It has become the “in” thing for many businesses these days to source out work to companies. Aside from being potentially cheaper, they also save your time and energy for your more important business-related tasks.

Even here in the Philippines–in Davao no less–many businesses have opted to hire BPO firms for jobs that they need to do but can’t. Graphic design, content writing, web development, customer service–you name it, BPO companies have got it.
So, fellow Davaoeño, are you looking for a BPO to outsource to? Don’t look elsewhere, stick to a Davao based outsourcing company instead.
Aside from the rapidly booming BPO industry here in Davao, here are several good reasons to go local:
1. It’s Cheaper
Hiring foreign companies can cost lot of money. It’s quite well known even outside the outsourcing world that the Philippines has low labor costs compared to many well-known countries with BPOs.
But just because service costs less doesn’t mean there is less quality.
And, let’s face it, the world has always had a volatile economy. Better to save those dollars and spend your pesos here, right? Because if you do so:
2. You’ll Be Helping the Locals in Your Own Little Way
Local BPOs aren’t just helping you–you’re helping them out too. BPO employees work long hours and many spend their holidays in the office. A lot of outsourcers make a lot of sacrifices to ensure a better future for their family.
When they get a job from a local client, it’s like a warm reminder that they don’t always have to rely on jobs from overseas firms so they can support their families and dreams. They can also rely on you.
Are you feeling a little bit more patriotic yet?
3. Davaoeños Know What You Need
Instead of searching high and low for outsourcing services outside the city, why not go for a BPO in Davao City?
A local outsourcer can gain more in-depth knowledge and understanding of your business and product than an outsider can. They don’t have to rely on asking you for details or researching on what you do. They can just visit your place of business instead.
Plus, nothing beats the pride and camaraderie among fellow Davaoeños helping each other out.
4. We Work Hard
Overseas, both OFWs and Filipino BPO employees have gained a reputation for being reliable and hardworking. Our workforce in general is highly skilled. We also have a good grasp of the English language, we’re fast learners and highly trainable. These traits are some of the reasons why Filipinos are so sought out in many countries.
The best Philippine BPOs, Davaoeño or not, won’t work their butts off only for foreign clients. They’ll do their best for any customer, overseas or local, because they aren’t only representing their corporation. They are representing their city and their country too. After all, no outsourcing company wants to let their country down.
