April 1, 2014, Manila, Philippines. SPi Global, the Philippines' most internationally-recognized Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) company, announced today that it has been recognized as the "BPO Employer of the Year" in the recently concluded International ICT Awards.
Organized by the Canadian Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (CanCham) and the International Business Processing Association of the Philippines (I/BPAP), the International ICT Awards Philippines, held annually, recognizes achievements and excellence in organizations and individuals based in the Philippines who have made valuable contributions to the industry and put the Philippines on the global map of the IT-BPM industry.
A first for SPi Global, the Best Employer of the Year award recognizes the outstanding employer in the IT-BPM industry that is deemed to have been the most inspirational role model for HR practices and policies for the industry and Philippine business community.
"It is a great honor to be the recipient of this most coveted award. This award is dedicated to our 19,000 employees across five continents," said Maulik Parekh, President and CEO of SPi Global.
"The award means a lot more to us for two reasons. One, it really validates our core belief at SPi Global that if you create a culture of malasakit and if you genuinely take care of your employees, your employees take care of the business. The unprecedented growth that we have experienced over the last four years is a testament that this simple principle actually works."
"We are also so excited by this award because it really celebrates the unique, rich, and proud Filipino heritage of SPi Global. SPi Global is the largest Filipino-based BPO company led by predominantly Filipino leaders."

Our Human Resources team has worked very hard on a number of important initiatives to achieve these goals," said Maulik.
This is the fourth recognition given to SPi Global by the International ICT Awards. The other three were BPO Company of the Year (2011), Multi-Sourcing BPO Company of the Year (2010) and the Non-Voice Excellence of the Year (2009).
