Why outsourcing to the Philippines makes sense?

by Shawn William Creative Writer

How does the Philippines explain the benefits of outsourcing to its country? The Philippines is famous for high-quality higher education. According to statistics, the literacy rate in the Philippines is 92.6%. In 2017-2018, the country expects 440,000 graduates to graduate, of which about 50,000 specialize in IT.

So far, the supply of high-quality IT specialists exceeds the demand for them. In general, the Philippines is a very young country. The average age of the population is 22.9 years. Many people have practically no work experience, but they are ready to learn quickly and work hard and intensively.

1.    Education in the Philippines

In 1901, a group of American faculty members founded the first university in Southeast Asia in the Philippines. Today, higher education in the Philippines combines the best traditions of Western education with centuries-old traditions of Asia.

Basically, all reforms to improve education, promoted by the government, are based on Western experience. Therefore, specialists graduated from Philippine universities, they are practically experts who received education in the West, and you will not have to adjust to their cultural characteristics or retrain them.

2.    Good level of English

The Global English Corporation, based in California, estimates that the Professional English Proficiency Index in the Philippines is 7.0 – the best result in the world. 

In addition, the Filipinos’ English speech contains almost no specific Indian or Asian accent, which is very important when dealing with customers.

3.    Low prices

The Philippines is by far the cheapest option for outsourcing. For example, the minimum wage in the country is 10 dollars a day, compare this salary with the salaries in the USA and Europe, a huge difference, isn’t it?

According to recent studies, on average, Philippine outsourcing is 37% cheaper than Indian. In addition, there are very few public holidays in the country, for which the client has to pay, there are only 18, unlike in India, where there are 33.

4.    Understanding that knowledge of languages ​​is power

The more languages ​​an employee has, the better for a company, especially if it is an international corporation. Now in the Philippines, it is still difficult to speak foreign languages ​​other than English, but the government is creating new training programs aimed at improving the level of other foreign languages ​​in the country. 

In the future, in this regard, the Philippines will soon leave their outsourcing competitors far behind.

5.    Working in an outsourcing company is fashionable

More recently, not so many Filipinos preferred to work in the field of outsourcing, mostly non-IT specialists were employed, and call centers were the main area, but today, according to surveys, 46% of IT faculty graduates and already working professionals say that would prefer to work in an outsourcing company.


6.    Outsourcing in the Philippines is reliable

The development and promotion of outsourcing in the Philippines is not just some kind of today’s trend. Gradually, from year to year, outsourcing is making an increasing contribution to creating more jobs in the country and has a significant impact on GDP. 

So, the government makes a serious bet on the development and reliability of outsourcing in the country, because only in 2017, outsourcing provided Filipinos with 610,000 new workers places.
