To date, there are approximately 1.1 million Filipinos who have decided to work as freelancers, telecommuters, individual consultants or service providers, out of a country with a population that has reached more than a hundred times that number.

This new working class is composed of digital natives, who are tech-savvy and prefer to continually explore their career options, instead of just settling down for one for the long haul. Flexitime, mobility, and work-life integration are as sacred to them as stability and job security are to their parents and older siblings. Throw in a high level of fluency in English communication skills and other core competencies valued by employers who outsource work for cost-effective reasons. All those factors combine to forecast a huge growth potential for Filipino freelancers in Asia.
