The Real Condition of Outsourcing in the Philippines

(In response to Obama’s 2012 State of the Nation Address)

Last January 24, 2012, US President Obama delivered his State of the Nation Address from 9PM-10:17 PM (EST), in the chamber of the United States House of Representatives. The US president's State of the Nation Address was not supposed to be a concern of any Filipino citizen, especially those that have lived their whole lives in the Philippines and do not have any plans of stepping into the "land of the brave", except when it talked about inhibiting the outsourcing capacities of multinational US companies--which has become pretty much the bread and butter of the Philippine Economy. Without really getting into the truth of the matter, more than a million of Filipinos were scared of losing their jobs; a lot of breadwinners were worried of what's going to happen to their families if they lost their jobs; and many people were anxious of the immediate and adverse effects this State of the Nation Address has on their lives, specifically on the financial aspect. Are their fears justified or there’s really no ground for it?

No one can blame them if they reacted that way; after all, the media reported it as if changes would take effect the next day. Right after they heard the news, majority of the people felt that the booming industry of Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) which has provided thousands, even millions of jobs in the Philippines is now coming to an end. It's not unknown to anyone in the Philippines that the biggest chunk of recruitment, hiring, and employment in the country comes from the BPO sector; and just thinking that it would be stopped, the Filipino people can more or less already get a picture of how the economy would fair given the sudden increase of the unemployment rate.

However, scrutinizing the facts and proofs about the issue, many experts think and have agreed that the news is a bit exaggerated. Even though, the public’s concern was not unfounded, but admittedly it was unnecessary—at least at this point.

Strictly speaking, the US President did not mention the word "ban" in his speech, nor did he mention the complete "stop" of offshore outsourcing among the multinational US companies. In his State of the Nation Address, he pushed for a bill that can reform their tax codes. This is because he has realized that most companies who have outsourced offshore, actually gets a lesser or no tax deductions by doing so; and thus, to discourage them from continuing to outsource and contributing to the increasing US unemployment rate, President Obama wanted a reform on their tax regulations which would then allow these companies to have a big tax deductions and made them pay a "basic minimum tax" fee for outsourcing offshore.

Upon evaluating the president's speech further, the abolishment of outsourcing in the country is still fully dependent on the tax laws which still have to be created by the law-making body of the state. Although he has assured the congress that the moment the bill will be submitted, he will sign it right away so that it can be applied immediately. However, everybody knows that passing a bill and turning it into a law is still quite a long process to take. Thus, if indeed things would go according to the president's speech, it will buy us, at the least, 3 years to exhaust all we can in the BPO industry and for our government to create contingency plans to save our economy as well as our fellow Filipino men from the impending crisis brought by the dissolution of offshore outsourcing from the US.

The business process outsourcing industry in the Philippines has grown 46% annually since 2006. This boom is led by demand for offshore call centres. This massive increase has a lot to do by how the Filipino work ethics is. Among all the services offered by outsourcing and offshoring sectors, call centres are the most in demand for. Most Western countries pride the Philippines’ attitude and skills in providing services.

Call centres began in the Philippines as plain providers of email response and managing services.

US House Bill 3596 and its Effect to the Philippine BPO

The recent state of the global economy is shaky and unstable and first world countries such as the United States of America are one of the most affected. Due to the recession, debts continue to rise and left thousands of US citizens jobless for the past several months. This phenomenon is has been on-going for several years now and the US government is constantly finding ways on how to sustain their citizens amidst the country’s financial problem.

Recently, there is a pending bill in the US congress called H.R. 3596 or The United States Call Centre Worker and Consumer Protection Act. This bill aims to discourage US companies to outsource their operations and will penalise those who will be giving jobs overseas. The US is one of the Philippines’ clients however according to business analysts; this will not affect the Philippines’ economy and employment rate greatly once this bill will be passed. In fact, some even say that this would be more disadvantageous for the US.

Philippine offshore outsourcing is considered the second best in the world next to India. The primary reason why the country became so popular in the field of offshore outsourcing is because of its low costs on high quality services. Aside from this, most foreigners pride the country’s work ethics. It is said that Filipinos are very easy to work with. Aside from their globally competitive skills and knowledge, they are easy to communicate with as they are fluent in speaking and writing in English. Aside from this, Filipinos are known to be hard working and enthusiastic at the same time. They are respectful and are not argumentative. Most of all, they value the needs of their customers and are sincere on providing the best quality of services.

The Filipino traits are one of the solid reasons why analysts say that the Philippines wouldn’t be that affected if ever House Bill 3596 is passed. The US isn’t the only major client the country has and it is false that outsourcing offshore is killing the States’ economy.

Economists and business analyst this US congress move to be a little unclear when it comes to providing a better employment rate for the country. With USA’s cost of living, it would still be far more expensive than offshoring it to the Philippines. Thus, companies would suffer from greater expense damages for productivity. Looking at it this way, progress would become a little slower when insourcing. As for the Philippines, BPO companies are eyeing for 16-20% growth this coming 2012 and more job opportunities keep on arriving
