Hiring Filipino Outsourced Workers: How to Get Rid of The Rotten Apples

What if I told you I could get you a guy to work for you full time, 40 hours per week, an SEO expert and has vast knowledge about internet marketing and web design? How much do you think would you need to pay this guy monthly? $1000 – $1500 perhaps?

Now, what if I told you that the salary he was asking for is only $300 per month?

Sounds really crazy doesn’t it? But all of it is so true. What I am talking about is getting outsourced workers from the Philippines. This country is actually overflowing with college graduates who find it appealing to work from home over the internet. And guess what, $300, when converted to their local currency is actually a fair salary.

But as with any industry, there are always rotten apples in every basket.

The following are some tips on how you can weed out the bad apples from the good ones.

Choosing the Right Outsourced Worker

It will take some time to find the right outsourced worker that will fit your needs, so do not hire the first applicant you find right away. Accept a lot of job applications and take time to compare the applicants’ strengths and abilities with each other.

The Interview

In outsourcing, you will be managing your workforce from a distance so it is very important that the outsourced worker you will be hiring is honest and hard-working. By asking them the right questions and listening very carefully to their answers you can get a feel of what kind of employee they will be. Be sure to ask about past work experiences. Give them a certain situation and ask them how they would handle it. Look out for warning signs like a negative attitude and people that don’t care about deadlines.

Stay Away From the Lowest Bidders

Do not be tempted with those outsourced workers who are asking for very low salaries. More often than not, they are just con artists who will disappear after receiving the first pay. While you do not have to spend a lot on workers’ salary, there is no reason to be overly cheap either. Remember that you get what you pay for.
