Placement and aftercare of workers from the Philippines

With our high quality Filipino recruitment and aftercare service, you can overcome the problems caused by labour shortages!


Unfortunately, day to day we are experiencing the extreme labour shortage we have to face in the Hungarian labour market. This is primarily attributable to demographic reasons.

According to the data of the Hungarian Central Statistical Office, in the past five years (2017-2021) the difference between the number of deaths and live births in Hungary was around 230,000. Between 2017 and 2021, the difference between the number of retirees and the number of young people entering the labour market shows that the number of new entrants to the labour market has decreased by more than 150,000. There hundreds of thousands of Hungarian employees currently working in Western Europe who are not expected to return to the Hungarian labour market at all. In 2021 alone, more than 200,000 Hungarian citizens applied for residence permits in various Western European countries. Between 2021 and 2031, the working-age population will decrease by around 700,000. These figures are alarming!

To resolve the acute labour shortage, until now companies have tried to employ workers from third countries (mainly from the Ukraine and Serbia). However, it has now become evident that this number cannot be increased any further. We have also witnessed attempts at the employment of Vietnamese, Mongolian and other third-country nationals. Experts are clearly of the opinion, however, that the definitive solution will be to employ workers from India and the Philippines in Hungary.

After 2010, the Philippines became one of the fastest growing economies in the world. It is common practice for citizens to work abroad in order to support their families, and this greatly contributes to the country's GDP. Filipino workers not only speak fluent English but also have excellent skills and an ideal work ethic. They are characterised by reliability, diligence and a respect for rules.

Filipino workers are perfectly capable of coping under European and Hungarian conditions as well.

What is the advantage of a Filipino workforce?

The loyal and hardworking nature of Filipinos makes them an ideal workforce. They can do their work efficiently and quickly and are highly respectful because of their strong social hierarchy. Family is a very important value for them, and they work abroad not only to improve their own financial situation and career opportunities, but also to provide a higher standard of living for their families.

Low fluctuation

The work permit is valid only in Hungary and for the given company, so the possibility of fluctuation is low.

Language skills

In addition to their mother tongue, they are also fluent in English, so there is no need to spend time or money on language courses.

Attitude to work

They work reliably and diligently, are thorough in their work and highly observant of rules, as well as being very respectful.
