When you think about it, individuals and companies outsource every day. When we hire a lawyer, accountant, plumber, electrician, or any other services that we as individuals or organizations don’t have the requisite expertise; we “hire-out”, or outsource.
Why do companies outsource?
Here are some common reasons:
- Reduce and control operating costs
- Gain access to expertise not available internally
- Free internal resources for other purposes/projects
- Improve efficiency
A common misconception about outsourcing is that it takes the place of a current employees work. To the contrary. Most often, outsourcing provides much needed assistance to an employee, department or division in need of expertise or work load transfer.
Of course, before you outsource, you have to determine if your organization has a need. HR Ally will work with your management team to determine where efficiencies can be found, and assist in formulating the processes needed to meet your objectives and goals.
