600 Workers Needed in IT Company

Date Posted: Aug 18, 2010

Cognizant, Inc. world’s leading information technology, consulting and business process outsourcing (BPO) company has recently opened a global delivery center in Manila.

The expansion made by Congizent will open more job opportunities to Filipinos. The firm which currently employs 200 people will hire more manpower as much as 600 qualified professionals in various fields.

Cognizant president and managing director of Global delivery, R. Chandrasekaran said the company’s rapid business growth in the country made them decide to expand its operations.

“Within months of opening our Manila center in October 2009, we have steadily grown our presence and investment in the Philippine capital, and have moved into a larger facility,” Chandrasekaran said.

“Our Manila center will continue to strengthen our integrated global delivery capabilities, as our investments in new global, regional, and local delivery centers help our clients harness specialized talent globally in order to meet their requirements and risk preferences, as well as provide business continuity,” Chandrasekaran said in an emailed statement.

“We are committed to working closely with the academic community in the Philippines to develop talent across our full range of services,” he added.

Oscar Sañez, president and chief executive officer of the Business Processing Association of the Philippines, welcomed Cognizant’s expansion in the Philippines.

“As one of the world’s fastest growing consulting, technology, and BPO/KPO companies, Cognizant’s deep insight into global best practices earned through its exposure to Global 2000 companies and a footprint spanning five continents will help the IT and BPO/KPO industry in the Philippines increase its competitiveness and define newer benchmarks,” Sañez said .

President Benigno Aquino III also commended Cognizant for providing job opportunities for Filipino professionals. He said that the company’s expansion affirms the surging demand for global BPO services currently dominating the business arena.

“It is gratifying to note that you have again placed your confidence upon us by allotting about six hundred (600) job posts specifically for Filipinos. I know that our people are prepared to take on the global challenges that come with the demands of the industry. Together, we shall work hand in hand towards world class excellence,” Aquino said in a separate text message.

The Cognizant’s Manila office, which provides high-end operational and contact center business process services to clients worldwide, also runs on Cognizant 2.0, a Web 2.0-based platform that allows the company’s associates worldwide to collaborate and deliver important time-to-market, cost and transformational value to its clients.
