Homegrown brands, businesses take the spotlight

WITH micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) actually making up 99.5 percent of business establishments in the Philippines (according to the DTI), it’s high time they get the shine they deserve. Popular leisure destination Shangri-La Plaza is leading the way in celebrating these homegrown brands with the month-long “Bayanihang Lokal.”

A staunch and longtime supporter of proudly-Filipino enterprises and products, Shang is firing up the bayanihan spirit and lining up a series of bazaars that promote high quality local goods from different regions for the entire MSME Month this July.

After kicking off the month-long festivities with a showcase of businesses from the Bicol region and Metro Manila, the buzz continues with the focus now on Rizal Province. While it may be most known for its rich local arts scene, the Tindahang Rizalenyo fair is determined to present a new gamut of innovative and quality products solely manufactured in the province. The local lifestyle store will be at the Shang from July 14 to 17 at the East Atrium to showcase Rizal-made eats and treats, as well as fashion and art pieces.

Looking for something to spruce up personal spaces? The Urban Pod Bazaar from July 20 to 24 at the Grand Atrium encourages mall guests to discover and shop unique local finds, interior accessories, and novelty items to help with a mid-year mini revamp.

There’s no better time to ignite that bayanihan spirit than now. Show love for and support all things local at Shangri-La Plaza’s ongoing Bayanihang Lokal.

Pitfalls of being good at work

ONE of the first inequalities I discovered when I started working after college was that the good ones were always assigned to the difficult projects. I learned that firsthand when I pulled all stops to get ahead of my colleagues and showed my first boss that I was up to any task he assigned. When promotion season came, I was passed over for someone who successfully closed a project only the previous month while I was slaving to complete projects since I started. After a few weeks, I started looking for new work and I got my promotion in another organization.
