small and handy e-waste items such as mobile phones, cable wires (except fiber optic), CDs, and DVDs. Community members can request door-to-door hauling of bulky and multiple bulky e-wastes by filling out a form on the Globe website: www.globe.com.ph/about-us/sustainability/environment . Globe is set to actively promote its partnership with Ortigas Malls and is expected to offer members exclusive promos through online and offline channels and platforms. In the near future, select Ortigas Malls and establishments will be equipped to make life easier for consumers. “We are truly excited about this monumental partnership with Globe. And there are so many surprises in store for all our mall-goers and Ortigas Community Cardholders—all anchored on digital solutions and sustainability initiatives that the entire Ortigas community can look forward to and participate in,” shared Arch. Renee C. Bacani, Vice President of Ortigas Malls.
