To date, there are approximately around 8 to 11 million of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in various countries around the globe (Wikipedia). When a Filipino is working overseas, not only is he considered as a good provider for his family but a Modern day Hero by his countrymen. The remittances from them greatly contribute to Philippines’ economy. Therefore, when a foreign employer gives its interest in hiring Filipino workers, not only those that they hire will be benefited but the whole Philippines per se.
If you are planning to hire Filipino workers, here are some common traits you could expect from them:
Loyalty and Appreciation. These are two of the most common traits among Filipinos. When you do something good to a Filipino, he (actually his whole family and relatives) takes it by heart. He will look for ways to return to you the favor. You provide an opportunity for a Filipino worker? He will strive to make you feel that you did the right decision of choosing him.
Resiliency and Adaptability. Filipino workers know how to easily adapt to different kinds of people and are resilient enough to adjust to different environment and culture of other countries.
Close family ties. To provide financial security to their family is the primary motivation for the Filipino worker’s decision to work abroad. They love their family so much that they are willing to spend Christmas and New Year’s Eve, two of the most cherished holidays by Filipinos, away from them. During our conversation with workers who have worked abroad, they would usually tell us that to be far from their families is really a sacrifice for them. But to them, it is a wiser choice in order to provide for their family’s needs –food, clothing, shelter, and education. For them, seeing their family happy and contented make them feel that it is all worth the sacrifice. Thus, they work hard and do their very best in their work because they know they have been given a great opportunity.
English Facility. English is considered as the Philippines’ second language. English has been incorporated into the educational system, using it as the way or method in teaching all the subjects except Filipino. This made way for Filipinos to be fluent and proficient in English language which allows them to easily make conversations with foreigners.
Whenever given an opportunity, Filipinos are noted as hardworking, resourceful, and competent workers. They strive hard not only for themselves but for their loved ones and fellow Filipinos or Kababayan.

HOW DO YOU ENSURE QUALIFIED INDIVIDUALS?
We conduct a Person-Job Fit Assessment, Interview by our Recruitment Officer and Crewing Manager and a Background Check.
Each applicant’s capabilities, attitude, and personal background are carefully assessed through these methods to ensure that only those who are qualified will be recommended to our employers.
Upon doing so, we immediately send and present the documents of the candidates to our employers. Our Employers will then have an option to conduct an Interview for further assessment. Once they have provided us with the list of their selected candidates, these candidates will immediately undergo Trade and Medical testing (Our employers may visit and inspect the testing centers for their approval). The candidates who pass the tests will be processed for Visa Interview.
