For Charlene Bautista, Accounting Supervisor for Real Estate Management Services team, the best thing about working at Colliers is the opportunity to be given a voice to share one’s views and opinions.

 
1. What is the best thing about working in Colliers?
 

The best thing about working in Colliers is that the management cares about its people and our professional growth as well. The management is always willing to listen to what its employees have to say about the business and everything.

 

2. How do you balance work and life during this pandemic?

At first, it was difficult balancing work and home, but as time went by I learned to cope and balance my work and personal life. I also consider the pandemic as a blessing in disguise because I got to spend more time with my family. But I always make sure to get my work done before any leisure time with them.

3. Name a memorable experience working as a member of the support team in Colliers?

Because this is my first work after graduating from college, I must say that my stay here has been memorable so far. There were a lot of firsts: first meeting with a client, first work done, first deadline to meet, and first mistake to commit as well.

4. What advice would you give your younger self?

Just be patient and don’t rush things. There is always a perfect time for anything and always remember that everything happens for a reason.

5. If you could swap places with someone for a day, who would it be and why?

If I would be given a chance, I would choose to swap places with the president of the Philippines. I believe that one must not judge a person until they’ve walked a mile in their shoes, so I would like to experience to be a president even just for a day and see how hard it is to lead the whole country.
