WELCOME TO FILSCANDIA!!
Filscandia Manpower and Recruitment Services, Inc (Filscandia) is an advocate of training and recruiting globally competitive workers and personnel for foreign employment. It envisions itself to be a leading human resource deployment agency of integrity and facility in the Philippines where the supply of competent nurses, paramedical and other medical professionals, technical and skilled, hotel and resort and other related services workers has been recognized the world over.
Filscandia is a Filipino diligent worker in spirit, and a global citizen by delivery in flesh. It was conceptualized to supply with quality and precision the demands of its clients. Highest productivity is not just a set goal but a quantifiable end for Filscandia, and this further advances its perspective of setting up offices in Luzon and Mindanao to locate itself more geographically strategic and accessible to every Filipino.
Filscandia was accredited/ recognized as a domestic corporation with Company Registration Number CS200728198 by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on June 17, 2007. After its incorporation, Filscandia complied with its obligations on registration fee, income tax, withholding tax, and percentage tax. It was duly registered with the Bureau of Internal Revenue on November 15, 2007 with Tax Identification Number (TIN) 255-128-764-000 and Official Certificate Number (OCN) 2RC000085896. It received its license to operate a recruitment and placement agency on January 11, 2008 from the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) through the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) under number POEA-004-LB-010808-PL with Serial Number 009222.
Based in Iloilo City, the center of medical and paramedical education in the geo-political area labeled Western Visayas or Region VI, Filscandia is accessible to both the northern and southern parts of the country, the maximum vital origin of migrant medical and paramedical Filipino workers and other professional, technical and skilled workers.
Filscandia intends to utilize to the utmost the potential deployable number of produced human resources of the area in the region where hundreds of nursing and paramedical schools are effectively operating. It focuses on the Iloilo City-based West Visayas State University (WVSU), the number one nursing school, St. Paul University (SPU), the number two nursing school, and the Central Philippine University, the pioneer nursing school all of the Philippines. It is now covering as a source of nursing professionals the other Iloilo City-based University of San Agustin, University of Iloilo, Iloilo Doctors’ College, and other paramedical schools offering practical nursing and care-giving courses. It deems its base location optimal even in its inception as all the aforementioned schools have been producing topnotchers in the Philippine professional nursing licensure examinations.
After making a thorough and concrete evaluation on the proven-to-have-delivered operations of the dozens of review centers for National Council Licensure Examination – Registered Nurses (NCLEX) and Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), and other review centers for nursing profession-related English language essential examinations in Iloilo City alone, Filscandia has asserted its base location as a practical advantage.
Fislcandia is highlighting the same base location as a another practical advantage as it is in the city where the regional offices of national government agencies such as the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), Technical Skills Development Authority (TESDA), and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE). These agencies are directly governing and regulating the training, recruitment and deployment of nursing, paramedical and other professional, technical and skilled workers. Recently, the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) represented by its regional director signified its intention to make Filscandia a priority deployment agency for the graduates of its foreign-job oriented training programs.
Concerned with maintaining legal integrity, which it considers a premium in the labor, personnel and human resources training and recruitment industry, Filscandia has retained the services of the Jacela, Geduspan and Parcon Law Offices with office address at YMCA Annex Bldg., Iznart St., Iloilo City.
Filscandia considers training and recruiting nurses not only as business but also an act of socio-economic philantrophy. It has completed the plan and is preparing for the implementation of a scholarship program for less privileged but deserving students. These students will be thoroughly screened and tested to prove the excellent Filipino tradition of nursing services which has been internationally recognized and has become a national economic asset and cultural pride. The scholarship program will be more innovative to make it more sustainable. It will not simply trace the dole-out system. The program will pursue a system of consistency by applying the policy of a foreign-based working Filipino nurse to sponsor a scholarship for one to five nursing students. By adopting and practicing this concept, Filscandia will ensure a continuous supply of this internationally highly demanded Filipino human resource.
Moreover, to make the training, recruiting and employing process less tedious and less difficult to prospective workers, not like what is usually carried out by other companies in the industry, Filscandia promotes a no placement fee policy, thus, making it client friendly. It wants to help the less fortunate and underprivileged members of society realize and actualize their dreams by giving them the opportunity to financially grow and develop.
NETWORKS FOR DEPLOYMENT FACILITY
Quick but quality and reliable deployment is a principle that makes Filscandia novel and distinct in the industry. It has started and is about to finalize network partnerships with mass media outfits particularly the radio networks and the newspaper publishers for its information, education and communications (IEC) program. Building partnerships with the mass media will further assure the integrity which Filscandia considers a guiding principle. The mass media, also referred to as the “fourth estate”, has been popularly accepted by government to be an equal branch in the check-and-balance principle of good governance.
Socio-economic philantrophy, partnership with the mass media and the no placement fee concepts are trademarks of Filscandia, which make it a corporation of the contemporary and future generations.
Filscandia has always recognized the fact that the Philippines, aside from being a primary supplier of highly competent nursing and paramedical professionals in the international market, is also a primary supplier of other professional, technical and skilled workers. It has already completed the blueprint for the expansion of its deployment program which includes among others medical technologists, caregivers, welders, industrial cleaners, hotel and restaurant staff and construction workers.
Originally setting its eyes on the Scandinavian market, it is now exploring the expansion into its soon-to-be-covered market in the United States of America, Australia, Canada and countries in the Middle East and Europe, rendering itself to be comprehensive and precise in its market analysis.
MULTIPLE CONVERTIBLE SKILLS
Another salient and distinct feature of Filscandia is its consideration of the multiple convertible human resource supply. Filipinos have been proven to be very productive in having primary, secondary and even tertiary jobs. Filscandia is capitalizing on this as both an asset and additional potential. The training, recruitment and deployment of personnel will deal with a primary, secondary and tertiary skill to utilize the flexibility of the Filipino worker. This principle will provide a single ready worker for a double or triple demand gap in the international human resource market.
RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT AND MARKETING
The highly innovative but realistic and relevant principles of Filscandia are a product of its continuing research and development efforts which study significant trends in the local and international human resource supply-demand correlation and market. Research and development is carried out by a section of expert consultants who are nationally and internationally acknowledged, educated, trained and practiced social systems scientists. Finally, it is envisioned to market the internally-trained health professionals in Western Visayas to the needs of the Scandinavian health career.
