Submission + - The #1 Reason Why Your Filipino Employee Disappeared (youtube.com)

rosieannemayers writes: "One of the biggest problems I encountered when outsourcing to the Philippines was I had employees that disappeared all of a sudden and I couldn't, for the life of me, understand why. It took me a while to understand that its mainly a cultural thing and there's something I can do to prevent this from happening again.

Filipino VAs are not mind reader. They can't predict what I want and I can't assume that they know what I want just based on the job description. I also have to be as specific as possible when I want something done. It's part of the process of training them.

Sure enough, my efforts paid off. Eventually my VAs were able to understand what I wanted. All that time I spent training finally paid off. I was finally able to replace myself in business and have more time for myself."
