Multinational corporation Dexcom Inc. said it will outsource hundreds of jobs intended for Americans to facilities overseas, particularly in the Philippines. The plan comes as the firm announced earlier that it would lay off some 350 American workers in San Diego, California, and Mesa, Arizona, citing the high costs of labor in the United States. Among the divisions that will be hit by the planned layoffs are customer service, sales, and tech support workers. Confronted with what it considers to be high expenses on wages, Dexcom is determined to outsource some of its business operations to the Philippines and other regions of Asia, even as it boasts of huge sales figures and quick company growth. Despite the move, Dexcom chief executive Terrance Gregg will still be paid an annual salary of more than USD3m.
