GCash, manpower firm IKON team up to extend digital financial services to OFWs

GCash supports IKON Manning Solutions’ job fair for Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs).

The Void is not synonymous with stagnation; rather, it's a fertile ground for exploration and discovery. By understanding and embracing the Void, creatives can liberate themselves from the constraints of expectation and perfectionism. This liberation becomes a catalyst for fresh ideas, enabling a departure from the ordinary and a journey into uncharted territories of innovation.

Navigating the Void requires a willingness to confront uncertainty and silence the noise of external influences. It's a practice in mindfulness and self-discovery—a journey into the depths of one's own thoughts and emotions. In this solitude, creatives often find the raw materials for groundbreaking concepts, discovering connections and patterns that were previously obscured.

The process of engaging with the Void is not about avoiding challenges but transforming them into opportunities. It encourages a shift in perspective, viewing obstacles not as roadblocks but as stepping stones to innovation. By understanding 'the Void' as a realm of potential, creatives unlock the door to their most authentic and impactful work, revealing the beauty that emerges when the creative spirit is allowed to roam freely. In essence, the Void becomes not an abyss to be feared, but a sanctuary where creativity thrives, and our most brilliant ideas come to life.

GCash, the country’s leading finance app, has teamed up with, IKON Manning Solutions, its first talent-sourcing agency partner, to provide overseas Filipino workers with essential digital financial services to help them support their families back home.

With this, GCash and IKON aim to address the needs of the global Filipino community, providing them with a secure and convenient way to manage their finances while enjoying the app’s various services, including sending money to the Philippines, paying bills, purchasing mobile load and more.

As part of the partnership, GCash will also educate departing OFWs on the importance of digital proficiency and how they can achieve their financial goals and support their family back home through the app. Additionally, GCash and IKON will conduct a financial literacy program to extend their support to 2.33 million OFWs.

Moreover, OFWs set to leave the country can also have access to exclusive services offered by IKON via the GCash app.

“We recognize the hard work and sacrifices of OFWs and their big contribution to our economy. Through our partnership, Filipinos can find more career opportunities at IKON via the GJobs feature of the app. They can also access GLoans and experience more convenient transactions with the recruitment agency as one of its partner merchant billers,”

said GCash International General Manager Paul Albano.

He also shared that the partnership will allow users to access a wide digital library of relevant and informative content from IKON via Pinoy Channel, from tips on adjusting to life while working abroad to financial management tips and helpful tailor-fit hacks for OFWs.
