Filipinos have been engrained and trained to keep up with the pace of the West, which has honed Pinoys into a tough professional bunch who are always up to the challenge.
The hospitable culture of the Philippines has made the Filipino worker compliant and easy to work with. Filipinos are also known to rarely ask questions. Most even prefer to follow their superior’s instructions. Although they are not very vocal about venting their opinions, most Filipinos have a good eye for detail and are more than eager to get their jobs done. As a business owner, your part of the bargain is to provide them with details and they’ll make sure that they’ll get the job done perfectly.
A lot of Filipinos can stay with a company for many decades. They are known to be loyal, especially if their bosses show them respect and they are treated well. Filipinos are also known to treasure good relationships with their team mates and this makes them more loyal to the company they work for.

Because of that, the workplace is full of good vibes and positive energy, which may even rub off on you.
