by

A recent global study about the views of expats currently living in the Philippines with their family echoed the country’s fairly liberal openness to other cultures and nationalities.

Employed by HSBC, the latest Expat Explorer survey, an autonomous consumer research on global expat views, reported that almost 52 percent of people working away from their homeland achieved better personal fulfillment working in the Philippine that in their motherland.

When it came to children, almost half of expat parents indicated that their children took more than six months to feel comfortable in their new environment, with 25 percent saying the adjustment period took over a year.

In the parents’ case, 67 percent disclosed that it took more than six months to feel at home in their new setting while 49 percent said it took them more than a year.

According to Kris Werner, HSBC Head of Retail Banking and Wealth Management, “almost half of expat parents (45 percent) say that they felt like home almost instantly or in less than six months.”

Werner attributed this faster adjustment time to Filipinos having “such a happy, family-oriented culture” which, in turn, prompted for more expats (to) agree that working in the Philippines allows them to benefit from the booming economy” also serving as “a good place to raise a family.”

The survey which garnered 26,871 participants from across 100 countries, is one of the biggest and most extensive international surveys of expats that tackles their perspectives on life abroad.
