MonsterPhilippines, a leading online career and recruitment solutions provider, announced the launch of its “Return2Home” initiative, which targets non-resident Filipinos residing abroad looking at returning to thePhilippines.
Created to reach out to the overseas Filipino population who wish to explore opportunities within their homeland, the new initiative reflects thePhilippinesgovernment’s ongoing commitment to provide skilled employment opportunities for locals as part of a diversified and sustainable knowledge-based economy.
According to MonsterPhilippinesinternal research, there has been a 47 percent increase in the traffic of people authorized to work in the country between January and December 2010. Leveraging its global footprint, Monster.com will target and connect with Filipino jobseekers from theUnited States,United Kingdom,Canada,India, and the rest ofSouth East Asia, connecting them with the opportunities that exist in their own country.
The Return2Home initiative will also target employers looking at hiring locals from across the globe. It is poised to help employers attract the right talent who have the relevant global experience, domain knowledge, and are also culturally aligned.
Commenting on Monster’s latest initiative, Sanjay Modi, Managing Director forIndia, Middle East andSouth East Asia, says: “As an aftermath to one of worst global economic recessions, economic restructuring and downsizing was witnessed across the globe. Against such a dynamic environment, the strength of emerging economies was repeatedly tested, which not only demonstrated economic resilience but also an upturn in its growth trajectory. However, with government promoting the return of Non-Resident Filipinos, the country presents a huge opportunity for corporates looking at hiring locals in and outside ofPhilippines.”
“Against this background, Monster has launched one of its ambitious initiatives,” discloses Modi. “Combining its superior technology, global network, customer equity and first mover advantage, with the launch of Return2Home we aim to strengthen our dominant position in thePhilippinesrecruitment market,” he ends.
