Manila, the capital of the Philippines, has always been the go-to outsourcing destination. This has been the case for over a decade. Recently however, fueled by increasing congestion and worsening traffic conditions, an increasing number of companies have been setting up outside Manila. Here are some of the reasons why you should consider following this trend too.
1. Lower Cost of Doing Business
Enjoy a comfortable life without spending too much.
Lower wages, rental rates, cost of goods and services in the province mean we can pass on the savings to you. These factors contribute to lower overhead and operating costs. Lower wage doesn’t mean workers outside of Manila are shortchanged. The lower cost of living here means they can enjoy a comfortable life without spending too much.
2. Lower Stress Leads to Higher Productivity
People here enjoy a simpler lifestyle away from the hustle and bustle of the metro. There’s less traffic congestion, overcrowding and pollution. Commuting is also significantly more convenient. These conditions lead to lower stress and higher quality of life which help your business through increased productivity of your staff. According to a recent study, happy workers are more productive leading to a successful business.
