Hi, fellow business owners!
I’m Chris Jankulovski, Founder and CEO of Remote Staff – a remote-first BPO that has been sourcing and placing Filipino remote workers for businesses since 2007.
Running Remote Staff for 14 long years, I have struggled working with a remote team and eventually succeeded in making it work, not only for my business, but also for our clients’ businesses. Yes, it has not been easy, but if I would have to do it all over again, I wouldn’t do it any other way. Why, you ask?
It’s simply because:
Offshoring is an empowering solution. It enables businesses like yours to scale locally.
I have witnessed how our clients gained the ability to scale locally by offshoring. And if they managed to make offshoring work for them, then you can, too. On my June 2021 webinar, I shared the things I’ve learned about offshore remote staffing and working with a remote team to business owners who are looking to grow their businesses remotely, and now, I am sharing them with you.
Here are valuable takeaways you can consider in deciding to start building your own remote team:
If you can spend less for high-quality work, then why not offshore?
The Philippines is home to great talent and capable workers. There’s lots of them out there, so you can surely find one, two, or even more that will be a great fit for your business.
The best thing about it is you don’t have to break the bank to acquire reliable Filipino talent as you would hiring locally. You can hire them at a fair price that is based on the cost of living in the Philippines.
High-quality work for less!

Stop pulling your hair worrying about what roles to offshore. There is a formula for that.
Offshoring begins with knowing and understanding what roles to offshore for your business. This can be quite challenging, especially for business owners who are hiring remote workers for the first time.
I do have a simple formula to help you decide:
- List down the tasks you want done.
- Decide on the duration in terms of hours.
- Decide on the frequency the task will be performed per day and per week.
- Calculate the total hours.
- Ask yourself if these tasks can be bundled.
- Decide what role can perform a group of tasks.
When you find a really good talent that’s helping you advance your business, look after that talent.
There is no shortcut to finding the right person for the right job. Surely, hiring directly has its advantages – it’s more suitable for business owners who are looking for people who can work on tasks for a short period of time.
However, if you are someone who is looking for a team member you can rely on to help you advance your business long term, then you better be ready to invest. It takes time, energy, money, and other resources to look after a great talent.
Nevertheless, it’s definitely worth your while.

Avoid the costly mistake of hiring the wrong people by hiring through an agency.
There is nothing wrong with offshoring on your own, but if you get stuck in a rut, asking for help is not such a bad idea. This is why offshore staffing agencies are for. They are businesses that exist for other businesses.
And because these offshore staffing agencies make helping businesses their business, they have invested in qualified staff to help deliver on their promises to the market and in new technologies to ramp up their recruitment capabilities.
Sit back, relax, and let a seasoned offshore staffing agency do all the work.
Hiring via an offshore staffing agency is like shopping at a one-stop-shop – it’s got everything you need and more.
Companies like Remote Staff do all the recruitment work upfront for free. From sourcing candidates, screening them with our behavioural, cognitive, and skills assessment tests, to facilitating interviews – we do them all, obligation-free.

Avoid falling into the trap of spoon-feeding.
Grow your talent, instead.
Initially, newly established remote work relationships can be rough, but this is normal. You are practically strangers working together. Mistakes will be made and misunderstandings can happen, but this hurdle can be overcome.
Working with a new remote worker requires patience and time. In the beginning, you will have to guide them through your process to make sure that you get them to a standard that you require.
Be careful, though, as you don’t want to fall into the trap of spoon-feeding. To avoid this, allow your remote workers to apply themselves and make mistakes. Provide them with practice opportunities, and eventually, you will see them grow in the role you have given them.
There is so much more to say about offshoring and working with a remote team. You can count on me to endeavour to provide you with more content about these topics in the coming months, so I hope you stay tuned for more. See you in my next webinar!
