About Gone Global
This episode of the OA podcast follows a different format as Outsource Accelerator CEO Derek Gallimore introduces the Gone Global newsletter.
Gone Global focuses on “the use case of global employment for offshore staffing and outsourcing.” In circulation for a few months now, it “has a fantastic open rate” and over 30,000 subscribers to date.
The newsletter is divided into three sections:
- Thought piece that features the topics written by Derek himself; According to him, most of these topics can sometimes “stir the pot.”
- Top talent where OA features some of the top Filipino talents in the market
- Knowledge where OA reviews four articles from major publications that discuss “all things employment”
This episode features one of the editions of the Gone Global newsletter, delivered in podcast format.
Thought piece: The tight labor market
The thought piece highlighted in the Gone Global newsletter discusses the tight labor market, particularly in developed countries such as the US.
Per Derek, people claim that offshoring “is stealing jobs and ruining economies.” However, he suggests that offshoring “simply opens up a localized market into a global one.”
Despite developed countries having low unemployment rates, their small towns can still “experience extreme cases of labor shortages and surplus” resulting in high unemployment. Opening up to a global market gives them access to a “broader community” of 8 billion potential workforces.
Recently, Canadian fast-food chain Freshii was in the spotlight for “hiring front-facing employees in Central America” for their virtual cashier. This move has “drawn criticisms” from the public and the Canadian government itself, calling outsourcing cashier jobs “outrageous.”
Despite these drawbacks, Freshii is still “doing what it needs to do” to expand and keep its customers happy.
Top talent: Jose and Danny
The Top Talent section aims to “highlight the incredible professional caliber of people available offshore.”
The labor crunch affecting developed countries creates a domino effect on businesses, the market, and the economy. Offshore staffing prevents this effect and creates opportunities for everyone to grow.
