Top Ten Reasons to Outsource/Freeing Up Internal Resources

7.) Freeing up Internal Resources: People are becoming higher commodities in a difficult financial environment, and your company needs as many good people as possible to focus on what really matters. By outsourcing non-core activities, your company frees up time and capital to move the business forward.

Freeing up internal resources that could be put in to effective use for other purposes is also one of the primary benefits realized when you outsource. If you have a large project that needs to be undertaken and requires skills that your staff does not possess, outsourcing of the project will bring people with the skills you need into your company. Your people can work alongside of them to acquire the new skill set. Well-managed outsourcing can enhance the development of employees. Two strategies can accomplish this:

1. Contractors can be used to off-load less interesting “commodity” orend-of-life work, or to handle peak loads. This leaves staff free to pursue new, developmental opportunities. On  the other hand, contractors should never be used to perform new, growth-oriented activities while internal staff is left with obsolescent work. This would deny staff learning opportunities, while building dependence on the vendor. Perhaps worse, it sends a message to staff that the company is not willing to invest in their professional growth.

2. Audix can be used to bring in new ideas and to train internal staff. Audix professionals can transfer their skills and methods to improve employees’ effectiveness; they teach staff, often while working together on real projects. Audix consultants may be used by anyone whenever justifiable, since the benefits are lasting.

Example: Not only has Audix taken repetitive, mundane tasks and automated the tasks for the client, but we have also worked closely with our client’s employees to help them determine what tools and methods they can implement to save time and money.
