Why You Should Outsource

“Today, outsourcing is not just a trend; it is an integral part of how smart companies do business. A company concentrates on its core business and relies on outsourcing partnerships to get the rest done.” — Harvard Business Review.

There is a reason 94% of Fortune 500 companies outsource at least one major business function, outsourcing helps organisations cut their expenses and gain the much needed flexibility and competitiveness they require to focus on their core business.

In Nigeria, most organisations, especially in the three most economically vibrant sectors; oil and gas, telecommunications & IT and financial sectors use outsourcing services. Little wonder outsourcing has become an important and strategic business model in present day Nigeria.

In today’s market, businesses are confronted with unprecedented challenges such as economic uncertainty, intense competition and rapidly changing consumer behaviour. Organisations are continually juggling their core competencies with other business functions, thereby resulting in distractions and avoidable dissipation of energy and resources that could otherwise be channelled to more productive ventures.

Therefore, there is the need for more organisations to embrace outsourcing, if they must cope with the myriads of challenges they are constantly faced with.

A careful look at the goals that your organisation would like to achieve this year or in the near future will reveal that these goals can only be achieved with adequate support of excellent partners. This is the difference between the most successful companies in Nigeria today and the strugglers across different industries. Modern business does not require that you own all the facilities and resources required for production. Smart businesses leverage the resources and capabilities of reliable partners; and Outsourcing is the business model that makes that happen.

Outsourcing keeps you focused on your strengths; your area of expertise while also putting your mind at peace because your non-core functions are being taken care of by partners who possess the required knowledge, skills, culture, resources and experience to deliver.
