It’s What I Do:
Fritz Sapon Servanez
Assistant Manager for Administration & Accounts Dept. – LG Electronics Middle East
As Assistant Manager for the Administration and Accounts department of LG Electronics Middle East, I am responsible for processing payments to all our employees and suppliers. I am also authorized to transact with banks. My manager and I are the contact persons for all queries with regards to our companies accounting and financial issues.
To start my day right, I offer a prayer. I pray for the renewal of my strength and patience. As an accountant, a typical day means checking and responding to e-mails from employees and suppliers. It also means checking bank statements for all cash inflows and outflows, preparing checks for any urgent payments , and asking suppliers for updated statement of accounts for reconciliation. Yes, it all sounds very routine, but for me it is a very fulfilling job.
Lasting success doesn’t come overnight. We all have to work hard for it. Respect your seniors, do what is right and treat your company as if it’s your own. Trust in God’s plan for your life. His timing is always perfect.
Jennifer O. Gonzales
HR and Relations Manager
United International Private School
As Human Resources and Relations Manager of UIPS in Dubai, I am part of the management team that handles policy formulation, direction, recommendation and review for the improvement of existing systems and programs in the school. Most of all, I am responsible for training and developing employees to help them excel in their respective fields of expertise. Having worked in the Philippine government for 26 years or so, my skills set is unique as it is rigorous and extensive. I am also credited for spearheading and institutionalizing several CSR programs for UIPS.
MY WORK DAY
My job entails common sense, hard work, discipline, and promoting the Filipino heritage of excellence. It is a demanding job, but thankfully, I manage to take the challenges that come my way in stride. Despite my hectic schedule, I make sure to accommodate projects that help galvanize the spirit of volunteerism in the hearts of our kabayans.
Be proud of your identity as a Filipino! Help those who are underserved and underprivileged. It will give you inner peace and the confidence to face your Creator.
