The stakes in the corporate world are always up. On every project undertaken by a business, an abundance of resources is spent. These resources come in the form of equipment, elaborate setup, data centres, software applications, and most important of all, manpower.
Irrespective of how advanced is the technology you are using, how state of art are your tools and equipment, how massive is your overall setup, if you do not have the skilled manpower to use all these resources, you are only going as far as spending all this money in vain.
A skilled manpower is the cornerstone of every business’s success. So every company invests a great in hiring the right people.
Having said that, over the years, the common hiring practices have gone obsolete, simply for the fact that they are not optimized enough to either fulfil a business need, or they add a lot of redundancy in terms of the in-house resources that may be idle for long periods of time, and yet be on the payrolls of the company. It’s a fact not many businesses would like to admit, but every month companies roll out many pay checks against which they haven’t got much value or work done.
And then there are unexpected scenarios – or to put it in other words – crisis situations. You have a large project going on, and an important contributor to the project resigns from his duties with the company midway. All you are left to do is scramble for a replacement, which even in the best case scenario, you’ll be able to find and get involved with the project in not less than 30 days. Add the time that they will take to get accustomed to the project and you have wasted, though unintentionally, serious momentum. You will find enough number of business owners talking dispassionately about such state of affairs. No business is ever spared of situations like these.
This is where the alternate ways to get skilled manpower on board comes into the play, and these include practices like hiring people on contract basis or outsourcing the manpower from companies that collaborate with the biggest of companies by providing them with manpower that work for the client but are on the payroll outsourcing service provider.
The biggest gain for companies collaborating with manpower outsourcing companies is the elimination of the sheer layer of complexities associated with new employments, which they manage to get rid of. It’s common knowledge that for every new employee hired, a company has to incur a truckload of overheads that are related to the paperwork while hiring, the tax calculations, the induction process, the provision of assets (which apparently leads to more sub processes and expenditure) and the allotment of other resources that are exclusive to an in house employee. All these costs are reduced to zero when you have an outsourcing firm providing you the manpower for a specific project. Every overhead is incurred by them. The people working for you on your project are on their payroll, so they are taking care of tax procedures, yearly appraisals, asset management, other resource management procedures and so on. And it’s not just the monetary savings that you are making here, more than that, you as a business enterprise are spared of so much time and hassle. These are too many relevant reasons why manpower outsourcing as a practice is making such deep inroads and finding more and more relevance by the day.
So make a wise business decision if spending money only on the core operations of your enterprise is on the agenda. Outsourcing your manpower needs has benefits both short term and long term, and these surely percolate down to even bigger strategic advantages down the line.
