Net increase to their bottom line
- Your company will have the potential to increase its productivity as a result of reduced turnover of staff, less time wasted training new staff and as experienced by many of our clients, an improved work ethic.
- Filipino employees have a proven track record of being hard working, reliable and associate well with co-workers and managers.
If the total upfront placement cost of each worker is amortized over the 4 years of their visa it costs just $2,500 a year to employ a Filipino worker over and above an Australian worker, that is being paid the same salary – any length of time they stay over 4 years and most of them do, is a bonus on the deal.
Yangwha Australia has successfully sent thousands of skilled Filipino workers to hundreds of Australian companies. Our clients range from large multinational firms doing business in Australia to successful privately held and family run businesses. They come back to us again and again.
The Filipino work ethic, the widespread use of English as one of two national languages in the country and the naturally friendly nature of the culture make Filipino 457 workers their first choice for their manpower needs. The committed performance of these workers often raises the performance level of the entire workforce as reduced absenteeism and a strong work ethic driven by their desire to support families back home produces excellent employees.
With our careful screening processes, testing and proven ability to navigate Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) requirements for Standard Business Sponsorships, nominations and visa applications we are able to deliver a consistent level of excellent service to deliver skilled workers and follow up on their integration.
Yangwha Australia provides recruitment services and our sister company Yangwha Visa manages the visa process, giving employers a single point of contact and accountability for the process.

“As our business got busier, we tried adding a night shift. We had nothing but problems-workers sleeping on the job, drug and alcohol use and absenteeism and we were forced to cancel it. As we added Filipinos to our workforce we tried again and this time it was a success and we used a Filipino foreman. We are well pleased.”
“When I hired my first Filipino worker, my foreman was skeptical about it. After six months, he came to me and said, “I’ll take a shed full like him if you can get them.”
