Companies from small boutiques to big brands have turned to outsourced jobs to cut operation costs resulting in an increase profitability and more customer intake.

According to statistics released by Bureau of Labor, computer programming is the number one job that is most likely to be outsourced to SEA countries such as India and the Philippines, where competitive software developers, computer programmers and IT analysts are more than happy to charge 1/10th of the labor cost of the average Australian/American wage.

Everything you need to know about an Employer of Record

An Employer of Record in the Philippines puts a whole new spin on outsourcing. You already know that outsourcing to the Philippines can save you up to 70% of the cost when hiring locally.

Best country for software development outsourcing in Asia

Software development outsourcing to Asia has been growing steadily over the past four decades but has seen rapid growth since the COVID pandemic. With outsourcing costs anything up to 75% lower than hiring locally, Asia is definitely at the forefront of the outsourcing industry.

The problem with outsourcing to Asia, however, is that it consists of 48 countries and three territories, so where do you start? At Outsourced, we’ve done all the work for you, comparing the top six countries in Asia for software development outsourcing: the Philippines, Malaysia, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Thailand.

Comparisons were made on four essential outsourcing criteria: English proficiency, western cultural similarities, cost savings, and education and intelligence. These were ranked from best to worst with a score of six being the highest and one being the lowest.

English proficiency

English proficiency was based on the EF EPI Proficiency Index 2021 which provides a quantitative and qualitative score (first and second rows in Figure 1, respectively); rankings were allocated according to these scores (shown in bold in the last row of Figure 1).  The higher the score, the greater a county’s English proficiency.

The Philippines tops our list because English was introduced during the US colonial occupation in the early 1900s and has become their second official language.

Exploring the opportunities of the metaverse

The metaverse is best described as a fusion between the real world and a virtual world. It’s a digital world with infinite potential where people can interact using avatars.

Users can visit new locations, interact with educational packages, connect and conduct business, all whilst existing in an immersive, but digital environment. Mark Zuckerberg has recognised the potential of the metaverse, even going so far as renaming his company Meta Platforms and investing in building the world’s fastest AI supercomputer to achieve his goals.

Gaming companies are already building environments in the metaverse, Nike and H&M have purchased marketplaces, and Facebook and Microsoft are positioning themselves as venders to service tech companies. As more and more companies begin trading in the metaverse, the need for metaverse outsourcing will become even more vital, particularly for tech companies.

How can Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) in the Philippines benefit your company?

One of the ways you can reduce the mundane and repetitive tasks performed by your staff and save both time and money is by recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) in the Philippines.

Outsourced is a leading provider of RPO in the Philippines and we have built a solid reputation for our expertise in all areas of recruitment across an extensive range of roles. Recruitment, of course, is an integral part of every business, but the amount of time and money spent on these processes can easily be spent elsewhere.

What you need is a provider who manages all the varying elements of the recruiting process, leaving your in-house staff to focus on building your business. Afterall, there’s little to be gained by diverting your senior staff and embroiling them in a process that can be lengthy, frustrating and exhausting. It’s much more productive to outsource recruitment to the Philippines and hire a provider who can fulfill all your requirements, quickly and easily.

What is recruitment process outsourcing (RPO)?

Recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) is where you transfer all or part of your recruitment processes to an external provider. This may be just a single recruitment drive, but more often than not, companies are now permanently transferring these tasks to a provider.

Your RPO provider can leverage your in-house staff, but they generally use their own recruitment specialists, as well as technology and methodology to manage the recruitment processes. In essence, they become a stakeholder who is responsible for sourcing candidates, shortlisting, interviewing, testing (if required), hiring and onboarding all future employees of your company.

Everything you need to know about Workforce Outsourcing in the Philippines

If one of your goals is to grow and expand your business at minimum cost or to extend into new regions, have you considered workforce outsourcing in the Philippines?

Workforce outsourcing is a strategy where you hire a team of employees at one time to fulfill a range of roles within your company. It’s a proven way to save time and money on a recruitment process that can be exhausting, frustrating and time consuming.

Outsourced is a leading provider of workforce outsourcing in the Philippines, ensuring that your company has the best mix of talented individuals to help achieve your goals.

What is workforce outsourcing?

Workforce outsourcing is when you engage a third party (such as Outsourced) to recruit and onboard your extended staff and labour force. Attempting to find multiple employees at one time can be an exhausting experience, particularly when the talent pool is low. This often delays your plans and entangles senior staff in not only covering a large range of repetitive tasks, but also requires them to take on additional recruitment activities.

If your business is large enough to have HR personnel, then this doesn’t always solve the problem, particularly when the type of employees you require are few and far between. Trying to find experienced professionals can be difficult, let alone enough employees to fill a call centre or start up a new factory overseas. These are just some of the reasons why engaging with workforce outsourcing services has become a very popular strategy for many growing businesses around the world.

Outsourcing vs Insourcing

Productivity, efficiency and flexibility is the mantra of business leaders, but the critical factor is your workforce. With the right people onboard you can increase productivity and achieve your goals faster, but to do that, you need an efficient recruitment and hiring model.

This brings us to the question of outsourcing vs insourcing. The former being a highly successful, efficient, flexible and cost saving model of hiring new employees. The latter is the traditional pathway for hiring staff that’s often time consuming, frustrating and expensive.

Let’s take a look at both outsourcing and insourcing, so you can decide whether your business can benefit from a change in your hiring practices.

What is insourcing?

Insourcing is the model traditionally used by most companies today to hire new employees. Once hired locally, these employees are allocated to specific jobs, roles, tasks or projects. All work is kept in-house with no outside, freelance or outsourced input.

Pros of insourcing

One benefit if insourcing is that you’re using your own people to manage your operations. These people are dedicated to your company and understand your brand and its messaging.

They are onboard with your company’s identity, culture, values and ethics and are more than capable of representing your company to the public. Another benefit of insourcing is that you completely control the processes and systems used by your in-house employees to achieve your company’s goals.

These have been the benefits that have bolstered adherence to insourcing – familiarity and control. However, when compared to outsourcing to a reliable offshore outsourcing company (such as Outsourced), they no longer continue to be as meaningful as once thought.
