September Celebration: GO-VA Got Talent Season 3
September 20, 2019

At times, we become so busy and so engulfed in our everyday lives that we fail to reflect internally and take care of one crucial and important person: yourself.

This month, our CEO Fiona Kesby reminded everyone that we are all remarkable people, capable of achieving goals and exceeding expectations – however, our pursuit of excellence should come at no cost to our health and well-being.

GO-VA strives to create a healthy work-life balance, and we continue to remind everyone to be mindful of the time they put into work and the time they spend on rest and recuperation.

Read more about the science of sleep and the value of self-care below.

We took opening new doors to a whole new level with the official ribbon-cutting ceremony of our IT Park, Cebu office. Indeed, it was a milestone we all were proud of.

We are always proud to have team members who not only achieve goals, but also exceed expectations. As our way of celebrating our wins for the month of August, we all went  to dine at the Vikings Luxury Buffet, along with our family and friends.

How to Be More Productive

In order to truly be productive, we must first look within ourselves. When we are not practising good self-care, we are essentially fighting against being productive.

Do you know that there is one thing you can do – that is super easy and very accessible – to become more productive?

It’s sleep!

Yes, getting a good night’s sleep allows your mind and body to refresh so that you are ready to take on the following day’s work!

Watch the video below to understand the Science of Better Sleep:
