STARTEK INC., a multinational business process outsourcing (BPO) company, opened a new office facility in Frontera Verde in Pasig City to provide the best possible work environment for its employees as part of its expansion program in the country.
Listed on the New York Stock Exchange, Startek already has a facility in Makati City as well as the recently inaugurated contact center in Iloilo City and a center in Angeles City.
“We consider the Philippines one of our prime Startek global locations, and we are committed to investing the resources necessary to provide our employees with an inviting, comfortable environment,” said Chad Carlson, president and CEO of Startek.
“The new Startek Frontera Verde site signals what the future holds for the company – bright and forward-thinking,” Carlson said.
Comprised of four floors, the Startek Frontera Verde office building has dedicated the first floor as a recruitment and training area with the rest of the floors as production areas.
Startek said it puts high value on offering employees a “fun environment, room for career growth, and sense of stability.” The new location boasts of functional yet comfortable working space and modern meeting and huddle rooms.
In designing the new office space, the company also took into consideration the recreational needs of its employees. Startek Frontera Verde has a themed pantry per floor, gym, sleeping quarters, pocket garden and a multi-purpose roof deck.
“We believe that a workspace can create a positive impact on a person’s productivity, inspire teamwork and influence results,” Tonichi Achurra, VP of operations said. “What makes us different from the other BPO companies is that we look for employees who want to feel a sense of belonging. For us, it is not just a job but a place where they can feel accepted.”
