BPO Yield Higher Contribution to the Philippine Economy


I have written about the BPO industry in the Philippines several times in the past. Its contribution to the economy and how young people were given an opportunity to find jobs because of BPO.
No one could deny the fact that Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) is growing rapidly especially here in our country. Technological and communication advances help realize the wide-spread adoption of BPO, due to their quality and cost improvements. Technology applied in BPO through the adopted software, applications and platform has a substantial long-term impact on the whole process, affecting the quality, cost and associated risks of the operation of outsourced activities.

Technology enhances the value of BPO from perspectives of enabling and leveraging the values of
  • standardization
  • automation
  • integration
  • flexibility 
  • and innovation. 
 
Here is a quality framework of a BPO service including seven quality dimensions:
  1. reliability
  2. tangibility
  3. conformance
  4. responsiveness
  5. flexibility
  6. assurance
  7. and security
Four quality enablers: 
  1. standardization
  2. integration 
  3. automation
  4. innovation.
$11B / 638K employees = $17,241 injected into the Philippine economy per employee.
$24B / 8M OFWs = $3,000 remitted into the Philippine economy per OFW.

It is clear that BPO gives much much higher contribution per person than OFWs.

As Pinoys, we should focus on our strengths which is not always finding greener pastures abroad. BPO jobs abound in the Philippines today.


Moi Favorito Croissant


Yes! Croissant is one of my favorite breakfast. When we were in Thailand I always devour this meal because it's not only cheap but also very delicious.

Croissants are made of a leavened variant of puff pastry. The yeast dough is layered with butter, rolled and folded several times in succession, then rolled into a sheet, a technique called laminating.

Crescent-shaped food breads have been made since the Middle Ages, and crescent-shaped cakes (imitating the often-worshiped Moon) possibly since classical times, The croissant in its current form was invented in Vienna after the victory of the Holy League against the Turks in 1683.

Croissants have long been a staple of French bakeries and p√Ętisseries. In the late 1970s, the development of factory-made, frozen, pre-formed but unbaked dough made them into a fast food which can be freshly baked by unskilled labor. Indeed, the croissanterie was explicitly a French response to American-style fast food,and today 30–40% of the croissants sold in French bakeries and patisseries are frozen.

This innovation, along with the croissant's versatility and distinctive shape, has made it the best-known type of French pastry in much of the world. Today, the croissant remains popular in a continental breakfast.

Luckily, I again had a chance to eat my favorite croissant at the Unilever's event. Unilever donated Php 400,000 to the United Nation's World Food Program. See entry here. Php 400,000 means food to 40,000 children in Mindanao. You see each and everyone of us should realize how lucky we were. We don't have to beg for food or shelter.
Anyway, back to my favorite Croissant. At the registration table of Unilever they asked us to filled up a form as to what type of bread do we like, they further instructed us to indicate toppings and other ingredients and ornaments that we like in our sandwich. I put croissant as my bread of choice with ham, cheese, tomato, lettuce, catsup and mayonnaise.

They then asked us to pick one paper from the fish bowl. We had to prepare a sandwich for the name indicated on the paper. A gentleman journalist prepared my sandwich. I, on the other had prepared the preferred sandwich of a Manila Times reporter. It was fun, because we get to meet other participants in the event and we had so much fun posing for photos when we presented the sandwich to our lucky pick.

I am so happy :-) I love Croissant!
