Employee Outsourcing is considered by many small organizations as a cost-effective alternative to traditional way of employee hiring, as it relieves the expense and administrative burden put upon business. Organizations often resort to practice of employee outsourcing when they are not yet able to afford hiring full-time or even part-time employees. It can be described as a practice of engaging remote workers who are employed by special companies providing outsourcing services, so these firms take care of all the tedious employment and administrative issues including trainings, payroll, benefits, compensation, insurance, tax reporting and supervision of workers.
Outsourced employees may sometimes visit sites of the companies which they work for (if a job requires this), or they may work in a completely remote manner, utilizing modern communicational means (Internet and teleconferencing), so you don’t have to provide them with desks and any office space. These outsourced services usually comprise everything which is not needed on daily basis, but is very important to a company from time to time, for example:
- IT functions (maintenance of software, hardware, networks, servers, etc);
- Accounting, tax management and other finance-related services;
- HR functions: recruitment, payroll and secretarial services;
- Call Centers and customer service/support;
