Pros of Outsourcing
Better Management. When everything is done in-house, there is a huge possibility that some core competencies are not given as much attention as needed. But if you outsource activities that are routine, administrative or require specialized skills, you can focus more on core functions and ensure that your company thrives and succeeds.
Cons of Outsourcing
Impact on Company Culture. If you don’t take the time to integrate outsourcing and make sure that your in-house team is on board, you could potentially harm your company culture. However, steps can be taken to make sure that everyone understands what outsourcing is doing for the business. Integrating is essential. For example, many of our clients include their Virtual Assistants in daily huddles and weekly meetings to ensure that they are in sync with the rest of the team.
Lack of control. The fact that you are not physically present in an office with someone working for you can be daunting for many people. This is one major misgiving we initially hear from our clients. Hiring the right company with things in place to give you peace of mind in this matter is a solution for that. There are several types of software/programs that can be used to monitor work as well as protocols that can solve this issue.
There are many pros and cons of outsourcing, all of which you should carefully consider before deciding for or against this strategy. With the ability to affect company culture, this isn’t something to take lightly. It all begins with a clear picture of what you want and need and thorough research to ultimately find the kind of people you need to benefit your business.
