Human resource professional and a philosopher-blogger on the side


- Advertisment -

For 11 years, Dubai-based HR professional Kieth Walter Ayuso was under the seminary formation to finish philosophy and develop personal growth. After leaving the seminary, he was involved in the HR team both in the Philippines and the UAE. 

Moving to UAE in 2014, his first professional experience was in the pre-opening team of a 5-star hotel in Dubai Media Production Zone, and there, he enjoyed building HR policies, getting his hand on the UAE law and other HR foundation as a start-up team. 

Eight months after, he took a big leap and worked as an HR officer at the prestigious Emaar. He was in charge of the HR marketing of the group, as well as part of the onboarding and offboarding team of Business Shared Services. 

“I have always been in the HR team right after finishing philosophy at the seminary,” he said. 

“HR is very close to my heart simply because of the opportunity to work with different orientations and backgrounds. With the UAE being the melting pot of cultures, collaborating with different ideas and practices are equally interesting and exciting,” he further added. 

On the sideline, Ayuso is also a popular blogger and photographer. He was recognized by a UAE -based publication to be the first Filipino Philosopher-Blogger in the country with his stories and discourses at Moving to the emirate has been seamless in terms of his passion as he was able to hone his skills in photography by collaborating with different photography organizations and brands, particularly Fujifilm Middle East. 

“It’s a whole different flavor when you work overseas. There are language barriers, cultural indifferences, and all other adversities. However, all these are of greater learning and development both professionally and personally. I had seen myself evolved in so many aspects by simply collaborating with different nationalities,” he said. 

This, according to him, does not only open up himself to other perspectives and practices, but it helped him accept things to which he was not fully accustomed with. 

Advice to kababayans

“You are always in control of your future,” he said adding that one thing that he notices with his kababayans abroad is the ability to save up and be liquid with their finances. 

Ayuso further advised his fellowmen to invest their resources wisely and be practical with their means. 

“Since it’s relatively easier for us to invest here, we don’t need to always be on top of the latest gadgets, brands, and trends, and trends just to keep up–and most especially if we purchase them on an installment basis,” he said adding that this habit will significantly pull down one’s saving patterns. 

“Do not forget to enjoy the simple things we have abroad. Enjoy the many privileges we have as an OFW. Always push your boundaries to things that will make your heart happy. More than anything else, your mental disposition is as important as your physical health. Stay happy, inside and out,” he further added.
