If you don’t know yet, I have a newsletter being sent out to subscribers. They are customers and business owners interested in getting an OFS, but want to learn more first before committing.
If you want to subscribe to this newsletter, just sign up for an Onlinejobs.ph employer account.
One great thing about these newsletters is that my subscribers help each other. This is an example.
One subscriber sent me a question, a question asked by many business owners: “How do I keep my Online Filipino Specialist (OFS) busy?”
Many of my subscribers emailed me back and offered advice to the person who sent in the question. An email from Wynn stood out, and I want to share his advice to everyone.
In Wynn’s email, he shared invaluable tips that any employer should consider:
- First and foremost, finding tasks to keep your offshore staff busy is a common concern. It turns out you discover hidden opportunities once you bring someone on board. Whether expanding responsibilities or discovering dual skills, your mindset as a business owner evolves.
- Wynn’s second tip is all about flexibility. Brownouts and internet outages are a reality in the Philippines. Being understanding about these unplanned interruptions fosters a positive working relationship.
- The third piece of advice from Wynn is a golden rule: treat your offshore staff well, and they’ll reciprocate. They are not just your remote workers, they are individuals with feelings. Investing in a positive working relationship pays off in dedication and going the extra mile.
In summary, Wynn’s tips guide successful outsourcing: keep your team engaged, embrace flexibility, and prioritize a positive and respectful working relationship.
I share my take on this and how we do it in our team, so don’t skip on reading this blog post.
