One of the things that most call center agents or personnel sacrifice is the quality of food. It is but normal to see someone working in a call center to have cup noodles for lunch or dinner. Sometimes, its fast food or food you can buy from a Jollijeep. Yes they may earn a lot but when you work the graveyard shift, there really are no restaurants that would be open to cater to your needs for healthy food or healthy meal options.
IBEX saw this problem and decided to address it by having a cook off for their staff and inviting some media personnel to cover the event which made it even more exciting for the staff. This event was the first of its kind for IBEX and I believe, the first of its kind in the BPO industry.
We were in for a treat and a surprise when we got there because unknown to us, we were part of the actual cook off. This was the set that was meant for my team and I. It was quite thrilling, frustating, and a learning opportunity having to cook in such a short time with people you barely know. If you think about it, it's almost the same when you are expected to perform, get along, and hit your goals when you have just transferred to a new team in the BPO world.
This is our finished product. It looks quite okay but trust me when I say there's room for improvement. What I liked about this activity is that you can really see the care that the company has for its people and coming up with healthy yet affordable meals for the staff is definitely something.
IBEX has been in the industry for 12 years now and what makes them unique is their people centered culture. They aim to create and maintain a new standard and definition of how the BPO industry works. They have the perfect match of what they need, what they want, and what they believe they need to change.
