The inauguration of four new facilities in Cebu and Metro Manila in 2010 significantly increased IBM’s global delivery capacity in the Philippines. That investment brought thetotal of world-class facilities that IBM operates in the Philippines to 10, delivering innovative and high-value solutions to both domestic and global clients.

    Well done IBM… a person in a developed country loses his job, to be replaced by someone in the Ph. who needs to work at ungodly hours. The social effects of BPO are often overlooked. With IBM being a prime culprit, it should not be encouraged with an award for its exploitive practices.

  2. Wow.. What a very narrow-minded comment you have there.. Remove all the BPOs here then tell me where you’ll put all those jobless people..

    Oh! Great year to IBM!

  4. I agree with Migz. Think of the bright side of having BPO in the Philippines. There are positive parts in having BPO that should also be taken into consideration.
