Home-based outsourcing opportunities will be highlighted during the annual Cebu ICT & BPM Conference, which opens today.

Wilfredo T. Sa-a Jr., conference chairman, said stakeholders area encouraging home-based outsourcing as an extension of the government-initiated “Rural Impact Outsourcing” program.

Under this program, local government units are encouraged to promote the availability of jobs from international employers online.

Sa-a noted the growing number of home-based outsourcing jobs in the country.

He said representatives of Upwork, the merger of oDesk and eLance, are arriving in Cebu to offer such opportunities. Upwork is a global online work platform based in Mountain View and San Francisco, California.

“They will speak more about the opportunities in the home-based outsourcing that is now providing jobs for stay-at-home moms, a good sideline for college students, and those that need additional income,” he said.

The two-day conference on information and communications technology (ICT) and business process management (BPM) carries the theme “Local Solutions for Global Challenge.” It is part of the month-long Cebu Business Month 2015 celebration organized by the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI).

Aside from home-based outsourcing opportunities, the conference will also discuss opportunities in startup ventures, demand for higher value outsourcing jobs offered by multinational firms, development of eCommerce in the Philippines, leveraging the use of social media analytics as well as the introduction of “computing everywhere” technology.

Sa-a said they will be giving recognition to big employers in the sector that have big contribution to the sector’s growth over the years.

“Ten companies will be awarded by the CBM 2015 and BPO-ICT 2015 organizers. This is in close coordination with the Cebu City ICT-BPO Council headed by Councilor Edu Rama,” he said.
