Power woes hit Davao’s home-based IT workers

Home-based online IT workers in Davao are experiencing power interruptions that have already affected their work. To address the concerns of the home-based IT workers, the Davao Light and Power Company is holding a power forum on 9 March. The forum is specifically for home-based online workers in its franchise area. Power interruptions continue to persist in Davao, which could affect the city’s developing outsourcing industry. Davao has been ranked 66th among the top 100 outsourcing destinations in the world. Infrastructure, including steady and reliable power sources, is one of the top considerations for BPO companies in picking a new location.
