EY expands global footprint, opens new unit in PH
EY, one of the big four professional services organizations, has started its Global Delivery Network (GDN) operations in the Philippines.
This is the fifth GDN location, after Argentina, China, India and Poland.
The GDN plays an important role in EY’s globalization strategy by leveraging diverse talent capabilities and developing new competencies across the globe to strengthen its commitment to deliver quality service to its clients.
In its initial phase, the GDN location in the Philippines will offer Advisory Services, including Performance Improvement, Risk, and Advisory Support capabilities. It will also provide IT Services, Business and Creative Services focused on Administrative Support and Creative Design, as well as Knowledge Services comprising Market and Competitive Trend Analysis along with Industry Analytics.
GDN Philippines was launched in collaboration with SGV & Co., an EY member firm since 2002.
SGV chair and managing partner Vic Noel said, “We believe it is crucial to adapt to the rapidly evolving global business environment. By establishing a GDN location in the Philippines, SGV and EY will provide more employment opportunities while leveraging Filipino talent to strengthen EY’s global service offerings. Operating a center in a Metro like Manila means increased visibility for Filipino professionals who meet global standards. It also recognizes their competencies honed by SGV’s rigorous training, culture and values and sustained by EY’s global network and innovative methodologies.”
Speaking at the launch, Tim Eddy, EY’s Business Enablement Shared Services and Global Talent Hubs Leader, shared, “Our new GDN Location in the Philippines strengthens our Global Delivery Network and allows us to enhance our delivery capability to our clients across Asia Pacific and the rest of the world. We will now have access to a larger pool of talent, which will give our teams more power, speed and flexibility to develop and execute market strategies that will help us win in the market.”
