A Guide to Business Outsourcing

What is Business Outsourcing?


Business Outsourcing is the process of delegating a company’s business processes to third parties to reduce labour costs.

Outsourcing is the process of strategically hiring employers from offshore or near-shore countries to perform tasks that are traditionally given to external staff.

Why do businesses outsource?


The main reasons for business outsourcing include:

  • Lower operational and labour costs
  • Risk Management
  • Improved Performance
  • More resources for core business processes
  • Ability to downsize easily

Whilst offering advantages, business outsourcing has some inherent disadvantages. When outsourcing various functions, the company often has less direct oversight and control of the product or services it’s purchasing, which can threaten the relationship between the company and its customers.

The most common problem with outsourcing is communication.  Outsourcing overseas can lead to language barrier issues. Security issues, such as keeping company information private can also arise.
