Outsourcing is all about finding a creative way to solve your workforce issues.
What is outsourcing - hiring someone or a company to perform a task or manage a responsibility to support your company
Outsourcing is not for everyone - if you are super controlling or a micro-manager this is not for you
Outsourcing requires you to function in a predictable way
Processes need to be clear
Documentation needs to be available
Outsourcing requires patience - for some strange reason we forgot how patient we have to be with in-person employees and somehow we lose that same sense of patience when the person is remote
Outsourcing can be in person or remote
In-person you hire a contractor that works with you
Your hire a person that works elsewhere
Benefits of outsourcing:
Cost vs hiring internally
Expertise - you don’t have the time to train someone internally
