MicroSourcing acknowledges that for the socioeconomic development of the Filipino people, it is essential to give people access to decent work.
"Decent work" is defined by the International Labour Organization (ILO) as work that provides equal opportunities for all, pays minimum wage, delivers job security, and provides a stable income to families. It should also give people the right to express their concerns and be able to engage and participate in matters that affect their lives in one way or another. Through our Careers Program and our Back-to-School Program, we are actively enabling decent work to those in our society who sit at the bottom of the pyramid.
MicroMissions Careers Program
The Careers Program is founded on the objectives and ideologies of Impact Sourcing, a sub-field of the outsourcing industry that creates long-term BPO employment opportunities to individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. The objective being to make a talented individual ready for a full-time job in the outsourcing industry:
We give our clients the option to use the Careers Program as an alternative channel for sourcing talent. Our client partners can opt to take on interns and train them on work processes and other requirements. During the internship period, MicroSourcing funds the interns' compensation. After an agreed timeframe when clients decide to absorb their interns as full-time employees, the model transitions to the standard terms for offshore staffing.
MicroMissions Back-to-School Program
Our Back-to-School program is an extension of our Careers Program which gives out-of-school high school graduates an opportunity to take on college education at local universities. MicroSourcing identifies highly talented individuals who for financial reasons could not complete their college education and then provides them with a scholarship that enables them to go back to school. After graduation, they can flow into our MicroMissions Careers Program with the end goal of completing the cycle and obtaining full-time employment.
Hear from one of our established clients who started with one intern but ended up hiring a total of four graduates of the Careers Program.
