The Development of Nearshoring in Peru

The COVID-19 pandemic prompted a change in how people worked in the country, moving from face-to-face to remote work. This presented an opportunity that nearshoring companies have taken advantage of, as remote work has become increasingly popular. 

English is required in many universities in Peru to get a degree and graduate. This requirement benefits companies seeking to employ Peruvian workers because they have a better command of the language, thus improving their performance in English-speaking nearshoring companies. American companies have been able to position themselves within the Peruvian labor market because it is now much easier to find employees who can communicate in English.

On the other hand, the United States and neighboring countries can expand to Peru given that Peru’s time zone is (UTC-5). This makes it possible for them to nearshore software development and other activities, as the employees work in the same time zone, which minimizes communication and coordination issues. 

Nearshoring companies from neighboring countries also benefit from using this strategy because it reduces recruitment costs and investment in office space is not required when working from home. Furthermore, more and more people are willing—and even prefer—to work from home. 

Nearshoring in Peru: Benefits to Peruvians

The benefits of Nearshoring to the companies and their customers are important. But, since the companies are outsourcing in Peru, the Peruvian workers and their welfare is also important. 

ILO’s report on teleworking in Latin America & the Caribbean demonstrates how well remote work, including outsourcing opportunities brought to Peru have been received. More than 20% of Peruvian workforces have been working remotely.

Opportunities have been created all over Peru’s labor market. But these remote work and outsourcing opportunities have tremendously benefitted skilled workers and professionals, especially university graduates. It has provided an opportunity for workers of all ages and occupations, which assist in people moving out of their lower income positions. 

Conclusively, nearshore outsourcing in Peru is beneficial not only for companies from neighboring countries such as the United States but also for people who are interested in jobs offered under this employment design. Additionally, nearshoring companies offer unique work experiences, as the possibility of working with people from different countries is much higher. This allows rich cultural exchange as well as unique and interesting perspectives that help to bolster the company’s organizational culture.
