How much can I save by outsourcing to the Philippines?
By outsourcing to the Philippines, business owners can save 75% to 85% on staff costs and take advantage of all the benefits that a Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) provider can deliver, such as talent management, HR services, IT and Administration support, freeing you up to focus on results. In addition you also reduce your infrastructure and overhead expenses.
The table below shows a side-by-side comparison of labour expenses in Australia and in the Philippines. The Australian hidden costs include oncosts, superannuation and leave loading.
The Philippines costs include BPO staff management fees as well as wages.
Let’s say you have a small digital marketing team of three people.
In Australia, $250,000 might get you a three-person digital marketing team made up of a marketing assistant, a content writer, and a graphic designer.
In the Philippines, with the same amount of money, you could easily put together a five-person digital marketing team – complete with web developer and SEO specialist – and still save more than $160,000.
With outsourcing, business owners who are either swamped with work or would like to expand their business but are limited by expensive labour costs now have access to the less costly but equally talented global labour force.
