A new and exciting initiative was launched this week aimed at linking global companies to Lebanese professionals in the digital, technology, creative, finance and other fields. The [Lebanon Outsourcing Initiative], launched by Bridge. Outsource. Transform (B.O.T), will offer “optimized directory that connects expert Lebanese skillsets powered by freelancers, agencies and companies, to global organizations and professionals seeking specialized services”.

BOT is the first socially responsible outsourcing platform in the MENA Region that provides Data services executed by a managed workforce of more than 2,000 Freelancers from low-income communities. B.O.T is supported by community members and global organizations including AlFanar & LIFE and is powered by UNICEF Lebanon & DOT Lebanon.

Why outsource to Lebanon?

By presenting the outsourcing capabilities of Lebanon to the world, professionals and businesses globally can benefit from accessing a highly-skilled pool of talent, in creative, HR, finance, digital, software, data services and web and app development sectors, amongst others. Through the platform, companies will be able to tap into a network of high-quality service providers based in Lebanon, to benefit from price competitive rates.

I really hope this idea picks up as it will be hugely beneficial to the economy and will open up opportunities to the Lebanese.
