Case Study

How Satellite Office helped Professional Advantage to scale its offshore team


Professional Advantage (PA) helps business clients with business intelligence, digital workplaces and cloud services. They have over 5,250 man-years of employee service over the past 30 years and have worked with over 6,000 clients and completed over 4,500 projects in the past 10 years.

Our Solution.

Professional Advantage engaged Satellite Office to manage their team transition process. The team understood PA’s business and staffing needs and focused on sourcing the right talent to support their plans to double their business. Thanks to the quality location and facilities provided by Satellite Office, PA was able to attract and retain top talent. The recruitment experts at Satellite Office were dedicated to finding the right candidates for the team. Both companies worked together on an office fit-out that was tailored to PA’s unique requirements. To maintain close collaboration, the management team from Australia visited the Philippines office on a rotating roster. A monthly budget for social activities was provided to staff, and teams took turns choosing an activity to promote good team culture.
