Employees’ Malasakit

by | May 31, 2017

Think about the admirable Filipino values. Practicing these values in the workplace is necessary and desirable. Filipinos know teamwork, responsibility, and accountability. More than these, we have “malasakit”.

Your pain is my pain. That is what malasakit is all about. Whatever we do or not do will have an impact on the lives of others.

When we refuse to help someone in need, we refuse to help ourselves too.

Malasakit is not an action that we require from each other because they are expected to act. It is more than responsibility. It is more than accountability.

It is not even love because love is given to someone you know and value. Malasakit is given even to a stranger. It is given even to those who cannot return a favor. It is given even to those who do not ask for help.

It is not difficult to find people with malasakit.

They appear every time tragedies happen. You must have seen them during Ondoy. There are many who endured sleepless nights because they wanted to help.

We can create a culture of Malasakit in the workplace. We must be people of malasakit in the workplace.

An employee with malasakit take full ownership of the success and failure of an organization, of a community, and of a nation. They work because they know that doing so will make an impact to others.

By creating the culture of malasakit in the workplace, we help the employees strengthen their commitment to each other and to the community they are serving.

Let us build each other through malasakit.

It is great to see people with malasakit during the good times too.
