Grundfos IS Support & Operations Center Philippines hosted the NBCP ICT Committee on June 2, 2016 to showcase its NBCP Outstanding Employer of the Year-awarded operation in Ortigas.
Grundfos IS established its Manila office in January 2014 to provide internal IT-activities for the Grundfos Group. Among the reasons for choosing Manila were the strong governmental support through PEZA, a long standing focus on the BPO sector, as well as the stable economy in the country. Mr. Hans Ole Steensig, Grundfos IS General Manager also enumerated the local talent base, English language skills, service-mindedness and hospitality of the Filipino people, and the strong family culture, which aligns very well with the culture of Grundfos, as strong factors in the site selection of the service center.
With ca. 150 employees currently on board, Grundfos IS has a special ‘Focus on People’. Ms. Suzanne Comagon, Human Resources Manager elaborated the numerous programs supporting employee well-being and positive work-life balance, such as the One Grundfos Strategy and the learning and development program, all leading to impressive results in the annual employee satisfaction, motivation, and loyalty survey.
The NBCP ICT committee will continue the site visits as part of its program to nurture exchange of best practices among committee members. Nokia NetworkLabs will be the next one to host the meeting at their Silicon Valley-like office at the UP Technohub in Quezon City.
