Naga City remains one of the preferred locations of IT-BPM companies in the Philippines. It is among the pioneering “Next Wave Cities/Digital Cities” by the IT & Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP). Top companies like IBM, Concentrix, Quantrics, and Stellar— as well as numerous firms engaged in software development, animation, game development, and healthcare information management — have made Naga their location of choice.
Highly Proficient & Dynamic Human Resource Pool
According to a Talent Deep Dive study by IBPAP, Naga’s BPO talent pool is at 22,000–assuming no further interventions from the government or the private sector to develop human resources. With approximately 8,000 direct workers in Naga BPOs now, investors are assured that adequate and competitive talent is available.
We understand that a proficient talent pool is the key to success of IT-BPM companies. As the center of education, we know that it is something we can offer. Every year, we produce almost 50,000 graduates and admit 175,000+ enrollees in the Bicol region, thanks to our leading universities and colleges.
