Staff Virtual, a leading provider of outsourcing to the Philippines, is pleased to announce that today, it has moved its head to Unit 1101, 11th Floor, Pearl Bank Centre Building, Salcedo Village, Makati City, Philippines. The new 229 square meter facility will feature state-of-the-art, redundant phone and Internet that will enable our employees to serve our clients better, and more reliably. For the past two years Staff Virtual has been headquartered in PB Com Tower. Today the company moves to the heart of the city, strategically located closer to the nexus of the city’s main public transport hubs.
Staff Virtual’s office is located in Makati City, the New York City of the Philippines. In this fast-paced hub of companies old and new, Staff Virtual's space stands out as a relaxed, healthy and comfortable atmosphere that brings out the best in our employees. Many outsourcing providers have to contend with high attrition rates due in no small part to environmental factors: frequent sick leaves caused by poor diet, a sedentary lifestyle and viruses spread through the air conditioning system; high stress levels due to frequent shift changes and late night hours. Business process outsourcing (BPO) companies have to spend increasing amounts on incentives and rewards programs to retain employees, driving up costs. Staff Virtual recognizes and gets to the root of these issues from the start.
Here are a few things you might see at the the Staff Virtual office:
Redundant high-speed Internet
Redundant phone systems
Surveillance and security systems
Company-wide recycling program
Green cleaning products

In the future, the office will feature other amenities including; Lava lamps, bean bags, and large inflatable balls, shared DVD library, books, and magazines, a flat screen TV and surround sound system, assorted video games for relaxation and fun, and a Karaoke machine.
The office will also feature an honor bar, where employees can get healthy snacks and drinks around the clock. Employees take what they need and pay using the honor system. Along with redundancies within the office, the building itself will feature 24/7 generator backup in the event of power outages or blackouts in Manila, which occasionally occur during severe storms.
“It makes a lot of sense to move into this bigger office. The company has grown by 40% in the last three months, and we need more space,” says Ike Stranathan, the Founder and President of Staff Virtual.
Just a couple of weeks after the move, Staff Virtual also started a new season of its employee wellness programme. “The need for healthy employees who understand nutrition and fitness has never been greater, we want our employees feeling their best so that they can best serve our clients partners,” says Roger Cox, the CEO of Staff Virtual. Cox continued by saying "The opening of our new large office in Makati reaffirms our commitment to delivering strong support and the best of industry practices to our clients here in North America. Our office will help us meet the increasing demand from organizations looking to make the most of the Philippines flexible, cost effective and highly skilled labor pool.”
