The Philippines is the best country for outsourcing


One of the most popular destinations for outsourcing work is the Philippines — and for good reason.

Not only is the country cost-effective, but it’s the 3rd-largest English-speaking country in the world, making communication a cinch.

In fact, recruiting from the Philippines is standard across various industries. Not just for IT tasks, such as Software Development, but also for Customer Support, Marketing, and Manufacturing.

In a recent survey of 65 companies, Workest by Zenefits found that the most popular choice is the Philippines, with 1 in 4 respondents hiring Filipino talent.

“The Philippines is one of the best countries to outsource work to, not just in terms of cost but optimally because Filipinos are very hardworking and trustworthy,” says Clint Proctor, Editor in Chief at Investor Junkie.

Manila – the capital city of The Philippines is the only non-Indian city to make the Top 7 of the Tholons International Top 100 Outsourcing destinations. This shows great potentials for any business that is looking for an IT outsourcing destination in Manila.

The number one reason for businesses to choose the Philippines is the competitive costs. Besides the advantage of a low-cost labor force, The Philippines can also offer favorable governmental policies for foreign investors and ICT services in general. To be more specific, BPO services are highlighted as one of the 10 high-potential and priority development areas of The Philippines.

The Philippines’ government also offers tax and non-tax incentives which can help you save from 8–10% of the cost. Moreover, The Philippines has created regional ICT councils and a National ICT Road map for the whole country to follow. When entering the market, you will be assisted and supported by the official authorities.
