How Microsourcing Works
Setting up a team and moving business operations abroad is difficult to manage from a distance. MicroSourcing helps companies of all sizes by finding and managing offshore staff on your behalf and supplying the workspaces.
They also provide functions rooms, shared employee facilities like locker rooms, restaurants, and pharmacies in their locations.
For staffing solutions, MicroSourcing has more than 30 full-time employees dedicated to finding highly skilled workers in the Philippines capable of handling your workload.
Your staff are employed by MicroSourcing, so they handle all the legal paperwork which is one less thing for you to worry about trying to manage from overseas.
MicroSourcing offer two main services;
- Supplying office space for businesses setting up operations in the Philippines.
- Recruiting and managing staff.
If you are looking for office space in the Philippines you can choose from any of their locations and the number of seats you want.
Their workspaces are fitted out with all the modern equipment your staff and business needs. They also have shared facilities for their employees as they are housing several clients under the same roof.
When you task MicroSourcing to find your staff in the Philippines they will find the number of workers you require with the desired skill sets and hand over the details for you to review.
You can choose the level of control and involvement you have in managing your staff. So, you can leave it up to MicroSourcing and keep at a distance, or be more hands-on with the day-to-day operations.
Plans and Pricing
MicroSourcing break down their costs into two elements;
- Direct Employee Costs – The total cost per employee. This includes their salary, benefits, taxes, insurance, and so on.
- Service Fee – There is a service fee to cover the support services they are providing, such as workspace, facilities, etc.
They don’t provide any set fees or pricing plans.
Each client is given a custom quote based on the services they require so you need to contact a member of their team to discuss your individual business needs.
Microsourcing is for larger companies looking to leverage BPO (business process outsourcing at scale. If you need to ramp up a team quickly, I think it’s a strong option. Also worth a look are companies like TayStone or Helpware.
If you need to fulfill individual jobs or shorter-term contracts I recommend checking out virtual assistant companies like OnlineJobs.ph or Task Bullet.
