Rappler Talk: Should Filipino companies focus more on workplace culture?

MANILA, Philippines – It’s hard to find anyone as passionate about the economic future of the Philippines - and how entrepreneurship can shape it in both the long and short-term - than Bryce Maddock. He is the co-founder and CEO of BPO firm TaskUs.

Back in 2009, Maddock founded TaskUs in unlikely Cavite, and it’s since grown to service some of the most renown tech companies in Silicon Valley, including Uber, Groupon, and Tinder. TaskUs also has $15 million in their back pocket, courtesy of a recently closed series A funding round.

What is unique about TaskUs is that Maddock has modeled many of the company’s perks and policies after some of the top tech companies in Silicon Valley, many of which they service. The result is an employee-centric culture that increases retention and improves business results.
