TAKING THE STIGMA OUT OF OFFSHORING
30 October 2015, Written by Jenna Rathbone
AIMEE and Mark Engelmann are eliminating the stigma associated with offshore staffing, proving it is a great way to grow business and create more local jobs.
The husband and wife duo have been rewarded for their efforts, taking out Trailblazer of the Year at the Brisbane Young Entrepreneur Awards.
The founders of Beepo, a company assisting Australian businesses successfully outsource to the Philippines, say they don't aim to dent the local employment market, but instead establish more skilled jobs in Australia.
"In our previous business we had quite a lot of failures and challenges with offshoring in the Philippines and it was through that experience that we identified a gap in the market there is not really anyone in Australia that is doing it very well," says Aimee.
Beepo's message appears to be gaining traction with the business reporting significant growth during its 17 months of operation.
"Basically if can be done in front of a computer, it can be done at Beepo," says Mark.
