Nowadays when almost every task is outsourced, hiring workers on “as-needed-only” basis has become an integral part of almost every business’ day-to-day operation. Thus, outsourcing as a business opportunity has become one of the major industries in countries like the Philippines, India, and China to name a few.
This is inevitable considering the many benefits outsourcing has provided businesses. Not only do companies save money in eliminating the expenses of recruiting workers, they also save time because outsource providers have qualified people available for employment almost immediately. Hiring outsourced personnel frees companies from the obligation of providing the usual benefits accorded to regular employees such as vacation leaves, medical insurance, retirement plans, pensions, etc. These are the concerns of the temporary workers themselves. Furthermore, companies only pay for the productive hours of the outsourced people, unlike in the case of regular employees where they are paid even during their idle time.
