Concentrix forges ahead on partnership plans with PHINMA Education
Concentrix Corporation (Nasdaq: CNXC), is a leading global provider of customer experience (CX) solutions and technology, improving business performance for some of the world’s best brands including over 100 Fortune Global 500 clients and over 115 global disruptor clients. It is also the largest private employer in the Philippines with approximately 100,000 staff.
Since partnering with PHINMA Education in 2019, Concentrix has hired 265 graduates from six out of PHINMA Education’s nine schools namely, Araullo University, Cagayan de Oro College, Southwestern University, Saint Jude College, University of Iloilo and University of Pangasinan.
The pandemic did not deter Concentrix from joining the activities in various PHINMA Education campuses. This includes participation in career talks (both physical and virtual), mock interviews, and hiring activities. Concentrix also took in interns from various schools. A total of 20 students were deployed to the Talent Acquisitions Team and did their OJT face-to-face in 2021.
As the Philippine IT-BPM industry has remained resilient during and post-pandemic, Concentrix, which continues to grow its workforce and provide jobs nationwide, is optimistic and forging ahead with various plans on partnerships.
Hazel Aguisanda, Associate Director for Academe and Industry Relations shared, “We take pride in Concentrix continuing to grow and remain committed to provide employment in the country. Moving forward, we’d like to try various activities such as an exclusive hiring program and a virtual pre-employment training for alumni. We’d also like to continue with the virtual internship program as well as career talks for students. We think that the career talks are a good venue to introduce the customer experience or commonly known as IT-BPM industry (and Concentrix) to more PHINMA Education students. We’d like them to have a better appreciation of the industry too, and hopefully get them to join us.”
