Call Centers in the Philippines care about quality and for the most part, compensating their workers properly. This is not often the case with call centers in India.
Indians only care about Cheap Labor
For the most part, Indians are comprised of people who look to the West for inspiration and people to emulate and shortchange their very own people. Cheap labor is something Indians tend to exploit and the same is true in a call center setting or whether they are regular Indian businesswomen and men looking for freelance staff on Upwork.
You cannot gain much from cheap labor, and though the Philippines also has corrupt BPO’s, for the most part, call centers in the Philippines compensate their workers properly.
Indians are yes-women and yes-men
In India, most of the workers are yes women or yes men, they tend to agree with everything you say and while that can be wonderful for projects with very stringent parameters, you cannot get any creative output from people who merely agree with your requests.
You want call center staff who also have their own ideas, their own experiences and their own creativity to bring to the table if your practice is to succeed.
Indians have a heavy accent
In inbound call center services, you want people who have either an American, or a neutral accent in order to communicate things more clearly to customers. Filipinos have a highly Westernized culture and there are many who can emulate an American or a Neutral accent or even a British accent if you require them to! These are some specialties you cannot just find in India because of the accentuated way they speak.
That said, unless you’re looking for low-quality, cheap quality output, then go ahead and outsource to India! Or find a freelancer.
If you want to grow your global team though, it’s necessary to find a high quality outsourcing office.

The Philippines call center services bring a booming economy
The Philippines call center industry is what gives the middle class and lower class people a chance to thrive in terms of not just making a living, but thriving and earning supervisory positions, sales savvy and social media dominance because of the variety of inbound and outbound call center services and serviced industries in general.
The Philippines has a young workforce with Western inclinations
The Philippines has a young demographic with Western inclinations. And while India no doubt looks to the West for guidance and inspiration, the Philippines is filled with literate, college graduates who are well capable of emulating an American, neutral or English accent all for the taking.
