Hey, hey, hey! Welcome back to Outsource Manager. I hope everything is working well between you and your Filipino employee or employees.

In my earlier post, I shared with you the common qualities online Filipino employees may have. E.g. being shy and/or embarrassed when they don’t fully understand what you want.

In this post, I will be sharing another “must know” tip about your Filipino employees so you may enjoy a happy and long-lasting working relationship.

Another thing you should know about your Filipino employee is: Most Filipinos are very emotional. They think everything is big deal. You may not have recognized it but deep inside, they give more weight to your opinion than you ever imagined, whether it is positive or negative. How you give feedback really matters to them.

For example: If you make them feel stupid unintentionally, they feel even more “unworthy” to work for you, as Filipinos feel unworthy by nature. The next thing you need to know is they will already be gone without saying anything to you. So, when you give feedback, try to ALWAYS find something positive to say BEFORE telling them the negative ones. By doing this, you are not only tactful, but also building up their trust in you. This will prevent them from disappearing suddenly and this will give them the confidence to go above and beyond. You will notice that they will get bolder, want to help you all the more and maybe even start coming up with new strategies to try to help your business.

Here are some examples on how to do this the “Filipino way”.

• “I really like what you did here, but let’s change a little…”

• “Wow, you did a great job with this! However…”

• “This was really well done! Let’s go over it and…”

• “Thanks for working so hard on this. I can see that I may not have done a very good job with my instructions.” (This is it if they have not followed directions at all).

These are just a few examples of the many ways to give feedback to your Filipino employees that would help them boost their self-confidence & work confidence. Just always remember, most Filipinos are very emotional. So, when you give critiques to your employees, praise them first. You will then have a happy and long-lasting work relationship.

      Yes, but that sounds like you need some short term help. Our workers are looking for full time work (some will do part time).

      It sounds like you may find what you need at Odesk.com or Guru.com.

      If you are looking for a full time (or part time) outsourced worker, please shoot us an email or reply here for more info.
