POTOTAN, Iloilo – Consistent with its core values of giving back to the community, iQor Iloilo partners with the Rotary Club of Iloilo and the Panay Marian Rose Foundation in the recently-concluded Cervical Cancer Screening in Brgy. Purog, Pototan, Iloilo on September 2, 2019.
The initiative, which aims to spread the #IHadMine advocacy, successfully provided free testing to the women of the said local community. According to the Rotary Club of Iloilo’s Official Facebook Page, the initiative was an active response to the threat of Cervical Cancer being the second leading type of cancer among women, with over 7,000 cases and 3,000 deaths each year, according to the Department of Health. This partnership is only the first of many social activities that iQor Iloilo plans to take part of this 2019.
Going all-in on corporate social responsibility
iQor is a managed services provider of customer engagement and technology-enabled BPO solutions in Iloilo Business Park. The company has mushroomed its population to more than triple its size since its launch in 2016. Now, with 4 operational sites, 6 accounts and more than 3,000 local employees, the company is now on a steadfast commitment to amplify its responsiveness to social obligations.
“Our organization has been fortunate to bring in the best talent that Iloilo has to offer, and that’s why we’re continuing to acquire additional businesses and expanding our workforce,” says Roselle Lao, Director for Recruitment at iQor.
“We owe our success to the Ilonggo community, and now is the time to give back. We want to continue working side by side with other humanitarian organizations, such as the Rotary Club of Iloilo, to make sure we’re doing our part in providing social service to our fellow Ilonggos,” she added.
Opening doors to more jobs for Ilonggos
iQor has been actively spreading brand awareness across all channels in order to bring in a more diverse workforce including students and college graduates looking to enter the call center industry for the first time. It offers flexible job arrangements that allows young professionals to gain experience and eventually work their way up the career ladder.
