The first Mr. & Ms. BPO search kicks off


The Philippines has indeed become a powerhouse when it comes to beauty pageants and modeling competitions. 

We have proven time and again that we can be on top of the game if given the chance to showcase the so-called “inner beauty,” wit and charm.

This year, an exciting search unfolds with a fresh and innovative approach, the first Mr. & Ms. BPO.  It highlights the workforce behind one of the most progressive industries in the country to date – Business Process Outsourcing – or what is commonly called BPO or contact center. 

The first contact center was established in the Philippines in 1992. After almost two decades, the Philippines has been declared the world’s BPO capital. And, last year, it was projected to have generated 1.3 million new jobs with a 17 percent annual growth.

Without a doubt, the Philippines is the standard country in the world for the BPO enterprise.

With all these breakthroughs, the search for the perfect BPO Ambassadors is equally exciting. The time has come to train the spotlight on the new breed of young men and women who can be rightfully called “mga bagong bayani ng bayan” (the new heroes of the country).

The Search for Mr. & Ms. BPO kicks off and is now accepting applicants. 

Interested parties must be 18 to 26 years old, single, Filipino citizen or with Filipino ancestry, at least 5’4” tall for female and 5’6” tall for male. They must also have proportionate physiques, possess pleasing personalities, and with good moral character. He/she must also be regular employees of a BPO company and a resident of the Philippines.

The first Mr. & Ms. BPO aims to promote excellence, leadership and camaraderie in the workplace. It will also empower the candidates to impart the right attitude at work and the drive to help in nation building. Facilitating the development of the candidates in a holistic approach is a formidable team composed of mentors for fitness and well-being, communication skills, emotional intelligence acumen and modeling, just to name a few.

The mentors are Jun Macasaet (Manhunt International 2102 winner), Jonathan Yabut (first winner of The Apprentice Asia), Jennifer Hammond (Binibining Pilipinas 2016), Ruby Manalac (Emotional Intelligence expert) and Mauro Lumba (Century Tuna Superbods 2014 and fitness enthusiast).
