In this blog post, I’ll share to you why I think the Philippines is the best outsourcing location. When I first tried outsourcing my graphic design jobs some years ago, I found a Filipino who did a great job at it. So much so that he opened the doors for me to outsource more of my business functions. In my quest to help other Australian businesses grow, I put up ProcessCorp, a business process outsourcing to the Philippines, and started helping other entrepreneurs and businessmen.
The Philippines is the best outsourcing location for offshore outsourcing because of its highly skilled English-speaking workforce and its good political landscape. Its good outsourcing climate has been providing small to multi-billion-dollar companies with vast opportunities for growth.
Favorable Time Difference
With a time difference of only two hours (three on Daylight Saving), your offshore team will essentially be working at the same time as you. You can even opt for a 24-hour operation if you need people working round the clock for you.
Low Labor Costs
When you outsource, all benefits, incentives, and other HR-related costs are already shouldered by your outsourcing provider. You will find that even with all these, you still get charged 60%-70% less than your current labor costs.
Highly Skilled Workforce
The Philippines boasts of its 97.5% literacy rate with the median age of its population being 23. Every year, about 500,000 graduates from the various universities and colleges in the country are added to its skilled, qualified, and education workforce. Moreover, high school and university curricula are integrated with trainings on the workflows of the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) industry.
Exemplary Work Ethic and Attitude
Filipinos are known for their resourcefulness and good work ethic. They are, perhaps, one of the most hardworking people in the world. Filipinos are very resilient – bouncing back up after every fall with smiles on their faces. The Filipinos’ positive attitude and constant willingness to help and learn will surely help make your offshore outsourcing journey a breeze.
The Philippines is known to be the third largest English-speaking country in the world, with about 95% of its population speaking English. Being a US colony for 48 years, English has become the main and official business language in the country and is used as the medium of instruction in schools.
