The BPO Industry Employees Network (BIEN), an independent network of employees working in BPO firms, wants to conduct its own investigation into the fire that killed 27 call center workers last 23 December. BIEN public relations officer Jupiter Delda said the group will conduct an investigation on the matter regardless of the conclusions given by the authorities’ own inquiries. The purpose of the investigation will be to determine who should be held accountable for the death of the victims, Delda said. BIEN expressed dismay over the non-compliance of some companies to safety standards implemented by the government.
