Information Communications Technology (ICT) Davao President Lizabel Holganza foresees a 30-percent increase in job opportunities in the business process outsourcing (BPO) sector this year specifically within the region as more BPO firms are believed to have expansion plans.
According to Bert Barriga, Executive Vice-president at ICT-Davao, nearly 16,000 jobs were produced by BPOs based in Davao last year, which clearly has exceeded half of the 30,000 jobs targeted by ICT-Davao for 2015.
Moreover, he added that they are doing their best to provide BPO training for the region’s local talent.
Meanwhile, a Smarter Countryside campaign, which is aimed to provide more training programs across different outsourcing processes and services, is scheduled to be launched next month in the city. There’s also an on-going Industry-based Training for Work Scholarship Program (I-TWSP) spearheaded by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda).
