Q&a: Oscar Sañez Authentic Ezekiel Elliott Jersey , Ceo, Business Processing Association of the Philippines

SSON: Oscar, what is the purpose of BPAP Chaz Green Jersey , and how does the Association operate to achieve that purpose?
Oscar Sañez: The Business Processing Association of the Philippines was created in 2004 by members of the BPO industry, in order to present a single face of the industry to the world. Prior to this, there were several organisations that had been representing various sectors in offshoring and outsourcing in the country. It was apparent that there was a strong need to have a single industry body representing all the interests of these organisations in terms both of marketing the industry externally Byron Jones Jersey , and internally to be able to address many of the common challenges and opportunities that the industry was facing at that time. So there was an effort to consolidate several of these small organisations, and a single umbrella organisation – BPAP – was formed.
Quickly after that the BPAP board elected to create a full-time management team to do a couple of things: one, to develop and own a strategic plan to guide the growth of the industry short- and long-term; and the second was to have a fully dedicated team to be the leaders responsible for getting all the stakeholders committed to executing the strategic plan as it was developed. This is now called the “roadmap” for the industry which BPAP is leading and working on with all the stakeholders.
SSON: BPAP is running a successful scholarship program for advanced post-graduate training. Can you tell us a little about this and why it will benefit foreign companies looking to source to the country?
OS: Basically the BPAP roadmap covers three major subjects Maliek Collins Jersey , of which talent development is one. The scholarship programme falls under the initiative of ensuring talent development sustainability over the next several years, and is a programme that we have created in partnership with the government. We found there was a significant segment of the graduate pool that needed some kind of a completion course or supplementary training programme to ensure that we have a large available pool of talent, particularly in a couple of areas: English-language proficiency; and IT proficiency.
The industry tested a training programme a year ago to supplement the recruitment programme that was already in place. We had a very good experience with supplementary programmes that were being run in vocational schools as well as in independent training companies that were members of BPAP. We approached the government and asked for support so we could train a lot more young people into the programme and convert them into full-time hires. The government responded positively by providing a budget of close to $10million this year Jaylon Smith Jersey , to be able to train about 50,000 young people into the programme: of course we don’t foresee all of them passing the completion course but at least 40,000 should pass and therefore get recruited into our pool this year Xavier Woods Jersey , so if we’re able to convert them into full-time employment that is at least 40,000 additional available to us.
SSON: You’ve mentioned a degree of official support there: how closely does BPAP work with the Filipino government?
OS: We work very closely and very collaboratively with the government, particularly on three levels. One is with the educational agencies of government Jourdan Lewis Jersey , and the scholarship programme is a good example of how we have collaborated with TESDA [Technical Education & Skills Development Authority] which is the vocational institute government body coordinating group which works with us in providing supplementary training for young people here.
Another agency that we work with is the Board of Investments, which is the government’s investment-promotion group, as well as the attached agency to that which is the Philippine Economic Zone Authority: the body which supervises the IT parks for setting up BPO sites in the country. What we have done with them is work together on streamlining our investment promotion processes Chidobe Awuzie Jersey , including trade missions abroad as well as with investors who come to the Philippines, so we have a simplified communication process – a one-stop-shop mechanism if you will – so that when investors come in we have the private sector (which is BPAP) working closely with key representatives of the board of investors on our overall presentation of industry opportunities. This is done very well; we have received a lot of positive responses.
Then lastly we work with the Office of the President through the Commission of ICT. This is the government body that coordinates with various telecommunications and software companies to support the overall regional development of what the government calls the Cyber Corridor: the ICT infrastructure which links Manila with the rest of the key cities in the country. Part of what we have in the roadmap is a way in which we can accelerate the development of new sites for expansion of BPO companies outside Manila, and we’re able to work with various ICT bodies within local government councils outside Manila to prepare them for investment. These ICT councils have simplified for us the work in getting all the key stakeholders in one place; property developers Taco Charlton Jersey , the telco companies in each region, local government units and academia are able to work together to create new sites for expansion - and get investors to consider these places as potential new sites. So we have worked very closely with government on this effort and it’s given us a lot of positive gains for investment promotion.
SSON: So significant collaboration with government – but BPAP is a purely private-sector organisation?
OS: We are purely a private sector group consisting of BPO players themselves as well as key vendors in the indus Turki.
