The Philippines has become the top destination for overseas companies to find remote employees. You most likely hired a remote Filipino to cut expenditures and add to your workforce. I’m sure you have been enjoying the sincere loyalty and respect that comes with the Filipino culture. While I am sure you are more than happy with your employee there is definitely a way to get more production out of them along with improving their morale.
Most Filipinos would choose to work in an office space with co-workers over working at home alone. Filipinos love social interaction which is why there are so many successful call centers in the Philippines. Even Filipinos not involved call center work prefer to work around others so they feel apart of a group. Employees that feel part of a company will perform a lot better than if they are tucked away alone in their home office.
One of the most cost effective ways to improve the performance of your Filipino employee is to lease flex space for them to work out of. Flex space is a workstation in an open office that you pay per month to use. These open spaces can hold as many as 500 employees all doing different types of remote work for different companies around the world. It really is an intriguing sight to see the amount of creativity in the room.
Having an employee in the Philippines is the perfect time to try out flex space. Workstations can be leased for less than $200 a month so there is really no risk. Give your employee the opportunity to be more creative and focused at their jobs. They will have a stronger sense of accomplishment and be more productive. Everyone wins when you lease flex space for your Filipino remote employee.
