The top 5 motivations of the Philippines workforce
Filipinos will prioritize asking questions and place importance on understanding the rationale behind tasks or projects. When it comes to communication and making decisions, Filipinos are convinced by what can be seen and observed, focusing on the here and now, and what is practically relevant. Filipino people also have a strong preference to gradually and incrementally improve and make changes over time, while being driven to consistently check information, understanding, and results for quality and accuracy multiple times, especially if there is uncertainty.
The lowest 5 motivations of the Philippines workforce
Filipinos generally have lower motivation for disruption, working alone uninterrupted, following routines, being convinced by conversations, or focusing on the problems rather than the goals. This tells us that Filipinos prefer to respect values and customs, are less likely to be energized working from home, have a low need for routine, and may become demotivated without clearly defined goals.
Entrepreneurship and innovation
According to our F4S Research White Paper (2016), it is critical for successful early-stage ventures to be future-oriented, own their personal power, not shy away from radical changes and evolve over time. Filipinos demonstrate alignment to these motivations, with ideal levels of focus on the Future, Power, Difference, and Evolution.
The Philippines’ working population's motivation scores indicate that the Philippines is especially suited for business building and aligned to the success of mature-stage ventures. In terms of profitability, business longevity, and success in obtaining investment, the Philippines' working motivations match many of the motivational trends observed in our research.
