The Philippine Star’s Sheila Crisostomo (via ABS-CBNNews.com) reports that the Department of Health (DOH) and the Department of Labor and Employment will introduce the SEX program for call center agents. This is because the two government entities are reportedly "alarmed by the unhealthy lifestyle of many call center agents." SEX, in this case, stands for "stress-free, eat the right food, and exercise."
THe report further noted: "The introduction of SEX among call center agents is the objective of the iCare Healthy Lifestyle Office Caravan project that was launchedon FRuday, May 25, at the DOH office in Manila. The project will be piloted next month in 30 BPO companies in Metro Manila, covering some 200,000 call center agents." The report didn’t reveal which BPO companies have signed up for the project.
