Vision

Saiff Solutions exists to make the world a better place. We are committed to our own success, the success of our customers, employees, and partners, and to the future of humanity. Our vision expands our view of the future beyond the mere success of our company, and has five elements:

Technical Writing in the Philippines: Thousands of Filipinos enjoy rewarding jobs and life-long careers as successful technical writers.

Scope of Our Success: By the year 2025, Saiff Solutions revenue has reached US$1 billion per year.

Philippine Business Environment: The culture of work in the Philippines is transformed. Discrimination in hiring and in the workplace on the basis of sex, age, health status, family status, sexual orientation, or religion is rare. Following both the letter and the spirit of employment laws is the overwhelming norm for Filipino and foreign companies operating in the Philippines. Companies value all of their workers, treat them with respect, and see the value of investing generously in their workforce.

Philippine Economic Environment: Poverty is rapidly ending in the Philippines, due to an expanded, well-regulated domestic labor market, consistent economic growth, and well-funded, effective NGOs that succeed in ending poverty by empowering the poorest to have greater opportunity and greater control over their daily lives and their own productivity.

Global Human Environment: Saiff Solutions is committed to the sustainable end of hunger for all humanity. We support The Hunger Project, one of the most effective development NGOs on Earth. The Hunger Project now reaches 25 million people in thousands of villages on 3 continents, empowering communities to together end their own poverty, on a global budget of about US$20 million. One of the reasons that The Hunger Project is so cost-effective is a willingness to directly confront the most important root cause of extreme poverty – gender inequality. Our vision is US$200 million annual funding for The Hunger Project by 2020.

Our founder, Barry Saiff, began volunteering for The Hunger Project in 1981, and has generated over US$2 million for The Hunger Project as a volunteer fundraiser. When The Hunger Project began in 1977, there were 41,000 people dying every day world-wide of hunger and hunger-related causes. Despite more than 50% global population growth (from 4.2 billion to 7 billion people), today 25,000 are dying of hunger. In the last 35 years, humanity has nearly cut in half the deaths from hunger. For the first time in history, it is now possible to end hunger, sustainably, for all humanity, within our lifetimes – by 2030.

We encourage you to explore the short videos and other information at The Hunger Project’s site, and to consider whether ending hunger globally should be one of your most important personal goals.

Testimonials

“Barry [Saiff] has extensive experience both as a manager of technical writers and as a writer. As a manager, he is fair, encourages innovation, and is open to divergent points of view. As a writer, he can grasp very complex concepts and explain those concepts to end user through administrator audiences. Additionally, he has expert knowledge of all components of the documentation process, including corporate style guides, editing, writing, working with localization, and production. Barry is very much a people person and wherever he goes, he cultivates a large network of friendly yet professional relationships. He’s worked successfully with both on-site subject matter experts as well as those across the world. During my time working with Barry, he’s run a number of successful efforts to improve the usability of documentation. In one such case, he recruited a cross-functional team to overhaul the documentation based on the recommendations of this user-facing group of subject matter experts.”
