With the Filipino Workforce in High Demand, PageUp’s New Book Provides Cutting-edge Insight for Successful People Management in the Philippines

SYDNEY, MELBOURNE, SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, KUALA LUMPUR, NEW YORK and LONDON (March 17, 2015) — PageUp, a leading Multinational People Management Software provider, today announced the release of its book, Talented Philippines. Following the success of Talented Southeast Asia, PageUp’s extensive research into people management practices across the region, the company’s latest book provides an in-depth look at the unique opportunities and challenges encountered by employers and employees in the Philippines.

As the Filipino population itself is often regarded as the nation’s most high potential asset, human capital is of critical importance – not only to the success of individual companies operating there, but also to the country as a whole. Amid the paradox of poverty and wealth, tradition and innovation, past and future, the Philippines presents immense opportunities for business growth. However, the challenges facing businesses, whether local companies headquartered in the country or multinational corporations looking to leverage its qualified workforce, are formidable.

“With a strong economic foundation, a robust supply of business process outsourcing services and a youthful population rallying for change and opportunities, it is no wonder that the Philippines has become the go-to destination for companies expanding to Southeast Asia,” said Karen Cariss, CEO and co-founder of PageUp and co-author of the book. “But the country can present some obstacles for those not familiar with the intricacies, cultural nuances and expectations of its workforce, driving the need for a resource like Talented Philippines to help guide their efforts and ensure success.”

Talented Philippines was created to address the critical business and HR issues impacting the Philippines today as the country continues to transform. Based on the responses of more than 650 business and HR practitioners at the forefront of HR innovation, thought leadership and implementation in the country, the book explores the people management priorities across small, medium and large enterprises operating in the Philippines. Combined with numerous case studies that highlight the experiences of leading organizations and insight from a wide cross-section of public and private sector enterprises, Talented Philippines offers global best practices for multinational companies looking to leverage the great promise of this flourishing nation and its talented workforce.

“The Philippines is home to some of the most promising human talent in the world, and organizations have much to gain by leveraging the power of its growing workforce,” said Sylvia Vorhauser-Smith, PageUp’s Senior Vice President of Global Research and co-author of the book. “Through our research, surveys and interviews, we aimed to unlock the secrets to people management in this vibrant country and help companies attract, retain and maximize the performance of their Filipino employees.”

Vorhauser-Smith continued, “Just as Talented Southeast Asia was the first book of its kind to take a deep look into people management best practices in the region, we shared a similar goal with Talented Philippines – to provide the insight needed to ensure an effective human capital strategy in the country during a time of enormous change and transformation.”
