Talents in the country's business process outsourcing industry were urged to move up to the higher value chain to meet abrupt changes in the sector.
SAP Asia Pacific Human Capital Management Solution Vice President Raj Sundarason told reporters in an interview during the Asia CEO Forum Wednesday that the country should now address concerns of how to move local BPO industry in the higher value chain.
“The Philippine market must start moving up in the value chain because if somebody is able to change the BPO later a little bit, you (are) going to have a challenge. So I believe now is the time to see BPO in a different view,” Sundarason said.
