What is Outsourcing?
Outsourcing is the business practice of hiring a party outside a company to perform services or create goods that were traditionally performed in-house by the company’s own employees and staff.
Outsourcing is a practice usually undertaken by companies as a cost-cutting measure. As such, it can affect a wide range of jobs, ranging from customer support to manufacturing to the back office.
How do you start outsourcing and what are the factors that you will need to take into account before choosing the right company?
In-House Versus Outsourced
Outsourcing yields significant savings in overhead costs, allowing the freedom to allocate more budget towards reinvesting in business growth. In many cases, outsourced agents work directly with local teams as a normal extension of their departments. Any tasks that are able to be completed remotely can be outsourced.
Outsourcing also helps companies grow with ease, eliminating the hassle of hiring (especially when teams need to grow by 10+ people). The worst situation is when you finally find a good applicant, provide necessary resources for them to succeed, only to have employees that don’t last and must be replaced. From there the process restarts and this can be very costly in the long run. Any business owner will tell you the headache of high-turnover and how it can hold back scaling.
