The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many to make the abrupt shift to working from home. It has also opened new employment opportunities. However, is online work sustainable in the long run?

This infographic provides a glimpse of the online work landscape in the country. It also looks at the advantages and the challenges of working on a digital platform and identifies the gaps that the government needs to narrow to help online workers harness the benefits and overcome the challenges in this work arrangement.

This infographic is based on the PIDS Discussion Paper titled “Towards a Sustainable Online Work in the Philippines: Learnings from the Online Survey of Market and Nonmarket Work during the Enhanced Community Quarantine” written by Connie Bayudan-Dacuycuy, Aniceto C. Orbeta Jr., Ramonette B. Serafica, and Lora Kryz C. Baje, senior research fellows and research analyst, respectively, at PIDS. This publication may be downloaded here:
