Outsourcing Your Dream Workforce in the Philippines

Managing a business can be tiring at times, especially if you don’t have partners and workers who are willing to give their best in their assigned roles. The thing is, we can always look and opt for a better candidate for the job, but we can’t just spend money right away to get the best people. Entrepreneurs have to think strategically, especially if they are just starting. We always want higher quality at a lower cost.

The Filipino Culture As An Advantage

English as the universal language? Easy-peasy. English has been engraved in the Philippine education system since we were colonized by the Americans in the 1900s. 

In daily Filipino routine, the English language has always been a part of the conversation because it is the norm. Filipinos have been learning the language since the earliest level in school up to college. If we have no trouble communicating in this language, what will make you think that we will have difficulty communicating with you?

And since we were colonized by different countries like Spain and the US for a very long time, we have adapted their traditions and beliefs. This healthy mix of influences abled us to work harmoniously in different and dynamic setups and workplaces.

Filipinos are also known for being hospitable, but it’s not just people that we always give our warm welcome.  We wholeheartedly welcome different cultures and trends. Here, it’s normal to be a fan of US pop culture, Korean Pop Culture, European culture, and many more. See, it’s proof of how much we can adapt easily.

In terms of literacy rate, the Philippines has a 98.2% adult literacy rate according to the 2015 data of knoema.com. It is in the mindset of Filipinos that we need to finish education or finish college for us to get a decent job and earn a living.

What about now in the time of pandemic/ COVID-19

Of course, we adjusted. This health crisis shall not stop businesses from operating. We implemented work-from-home setups to continue our service to our clients.

Telecommuting/remote working has become the new normal. Offices and establishments may be empty but we can assure you that its employees are working comfortably working in the premises of their home.

According to Deloitte’s 2016 Global Outsourcing Survey, 59% of companies use outsourcing as a cost-cutting tool. This is not a promotional tactic but a strategic choice backed by business experts.
