New ExcelAsia site to start operations within Q1 of 2009
(Manila, Philippines, January 23, 2009) – Industry-leading human resource solutions firm ExcelAsia forges a new partnership with premiere property developer Megaworld Corporation to open a new recruitment and training site in Eastwood City Cyberpark. ExcelAsia’s newest site will be set up at the e-Commerce Plaza in Eastwood City, Bagumbayan, Quezon City and is scheduled to begin operations in the first quarter of this year.
According to Megaworld Corporation First Vice President for Business Development and Leasing Jericho Go, 50% to 60% of companies leasing Megaworld office buildings in Eastwood City are from the business process outsourcing (BPO) and IT-related industries. At present, more than half of approximately 60 companies operating in the area are engaged in the BPO and IT sectors. Having achieved critical mass, existing and prospective locators have flagged inquiries about replenishing their labor pool as Eastwood’s business hub continues to grow with the industry.
Megaworld initially approached ExcelAsia about their new site in Eastwood City based on positive feedback from their current BPO partners. Current and potential locators expressed satisfaction and confidence to Megaworld about the way ExcelAsia services and meets their BPO requirements.
“BPOs and IT-related industries need to refresh, replenish, and retain talent to continue to drive growth and competitiveness in their industry,” Go said. “We noticed that 30% to 40% of the available workforce for the BPO and IT businesses are classified as near-hires. ExcelAsia has consistently shown that it is equipped with the expertise to hire qualified applicants as well as train near-hires in preparation for a BPO or IT industry career.”
ExcelAsia President Rita Trillo-Ugarte emphasized that they will utilize their successful dedicated site strategy in Eastwood to meet and exceed their clients’ expectations. “We’ll be delegating account managers and recruitment staff to ensure that crucial ramp-up periods are met for our clients,” she said. “This will help us tailor-fit our strategies based on the needs of our clients and their customers.”
According to Trillo-Ugarte, around six (6) training rooms will be available in the new Eastwood site. Monthly trainees are also expected to increase from 700 to 1,500 in all of their ExcelAsia sites nationwide.
“I believe this new partnership with Megaworld Corporation will serve as a strong strategy to further business development, as both Megaworld and ExcelAsia are committed to providing quality and high-value solutions among our growing roster of clients,” Trillo-Ugarte said.
