This month as part of my trip to the Philippines and Hong Kong I visited Cheque-Mates new state of the art facility in the Manilla. Their new facility in the Philippines caters for the expansion of Cheque-Mates contact centre services, IT programming, support, data entry and image processing, and other new era high-value IT and outsourcing services.
With the recent development of our new website we have partnered with Cheque-Mates to assist in providing our online ordering system for business cards and stationary services.
It was interesting to visit and experience the difference in office culture between Sydney and the Philippines. One of the differences I noticed was that staff regularly go out to dinner together to ensure a strong team bond. I also like that they conduct a staff building weekend each year at a local Manila resort.
The office environment was focused and a buzz, yet it seemed to also feel relaxed. The team were very efficient and welcoming. An additional office is also located in the northern part of the city to attract workers who live in the north. This helps in work life balance and productivity as the staff don’t need to travel more than 3 hours to get to work and back each day.
A big thankyou to the management and staff of Cheque-Mates (PH) for a very rewarding trip. Now off to Hong Kong.
