Women's Day Special Feature: Alma Revillo, Site Director & Program Delivery Leader - Concentrix

Alma Revillo

Site Director & Program Delivery Leader - Concentrix

Tell us one of your superwoman moments. 
Driving around looking for open restaurants / convenient stores to get food for my team onsite who are busy dismantling and boxing desktops & peripherals for deployment to employees’ homes so they can go online and work and have money to pay their bills. This was at the height of the quarantine where no public transportation is available and people are locked down at respective homes until further notice. I was stopped at a couple military checkpoints & pretended to be an IT personnel trying to reach one of our sites for support.

What/who motivates you in life?  
Seeing my daughter grow up to her full potential and the opportunity to help others – whether at work or in my community in whatever capacity I can.

What's your me-time? 
Car rides with family and playing with my dogs

How do you balance work and home while working from home?
We organize our family schedule for the week to consider school activities, family errands and work schedule to follow. My husband and I decide in advance who will do the errands or be with my daughter in case any of us is needed in the office or will be stuck for longer than usual hours in meetings. Setting up a separate home office also helps establish the routine which my family knows that when I’m inside, they need to knock or message me in advance should they need to see me or have things to consult.

A motivational message for other women out there.
This has been a guiding principle for me as  I work on attaining that work-life balance.
“The most important work you and I will ever do will be within the walls of our own homes.” – Harold B. Lee
No matter how tied up we are with deliverables and deadlines at work, it is important that we deal with our family responsibilities first and be present whenever we are at home. When we do this, there is peace & harmony in our family and we will be able to accomplish our lined up tasks or even adhoc ones at work as there will be no disruptions in between.
