In this age of evolving technologies and business models, the taboo around outsourcing is finally disappearing. For a couple of companies though, even now, understandably, moving offshore begets downsizing but, for a lot of others out there seekin’ cost-efficiencies, outsourcing employees is like Harry Potter’s magic wand. A swing of the wand in the air and you’ve already shifted the company’s core duties to the team sitting offshore waiting for your command. All this at reduced investment obviously, while boosting the effectiveness of the business.
So no doubts outsourcing employees for your business’ core operations can always bring in improved productivity and loads of savings. The catch, however, is that it should be done intelligently. In this blog, we explain to you the benefits of outsourcing services against traditional business models. Here we go:
All right! One of the most common yet significant reasons why most companies take the outsourcing route is obviously pay advantages that the other country offers. For example, an IT business in a country like Australia will have to shell out not anything less than a fortune for its in-house IT employees. On the contrary, outsourcing an employee for the same business can prove a way cheaper option that too without compromising on the quality of the delivery.
You don’t just pay salaries to your in-house team for a particular business operation. There are other expenses too that come attached onboard with your team. For example, you gotta have work stations, phone systems, stationaries, desktops, laptops, coffee vending machine, electricity, and the list goes on and on forever. It all calls for investment. HUGE INVESTMENT!
However, outsourcing employees from an IT outsourcing services in Australia doesn’t really require to bother about these expenses at all. Expenses like these that come with an in-house employee are actually taken care of by the outsourcing company you have gotten into a contract with. All you need is to pay just a fixed amount monthly as per the contract and you’re good to go for a walk on the beach.
Hiring in-house experts for an operation that is kind of periodic such as renewal intelligence, which requires attention once in a year or, may be, twice to say, and paying them a decent salary over all of it can burn a hole in your pocket. On the contrary, the employee of an outsourced company brings an expert specialization, decent market knowledge, and a wide range of sector specific experience that will of course benefit your company in many ways and, more importantly, save your money.
Reduced risk of liability
Penalties for the slightest of business mistakes by companies in countries like Australia can be extremely torturous sometimes. In that context, placing the responsibility of an employee with an outsourced company is an intelligent step. For any particular mistake in the business, you don’t have to lift the burden of the liability. Here the liability obviously lies with the outsourced company.
