International companies are no stranger to outsourcing their operations to a Filipino digital agency (or Filipinos in general, for that matter). All it takes is a stroll in one of Manila’s business districts to know how true this statement is: Our streetscapes are dominated by high-rise buildings lit during the nighttime by the logos of big-name international companies that have found the country as their second home. So, what’s drawing business owners from around the world to Filipino workers? It’s probably because of the following:
- We’re hardworking.
Filipinos are known for their outstanding work ethic and resilience in the workplace. We recognize that it’s difficult to earn a living in the Philippines, so we don’t take our work for granted. Time is precious for us, so we make sure that in order to find ample time to spend with our family, we have to make every minute at work count. But we definitely don’t mind rising to the occasion, especially when our help is urgently needed.
- We deliver quality work.
“Sloppy” is not in our vocabulary, and so is the word “shortcut.” We painstakingly check our work for errors, because we take pride in the work we do. Don’t think that this pride is misplaced at all: It’s not that we’re not open to feedback, but we hate the feeling of missing a detail.
- We speak English well.
We’ve been introduced to the English language early on in our life because English is our medium of instruction at school. This explains why no matter how low or high the educational attainment of a Filipino is, talk to them in English and they could still understand you and respond in the language. We also rank high on top ten lists of countries that speak the language competently. We are, in fact, “the world’s best country in business English proficiency,” according to a report in The Economist.
- We don’t overcharge.
Being in a third world country makes our labor cost lower than other locations. This is because the cost of living is lower in the Philippines. However, this doesn’t mean that our value as workers is not worth something. We’re very intelligent, skilled and resourceful, and for these reasons, we charge a competitive rate, too. We fairly price our services for the benefit our clients and ourselves.
