can be applied in every aspects of our life. Not just in the workplace but also in our daily activities and everyday living. We have different ways to be productive. Some doing physical activities to improve their physical health. Acquiring and learning new skills and knowledge. Some will spent their time discovering their hidden talent during pandemic.
In the classic business sense, productivity is an economic measurement of the process of creating goods and services. Productivity is the amount of output created by an individual, team, or organization related to the amount of input that went into it. The basic formula used to measure productivity is the output divided by the input.
Productivity is one of the important factors of economic growth and it was severely affected by the health crisis we are facing right now. When the Government declared Community Quarantine last March, our Productivity and daily activities are limited because of the strict rules implemented by the government to contain the deadly virus.
Supposedly, Students during that time are preparing for final exams and those students who will graduating was very excited. But somehow the unexpected happens. Metro Manila was put in Enhanced Community Quarantine implementing the much more strict health protocols to contain the spread of virus. School classes are suspended, National parks and tourist site are closed, Many businesses are closed resulting the increase of unemployment rate.
People are not allowed to go outside without a valid reason. The turn out of such situations immediately affects the productivity, slowing the economic activities.
Most of us spent almost of our time in our home during pandemic because of the strict rules of community quarantine. With movie theaters are closed, food chain are closed,no restaurants to dine in and Shopping Malls are not allowed to open.
Online survey and analysis by online data providers, reveals that our behavior shifted. Most of us are now focused on electronics, cellphone through browsing the internet and playing mobile games. Others shifted their business presence online. The data traffic creates a economic activities but only to one sector which is the telecommunications.
Most of us are trying to entertain ourselves through social media. But during Quarantine I discover something that can help to increase my knowledge through online learning.
