Microsoft PH Employees to Get Enhanced Leave Benefits

Multinational company rolls out new leave policies for parents and family caregivers

MANILA – Microsoft Philippines has introduced a new suite of enhanced leave benefits for its employees, including a minimum of 20-weeks paid leave for birth mothers and a minimum of six-weeks paid leave for new fathers.

“We believe in fostering a healthy work-life balance. And at times, your personal commitments and responsibilities outside the office deserve all your focus. This is something Microsoft fully understands and supports,” described Karrie Ilagan, Microsoft Philippines Managing Director.

The company’s enhanced leave benefits also cover adoptive parents and parents who choose to have a child via surrogacy.

Likewise, the Information Technology leader has leave policies for family caregivers—allowing employees to take a four-week full-paid leave to care for immediate family members with serious health conditions.

“Our employees bring their best to work every day to support our mission, strategy, and culture. In return, we want to bring the best to them as well by continually providing them world-class benefits to ensure they have the time they need to take care of those that matter the most in their lives,” concluded Ilagan.

“It is true – hindi lang laro ang laro. Johnson’s® is a believer of playtime because of the multiple benefits it gives kids.

Awesome Wigs for Less Than $20

This is a sponsored post. Everything you find in this post is based on my personal opinion only. 

Hair plays very importantly in a woman’s life especially since it’s her crowning glory. A messy hair can ruin her day and on the other hand, beautiful-looking hair can uplift her day. That’s why having great hair is also important because it boosts self-esteem and self-confidence in an individual.
  
But there are also people who want to change hairstyles in an instant especially those who often go to parties or gatherings. Of course, since you can’t cut or color your hair to your desired color all the time, a simple solution is to find a wig that suits your style and budget. Divatress offers almost all different kinds of wigs including outre wigs, synthetic hair wigs, human hair wigs, and more.


Since Divatress offers a huge variety of wigs, I chose to focus on their budget-friendly wigs or more specifically, wigs that are under $20 only! Here are some pictures of the wigs from Divatress that might interest you. 

OUTRE QUICK WEAVE COMPLETE CAP WIG – STEPHANIE
$12.95
I really like this neat and pretty wig that can be used in a professional environment or even on casual meetings. 

OUTRE SOL WEAVE – BODY TWIST
$5.95
For party goers, for special occasions or formal events, the outre sol weave is one of the best looks to go. The look has class and elegance that makes any girl look and feel more beautiful. 

OUTRE QUICK WEAVE ECO WIG – AUDREY
$15.95
When I first saw this wig while I was canvassing the website, I was like "Whoa! That looks amazing," which is why I included it here. I believe this wig is the look you can use every day. 

The wigs look amazing, aren't they? For more outre wigs, do visit www.divatress.com and you might find the one that you're looking for.

Herbalife Nutrition Urges Southeast Asia Consumers to Actively Combat Obesity with Balanced Nutrition Habits


Speaking at the Southeast Asia Public Health Conference, Herbalife Nutrition Advisory Board Member Dr. Wang Chin-Kun underscored the role of balanced nutrition in the fight against obesity.


Global nutrition company, Herbalife (NYSE:HLF), is urging Southeast Asia consumers to actively combat obesity by adopting balanced nutrition habits in everyday living. Speaking at a lunch symposium of the 1st Southeast Asia Public Health Nutrition (SEA-PHN) Conference, Herbalife Nutrition Advisory Board Member Dr. Chin-Kun Wang highlighted the role of balanced nutrition in supporting the fight against obesity and expressed concern on how often it has been underestimated in the region. Held on May 14 – 17, 2017 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the SEA-PHN Conference aims to promote and sustain public health nutrition in the SEA region.

“Herbalife Nutrition is honored to be a Diamond Sponsor of the 1st Southeast Asia Public Health Nutrition Conference," said Mr. Stephen Conchie, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Herbalife Asia Pacific. "We aim to inspire positive nutrition habits all around the world, and this conference is the perfect platform for us to continue promoting the benefits of balanced nutrition in Southeast Asia. Through supporting and participating in this conference, we hope to share the science behind this philosophy with stakeholders from the health and nutrition industry, and work with like-minded partners to collectively combat obesity in the region.”

Dr. Wang, an expert in metabolism and nutrition, and the president of the International Society for Nutraceuticals and Functional Foods, and council member of the Federation Association of Asian Nutrition Societies, said, “With the percentage of overweight and obese people in Southeast Asia having risen from 19.8% in 2010 to 22% in 2014, consumers need to be more aware of the associated health challenges – such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and cancer associated with being overweight and obesity. While there are many known ways to fight obesity, adopting balanced nutrition habits is generally considered a safer and more sustainable way to combat obesity for most population groups.”

Sharing practical tips on adopting balanced nutrition habits with nutrition experts and medical professionals, Dr. Wang added that calculating calorie intake and consuming high quality protein are important habits to cultivate in weight management. They can empower consumers with the nutritional understanding to better plan their meals and help prevent overeating. In addition, he recommended that consumers favor soybean proteins for their positive and functional impact on human health, such as the prevention of cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis, and reduced risk for some cancers.
Herbalife Nutrition also conducted a series of activities at their exhibition booth, to help conference delegates understand the Herbalife Balanced Nutrition Philosophy and incorporate balanced nutrition habits into daily living.
