Why a Filipino caregiver?
The Philippines is very cheerful, friendly and joyful in Japan, and has a tradition that can't be seen in any other country. Not only are Japanese language skills important to nursing work! People from other nations are highly motivated to develop their jobs, but lack compassion and entertainment.
As a national policy, the Philippine government is encouraging migrant workers. We also focus on the development of human resources with 230 kinds of vocational training provided at vocational schools across the Philippines. Around 10 million workers are working as migrant workers abroad (OFW) or around 10 percent of the population of The Philippines. They are present across 130 countries. More than 10 percent of GDP is reflected by foreign currency returned to the Philippines and is practically a key industry in the country.
Migrant workers in overseas countries face many issues, such as high placement fees, violation of labor contracts, and mismatch with skills and jobs. The Philippine government has developed a licensing system, an accreditation system for employers outside the country, a blacklisting of malicious companies an intergovernmental coordinator and a reporting system for employers performing illegal acts and malicious agencies on several occasions.
While Japanese language is not the only requirement, caregivers can interact well with health-care professionals, residents and patients, while getting few feedback and gaining skills quickly. The good care workers from the Philippines work hard to become good caregivers from Japan!
