MANILA - Dell EMC said Friday it was looking to hire Filipinos who can navigate the data economy, as it sought to increase its workforce in the country.
Dell acquired EMC in 2016, expanding its computer business to data storage and enabling it to leverage itself as a one stop shop for cloud and other digital services.
"We need more team members who understand how the data economy is gonna work, how that be used to create opportunities for customers, what sort of risk it entails, and how to manage that," said Amit Midha, Dell EMC president for commercial business in the Asia Pacific and Japan.
"We are hiring more and we remain quite confident in our investment," Midha said in an exclusive interview with ANC's The Boss.
Midha refused to disclose the current size of Dell EMC's workforce in the Philippines, which is among the 3 largest in Southeast Asia. The Manila office occupies 2 floors in a Bonifacio Global City high rise.
Midha said Filipinos should make sure their skills match the demands of jobs in the digital space.
"We are in the data economy. The infrastructure gap is really the talent gap," he said.
