MANILA, Philippines—The decision of US-based Wells Fargo & Co. to set up their business process outsourcing operations in the Philippines is a vote of confidence in the quality of the local workforce, according to the firm’s officials in the country.
More importantly, the banking giant plans to further expand its newly opened BPO facility in McKinley Hill Cyberpark in Taguig City to accommodate triple the number of employees it currently has.
“At present, we employ 180 team members in our current facility, but this can house as many as 450 to 500 seats,” said Wells Fargo Philippines Solutions communications manager Theresa Lariosa in an interview with the Philippine Daily Inquirer. “We have two floors in McKinley Hill for this, and we expect them to be fully occupied by yearend.”
