I have been given an ultimatum, an option to remain working for the same company and do the same job - but on the payroll of another. You see, my current company outsources some of their work to a couple of smaller companies. There is is this technology & networking company that had decided to enter the bpo business and does work for my current company. The franchise helpline, the marketing & revenour outcalls are located here as well as agents who outcall customers when their bill is overdue or their credit has expired. There is also a section that tries to retain customers who are either on the verge of cancelling their postpaid subscription or who have already approached a franchise and given an application for cancellation. A senior manager tells me that I will be given the option to continue working for the company by joinning this bpo and doing the same work I have been doing till now. I hope that I can come back later one.
