Talent Shortage in the Philippines' BPO Sector

For the Philippines to achieve growth targets for 2016, the Information Technology and Business Process Outsourcing (IT-BPO) sector of the Philippines has planned to increase its talent pool. In fact, Accenture, one of the major players operating in the country, said anyone who wants to be part of the outsourcing industry is welcome to apply.  

Manolito Tayag, Managing Director at Accenture Philippines and Vice-chairman of the board at the IT & Business Processing Association of the Philippines (IBPAP), said there are a lot of employment opportunities in IT-BPO because of its diversity and scale. There’s also room for career growth.

Tayag added that last year, the IT-BPO industry posted US$15.5 billion in revenues and provided 900,000 jobs.

The executive further noted that the BPO sector will continue to expand. He added that outsourcing is one of the pillars of growth of the local economy. Based on the 2016 IT-BPO roadmap, the goal is to employ 1.3 million Filipinos by 2016, and generate US$25 billion in revenues.

Accenture Philippines is the third largest Accenture branch in the world with 32,000 employees - following Accenture India and Accenture US.
