Question: Why should I employ someone from the Philippines?”

RCP Answer: “Many employers around the world have recognized the Philippines as a source of a good quality, skilled and semi skilled labour force. Filipino workers are greatly sort after internationally for a range of reasons.  Most are fluent in English. They are traditionally hard-working, loyal, caring, and particularly adaptable to other cultures. Despite their international-standard training, skilled vacancies are not plentiful in the Philippines, and remuneration is poor.  Currently some 10 million Filipinos are working in more than 170 countries worldwide and according to recent statistics approx 3,000 Filipinos depart the Philippines daily to work abroad. Qualified Filipino workers are diligent.  They want to work, and expand their skills training and work experience.  International development is a career goal for many of them, and they sacrifice a great deal to gain that opportunity”

Question:  “But is employing Filipino workers detrimental to the Philippines?”

RCP Answer:Regardless of their country of origin, professional and other qualified workers with the financial resources usually seek progressive moves throughout their career.  This often involves working overseas for a period to increase their skills and experience.

The Philippines Government encourages, administers, relies on and supports these initiatives”
