Badass of December 2020 – JP

The recipient of Atelier Lumikha’s December 2020 Badass Award is our Human Resources Supervisor—Superhuman John Paul Oira. Being the HR Supervisor, JP has always been the go-to person for everyone’s work-related concerns. 

True to his superhuman nature, JP even extended his services during our Christmas celebration by personally delivering gifts from the company to each employee based in Negros Oriental. 

JP has been with Lumikha since 2015. He started as a part-time content writer for six months before working full time. In 2016, he became the social media and recruitment officer, and in 2017, he was promoted to his current position. 

Ms. Jenny Bertol-Tan, Atelier Lumikha’s Director, praised JP’s dedication to his work and loyalty to the company and his teammates. She emphasized that JP’s willingness to go above and beyond what is expected of him and his eagerness to accept challenges truly makes him deserving of the award.

Atelier Lumikha awards the Badass Employee of the Month to someone who exceeds his/her job expectations. 

1. How do you motivate yourself to be exceptional in your job while maintaining a work-life balance?

I think it can be attributed to my constant goal not to be mediocre and my quest to do something significant every day. I just do my job but doing it the best way possible. Maybe that makes doing my job exceptional.

2. Please give us your tips to become an effective employee.

You have to love what you are doing. You are an employee for most of your waking hours in a workday, so doing something you love is definitely worthwhile. And if you love your work, it is not “hard” work. Then, set your priorities and goals for the day to be guided. And never stop learning.

3. Can you share a piece of advice with those who want to excel in their line of work?

Love what you are doing. Never settle for mediocrity. Learn always. Be open to criticism because we can always learn from it and that there is always room for improvement.
