The quarantine period has made everyone undergo huge adjustments, particularly those who were forced to work from home (WFH), including HDI Admix employees.

Work from home was something new to us. In fact, it was quite a challenge at first. We thought that the lack of resources will hinder operations, but our burning commitment has helped us turn things around and observe the work from home set-up smoothly. It is indeed true, that better versions of ourselves come out during tough times. Work from home allowed us to discover positive shifts we thought we could never do.


Things can be done online. The situation has squeezed our brains to come up with solutions on how we can make things work efficiently even while working from home. In a matter of days, we were able to transition our processes online. Even paper trails, partner engagements and payments are done online. This shift has even made us rethink our current internal processes, incorporating online transactions and it has made us accept that ONLINE processes need to be prioritized.


Better collaboration. The work from home setup allowed us to coordinate better across departments. For some reason, we had more discussions, more collaboration and deeper conversations during this period compared to when we were all in the office. Probably because in the office, we are all physically separated by walls and fixtures. But during work from home, we all go to one space, and that is the ONLINE space. There are no barriers (even with some technical glitch or connection problems). Work from home has created stronger bonds, openness and unity for us. This doesn’t just apply internally. As a matter of fact, some employees have also shared that their communication with partners and stakeholders has become better during this time.


Wiser use of time. We didn’t have to run to check in right on time because of the long travel and traffic going to work. Work from home has made us use our time wiser and better. We were able to work on time (and even earlier). The 1-2 hours travel time was converted to something more meaningful and purposeful.

We can do it. Who would have thought we could do it? Despite the doubts, here we are, we are winning the work-from-home setup! We have remained productive, in fact, even more productive during this period. It has made us become more resourceful and creative in coming up with ideas to deliver what is expected of us. Since the situation is unusual, we were all stretched to do better, to rethink our strategies and really focus on things that will bring progress for our company and the employees.
