Outsourcing advantages: Increasing company productivity

Outsourcing is a practice used by different companies to reduce costs by ‘outsourcing’ or transferring labour to an outside supplier or provider. If used properly, it can be a highly cost-effective strategy due to the fact that it can be comparatively more affordable to source work or supplies externally, especially via overseas offshoring. This can be an incredible advantage to Information Technology companies, mainly due to the most significant benefit: the availability of abundant IT resource. The fact that IT is a universal code allows outsourcing to be an unlimited strategy.

That said, countries where close collaboration with your provider is possible, which can present one of many outsourcing advantages through similar time zones and cultural similarities is beneficial and can increase project productivity and management flow.

How to increase employee productivity – the easy way

employee productivity

When a company takes on a new staff member, they have certain expectations concerning employee productivity. It is not unreasonable to assume that if an employee is hired to work 30 hours per week that they will actually be productive for the entire 30 hours.

With worker productivity however, there is not a direct relationship between the number of hours a person is employed to work and the resulting outputs. Yes, the greater the number of hours an individual spends at work, the greater the expected outcomes, but these expectations are not always achieved.

Issues with performance management are not only a concern for in-house staff, but are also important when a company begins to explore remote staff work environments. This can either occur because the company is expanding and opening up smaller satellite offices around the country or in situations where employees spend a lot of time on the road or even working at home.

This problem with expectations surrounding employee productivity, in the main concerns situations where there is no robust supervision of their work. To be more specific, workers in controlled situations where they have to keep up with a production line or the entire process screeches to a sudden halt, clearly have to maintain a certain level of productivity at all times.

Concerns with employee outputs, tend to be more focused within industries where this control does not exist and productivity is not so easy to measure, for example with office workers. It is easy to see that just because someone is sat at their desk, this does […]

Outsourcing Examples - What is outsourcing?
What is outsourcing and what are the benefits of outsourcing for your business? Can this strategy really help your business to cut costs, whilst at the same time help grow your business and increase your profits?

Many business owners are unsure about outsourcing and veer away from integrating this strategy into the operating structure of their company. This is a shame however, because the benefits of outsourcing can be quite profound for both small and large businesses.

The BPO industry (business process outsourcing) is fast becoming a booming industry, but what exactly is the drawcard and is there really a positive payoff for business owners, if they embrace this strategy within their company?

The rapid growth in outsourcing companies

In today’s rapidly moving marketplace where every dollar counts, business owners, now more than ever, need to keep a tight rein on their budgets. Every additional employee can exert a huge drain on a company’s budget and resources, so any cost-cutting strategies, which also help to improve a business’s output is like a panacea from heaven.

Outsourcing is one of these strategies that helps a business to cut costs and improve their bottom line, because it allows an organisation to fulfil their obligations to their employees and to their clients, whilst at the same time, keeping their overheads under tight control.

This strategy has the potential to free up valuable time within a company, so that more emphasis can be placed on creating strategies not only for future growth, but also to help expansion into areas outside […]

How offshoring to the Philippines can have a positive effect on local employment

In a recent paper “Does offshoring reduce industry employment?” it was found that offshoring has no effect or a slight positive effect on local employment.

It may be surprising for some, but cost cutting is often not the main driver for offshoring. Almost two-thirds of recent survey respondents said their primary objective was to expand their overall team. Reports have shown that nearly 80% of businesses using offshore resources had retained or increased their local staff (with the average increase in their domestic workforce of more than 200%).

Offshore outsourcing is fueling business growth for SMEs and leading them to invest more in their onshore and offshore staff. Leading companies are focusing less on the cost savings alone from offshoring and focusing more on the total service improvements possible by growing an offshore staff. These service improvements allow them to increase sales, grow as a company and also increase their domestic workforce.

By using affordable staff offshore companies are able to reinvest the savings to grow other divisions of their business. Actually the large productivity gains and increased sales as a result of offshoring are creating new local jobs which are completely offsetting the jobs lost from the original offshoring.
