New technology is advancing in an unbelievable pace and is changing every facet of our lives including the way we work.
There was a time when communicating with someone in the next state, much less with someone halfway around the world, was dodgy at best and the post was the most reliable means of getting your message across. These days, businesses run their entire back office operations remotely with the team located in a different geography and timezone but that’s not all. All manner of business solutions are now being outsourced such as staffing, finance services, online marketing, and creative services.
Businesses found that it was more cost effective to outsource non-critical tasks to countries with a lower cost of living than their own resulting in bigger margins, improved flexibility, and access to a larger pool of talent. The trend shows no sign of slowing and promises to get even bigger in the years to come.
Does this mean that the days of the in-house team is over? Most certainly not.
There will always be a need for people on site especially when it comes to the core business. Outsourcing merely allows businesses to improve flexibility and enable companies to take advantage of emerging trends and markets. The best thing about it is that, contrary to popular perception, outsourcing is not something just for big multinational conglomerates.
It’s quite accessible as well to small to medium size businesses.
