Faith Perez from Affordable Staff and welcome to our RAW sessions around outsourcing.
With our business operating from Australia and our managed office within the Philippines, we’ve created these series of videos for businesses that have considered outsourcing and would like to get hands on experience of our staff here in the Philippines.
Today for a bit of fun we’re going to test our staff’s knowledge around Australian slang words.
None of our team have been prepared in advance so this should be interesting 🙂
