The number of posts like this one that talk about downsizing in traditional IT-BPO firms are getting more and more common every day.
Some naysayers think statements like this are just hyperbole, “saw their aggregate workforce shrink by seven the same year, highlighting a situation created by a perfect storm of tough business conditions and increasing automation.” But not me. I’m preparing for it.
And then there is this statement… that can easily be talking directly about the IT-BPOs in the Philippines. “This is a war of many battles being fought where smart service providers are aggressively implementing RPA (robotic process automation) into their own operations to drive down their delivery costs and reduce their own headcount. Hence, services providers will be hell-bent on destroying each other and the winners will be those who eventually succeed in winning more work than they lose amidst all the destruction”
I would add to this nationalistic pressures to counter the flow of globalization and “bring jobs back home”.
There are plenty of signs on the horizon that will spell doom for companies that aren’t ready for the coming storm.
