MANILA, Philippines – Philippine call center pioneer Sykes has made its first venture in the Metro South with the opening of its sixth facility in the country.
Sykes opened last week its newest facility at Ayala’s ATC Corporate Center in Alabang, Muntinlupa.
“We are very excited with the opening of the Alabang site. We are confident that it will play a vital role in the company’s efforts to further increase its business in the Philippines,” said Dean Van Ormer, Sykes vice president for Philippine operations.
Measuring more than 12,000 square meters, Sykes Alabang occupies five floors of the Ayala’s ATC Corporate Center.
The new facility will open more than 2,200 employment opportunities to cater to its existing and upcoming clients, most of which are top players in their respective industries.
According to Van Ormer, the Philippines remains one the best performing markets among Sykes’ global network.

Van Ormer said the new investment is part of Sykes’ desire to help boost economic activity in the Philippines as well as its commitment to the community.
He added that as the company grows its operations, it also hopes to increase its social responsibility footprint in the Philippines.
“Growing Philippine communities has always been an important mission for Sykes. As we grow our presence in the country, we make sure that we make a positive impact in the lives of Filipinos,” Van Ormer said.
Sykes is regarded as the pioneer call center in the Philippines. The company has vastly grown its business and is now employing more than 15,000 Filipinos.
