Everything you need to know about an Employer of Record

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. However, you still have all the responsibilities of an employer and the associated tax obligations that come with hiring in another country.

The solution is to hire your new employees using an Employer of Record (EOR) in the Philippines. It’s ideal for small to medium size companies that don’t have an HR department of any significant size. It’s also perfect for start-ups that have a limited budget and few resources.

What is an Employer of Record in the Philippines?

An Employer of Record in the Philippines is a third party that hires and manages your new employees. This company manages all the recruitment processes and onboarding of your new staff, and in the case of Outsourced, provides all the resources they need to work full-time for your organisation.

Essentially, an EOR in the Philippines is the employer of your new staff. You can imagine how much time and effort is spent on administrative duties, for example, HR, payroll, sick leave and annual leave and how much you’ll save by not being their formal employer. On top of all this, Outsourced provides a state-of-the-art facility in Manila where your dedicated, full-time employee works. We provide all the infrastructure, computers, software, IT help and fast internet service they require.

Even though Outsourced is the formal employer of your employees in the Philippines, as a leading EOR, we don’t have any managerial or supervisory responsibilities. We just give your remote staff […]

Best country for software development outsourcing in Asia

Asia english proficiency graph

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.

How technology companies can leverage the metaverse?


What do you know about metaverse outsourcing? For most people, the metaverse is a new concept. In fact, many people might have no idea what you are talking about when you mention the metaverse. On the other hand, for technology companies, the word screams potential – the potential for massive opportunities.

However, to achieve this potential you need to leverage the opportunities offered by metaverse staff outsourcing in the Philippines.

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. It’s the next itineration of the internet, an evolution that’s likely to see the rise of online 3D environments, resulting in access to a meld of virtual reality and augmented reality experiences.

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.

There are already opportunities for the gaming and VR/AR industries in the metaverse. For example people are already buying virtual fashion, game accessories and even virtual real estate, using […]
