Retrain Your Mind – Think Outsource

Retrain Your Mind to Outsourcing

Retrain Your Mind – think ‘Outsource’

For instance, how many employees do you have?  How big is your office space?  These questions used to be considered the way to gauge a company’s success.  Big had to get bigger.  Multiple offices a must!  Now it is the reverse.  Smart working practice by outsourcing enables companies to employ less people whilst enabling hot-desking or remote working.  In other words by lessening overheads your profit will be greater.  Because of this you will have a greater spend on growing the business!  Retrain your mind – think ‘outsource’.

Outsourced Sense

Back office operations are generally never a core function of any organisation.  By their nature, they are secondary functions.  So why not outsource these functions to companies who ‘play to win’ in those areas?

In today’s highly competitive digital age a new and innovative approach is needed to achieve better business outcomes. Moreover to strengthen your position you need to be backed by a team of efficient ‘outsourced’ providers.  As a result you and your team can focus on your key competencies.  Retrain your mind – think ‘outsource’!

Any function that is not your central success strategy could be someone else’s!

It makes sense!  The only reason, before the digital age hit us head on, that outsourcing was not considered was logistics.  However now with remote access to internal systems no function cannot be outsourced.  Therefore which areas are best suited for your particular business?  This is the question.  Like any aspect of business, outsourcing takes continual work and refinement, but it is now commonly understood that it is one of the most powerful business enhancements out there.

Two areas that spring to mind are IT and HR.  For instance, IT is recognised as ‘an outsourcing norm’.  However, HR is still primarily considered an internal necessity.  But why?  As a result of outsourcing a department you will achieve the following:

  • More space
  • Less overheads
  • Less headaches
  • More profit!

In effect you are getting expertise at a fraction of the cost of an internal employee.

In the case of IT OSL recommends:

Sapien IT

Because of the expert knowledge of Sapien your business can focus on growth.  Additionally by outsourcing this function your overheads will be less and your profit more.

Again in the case of HR it is obvious.  Impartiality is essential.  Moreover a non-biased independent body is great when marketing for job applications! Because of this this area will see growth on a rapid scale.  It is just a matter of time.
