Contracting vs Full-time Staff Outsourcing

contracting vs. fulkl time outsourcing

Contracting or hiring the right type of employees is a critical component in the growth, expansion and success of any business. The costs of hiring, recruitment and onboarding, however, are expensive and they don’t always result in the outcomes you expect.

The alternative to hiring new employees locally is outsourcing, a model that has quickly gained traction over the past 10 years. Many companies, whether small businesses or large multi-nationals, outsource a large proportion of their non-core tasks to third party companies. Why do they do this? What are the benefits of outsourcing vs in-house hiring, and when is outsourcing more beneficial than contracting new employees to work in-house?

Why is outsourcing so popular?

Outsourcing means that you delegate some or all of your non-core activities to a third party. Generally, this third party is in the same country as your business, but it can be located overseas, when it’s called offshore outsourcing.

There are many benefits to an outsourcing model with the biggest advantage being that it saves your company a significant amount of money. It can, in fact, save up to 75% of the recruitment, hiring and onboarding costs, when compared to hiring locally.

Another benefit is that outsourcing gives you access to an extensive pool of highly talented professionals who have the experience and drive to help your company expand and grow. The ability to save money and have easy access to a large range of specialists can’t be undervalued, particularly in a highly competitive market where expertise is difficult to find.

What are the benefits of outsourcing vs in-house hiring?

One of the reasons why many people believe that in-house hiring is better than outsourcing is the belief that your in-house employees will be more reliable and dedicated to your business than someone working remotely overseas. That person will likely work for multiple clients and won’t have your goals as their priority.

When you partner with Outsourced, however, all your offshore staff work full-time for your company and are dedicated to your goals. This is one of the reasons why we are one of the leading providers of offshore outsourced staff in the Philippines. We understand your concerns and have built a solid reputation for providing you with the dedicated staff you require and the control over their work you demand. This gives you the confidence you need to hire a team of remote-based employees.

That’s why we don’t offer small project based outsourcing, where people work on multiple projects or for multiple companies. We know you want dedicated staff and that’s the basis of our business model.

When is in-house hiring better than outsourcing?

In-house hiring is a suitable staffing model when you need new people to perform your company’s core tasks or when your in-house staff are too busy with non-core tasks to complete their core tasks. It’s also suitable when you want complete control over specific tasks or projects and personally prefer to keep your employees on-site and physically close.

Outsourced, however, can help you build an offshore team of reliable, dedicated, professional and highly experienced people who can comfortably liaise with your in-house team and work towards the same goals. If you want a team of committed specialists to help your company grow and expand, whether locally, nationally or internationally, then partnering with Outsourced gets you one step closer to your goal.
