Outsourcing and globalisation of manufacturing allow companies to reduce costs, benefits consumers with lower cost goods and services, causes economic expansion that reduces unemployment, and increases productivity and job creation.
— Larry Elder
Goal-oriented organisations are always on the lookout for cost-effective and efficient opportunities to complete tasks and projects successfully. Tasks are outsourced to create more focus and resources for core activities.
The following are top tasks to outsource today:
Cleaning/House Keeping: Outsourcing your cleaning is really the best way to go; this is because it costs less and frees up resources for important tasks. You do not have to worry about the intricacies, you basically pay for the service and the job gets done.
Delivery: Some logistics companies that handle all forms of deliveries charge as low as a thousand naira. You do not have to go through the trouble of traveling long distances or even leaving important work pending to pick up or drop off items. All you have to do is outsource the task to a logistics company, sit back and have it delivered to the recipient.
Graphics and Illustrations Design: People outsource graphics and illustrations because such tasks have to be done by creative specialists/professionals. This saves cost and provides immense value to the person paying for the task(s) by way of getting topnotch designs that will resonate with the target audience.
Digital Marketing: The digital footprint of a company is as important as many aspects of its business. Every organisation must have a visible social media presence. Individuals/organisations without expertise in digital marketing outsource this task to get impactful and quicker results.
Recruitment: An organisation with the right workforce is certain to perform better and stay ahead of its competition. Hence, recruitment of employees should be handled carefully by top-rated professionals with adequate resources, expertise, and tools to attract and hire the best candidates.
Procurement: Today, you can buy both perishable and non-perishable items online and have them delivered to your doorstep without having to go through any hassles. Many outsourcing vendors now offer this service. Apart from helping you get your goods at a bargain, they free you up to focus on more important aspects of your business.
Virtual Assistant: Having a virtual assistant grants you an efficient employee that saves you cost; no health benefits, bonuses or taxes. Virtual assistants handle email management, schedule management and other duties of a physical assistant.
Website Design: Having an amateur handle your website leaves your organisation prone to a lot of risks that could lead to bankruptcy/fraud. Outsourcing the design/management of your website is cost-effective; you get efficient results of high quality and impressive turnaround time.
