BPO executives voice concern over upcoming elections

An industry survey conducted by TeamAsia for Outsource2Philippines and the Business Process Outsourcing Association of the Philippines (BPA/P) indicates that BPO executives believe credible elections are a critical factor that can shape investors' perception of the country, Manila Bulletin said.

Responding to the statement: “In terms of investor and client perception of the Philippines, it is important that the national election is conducted in a peaceful, credible, and transparent matter”, 90% of executives responded “very significantly” (49%), “significantly” (31%), or “somewhat significantly” (13%), and the remaining six percent responded “somewhat” (4%) or “not at all” (2%).

Many issues currently loom over the upcoming presidential elections as an automated voting process has raised concerns regarding a lack of audit trail, possible hacker intrusion, and reliability of data transmission.

The full results of the survey will reportedly be presented at a CEO Breakfast briefing two weeks before the election. The briefing will gather outsourcing executives and possibly representatives of presidential candidates.
