Still stuck? Here are some of Outsourced’s tips on what to outsource to free up your time and increase your productivity:

Whilst you can be particular on how to word your tweets or which filter you want to use for your Instagram posts, delegating this task to someone else frees up a lot of time. To save even more time, task the same person with writing your blog posts and manage your publication deadlines.

IT BPM Industry Future and Growth

About IT BPM:

The Philippines’ IT BPM industry, or Information Technology and Business Process Management, has been one of the best employment and performance rates within the past 4 years. Since 2010, the IT BPM industry in the Philippines has overtaken India’s long standing position in voice-based services, making the country the number one provider for such work in the global economy. In addition to this, several non-voice and complex BPO services such as healthcare information management, animation and software development are gaining prominence. Estimated to be at the same level as the IT BPM industry figures, it’s not long before the Phillipines becomes the leading outsourcing country across all areas.

The global foundation of their IT BPM success is largely attributed to the strong and diverse skills of the workforce. Filipinos hold a competitive advantage in English communication skills, strong customer service etiquette and Western culture familiarity. This alone breaks the destructive offshoring stigma which deters many companies away in fear of tainting their brand name. Coupled with the Filipino’s hard work, openness to learning and friendly demeanor, these advantages provide investors with a strong homeland advantage once they set up shop.

Due to its positive influence on it’s global image, the Philippine government provides the IT BPM industry with dedicated funding to ensure that the sector continues to expand, making it one of the most supported sectors within the Philippines. Former President Benigno Aquino III praised the industry’s successful impact on the economy during the International IT-BPM Summit last year, and reiterated the government’s continued support, with recently elected President Rodrigo Duterte sustaining this within his government according to Inquirer.net.
