Many successful businesses all over the world hire the best talents they can find. Business owners, CEO and HR Managers make sure that they select the right people for the job. There are many factors to consider when it comes to hiring the right employee to help the business with its daily operation. If you don’t know where to get the right people, then it will be hard for your company to meet its end goals. Companies with incompetent employees are definitely set to fail. It’s like having a ship with a captain but no crew.
Nowadays, many companies are outsourcing talents from all around the world. One of the many industries that outsourced employees from many different countries is the BPO industry. It’s been more than a decade since the BPO industry started to boom and they’ve been sourcing out talents from many countries such as the Philippines and India, where English is one of the secondary languages, written and spoken. However, one thing that impresses many international businesses, aside from the neutral accent, is the fast learning curves of the Filipinos. It is an undeniable fact that many Filipinos have earned trust globally from many countries such as the United States, Canada, Australia, Singapore, Japan, Hongkong, the Middle East countries, other neighboring Asian countries, and many other European countries, etc.
Filipinos are Fast Learners, Globally Competitive
What makes Filipinos top notch in helping foreign businesses and investors, is that we are not just trustworthy, but we are talented, loyal, dedicated and hard working. Watch the video clip below to see and hear what these successful international companies have to say about Filipinos.

Foreign Companies Outsource Filipino Workers to Save Cost
Another advantage foreign companies have when hiring Filipino workers is that they save more money than hiring locals. Here’s an analysis done by onlinejobs.ph (for VAs and Freelancers) where they’ve put together how much it would cost a business in a year, assuming that you would hire one person specialized in these different categories.
Imagine hiring a team of 5 Filipino workers, who will take care of your web design and development, seo, graphic design, social media and other administrative tasks for your business, can save you 90% of what it will cost you when hiring in-house staff and 6 times more saving than hiring local outsource partner. Even if you raise their hourly rates and give them more benefits and incentives, it would still be cheaper.
Challenges When Hiring Filipino Workers
Currently, with the sea of Filipino freelancers and VAs out there, it will be tough for you to find the right candidate. There are many pros and cons when hiring freelancers and VA’s, one of which you might be disappointed about is that most Filipinos have intermittent issues with internet connections (depending on how close they live to a major city). Second is that they sometimes tend not to communicate consistently and may fall asleep while working during your time. Some foreign companies may ask their VAs to work on their own phase but some would want to have their VA’s work with them during their office hours (mostly US). Third is that many Filipinos are very sensitive to criticism. They tend to be so emotional if you coach them when they commit errors. But the biggest pro that I can share with you is that many Filipinos are more loyal and dedicated and hard-working than their American counterparts. If you are able to get their loyalty, you can expect a lot more from them. Filipinos develop innate sense of honor and duty, motivated to be proactive coupled with their hardworking employer.
