RECRUITMENT AGENCIES’ FUNCTION IN THE EMPLOYMENT INDUSTRY

The recruitment industry of the Philippines has gone through several transformations throughout the years. From deploying a volume of Filipino men to construction sites and oil rigs in the Middle East until the boom of domestic and care-giving roles across the world, the country is known to be one of the biggest service exporter countries. As per this day, there are more than 10 million Filipinos working overseas. This is evident as more countries and employers still hire Filipino workers for quality of performance in the workplace.

Throughout the years, several issues regarding illegal recruitment have made the headlines, leaving a bad reputation for the recruitment agencies. Issues regarding practices like charging of excessive fees, misrepresentation during the recruitment process, contract substitution, and unauthorized withholding of documents. In effect, people are distrustful with how agencies operate and how they get business from employment.

Good thing is there is a way to prevent someone from being a victim of illegal recruitment. This is by verifying the recruitment agency’s legitimacy. It is possible through the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) website: http://www.poea.gov.ph/cgi-bin/agSearch.asp and its job order validity through: http://www.poea.gov.ph/cgi-bin/JobVacancies/jobsMenu.asp. But how do legitimate recruitment agencies actually work?

What is a Recruitment Agency?

Recruitment agencies are firms that find candidates for employers.  They deployed over 90% of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW). The agencies intermediate with employers looking for Filipino talents and candidates in the Philippines. Recruiting manpower takes a huge amount of time and resources. They search for candidates matching the requirement of the employers, identify qualified people, screen and conduct background checks, and process the documentation of the selected candidates for deployment.

What is the Recruitment Process?

The recruitment process begins with the job order containing the job description and specifications from the employer. Recruitment agencies then, source for suitable candidates for the roles. Once the employer finds good candidates, then the agency will arrange interviews with them.

Job offers will be provided to the selected candidates after successful interviews. And then the processing of the candidates begins. This includes medical examination, securing of requirements, processing of visas, and obtaining necessary clearances.

What is the Advantage of Applying to Recruitment Agencies?

A highly regulated industry is what international recruitment is
in the Philippines. Strict compliance to documentary requirements is crucial to the deployment of a candidate to the overseas placement. Legitimate recruitment agencies help both the candidates and the employers in meeting the requirements needed. They ensure that the candidates are fully aware and agree to the terms of their employment. At the same time, they assist the candidates with the necessary documentation to legally deploy them.

Going above and beyond in service, Rensol Recruitment and Consulting, Inc. adopted the business model of not collecting fees from workers. This means that Rensol does not collect placement and processing fees from the candidates. It is among the few agencies to commit to International Labor Organization (ILO) fair practices of total prohibition on collecting fees from all job seekers as part of the company’s brand and identity.

He was given three days sick leave but because of his will to work for his family, he still came in for work but his supervisor prefers him to rest on the side while in the workplace.

Apart from being sick, he experienced anxiety, homesickness, sleeplessness, hunger, and some family issues way back home.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, March 13, 2018 – Alongside Rensol Recruitment and Consulting’s mandate to uphold the welfare and interests of overseas Filipino workers, the agency fortified its current efforts by strengthening its connections with the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO).

Mutuc Jr. – Supervising Officer & Head of Employment and the rest of POLO Dubai to consult the current condition of the overseas employment program and to consolidate the present challenges being faced by Filipino workers in the region.

Mamaclay also took note of how advanced and how convenient their automation on processes, and how they stick to their obligation to ensure the implementation of labor policies to all expat workers within that territory.

POLO Dubai, on the other hand, expressed enthusiasm upon learning that Rensol is still a non-fee charging recruitment agency and that it continuously advocates ethical and fair recruitment among all their deployed candidates.

Dubai, aside from being one of the richest cities in the world, is also a top job destination for OFWs. It is home to the largest population of overseas workers in the United Arab Emirates. With a minimum salary of US$400, Filipino talents are distributed to construction, engineering and architecture, cargo shipping and tourism, retail, hospitality, marketing, real estate, telecommunications and information technology and healthcare industries.
