Who Are We

A Word from Our Directors

I was introduced to the concept of outsourcing initially when I wanted to expand my traditional business. As I was already working 80 plus hours per week and couldn’t really afford to employ someone until my expansion resulted in extra profits, a mentor advised me to get a “VA” a virtual/personal assistant, to help me with my new workload. I was surprised how affordable this was and my new VA was amazing.

I must admit I felt like I’d “made it” having a “personal assistant working for me and I couldn’t believe how much extra time I now had to work on my business not in my business!!!

It did take me a little time to work out how to delegate my jobs but luckily my mentor kept on me to keep delegating more work to her…within 6 months I put on another one….. and then another! My business than tripled in turnover! I couldn’t believe my ‘return on investment’ was that significant!

Now my other department heads have their own VA’s and they are so much more productive and happy! In fact, we have all gone to a 4 day week!

I had always heard the saying, as the owner, you need to work on your business not in it, if you want it to grow. And that is exactly what I was able to do with the help of these amazing VAs !!!

So when my mentor suggested setting up Phil Labor and helping other business owners take advantage of this assistance to build their dreams, I jumped on it!

CEO, Phil Labor BPO

I was first exposed to the concept of outsourcing in 2014 when expanding my small drinking water supply business here in the Philippines. I had already been living and working 50% of the time in the Philippines and the other half in Australia.

I have since fallen in love with the Philippines and have basically lived here since 2016. Today I work full-on in the outsourcing/offshoring industry managing the day-to-day operations at Phil Labor. The Filipino people are amazing and most thrive on the challenge of assisting organisations to grow their businesses.

These young, well-educated and motivated people speak English well and learn quickly. Once you find a good staff member and they also like you and your team – you will have a loyal employee for many years to come. Why the Philippines? Well, it’s more than just the reduced costs to your bottom line, it’s the life-changing opportunities this brings to your staff members and their extended families. This is a relatively poor country but through outsourcing, things are changing for the better.

I love introducing SMEs and larger businesses to the concept of outsourcing through the Philippines and then seeing the changes it can make to their business. It’s not all smooth sailing as there will be challenges along the way but if you are willing to train and nurture your team, you, like many others, will reap the rewards.

If you are tired of working ‘in’ your business and prefer to work ‘on’ it, this may just be what the doctor ordered.
