Concentrix, one of the largest call center operating in Bacolod City, has adopted the government guidelines where only fully vaccinated employees are allowed to report for on-site work.
In a Facebook post, Concentirx said: “In line with the new IATF guidelines, all Concentrix employees working on-site are required to be fully vaccinated.” The policy took effect last December, the company added in its post.
With this, the company also encourages all applicants to take advantage of their local government unit’s vaccination program as soon as they can. But the company clarified that one’s vaccination status will not in any way impact his job application at Concentrix.
Concentrix is currently hiring customer service representative to support its pioneering airline account in Bacolod and offers P20,000 monthly salary and an P8K Sign-on Bonus. Qualified applicant may apply through its Facebook page, the company said in its job posting.
The Negros News Online has also reached out to other call center companies operating in Bacolod regarding its vaccination policy, but no response was provided yet as of this writing.
The Bacolod-Negros Federation for Information Technology (BNEFIT), the mother organization of call centers operating in Bacolod, said they rely on proper government agencies for health regulations.
It was late of last year when the Bacolod COVID-19 Vaccination Council (COVaC) has included employees in the call center as part of its priority for vaccination. It likewise launched a nighttime vaccination program and conducted on-site vaccination in various call center companies.
But the city has yet to confirm the total numbers of call center workers who were fully inoculated and if the industry has reached herd immunity.
