Most of the company’s facilities are also equipped with gaming areas and sleeping quarters to help employees unwind.

Additional efforts for a healthier work environment for KMC’s clients and employees have also been pushed.

It opened its doors to more cities within Metro Manila such as Quezon City, Ortigas CBD and Madaluyong. KMC’s management did not just prioritize quantity over the quality of its services. This year, the company bagged its second ISO certification and is now certified for both Quality Management (ISO9001:2015) and Information Security Management (27001:2013). Its certification boosted KMC’s credibility in inviting foreign businesses to enter the country.

Disruptive Approach and its Measurement
