Would You Hire a Department Head from the Philippines?
Sean D. 2 posts - United States
Hi; I've used Filipinos in the past for low level work and my experience with them is that they are less creative and skillful than my domestic employees. This is obviously a broad strokes generalization but it seems to hold true for the vast majority of employees.
I have a position opening up for a department head soon and it does not require a physical presence for any work. I'm tempted to consider a lower cost country, especially PI, since we have a lot of workers in that area/time zone. I've never hired an executive or even a manager from the Philippines though. And obviously if the talent isn't there I'll go with another area because it doesn't make sense to save a few dollars to have an incapable higher-up.
Just wanted to get some opinions from the other employers here--would you even consider hiring this type of position out of PI?
