Managing Your Outsourced Offshore Team

How Employee Outsourcing Works

With the rise in remote working and digital technology for businesses, outsourcing employees is becoming more accessible and favorable for companies worldwide. Employee outsourcing involves hiring someone via a third party to carry out a specific role typically done by a company employee. This blog post will examine how employee outsourcing works and some benefits it can provide business owners.  

How Does Employee Outsourcing Work? 

Employee outsourcing can be simple and effective if you work with the right company. The ideal third-party partnership for efficient employee outsourcing relies on trust between all parties, the expertise of the outsourced employees and the company hiring them, and honest communication.  

Once a business manager has decided to outsource an employee for a specific role, they then need to decide which outsourcing company is most suitable for them and discuss their requirements for the role. The outsourcing company will source suitable candidates, screen them and compile a shortlist for the company manager to review and personally interview them. If the business manager meets a candidate they want on board, they let the outsourcing company know, and they will then offer the candidate the role and manage any necessary background checks and paperwork. When a candidate is ready to start the role, the business manager must onboard them remotely and support them by allocating a ‘buddy’ or an in-house team member. After the onboarding process, the employee outsourcing company handles everything else, including staff management, payroll, and employee compliance.

Just to summarise the employee outsourcing process:

  1. A company manager contacts an outsourcing organisation about a new role
  2. Outsourcing organisation shortlists suitable candidates for interviews.
  3. The company manager interviews candidates and informs the outsourcing company if they want to bring someone on board.
  4. The outsourcing company makes an offer to the candidate and handles the joining formalities, background checks, and other similar processes.
  5. The company manager is responsible for onboarding and setting up an in-house team member to support the new hire.
  6. The employee outsourcing company handles the rest, from payroll, performance appraisals, training requirements, and more.

The Benefits of Employee Outsourcing

Employee outsourcing provides a range of benefits to companies and employees alike. The most significant advantage of outsourcing is that it’s cost-effective and helps improve work efficiency. Another reason managers turn to employee outsourcing is to ensure they hire a candidate with specialised skills for roles such as accounting, customer service, graphic design, or IT development.

Some key benefits of employee outsourcing include the following:

  • Access to a broader talent pool
  • Allow specialists to focus on specific tasks while in-house staff manage their work.
  • Competitive advantage
  • Increased efficiency
  • Reduced labor costs
