US Firms to Invest $100M, Create 10,000 BPO Jobs in the Philippines

Tuesday, May 31, 2011 | Outsourcing News |

With a total of $100 million worth of investments, six US-based companies are outsourcing non-voice business process outsourcing (BPO) work to the Philippines, generating 10,000 job opportunities for Filipino workers. According to Cristino Panlilio, managing head of the Board of Investments (BoI), these American firms are new outsourcing players, though the names remain undisclosed.

Nurses needed for clinical support services

In an earlier report, BoI said AETNA, US-based insurance company, will hire Filipino nurses to provide two kinds of services: clinical support and home care for American patients. BoI Executive Director Fe Reyes-Agoncillo said there are 250 nurses who are already providing clinical support, and the firm needs a total of 500 for that service. On the other hand, 250 nurses are needed to provide home care services for patients. This number is expected to reach 1000 in the next two years.
