Why hire Filipinos?
Unlike most Asian countries, Philippines is very westernised, and is the 3rd largest English speaking nation in the world, which makes the country globally competitive. This makes communication quick, comfortable, and efficient. In fact, the medium of instruction in most universities and colleges is primarily English. Most of the mainstream media is also in English. The culture, though distinctly Filipino, is engrained with various western influences; this makes dealing with Filipinos very easy. The lack of a language barrier makes Filipinos great candidates to work in multicultural countries such as Japan, the United States, the United Kingdom, China, Australia and Europe.
Filipinos stand out in the global workforce and are highly sought after by leading employers. They have earned a reputation for their integrity, skill and adaptability. For these factors, the hiring of Filipinos has become the one of the leading recruitment choices for countries from all over the world.
