In a historic first, on August 18 Concentrix Philippines simultaneously launched its 3 newest sites nationwide: Giga Tower in Bridgetowne, Quezon City, One Montage in Cebu Business Park, and Davao Finance Center in Davao Park District. Concentrix staff, leaders, partners from government and private sector also attended the launch and tour of facilities in their respective cities. Concentrix President and CEO Chris Caldwell was also present.
The launch event called “One Concentrix Nation” highlights the remarkable growth of Concentrix and the company’s investments to bring career opportunities throughout the country. The 3 sites’ locations correspond to the 3 major island groups of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao respectively.
The expansions also reinforce Concentrix’s position as the nation’s undisputed largest private employer with approximately 100,000 staff, and brings the company’s total sites in the Philippines o 50, located in 20 cities for its brick-and-mortar operations.
According to Amit Jagga, SVP and Country Leader for Concentrix Philippines, “Our journey in the Philippines has always been about growth. In 16 years, we have grown from a handful of people to a 100,000-strong team today. Launching 3 new sites altogether is a big growth milestone representing close to 5,700 combined staff in these locations and the opportunity to grow further. It’s visible proof of our continued growth, and a tangible message of our continued commitment to the Philippines: we’ll continue to invest in providing meaningful career opportunities to as many talented Filipinos as possible. Further, the multi-site launch being nationwide also demonstrated that when we expand our presence to more people and places, it translates to employment and other economic opportunities also spreading to those communities.”
All 3 sites: Giga, One Montage Cebu, and Davao Finance Center operate 24/7, and have close to 30,000 sq.m of space in combined total. Staff support clients in industries such as Communications, Financial Services, Retail, Technology, Travel, Healthcare, and Content Moderation. Giga and Montage both have Recruitment Hubs for the high volume of jobseekers in Quezon City and Cebu City.
Concentrix site investments include the work environment and overall staff experience. Concentrix VP of People Solutions in the Philippines Hazel Banas shares “Staff experience is top priority for Concentrix so it’s important to consider what’s meaningful and relevant to their needs and situations. Considering workplace and work environment – how safe, conducive, well-equipped with resources and well-supported the staff are, how we facilitate ease and access to information or services they need, how we reward and engage them –- these are all important. We also want to provide state-of-the-art facilities with flexibility in mind. Our spaces are deliberately designed for the perfect blend of functionality, productivity, and creativity. We also take staff feedback on what they need and want, so no two sites are necessarily the same. For example, you can have 2 sites with a gym, and another one without. It depends on the preference of local teams.”
With a solid commitment to continued growth and investment in the country and its talent, Country Leader Amit Jagga is excited about the positive impact it will continue to make, He says “We anticipate the growth rate to continue being significant levels in line with the growth in business that clients give to us, including new client logos, all of which increase our hiring requirements. So we’re very excited to share about our sites and for more people to join Concentrix. If this trajectory continues leading up to 2023, and while we cannot give forward-looking statements as a publicly traded company, if we get close to double-digit % growth from the 100K scale we have today, that’s anywhere from 8,000 to 10,000 staff net growth that we can expect.”
