man in suit speaking

The IT and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP) said it supports the implementation of the four-day work week scheme although the final decision will still be with the employers because the scheme is not mandatory. IBPAP president and CEO Rey Untal said the association supports the scheme and added that because it is not mandatory, the scheme gives both employers and employees the opportunity to work out what is best for the business. Industry insiders also said that the four-day work week scheme will provide BPO workers more time to regain what their bodies lose from working night shifts. Generally, BPO employees surveyed by ABS-CBN had mixed reactions on the scheme. One said working beyond eight hours is no longer good for the human body while another one stressed the three-day off will allow BPO workers enough sleep and rest.
