How Nearshoring in the Dominican Republic Can Benefit Your Company


Nearshoring in the Dominican Republic can yield your company with numerous benefits while improving the country’s wavering economy.

Dominican Republic’s Economic Background

The COVID-19 pandemic forced the Dominican Republic into its first recession in nearly 17 years. The fourth quarter of 2020 was difficult as many companies closed, with over 191,273 jobs lost. This particularly affected disadvantaged households, women, and informal workers.

The global shock caused by the COVID-19 pandemic substantially impacted the Dominican Republic’s economy. It produced a significant downturn in vital sectors in the second quarter of 2020. The GDP shrank by 6.7 percent in 2020. It was expected to grow by 5.5 percent in 2021, but it will stay below potential during 2021 and 2022.

For a country that has a high potential for a nearshore destination, delivers top English skills, and is considered one of the safest countries in the Caribbean —nearshoring would not only benefit your company but the Dominican population as well.

Benefits from Nearshoring in the Dominican Republic

Call Centers in the Dominican Republic are often less expensive than BPOs in the United States or Europe. 

Since nearshoring keeps you in the same time zone as your staff, they’re not required to work overtime or at night. This can drastically cut expenses when compared to offshoring. It also benefits your workers because it means a healthier schedule. Your work relationship with them can, in return, be sturdier, as you can keep in touch with them regularly. Being closer to the service provider also means less travel expenses.

Nearshoring in the Dominican Republic also provides you with staff that is highly skilled and multilingual. With a population of 11 million people, the country has one of the greatest talent pools in the Caribbean. Agents commonly speak Spanish, French, English, Portuguese, and Italian. On top of that, the Dominican’s native language is especially beneficial for the increasing Hispanic population within our market.  

Finally, nearshoring in the Dominican Republic makes it easier for agents and clients to communicate and interact with one another not only because of language affinity, but also because of cultural compatibility. With a shared history of 300 years, Dominicans have developed a strong cultural affinity with the U.S. This makes the Dominican Republic an ideal destination for nearshoring.
