PH BPO - ICT Compliance Codes

Together with the Department of Labor and Employment Region 3 (DOLE3), the business process outsourcing (BPO) sector and Information Communication Technology (ICT) groups formed an agreement called Voluntary Code of Good Practices. This symbolizes DOLE’s effort in preserving camaraderie among firms in Central Luzon. The code involves the TC-BPO/ICT or the Tripartite Council in BPO and ICT and includes voluntary compliance to labor standards and occupational safety and health standards.

Geraldine Panlilio, Assistant Regional Director of DOLE3, said the Voluntary Code of Good Practices covers benchmarking, policy consultations, training programs, and social dialogues to encourage cooperative growth among BPOs and ICTs.

Other objectives of the code are related to health, safety, security, and the environment. It also covers factors such as strengthening DOLE's collaboration and partnership with different government agencies for unified strategies, approaches, and programs in the advancement of BPO-ICTs, among others.

Those who support the code are expected to follow proper monitoring mechanisms through self-regulation, best practice/s recognition, and benchmarking.

Leopoldo De Jesus, DOLE’s Regional Director, said this is an initiative that aims to establish and maintain good relationships between labor and management in businesses in the area.
