What Is Outsourcing And What Does This Mean To Your Business?

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.

3 Tips to Make Offshore Staffing in the Philippines a Success

1. Communication Is Key

Regular communication with your offshore staff will result in better outcomes. We recommend our clients have daily meetings with their staff to ensure open communication about the status of current tasks. This status update allows you to keep track of progress, become aware of potential challenges and coordinate efforts to resolve difficult or time consuming issues.

outsourcing communication

Following agile management processes, meetings are best kept short and to the point. Less than 15 minutes should be adequate. Three key points to discuss are:

  1. What did you accomplish yesterday?
  2. What will you do today?
  3. Are there any obstacles impeding your progress?

Video calls with your offshore staff are free and simple. Outsourced staff are provided with high quality headsets and have access to the best technologies to ensure there are no limits to your communication with them.

2. Give Them Training

Offshoring Philippines

People can (and do) get easily confused with all the terminology; offshoring, outsourcing, remote staff, employee leasing, internal outsourcing, offshore staffing, co-employment, external outsourcing, captive outsourcing, hosted staff, offshore staff leasing, offshore outsourcing, etc.

So what is “Offshoring”? Offshoring is simply the relocation of a “business process” from one country to another. Philippines Offshoring is thus the process of employing staff in the Philippines (as an alternative to your home Country) to complete a business process (eg Web Development).

Demand for Philippines Offshoring services is growing at over 30% per year (faster than India). This is largely due to the Philippines being the 3rd largest English-speaking nation in the world with a culture that is very compatible with Western society. Also Filipino professionals are very service-oriented and hard workers, and the Philippines has an advanced western university system (The Philippines graduates over 37,000 IT graduates annually from internationally recognised Universities).

The Philippines was actually named three times as the `Offshoring Destination of the Year` by UK body National Outsourcing Association.
