After its recent inauguration in Alabang, Muntinlupa Philippines, the leader in online payment solutions, PayPal targets to add 1,000 more employees by the end of 2020.
Reportedly, the company previously declared that they will be adding 1,000 new hires towards the end of 2021. However, they decidedly made the amendments ahead of its slated schedule due to the growing demand and the potential in local talent.
“Filipinos are renowned not only for their outstanding command of the English language, but also for their customer service expertise, as well as their resourcefulness, hard work and openness to new experiences,” senior director of PayPal customer services, John Nicholls stated.
“At PayPal, we embrace passion and diversity as part of our culture and Filipino talents make for the perfect fit when it comes to the values we strive for as a global company,” Nicholls continued.
Currently, the payment solutions company has 700 people in their Alabang operations center.
Accordingly, PayPal is looking to fill roles in voice and non-voice processes, risk management and customer support for them to cater to English speaking clients around the world, as per Inquirer.
Reportedly, PayPal stated that their Alabang office is “designed for millennials,” since the Philippine workforce is mainly constituted by that age demographic.
“Our facilities are meant to embody PayPal’s work-culture philosophy, which prizes innovation, collaboration, inclusion and wellness. By nurturing these values in our office space, we provide our teams with the very best in coaching, mentorship and leadership, so they grow personally and professionally in their careers,” Nicholls said.
