The imminent economic slowdown that is being predicted may seem like the world economies will once again go into a tailspin. There is only way to survive the financial holocaust – outsourcing. It helps organizations to save costs, increase performance and productivity, and retain a competitive edge in the market. There is no reason to suppose that the recession will change things. Rather on the contrary.
There is good news and there is bad news. The bad news is that the threat of another economic recession is looming large. The good news is that there is a way to beat it – by outsourcing.
Outsourcing may just be the panacea to beat the evils of the global economic meltdown. And that is why the outsourcing industry will continue to grow despite the recession.
So, how will outsourcing help an organization to not get negatively impacted by the storms of recession?
1. The advantage of cost savings will be the biggest draw. One of the main reasons why companies outsource their business functions is to avail the benefits of cost savings – lowered operational costs, employee maintenance cost, and a host of other overhead expenses and no payment of taxes in the country of residence.
2. Outsourcing to a remote staffing company like VirtualEmployee.com has the added advantage of having a dedicated, full-time employee work for the organization. Contracting with freelancers may not be the best thing during an economic meltdown as there is always an element of risk involved. However, working with a virtual employee, who operates out of the controlled office environment of a service provider, can prove to be a huge asset in economically trying times.
3. Work does get hampered if it is outsourced. Often forced lay-offs mean a significant slowdown of an ongoing project. When work is outsourced to a vendor thousands of miles away and at a fraction of what it would cost back in the home country, such concerns about the timeline become irrelevant. This is because the outsourcing vendor’s employee will do the job they have been assigned to do and, recession or no recession, your work will be completed and delivered.
4. There is no pressure or compulsion to lay off people. By already having achieved substantial savings because of outsourcing, finances have not been as depleted as they could have been otherwise.
Recession may be looming large but if companies continue to outsource, there is every chance that they will beat this economic slowdown as well.
