Skills enhancement

Though thousands of call center jobs are up for grabs, only a quarter pass the big players’ stringent screening, with most falling short in the initial stages.

To bridge the communication and customer service skills gap, the Bacolod local government aims to establish a training program in partnership with the BPO players.

The city-owned Bacolod City College is also working on revising their curriculum to include programs that will match the need of the industry.

Call center operator Transcom has expanded its initiatives, offering free pre-employment training with allowances for applicants who fall short in initial screenings.

Their 2-week program polishes participants’ soft skills, and successful graduates even receive a bonus.
