Outsourcing is one major area of Human Resource that would lift a huge load off your shoulder. In this write up we present to you 6 benefits of outsourcing to you and your company but before that what do we really by outsourcing.

What Is OutSourcing?

Outsourcing is a business practice in which a company hires another company or an individual to perform tasks, handle operations or provide services that are either usually executed or had previously been done by the company’s employees.

The outside company, which is known as the service provider or a third party, arranges for its workers or computer systems to perform the tasks or services either on-site at the hiring company’s facilities or external locations.

Here at Rakes, we look after Outsourced personnel working to the Employers stipulated terms and conditions including the generation of Invoices, Payroll, SSNIT/ PAYE.

Rakes works in partnership with clients to tailor solutions to their needs. Rakes ensures the right staff are ready for the Employer by undertaking a rigorous screening process

Benefits Of Outsourcing

1.Skilled Expertise

A business may want to outsource a task is when it requires skilled expertise. To allow you to focus on your core mission in providing a high-quality product and service to your customer offshoring the task to people who can perform it better makes sense.

Allowing the client to focus on core objectives

Outsourcing allows the client to focus on their core mission while we do the work.

2.Staffing Flexibility

When you outsource certain independent tasks, it allows your business to maintain financial flexibility when there is an uncertainty in demand. You can scale up or down comfortably. At a much lower cost, outsourcing provides an additional benefit of running your business in even during the off-season and holiday months.

3.Better Risk Management

Outsourcing will allow you to share any associated risks with your outsourcing partners thereby reducing your burden. For example – by outsourcing to a competent outsourcing partner you reduce the risk involved in having the same task done in-house by staff that may not be as competent in that field.

4.Increasing in-house efficiency

After you allocate tasks to your outsourcing partner, they share the workload of your employees. This allows you to develop your internal task force and use them more efficiently and increase productivity.

5.Reduced operational costs

When you outsource services like Logistic s / Warehouse Managers, Factory Hands or Labourers you are getting access to quality services that are offered at a much lower cost. Maintaining an infrastructure can be an extra burden for some businesses, which outsourcing can remove.

6.Give your business a competitive edge

The ultimate benefit of outsourcing is that it helps your organization gain a competitive edge in the market. Through strategic outsourcing to an outsourcing partner, you are not only providing your customers with best-of-breed services but increasing your productivity while managing your in-house resources intelligently. Outsourcing can help you surpass competitors who have not yet realized the benefits of outsourcing.
