Many Filipinos have left the nation in pursuit of employment, but the continuous growth of businesses across a wide range of sectors means that there are plenty of openings to fill at home.
In fact, the national employment rate rose to 95.5% in October 2022 from 95.0% in the previous month, according to the most recent Labor Force Survey.
BDO’s community bank, BDO Network Bank, keeps opening up new branches in the outlying areas of the province. The bank debuted with 106 branches and loan offices in 2022, creating a total of over 800 positions, including branch managers, customer service representatives, account officers, and marketing assistants.
“Giving opportunities for locals talents in different communities are not just numbers that support the expansion of BDO Network Bank. Purpose too we help the economic progress of the country,” said Jesus Antonio S. Itchon, president of BDO Network Bank (BDONB). The BDO Network Bank expects to open 100 new branches throughout several provinces in 2023. Thus, more employment opportunities should become available.
An opportunity close to home
BDO Network Bank is committed to helping local residents find employment so they can stay close to their loved ones.
As in the case of Rikko Martin Guillermo, a network management officer at BDO Network Bank in Lahug, Cebu.
“I am very thankful because I was allowed to be assigned to Lahug, Cebu City office. It helps me a lot financially, and my loved ones and I get to stay together,” said Rikko.
