Offshore Call Center Outsourcing is a big topic as of late.
Maybe because the issue has come up in the 2012 US Presidential Election. Basically, the United States is in need of jobs growth and many believe that US Companies that engage in Offshore Call Center Outsourcing or sending tasks to BPO’s should be penalized.
Indian has enjoyed substantial growth in the past primarily due to United Kingdom and the United States offshoring but as of late the Philippine BPO industry has overtaken Indian in total jobs outsourced. This is not surprising since the Philippines culture is more affinity to the US market.
The future of the BPO industry, US jobs and Call Center Outsourcing, is not know but I bet opinions are plenty.
I’m curious to find out what you think? Leave a comment to express your opinion.
Recently I came across this article that has a member of the US Senate trying to make an impact and reverse the offshoring of jobs:
Casey To Introduce Bill To Protect Call Center Jobs - U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., announced Wednesday that he would introduce legislation to prohibit call center companies that ship U.S. jobs overseas from receiving federal money.
I recommend you read this article and let me know what you think. The article will open in a new window.
