IBEX Global is not only known as a leader in innovative and disruptive technology, but also as the fastest growing BPO company that goes the extra mile to give its employees benefits to help attain work-life balance.
The company believes that its 4,000 strong employees deserve more and to show that, they’ve created an environment for their people to be able to attain sustainable healthy lifestyle habits. Knowing health complications like eczema, diabetes, and asthma are linked to bad eating habits, IBEX Global hired a noted executive chef, Joey Cebrero, to create hearty, healthy, and delicious meals for its employees.
Recently, IBEX Global staged a fun “Cook-off” event, giving the media access to its world where having a healthy diet and lifestyle doesn’t mean slaving over a stove all day or sacrificing flavorful meals for bland dishes.
At the start of the event, Chef Joey Cebrero shared the recipe for a healthier version of Chicken Adobo, saying: “In this fast-paced world that we live in, people often say they don’t have time to cook. Mostly it is because people are intimidated by the idea so I wanted to showcase something safe and comforting. But just as we do it here at IBEX Global, with a little fun and ingenuity, we’ll find ways to make it exciting together.”
The media was split into three teams and were both aided by professional sous chefs when creating their dishes. With a dash of friendly ribbing, and an ounce of competitive spirit, each team presented their creative and innovative dishes to the panel of judges namely Chef Joey Cebrero, Michael Guerra and Robbie Burba of IBEX Global, who found that adobo is best served when cooked with passion and dedication.
“I’ve witnessed how this job can be tough on health. I’ve seen and heard people experiencing health issues that are easily prevented through proper exercise and diet. From there, we came up with an advocacy to help our employees stay fit at the workplace,” said Robbie Burba, Senior HR Director of IBEX Global. “We specifically handpicked our executive chef Joey Cebrero to curate a great selection of gourmet meals that support this push towards a healthier lifestyle,” he adds.
“Food always brings people together. So what we did was to spice things up and add a gourmet angle to our food story – this way, our employees can enjoy the scrumptious food and our chefs can be the ones to make sure that their happiness doesn’t cost them their health,” says Michael Guerra, Site Director of IBEX Global. “In our own unique way, we are creating an environment where our team’s well-being is always at the forefront of everything we do.”
For more than 12 years, IBEX Global has created a new definition of how the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) industry works. They have the perfect mix of what they need, what they want, and how they want to impact the industry and its strong workforce. The company’s unique approach to career and personal growth shows its commitment to the well-being of their employees. Through its numerous engagement activities like IBEX Idol and VIP Getaway that spice up employee incentive programs, to their health-related programs like “no to smoking” campaign to having their own gourmet selection of healthy meals and snacks (with their own executive chef as the curator), IBEX Global continuously proves that it goes beyond the norms to integrate work-life balance into the mix. And this cook-off was no different.
The focus is not only on the day-to-day operations, but on the welfare of the workforce that drives it. Why? Simple. This company believes that everyone deserves more.
