Balancing It All, with Burg

Margot Moore

It's one big happy family

Burg joined our Manila team in 2017 and is one of the longest serving members of our Centre of Excellence where he has been a Sourcing Specialist and most recently, promoted to a Team Leader.

When describing what he enjoys about working at Hudson RPO, what stands out for Burg is the working relationship he has with his colleagues, clients and managers.

‘Hudson RPO feels like a family, we’re really close. It’s very different from previous companies because it’s more than just being supported to do your job – the people here genuinely care,’ he says.

Managing the family business

Something that Burg believes sets Hudson RPO apart from his previous employers is that he now feels like he has a genuine balance between work and home.

‘My manager doesn’t like us to do overtime. It’s really important to me because it means I can do what I’m passionate about outside of work hours,’ he explains.

And for Burg, one of his main passions is playing an important role in his family business.

‘My work schedule is 7am to 4pm and I still have a lot of extra time after that.’

‘After my work, I handle family business. We have a poultry business and I actually go to the farm and take care of the chickens,’ explains Burg.

Time for the things that matter most

The Hudson RPO culture of work life balance isn’t the only thing that supports Burg’s ability to maintain his family business. Another important aspect is being given the chance to work remotely from his home province.

‘It’s really beneficial for me to work from home. When I was working from Manila, I had limited time to do things after work because the traffic is so heavy – it took up much of my time. I was renting a house away from my family and I didn’t have time to do other things,’ he says.

Since joining Hudson RPO, Burg has found a harmonious balance between work and life, including time for his other passions like donating blood regularly and using social media to advocate for local tourism in his home province.

An exciting future

Four years on from joining the Hudson RPO family, Burg is more excited about his future with the business than ever.

‘I am really excited about the growth of the Manila team and to see people given the chance to excel. Our global team and clients recognise that our roles are very important to the overall success of the business, and I am looking forward to future changes and challenges.’
