Finally, a ‘home’ to the BPO industry

MANILA, Philippines – The sudden boom of business process outsourcing (BPO) industry in the country gave rise to the development of cyber parks in Metro Manila. The Philippines is a favorite destination among foreign companies, especially in PEZA-declared areas, because of the attractive tax incentives given to them by the government.

As BPO companies start flocking every city, developers see it as a timely opportunity to build office spaces or turn the whole place to an industrial-residential-commercial complex to attract both investors and professionals. Meanwhile, hundreds of highly-skilled Filipinos already filled in several positions from these companies – from telemarketers to web designers to IT programmers.

If you’re one of them, living closer to your workplace is an ultimate wish since it’s more convenient, comfortable and much safer given your irregular work schedule. Pioneer Woodlands makes you live that dream.

Its location along Pioneer Avenue corner EDSA brings you closer to Metro Manila’s top cyberparks which include a two-minute walk to Robinsons Cybergate Plaza and a train ride away to Edsa Central IT Center 2, Araneta Center Cyberpark and the Triangle Park in the Quezon City Central Business District. Whether you’re work- or home-bound, the MRT Boni station’s direct link to Pioneer Woodlands makes commuting more convenient and safer even on the “odd” hours of the night or day. Alternatively, you could also board a bus along EDSA to reach your workplace.

Meanwhile, the McKinley Hill Cyberpark in Bonifacio Global City and Eastwood City Cyberpark in Libis can also be reached in few minutes via private or public transportation.

But it’s not just work, work, work as the concept of work-live-play is very much alive in this 1.5 hectare development of Empire East Land Holdings Inc., the affordable arm of top developer Megaworld Corporation.

The contemporary architecture-inspired towers feature an executive studio room between 20.5 to 26 square meters  that’s spacious enough for a single occupant while the 30 to 50 sq.m. two-bedroom unit would comfortably fit more than two persons – perfect if you’re staying with a student sibling, a long-time buddy or with your spouse.

Automatic fire sprinklers are installed in each unit while a building administration and security office are on-site so you don’t need to worry about your home’s security while you’re working or on a vacation.

On-site amenities such as lap and wading pools, fully-equipped gymnasium and tropical garden deck offer a quick fix to a stressful day at work. Commercial establishments are also within the vicinity so if you want to shop, go bowling, watch a movie, grab few drinks every now and then or bond with your colleagues over breakfast, nothing can stop you from doing these simple yet pleasurable things in life.

The BPO industry is quite stressful where quotas, demanding clients, perfectionist bosses and unusual work schedules are part of the package. But this same industry is also generous, financially speaking.

Pioneer Woodlands is the only address in the city that understands the demands of your job, takes care of of your personal needs and gives in to your luxuries. Make the right choice today. For more information, call 810-3333 or visit www.empire-east.com. (advt)
