Should you Offshore

But first, decide whether offshoring is for you.

Only you can decide whether using an offshore staff member or small team is right for your business. Saving up to 65 to 75 per cent on the total cost of expanding your business is alluring, but you must base your decision on more than the bottom line. Work out why you want to use offshore staff and what offshoring success will look like in your business, and then build these aspects into your business strategy. It’s this considered approach to offshoring that gets the greatest results.

Some businesses see offshoring as a way to get rid of their mess, thinking that their offshore staff and their offshoring service provider will sort it all out for them. This approach doesn’t work and is more likely to make problems worse.
