'Expatshoring' links businesses in the US and Canada with highly qualified expats living abroad - allowing savings of at least 50% in staffing costs
Nelson, British Columbia (PRWEB) June 06, 2012
The new term expatshoring, created by TeleworkingExpatsForHire.com, implies all the benefits of ‘nearshoring’ but with the extra advantage of working with highly qualified colleagues who have the same accent and shared cultural linkage. Millions of qualified North Americans choose to live in Mexico and TeleworkingExpatsForHire.com is the only company to link these expats with businesses in Canada and the US. Expats enjoy the benefits of furthering their careers while also earning above average local wages.
“I am so lucky to be working for a company where the job is challenging and rewarding and every day I learn something new” says Carly Sandoval, who moved from Canada to be with her husband in Mexico.
By utilizing virtual staff located in neighboring countries businesses can save at least 50 per cent of their staff expenses while still retaining a high quality of service.
“An office assistant in North America can cost a company $35,000 in base salary expenses, and up to $65,000 once you factor in office space, payroll taxes, computer equipment and supplies. But employing a highly qualified expat in Mexico is only around $27,000 per year - it’s a huge cost saving for any business” says John Leishman, Director of TeleworkingExpatsForHire.com.
Expatshoring is made possible by the innovative approach to teleworking and technology that is utilized by TeleworkingExpatsForHire.com. As well as finding a suitable expat for their business clients, they enable the workings of a virtual assistant by arranging file sharing software and the latest technology in VOIP/Telecommunication software for the expats to make and receive phone calls on behalf of businesses located in North America.
The capacity for virtual expat office staff is limitless – from receptionists to salespeople, marketing experts to lawyers – all can be supplied by the expat community abroad. Rather than an office full of people, businesses owners now have a world full of people at their fingertips; all connected instantaneously via technology and who can bring savings of at least 50 per cent. Businesses owners now have the ability to expand their visions without the associated expansion of costs.
