India-based digital health technology firm Optum Global Solutions announced on Friday that it has opened a new headquarter in Makati City, expanding its footprint in the Philippines with its fifth office.
The firm’s local unit, Optum Global Solutions (Philippines) Inc., said the new office is set to provide for the company’s fast-growing workforce, which numbers more than 21,000 employees to date.
“We know that Filipinos have a lot of potential. We at Optum would like to make the most out of this and encourage career growth by continuing to upskill Filipino health workers and providing our employees with a bigger and better space to expand their knowledge and nurture their talents,” said Optum Global Solutions (Philippines) Inc. Managing Director Ivic Mueco.
This way, we are able to provide the best care for our clients while opening up more growth opportunities for our employees,” she added.
Optum said the new office features a wellness area where employees can destress and relax in between work, complete with full-body massage chairs.
The new office also has a karaoke room, nursing rooms, breakout areas and coworking spaces.
Optum said it was planning to open more branches across the country and to welcome new talents over the coming months.
“We look forward to what’s in store for us in the next decade. The new space is just the beginning of more sites being opened to accommodate our growing team,” Mueco said.
The Optum executive said they were also looking to host a major international healthcare conference next year.
Back on Nov. 24, the Board of Investments (BOI) announced that it has approved the registration of a new business process outsourcing facility by Optum, making it eligible for incentives from the government.
