Staff Leasing Steps in the Philippines: How it Works

September 7, 2018    |     Kyle Edriel Tomagan

Staff Leasing in the Philippines is one of the fastest and most affordable offshoring options available, giving you an English-speaking back office in a country that boasts a technically skilled and diverse talent pool, advanced infrastructure, and low offshoring rates. In fact, you can build a back office in the Philippines at a lower rate than Full Outsourcing and without incorporating a business entity.

How Does Staff Leasing Work?

Companies from the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Europe basically lease employees and services from a Staff Leasing provider. The client chooses a qualified candidate that has been screened and shortlisted by the service provider. Because of this efficient employee selection process, companies of every size and industry see Staff Leasing as one of the best outsourcing options.

But there are specific steps that Staff Leasing providers in the Philippines follow. The steps are:

1.) First Consultation


Client meeting with a Staff Leasing Consultant


Upon contacting the Staff Leasing company, one of their consultants discuss your company’s talent needs. During this initial discussion, the provider coordinates with you on requirements and time-frame. The service provider will then prepare job descriptions for all needed positions, subject to your approval.

2.) Proposal

After the requirements are defined, the provider sends you a proposal that includes the projected costs of hiring and maintaining your dedicated staff and other crucial details.

3.) Contract Agreement

After accepting the terms and conditions of the proposal, you meet with the service provider for the contract agreement. This will include full non-disclosure and non-compete agreements, along with payment and service terms. Once signed, the recruitment and hiring process begins.

4.) Employee Recruitment

The Staff Leasing provider’s recruitment team begins searching for candidates that fit the job description. Using multiple sourcing channels, they check each prospect’s personal background and employment history.

Every applicant must pass two tests: a general knowledge exam and an English test. Depending on the position, other tests may be given to test the candidate’s aptitude. Those who pass are then interviewed by an HR Manager.

5.) Employee Selection

After the recruitment team shortlists qualified candidates, their resumes are forwarded to you for review. The service provider schedules interviews over different mediums (phone, Skype, etc.) between you and your preferred applicants.

If requested, your service provider can advise/assist you in making a decision on which applicant to hire.

6.) Implementation

Once you’ve chosen your dedicated employee, the Staff Leasing provider will setup a conference call between one of their consultants, you, and your dedicated employee. After this meeting between all parties, a start date will be set for your new offshore employee.

7.) Employee Evaluation Period and Management Support

There is a five day evaluation period to determine if your new employee is the right fit for the position. If you feel that he/she is not qualified, the service provider will find you another employee free of charge.

Throughout the entire employment period, the service provider will assist you in managing your dedicated staff in any manner.

The entire process takes a minimum of 2 weeks and a maximum of 3 months, depending on the scope of the your requirements. Compared to other offshoring options, Staff Leasing is simply the quickest way to build a back office in the Philippines.
