MANILA, Philippines - A Melbourne-based online company prefers Filipino employees for their "superb work ethic" and "high skill levels."

"From our experience, Filipinos offer a superb work ethic, excellent communication skills, a great command of English, high skill levels and great value!" David Jenyns, Melbourne SEO Service chief executive, said in a post on the firm's website.

Jenyns said Filipinos start as outsourced personnel for the business and when they perform well, are eventually asked to become full-time employees.

"[Insourcing] is where you bring the best outsourced contractors in-house as part of your permanent team. Melbourne SEO Services, for example, has a team of Filipinos that are featured on our website and add huge value to our business," the Australian businessman said.

Jenyns added that his company tries to hire only "A Players" who are high-performers.

He also admitted that hiring Filipinos are cheaper than hiring fellow Australians.

"Because of geo-arbitrage we can pay them a higher salary than they would normally get, but a fraction of what it would cost to hire an Australian," Jenyns said.
