The Philippines has become the second largest outsourcing destination in the world, experiencing nearly a 70% growth since 2005. The reasons for the growth are quite simple and are the same reasons you should consider hiring a Philippines-based virtual employee.
With approximately a half-million university graduates per year, the Philippines offers a highly educated workforce with degrees in various disciplines from business and marketing to information technology and engineering. There’s a large pool of qualified and knowledgeable workers that possess a strong work ethic and are ready and eager to grow your business.
The Philippines boasts the third largest English-speaking population in the world. This is thanks to the fact that many of the top universities in the Philippines conduct classes entirely in English, making the language frequently practiced in personal, educational, and professional capacities.
In addition to the population’s grasp of the English language, Filipinos speak with a very clear and neutral accent. An accent neutral workforce is incredibly beneficial for clients who need voiced-based telemarketing and customer services. By outsourcing your project to the Philippines, you can be assured verbal business communications will be effective, seamless and affordable.
Culturally, the Filipino and American lifestyle is quite similar. The historical relations between the Philippines and the United States greatly influenced many aspects of Filipino life, from government to education to music, entertainment and fashion. These same influences permeate Filipino culture to this day. The popular restaurants, movies, television shows, or music that you enjoy in the United States or other developed nations are the same ones Filipinos enjoy. You won’t encounter any cultural hurdles with your virtual employee, which makes for a productive and effective working relationship.
