  • How much does an offshore employee cost?

    To calculate labor costs and assess savings using the salary calculator, follow these simple steps:

    1. Select the job role you're considering offshoring. You may choose as many roles as possible at once.
    2. Choose your business location (e.g., Australia, United Kingdom, etc.).
    3. Click “Generate Results.”
    4. Review estimated costs for local versus offshore hires.
    5. Compare the offshore to local costs to understand potential savings.
    6. Use the insights to decide on your staffing strategy.

    You can modify parameters for different scenarios to find the best option for your business. Take note of these:

    1. By default, the calculator generates the annual figures. To view the monthly costs, select the Monthly Salary option.

  • Is hiring in the Philippines cheaper because of low-skilled workers?

    The lower cost of hiring in the Philippines doesn’t indicate lower skill or qualification levels. The country boasts a highly educated and skilled workforce across various fields like IT, finance, customer service, and administrative support. Competitive pricing for offshore staffing services is a result of low cost of living and government incentives, rather than a reflection of the quality of work. Many businesses worldwide offshore staff to the Philippines for cost savings and access to a talented pool of professionals capable of delivering high-quality work.


  • Aside from cost savings, why should I hire in the Philippines?

    Hiring offshore workers offers several benefits beyond cost savings, including access to a highly skilled talent pool, the ability to operate across multiple time zones, and the opportunity to scale your workforce quickly and flexibly. Additionally, it can lead to increased diversity within your team, which can enhance creativity, innovation, and problem-solving capabilities.

  • What are the hidden costs associated with offshore staffing?

    While offshore staffing can be cost-effective, hidden expenses like recruitment fees, legal compliance, and quality control can emerge. To mitigate these, conduct thorough due diligence when selecting an offshore staffing provider, clearly define the scope of work and expectations upfront, and ensure transparent communication about all costs involved. A detailed contract can also help avoid unexpected expenses down the line. At Penbrothers, we offer transparent pricing plans—free from hidden charges. For transparency, we provide our clients with full access to the cost structure, including salaries and operational expenses.


  • How can I manage unexpected expenses related to exchange rates in offshore staffing?

    To manage exchange rate fluctuations, consider setting up fixed-rate contracts in your home currency for the predictability of expenses. Keep a buffer in your budget and regularly review and adjust financial forecasts. Some companies also use financial instruments like forward contracts to hedge against currency risk.


  • What payment methods do you accept?

    We welcome payments via wire transfer from clients globally. For those based in the Philippines, we accept cash, check, and wire transfer payments.
