Toby’s Sports Launches “We Got This” Campaign and E-commerce Site

Toby’s Sports, the largest multi-brand sports retailer in the Philippines, today unveiled a national campaign that underlines its aggressive pursuit to promote sports and an active lifestyle. The retail chain also officially launched its e-commerce site, a testament to its commitment to providing the best shopping experience to its customers, further solidifying its place as the sports retailer of choice for Filipinos.

The new campaign, titled “We Got This,” highlights an individual’s journey to achieve success in whatever sport or fitness activity he takes on.

Kaizen: The 10-Minute Change You Need

In this fast-paced society where everyone seems to be on the run, 10 minutes can be crucial. They can mean some spare time to relax, take a breather, listen to music, nap, call people or catch up with friends. Some even get haircuts from Kaizen.

KAIZEN, a novel concept that originated in Japan and has since grown to other countries particularly in Indonesia, has five pillars that make it unique – it’s QUICK, CLEAN, STYLISH, AFFORDABLE and WATERLESS. Its first branch in the Philippines is located at the 5th floor of SM City Manila.

What kind of employee are you? Find out through this cool quiz from Home Credit

The months of March to May are not just associated with summer (although this is hard to ignore considering the high temperatures lately), but also graduation season. And this also means that many new grads are now busy browsing through Jobstreet or LinkedIn looking for job openings - or at the very least, trying to figure out what careers they want to pursue.

But before asking yourselves which employer is best for you, you might want to ask first and foremost a more basic question - what kind of employee are you? This is a very important question to ask and answer, since all too often, employers are looking for specific qualities in applicants that will give them an edge over other job hopefuls.

And what’s more, knowing what kind of employee you are can guide you on which companies or industries to look for in your job search, and increase the chances of you finding your dream job.
