Afni opens newest recruitment hub in the Philippines

Posted September 07, 2021 in Afni News

QUEZON CITY – In its bid to continue building a culture and creating opportunities that attract and retain the best and brightest, U.S.-based business process outsourcing (BPO) company Afni officially opened its new recruitment hub in the Philippines August 2.

The recruitment hub had started accommodating applicants on August 3. It will also remain open during the enhanced community quarantine from August 6 to 20 for applicants who cannot process their applications online. Strict health and safety protocols are in place, and applicants must follow such measures.

The hub, located at the upper ground floor of One Felicity Center (OFC) along Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City, is another proof of Afni's commitment to business growth in the Philippines despite the pandemic and serves as another milestone for the company following the opening of its newest site at SM City Fairview in October 2020.

Attracting the best and the brightest

Afni's Vice President for Philippine Operations Khalid Khursheed shared that when Afni Philippines first opened in Bonifacio Global City in 2012, the company had to do its recruitment activities inside an administrative and facilities while the job offerings were held in a training room.

When Afni moved to Diliman Commercial Center (QCC), Quezon City in 2013, the second and third floors of the building were used for recruitment activities. But the company was expanding rapidly, so a dedicated recruitment space at its QCC site was opened in 2015.

Khursheed said the OFC recruitment hub – a more inviting space for prospective employees – was opened in continuous pursuit of attracting, engaging, and retaining young, passionate talents in the BPO sector.

"The opening of our recruitment hub is a testament to the success and growth Afni continues to have. Throughout the challenges of the past year, we continue to bring new jobs to the area and are doing our part to help the local economy stabilize and rebound," Khursheed said in a statement. 

The 2-floor recruitment hub features the following: a reception area with built-in pads for applicants to log in their information; six interview rooms each equipped with computer/TV and phone; office area with designated rooms for Afni's Recruitment team leadership and members; a conference room; and a job offer and recreation space. The Afni history mural will also greet applicants as they enter the hub, and they can wait for their turn in the café/pantry at the hub's first floor.

Afni Philippines, Inc. Talent Acquisition Director Anna Pinaroc said the opening of the recruitment hub "is a product of teamwork, strong partnership across departments, and a testament to Afni's continuous growth."
