A bright career awaits you in BPO

It is estimated that more than 35 lakh people work with BPOs in India, and in 2015, the industry added 2.3 lakh new BPO jobs. The Indian Government has planned to allocate ₹498 Crore to reignite the BPO revolution leading to creation of 1.5L Jobs.

The term BPO stands for Business Process Outsourcing. Simply put, the industry involves the outsourcing of a specific business process or sub-process to a company, generally to a different country. In the last two decades, India and China have emerged as strong contenders for the massive influx of BPO work.
