Audit passed

The auditor became the auditee. That was the scenario last tuesday, during our trip in one of the company's plantations. Auditors from different companies spent time extracting some findings regarding the good manufacturing and agricultural practices applied in all operations. At first, we were a little bit reluctant in answering the questions. As internal auditors in the company, we efficiently adjusted with their "gentle scrutiny." We're very happy upon knowing that we passed the said audit.

Consumer's TRUST

It is imperative in an exporting company to provide a management system that would uphold quality, corporate social responsibility, environmental concern and health and safety of workers. Likewise, it makes a certain company to be globally competitive in the world market when it comes to quality assurance. Philippines is the primary exporter of banana in Japan. Needless to say, Japanese are very meticulous in choosing their food to be consumed and that also tells that buyers abroad are demanding a guarantee of safe food. A proactive approach is to align the company to international standards. Adhering to International Standards strengthens relationship between the exporting company and consumers all over the world. The zenith which companies should reach is the apex of consumer’s trust. They have to plan, develop, control and act along the challenging years of challenges and opportunities.

In the eyes of a baby

A baby can see more than we might think. It is fascinating to know that babies, even newly born, have already visual abilities. In fact, their experiences are just like similar to the vision of an adult wherein they are able to distinguish the internal features of the face such as eyes, nose and mouth. By 4 to 5 months of age, they can actually recognize his/her mother’s face from all others in the world. The eyes brain and body of a baby, as we all know, undergo dramatic increase in physical size, and that suggests that parents should preserve the accuracy of their babies’ vision during the first year of life.

Missing someone during working hours is like having a haircut with restrained reflexes to answer an urgent text to a vibrating cell phone (inside the pocket). In the middle of the rush due to some reports to be finalized and budgets to be followed up, the inevitable thoughts of missing somebody do occur. It could be the interval of shifting from next file to another that leads me to wander for a while. Truly, it is a sure-fire way to avoid being a zombie in the workplace.
Having a one minute vacation with your loved ones is therapeutic indeed.
