HLE Nepal is a Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) company that specialises in working for Australia and the global mortgage industry. Our primary client and owner is the Home Loan Experts, one of Australia’s leading mortgage brokers.
The fact is that most offshoring and outsourcing service providers just don’t deliver. Primarily this is because of indiscriminate hiring, poor training and cultural differences.
We’ve taken a fresh approach.
Our staff is carefully selected from the best candidates. While their education is important, we place a stronger focus on hiring people with real world skills and proven abilities. As such, all potential staff need to pass through an extensive background check, skills test and trial before commencing their employment with us.
Each staff member is trained in the basics of running a business and how to work with their manager effectively. This includes the business basics such as process improvement, creating manuals and problem-solving skills.
The difference is that our staff can effectively manage themselves rather than just doing their job. For mortgage industry staff, we can provide additional in-house training to ensure that they fully understand the industry and can perform high level duties.
Larger companies often lack basic culture training in their offshore offices. As a result, there are regular communication problems and culture clashes which cause significant rework and frustration for everyone.
By understanding each other’s culture and having clear communication guidelines, our staff can perform at a much higher level than a standard staff would be able to.
