Power management company Eaton today announced the opening of a human resource (HR) services centre in the Philippines. The centre will provide HR services to Eaton’s manufacturing, administrative and sales facilities in Asia Pacific and globally.
Located at the First Philippine Industrial Park, the facility was officially opened by Lisa Shen, director, Human Resources Services, Asia Pacific and representatives from government, local organizations and Eaton leadership in Asia Pacific.
“We’re pleased to continue to expand our presence in the Philippines, which provides an efficient, productive environment for the continuing growth of our organization,” said Shen. “The Philippines was chosen as an ideal location to support our global HR activities given the availability of highly qualified HR talent, its existing capabilities of a very competitive shared services industry serving global organizations, and the language capabilities to support operations in different regions.”

The shared services model will result in a more integrated and improved employee experience, reduced costs, improved operational efficiency, and access to innovative solutions.
