StarTek Invests $10M in the Philippines

Monday, February 23, 2009

There's a new call center in town and with the economic pressures in the US and around the world its wonderful to hear that the Philippines seems oblivious to problems because investments like these are still coming. StarTek Inc. is putting up a 10 million dollar facility to seat about 1,000 people for their new call center which is the first facility outside of North America.

StarTek initially had only 400 seats and plan to expand by the end of the year with new branches within Metro Manila and nearby provinces. They are also eying Cebu City to be their branch number 2 since they needed to go out of Makati where manpower seems to be too high of a demand because they also have other call centers nearby. They should have at least tried Eastwood City first since there are some who are bankrupt but kept on operating under a different name. If you are from this place you know who I am referring to. They should pay off their debt and give separation pay to all their employees though before they seek another job elsewhere. Good thing StarTek doesn't have that much horror stories to tell. Good luck!
