5 Frequently Asked Questions on Outsourcing

Understanding the concept of outsourcing can be daunting. But the truth is, it’s not that complicated. Here are a few frequently asked questions on outsourcing to help you understand further.

  1. What is outsourcing?
    Outsourcing is basically hiring professionals outside a company to do a task which is normally performed in-house. In the traditional business model, a company would hire an accountant to perform accounting services for the company. In outsourcing, a third-party company does almost everything, from the hiring process to regularly monitoring your offshore staff on your behalf at a much lower cost.
  2. How can outsourcing help my business?
    Aside from cutting your expenses, outsourcing can also help reduce the stress from your employees caused by overwhelming workloads. You can delegate the small tasks to your offshore staff so your in-house employees can focus on more crucial responsibilities.
  3. Can I outsource even though I’m a small or medium-sized business?
    Absolutely! You don’t have to be as big as Google to outsource. Small to medium-sized companies can also take advantage of this business model. The best thing about outsourcing is that the possibilities are limitless. If you own a printing business, you can outsource a graphic designer to do the layouts. Perhaps, you own a restaurant. Maybe, you can outsource a social media marketing specialist to take care of your online presence. Or if you own a law firm, you can outsource an administrative assistant to do all the paper works.
  4. What kind of jobs can I outsource?
    You can outsource tasks that do not require face-to-face interaction with customers. Read here to learn more: https://clarkoutsourcing.com/blog/6-jobs-you-should-outsource-immediately/
