How the Philippines beat India in call centres
IT’S midnight in Manila, and the capital is just waking up to the start of another working day. At the Worldwide Corporate Centre office block, thousands of young Filipinos are crowding into endless open-plan offices. Once seated, they quickly start answering the questions and calming the frustrations of vexed American consumers beginning their own day on the other side of the Pacific Ocean.
These Filipinos are call-centre workers. To outsiders it is hardly a glamorous profession, yet despite the antisocial hours these men and women have every reason to be as well-motivated and cheerful as they seem. They are well paid and know that they work at the heart of their country’s most dynamic industry.
The main reason for the success of the Philippine call centres is that workers speak English with a neutral accent and are familiar with American idioms—which is exactly what their American customers want. Of these, many have taken to complaining bitterly about Indian accents (which no amount of “voice neutralisation” coaching seems to have overcome). As a result, the Indian firms themselves have been helping to move jobs to the Philippines by setting up call centres in Manila and other parts of the country. Infosys and Wipro, as well as scores of other Indian firms, now have substantial operations there. And they aren’t drawn to Manila by cheap labour. Wages in the Philippines are slightly higher than in India since the Filipino accent commands a premium.

Hi. I'm Ribyjohn. I will be starting my work this Monday, July 9.
I will work for Sitel Philippines for a Tech Support account. This will be my 4th call center since I started since March 2011. Well those previous centers are okay for me, its just that I'm so fuc*king [B] lazy and irresponsible [\B] on my work.
I just hope that this time around, I will enjoy my work and be able to be productive. I'm so frustrated when someone tag me as call center hopper. :'(
I'll try to update my Sitel life here and hope to hear from you as well. :-)
