Known as the ‘City of Smiles,’ Bacolod City is one of the leading tourist destinations in the country, famous for its colourful MassKara Festival, grand ancestral houses, marvellous historical monuments, and sumptuous local delicacies.
Apart from being a top tourist destination, Bacolod City is also becoming a new business hub in the Visayas region due to its fast-growing Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) industry and Information Technology (IT) sector. In 2013, the city was declared as a ‘Centre of Excellence’ by the Department of Science and Technology, joining the ranks of Manila and Cebu. This recognition has attracted many local and foreign investors, resulting in new development projects across the city.
RLB in the Philippines established an office in Bacolod City in 2016. As part of the company’s expansion plan in the Visayas and Mindanao regions, RLB in Bacolod is the fourth satellite office after Cebu, Davao, Cagayan de Oro, and Sta. Rosa.
