Work-life balance and mutual respect core values for successful BPOs

Work Life

At the Back Room we pride ourselves on the high calibre of our BPO (business process outsourcing) staff. This starts with recruiting high quality graduate and experienced accountants and bookkeepers. We then focus on creating a vibrant team culture, maintaining good work-life balance and providing comprehensive staff training and development programs.

With the focus firmly on our off-shore staff, we talked to some of our Philippines team members about what it’s like working at The Back Room Philippines office in Clark.

Sharon Punzalan, Senior Accounting Team Leader

"I am thankful to be part of a wonderful bunch of accountants that make up The Back Room. Here bosses do not terrorise staff but instead are always appreciative and supportive! They are easy to get along with and make you feel that you are an integral part of the team."

Jerylou Venzon, Senior Accountant

It feels great to be a part of a company that knows how to value and appreciate people. Our bosses are awesome and easy to work with. I don’t feel any stress at the end of the day and I still enjoy quality time with my family after work hours. Really a work life balance.

I’m so happy to be a team member of The Back Room!

Mary Rose Santos, Junior Accountant

"There are a lot of opportunities in different sectors for a recent CPA graduate like me. The usual advice is to start getting your experience as an auditor. However, in the midst of ever-developing technology and globalization, the BPO industry started booming. Starting my career here I now realise that it’s better to deepen your accounting knowledge first before you can confidently audit financials or teach students."

"It excites me every morning to know that I will be working in the office where people are always willing to help and also willing to learn from the different tasks that we face in our jobs. Working feels light because you know that there is a family that will always be at your back. The environment is stress-free and everybody is smart and happy. I’m really glad to be part of this amazing team!"

​John Matias, Junior Accountant

What I enjoy the most about my work is the sense of camaraderie between my colleagues and the balance between work and life. Some were scared silly with the concept of the corporate world and its vicious Machiavellian craft. At least, that's how it would be with most corporate settings.

But not in The Back Room, we are a team in the purest sense. I've always liked how the seniors are always there, ready to give a helping hand.

​Reneerose Manabat, Intermediate Accountant

"Every employee seeking a job wants a company with a nice working environment, that values work-life balance and that gives them the opportunity to grow, not only as an individual but as a professional - and that's exactly what The Back Room is like."
