We all know that for a company to run like clockwork we need two things. Systems and Staff!
A huge amount of time goes into buying software and hardware to make those system and procedures work effortlessly however without the right staff the cogs will eventually cease to work.
Your IT and systems need to right staff to run, look after and maintain them. Regardless of your business the fundamentals are the same.
Our 7 reasons why outsourcing staff may be the right choice for your business:
NUMBER 1: Get an Expert Every Time
Interviewing is a huge part of what outsource recruiters do and they are experts in selecting the qualities needed in the right candidate. Good recruitment is not only based on the needs of the job role itself but also the needs and the ethos of the company that outsource staff member is being supplied to.
NUMBER 2: Less HR Hassle
Having a team of IT staff brings a plethora of administration tasks from staff holidays to possible sick time off. With an outsource team looking after your systems there is no need to worry about losing staff time, they take care of that and ensure that you always have enough team members to cope while ensuring that they are fully looking after the welfare needs of your team at the same time.
NUMBER 3: Staff retention isn’t an issue
Hiring and training IT staff is expensive. It’s inevitable that staff change and move on. A good outsource company removes not just the cost issues that losing key members of a team can cause. They ensure the smooth running of the business as they can always replace staff with members of their extended team.
NUMBER 4: Faster team set up
If you have ever recruited you know how difficult it can be. You need your team leaders in place first, then they get involved in choosing their team. The next step is the team needs to learn to work together and all of this takes time. With Outsourcing the teams are used to selecting the right people and in many cases a team will be a familiar set of faces.
In an ideal world, every team is perfect every time, in reality that is not the case. The same happens in outsourcing. If you are ever unhappy with any part of the team that member can be replaced with a team member who fits your company needs better.
NUMBER 5: Flexibility of staff when needed on demand
Sometimes you may need more or less staff than at other times. You may require additional hours, staff, running times. This can be tricky especially if it’s on a temporary basis. Not when you Outsource. When needs get more demanding you can bridge the gap providing 24/7 cover if needed or just a few extra members of staff for a specific task.
Another common scenario is that a smaller job needs to be done that is outside of the skill set of your existing staff / outsource team. With access to an outsource partner the right team member can be found for a specific task reducing the time taken on that task and removing any unnecessary risk associated by using someone without the correct skills.
Upscaling and downscaling can become simple and straighforward.
Number 6: Lower Overall Cost
The costs of acquiring a staff member can be large. You have the cost of recruitment fees, your time going through the candidates that the recruiter passes to you. Interview time and the dreaded scenario that the staff member just didn’t work out. Team that with some of our previous reasons and you can see this really is a viable option to reduce your costs all round over hiring an in-house team.
NUMBER 7: Leaving you to focus in running your core business
This has surely got to be the best reason of all. Now, we are not asking you to forget about your outsource team. We need you to be taking an interest in them, they are your people too and one day if that member works really well with you they could become one of your internal team. (You don’t need to outsource everything for ever!). Your business will have it’s core aims for growth – by removing another system you need to micro manage you can utilise your team on the ground to be working on the success of your business.
