BPOs to Tap Candidates outside NCR

by: Sarah Joson

Tuesday, December 17, 2013 | Outsourcing News |

According to Information Technology & Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP), the hiring rate for business process outsourcing (BPO) workers in the Philippines’ National Capital Region (NCR) is expected to slow down and employment rate will increase in the provinces because of the improving business environments and infrastructure projects in those areas.

PH BPO Sector Looking for Candidates Outside Manila

IBPAP Senior Executive Director Gillian Joyce G. Virata said with the industry’s current strong position, both the government and private sector anticipate an increase in job placement activities for BPO companies that are set to operate in rural areas in three years’ time.  

She added that from the current 75:25 (NCR: Provinces) ratio of employment rate, they are looking to shift it to 60:40. In addition to that, it was found that 2007 posted the most disproportionate ratio of NCR employees and non-NCR employees at 82:18.

The shift in hiring proportions is not taking effect as fast as it should because as provinces continue to grow, NCR is developing alongside it as well.
