Talking practice expertise, expanding talent ecosystems through Centres of Excellence (CoEs)
Acquire BPO’s CoEs in Accounting & Finance and Software Development, are making waves with its practice management expertise, excellence in team performance management and ecosystem development. The last week has seen the CoE team expanding its talent ecosystem in the Philippines through several educational partnerships and business events.
Led by Chris Yong, General Manager for Operations, the CoE team visited Naga City, Philippines to discuss how local government can help develop its best and brightest minds. The team met with Nelson S. Legacion, City Mayor of Naga City and Reuel M. Oliver, Executive Director, Naga City Investment Board.
To also further solidify our commitment and provide more career opportunities to Filipinos, we signed partnership agreements with two prestigious universities in the Bicol region:
- University of Nueva Caceres (UNC) – A premier university that will enable us to recruit students and graduates from its different colleges including Business and Accountancy, Computer Studies, Education, etc. Acquire will be given the opportunity to participate in activities such as Career Awareness Week, job fairs, student visits to partner employer sites and mock interviews. We’ll also provide feedback to the university’s curriculum to prepare graduates for the ever-changing job market and career opportunities.
- Ateneo de Naga University (AdNU) – A private research university in Naga City recognised for its excellent instruction and formation, vigorous research and community service. Through the agreement, we will have access to graduates of AdNU’s College of Business and Accountancy, College of Computer Studies and Senior High School.
“We’re privileged to work with these premier academic institutions as we’ve always believed in outstanding Filipino talent to service the global community,” says Yong.
At about the same time, we sponsored the Filipinovation Pitch Night held in conjunction with the Philippine Start-up Week (PSW) through our sister company, SHORE Solutions. Yong, together with other industry experts, evaluated start-ups—from a tech-enabled exporting company to a reef-safe sunscreen producer. The sponsorship raised awareness for the SHORE brand, meeting emerging business leaders and attracting talents such as Full Stack Developers, Digital Business Analysts and Data Scientists.
