DOH and DOLE to Introduce "SEX" to Call Center Agents

The Department of Health and Department of Labor and Employment created a partnership that will take care of our fellow call center agents here in the Philippines by introducing "SEX" to these graveyard shift workers.

This SEX joint project by the two departments is not the sex we know. It rather stands for "Stress-free, Eat the right food and Exercise". The health-related project was launched last Friday due to BPO employees in our country are highly prone to unhealthy lifestyles such as smoking, drinking, lack of sleep and proper physical exercise. 

With this project a team of health experts from DOH will visit business processing outsourcing (BPO) companies in Metro Manila and conduct a 30-minute lecture about on how to have a healthy lifestyle and how these agents could ease stress before office hours and this will last for three months. Evaluation will be conducted as well and anyone who will be found needing medication will be assisted. 

According to Ethelyn Nieto, former DOH secretary and chair of the technical and working group for the iCare project, she said on a report on "We'll make sure that this will not just a ningas kugon ( something that does not last ) because after three months, we'll go back and assist the agents. And then after six months and then one year, we'll go back again. 

SEX projected will be initiated in atleast 30 BPO companies in Metro Manila starting next month which will cover around 200,000 call center representatives in the industry. This joint moves by the DOH and DOLE made happen in coordination with the Business Processing Association of the Philippines and the Call Center Association of the Philippines and with sponsorship by Century Tuna, Asia Brewery and United Laboratory's RiteMed for vitamins. 

I am happy this kind of project was created as I have been in the industry of BPO for few years now ann I personally witness on a daily basis how some of our TSRs and CSRs live unhealthy lives and that is the fact we cannot deny. This SEX initiatives will really help many of the people in this kind of work not just to educate them but also to help them achieve that kind of lifestyle what will make them healthy and more capable of doing the jobs and conrtol stress while within or outside of working environment.
