How do we find you top-notch staff?

The first step on your journey is to book an initial obligation free discovery session with one of the company directors. We’ll see if we’re a good fit and if we believe outsourcing will work for your business.

However with over 600 staff and 220+ clients across a variety of industries, chances are if the role can be done in front of a computer, we already have someone doing that role in our office.

Two Sites in the Philippines

services-img-1

Cebu

The Cebu Office has a total capacity of 600 employees and has been operating since 2012. Cebu is the second-largest city in the Philippines (behind Manila) and was chosen as the first site by the CEO for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the English spoken in Cebu is considered the best in the Philippines, with a slightly “softer” spoken …See More

Dumaguete

Dumaguete was the site chosen for the second office for its proximity to Cebu and the ability to act as redundancy in a worst-case scenario should a natural disaster occur in Cebu. It’s far enough to avoid a disaster to hit Cebu but close enough that it’s only a half-day bus ride (25-minute plane ride).

Dumaguete also has one of the top Universities in all of Asia and has an abundance of highly …See More

Monthly Inclusions

Employment Process

The role of the recruitment team is to shortlist you around 3 candidates per role required, within 3-4 weeks of you submitting the Job Description / order form.

The team will book a time with you to conduct the final interviews, which will be done via Zoom Video call in our office. You’ll have a copy of each candidate’s resume prior to the final interviews, which will be lined up back-to-back for you to choose the right person for the role.

Admin, Sales & Customer Service positions require the candidates to pass an English Grammar test (plus short Essay) whilst technical roles have unique “trial tasks” to assess their competency.

Following final interviews, you will choose the best candidate(s) whom then will give notice if still connected with a current employer whilst we conduct an in-depth background check.
After starting, your staff will be put on a 1-month training / trial period, followed by a further 5 months “probationary period” – which is standard in the Philippines. If you’re not happy with any of your chosen staff members during the first month, we’ll replace them for free.

Level Up Your Team

Delonix Teams Service versus Work-From-Home model

If you want to employ a remote staff member or “Virtual Assistant” in the traditional “work from home” capacity, there are no additional costs outside of their salary. If you can find yourself a reliable VA, and they have a good Internet connection, then this may suit those first starting out in business, and just need a bit of help here and there on a contract basis.

However, if you’re looking to build a team that is critical to your everyday business operations, that has

  • Australian Management & Coaching Support
  • Business Grade Fibre Optic Internet
  • Backup Generator Power
  • Low Latency VOIP Telephone Lines
  • Staff Retention & Social Activites

Full-time IT & Tech support at all times

Delonix has IT staff on hand 24/7 to cater to our clients in different time zones, can assist your staff with any software installation, techy “how-to’s” like converting a pdf document or just exterminate those little gremlins that love to run around inside technology!

VoIP Telephone line

Enjoy crystal clear phone calls via a dedicated lease line just for phone calls. You can be assigned your own local phone number – eg (02) for Sydney, (03) for Melbourne etc so your staff can receive calls. There is no charge to receive calls to your VoIP number. Outbound calls are billed separately

See our VoIP Rates here

Data & Internet Security

All clients are given our Non-Disclosure Agreement, plus all staff sign a privacy and confidentiality agreement before they are employed in our office, giving you peace of mind that your data and intellectual property is treated in strict confidence.

For financial clients, we can also provide a full IT security audit (extra fees apply) as was the case for one of our AMP endorsed financial planner clients.

Our office Internet traffic is controlled with “Sophos” firewall software, which means we can set which sites your team can and cannot access to remove distractions

We also like to be involved with charitable events, whether that’s a day at an orphanage or helping some of those affected by Typhoon Yolanda.

How do you handle Public Holidays?

We like to keep things very easy for our clients, and as such, our policy is:

We often have social events on national holidays like Anzac day in Australia (the perfect time to go Island Hopping in the Philippines) or Independence Day for our US clients. Your staff will love sharing in your local culture on public holidays.

Payments
and Fees

  • Do I really have to pay for my staff holidays?
  • Our Payment Terms
Do I really have to pay for my staff holidays?

Yes – consider it no different to your local staff getting paid holidays. Your outsourced staff are part of your company, your culture and should be no different to your local staff other than physically being located in another office. If you’re asking this question, perhaps you’re better suited to hiring contractors from Upwork to work only on a contract basis.

Our Payment Terms
  • Payment of the recruitment fee begins the outsourcing process (3-6week timeframe)
  • Once you’ve chosen your team, their first month is payable in advance
  • Following the first month, we’ll set up a monthly auto-debit for your Visa, MasterCard or PayPal account If you do NOT want to pay using a credit card, and prefer an alternate means (eg bank transfer) then a security bond of one month is required in addition to the first month’s fee There are no fixed-term contracts, we only require 30 days written notice if you wish to cancel your service. In the unlikely event that you are not happy with a staff member, we will replace them for you during the first 90 days.
