Lowest Cost in Philippines compared to India
I am hearing that 80 employees at the Singapore SSC impacted. Their roles/groups are being moved to the EXISTING Manila SSC. Unsure if 1) the 80 is accurate and 2) that covers every group working out of the Singapore SSC.

Still, it takes quite a lot to push leadership to change location strategy... beginning to think the trouble is far greater than we all first thought and that the company may just be in some sort of real trouble.
