Personal Safety and Nearshoring: Your Chance to Shape Perceptions of Latin America

A Nearshore Americas survey aims at seeing past perceptions to get to first-hand experience

Personal safety is a slippery issue in our industry. While some U.S. outsourcing customers shake with terror over the prospect of traveling to any number of major LatAm/ Caribbean outsourcing hubs, others look at such visits as virtually identical to traveling to Dallas, Miami or Los Angeles – major cities in the Americas where crime does exist but has little to no impact on conducting business.

Knowing that personal safety is – at the end of the day – a  personal issue, we have decided to launch our first-ever reader survey on this vitally important issue. Whether you are a regular reader or casual follower of Nearshore Americas, we urge you to participate in our survey. What’s most important to us is hearing from people who do business in Latin America and the Caribbean.

In other words, the Latin America ‘safety’ agenda can be defined by the reactive interpretations of popular media, such as CNN, or through the voices of those who actually do business, stay at hotels, dine in local restaurants and interact with local folks.Which lens do you want Latin America to be seen through?
