Outsourcing firm Teleperformance Philippines launched on Monday a mobile workstation that simulates a fully enabled work-from-home (WFH) experience. 

The Cloud Campus Jeepney, parked at the Sunlife Amphitheater in Bonifacio Global City (BGC), is a solar-electric hybrid vehicle equipped with a cloud connection.

“This platform will help us really promote our WFH environment, our capabilities, and ensure we have deliverable frameworks for our customers to sustain and be reliable,” said Eduardo Punzalan, Jr., Teleperformance Philippines vice president for facilities and administration, at the launch.

The jeepney, stationed in BGC till March 6, is part of Cloud Campus Solutions, a global operating model launched last year to enable remote work. 

Other existing hubs in the Philippines are located at Teleperformance Aura and Fairview, which are the operational command centers of the virtual teams.

The business process outsourcing sector helped keep the economy afloat, according to Labor Secretary Silvestre H. Bello III.

“IT-BPM [Information Technology and Business Process Management] firms were among the sectors that continued doing business due to the digital nature of your work, hence employment generation remained high,” he said in his speech. 

Citing data from the labor department, he shared that IT-BPM jobs such as call center, customer service, and sales representatives were among the top 10 employment opportunities nationwide during the pandemic. — Brontë H. Lacsamana
