Convergys, the Philippines’ largest private employer, recently staged YOUNIVERSE: Create, Celebrate in Cebu. Held at the Ayala Terraces last October 18, the event reinforced the company’s continued commitment to grow and provide local talent with limitless career opportunities. The event drew a huge crowd including jobseekers, employees, and other members of the community.
The success of YOUNIVERSE seals Convergys’ dominance in Cebu, with eight sites and 13,000 employees. According to Convergys President for Asia-Pacific Ivic Mueco, “Our extraordinary growth in Cebu over the last 12 years is due to our talented and dedicated employees who deliver excellent service for our clients’ customers. Cebu is a critical part of our Philippine operations, and we remain committed to continuing this growth and being an active partner in building our communities.”
The company also announced it is hiring 2,400 additional employees in Cebu from October to December this year, another highlight of the YOUNIVERSE event. Convergys Group Vice President of Operations Jojo Reyes said, “We are grateful for what we have achieved through the people of Cebu. We want to continue giving them the best opportunities by joining Convergys and growing in their careers; supporting global, top brands of every industry we support. Whether it is in telecommunications, technology, financial services, retail or healthcare – the choice is theirs.”
At the event, Convergys also introduced its newest brand ambassador, Alden Richards. His success story underscores hard work, determination, and perseverance as key essentials in pursuing and achieving goals. These are attributes that the company finds in its own employees.
