List of ESL Companies with Incentives Schemes

Teachers who work at home for ESL Companies are considered as freelancers – not as regular employees who work in a regular working environment.

Regular they may be, but they sure do get a lot of government benefits like SSS, Pag-ibig, Philhealth, etc.  Do not forget to mention the healthy dose of social life which home-based workers are usually deprived of.

Freelancers, in general, do not get these benefits unless they seek them out and declare themselves as an individually paying member who has to fall in line and enjoy the pains of waiting. Oh, joy.

Nevertheless, working at home isn’t all that bad. Despite the lack of social life and occasional traffic jams, we, the home-based workers, are enjoying some pretty good advantages.

I’ve discussed in my previous blog about the ESL Companies where I discussed some compelling reasons why switching to home-based jobs could be the thing for you.

Please consider the introductory rant as a bridge under the water because I will definitely make you want to work at home.




Though we really can’t get these government benefits automatically, we can certainly acquire them with sheer hard work and determination. It’s not an exaggeration when it’s coming from a person who hardly goes out in the sun.

What makes working at home even more attractive are the incentive schemes these ESL companies are dangling as bait on our faces.

The predator in us, of course, goes for the kill.

Now, I will no longer bore you with my tirade.

Here is the list of incentive schemes and the ESL Companies who creatively made them for you to work your hardest.
