Why Are Employers Hiring Filipino Maids?
Maids from the Philippines or Filipino Maids remain a top popular hiring choice compared to their counterparts from Myanmar, India, Sri Lanka and Cambodia.
Firstly, there are many Singaporeans who prefer to hire a helper who can speak basic English for ease of easing their domestic helper into the job. With easier communication from the onset, many Singaporean families choose to hire a maid from Philippines as it is believed that they can speak basic English, to easier understand and familiarise swiftly with Singaporean employers’ home care needs.
In addition, due to the warm nature of the culture of Philippines, Filipino maids remain a top choice, with many employers choosing a Filipino migrant domestic worker to care for infants or children. Their friendly disposition and warm nature also eases them more easily into their caregiving role.
Thirdly, a lot of Filipino Migrant Domestic Workers (MDWs) are known to be more willing to provide care to infants and children. Their ability to converse well with children is also have believed to help younger children take to them more quickly and easily.
All maids from the Philippines have to go through nationalised basic training from their country before their arrival in Singapore. Migrant Domestic workers from the Philippines must undergo training administered by the country’s Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA). This particular training programme ensures Filipino helpers are able to perform fundamental household duties and with this, Singapore Employers are also reassured that basic standards are maintained in terms of training of their Migrant Domestic Worker.
