An increasing number of businesses in Britain are recognising
how the financial benefits and specialist expertise linked to
outsourcing can help their firms grow, according to the results of a
Research carried out by leading outsourcing marketplace OutsourceMyProject.com found
that 72 per cent of businesses asked said they had either already outsourced
services to specialist providers, or would consider doing so in the future.
In addition, two-thirds of respondents said in the current financial climate they
were more likely to outsource specific projects or business functions as the need
arose, rather than recruit a full-time member of staff.
OutsourceMyProject helps bring together businesses from all sectors and match them
with a huge range of service providers, from freelance writers to freelance SEO experts. Co-founder Loren Holland said the recession has made many firms
take stock and make positive moves to ensure their companies become more efficient
and cut wastage, while retaining the experience and skills of valuable employees.
He said: "The results of the survey show that more companies now look to find a freelancer to outsourcing
work to when those skills are not available in-house and this can lead to
considerable cost savings. We expect to see a continuation of this trend as more
firms look to rationalise their operations and increase efficiency."
The majority of businesses that said they do not currently outsource work pointed to
a lack of confidence in the skills, qualifications or experience of providers as the
main reason for not doing so.
Loren added: "It's completely understandable that companies want to know exactly
who they are bringing onboard and that the professional they choose can be relied
upon to complete the project on time and to an agreed standard. By going through
OutsourceMyProject.com firms put themselves in a position to receive genuine tenders
from experienced professionals.
"In addition, the website's transparent feedback and rating system means both
parties can draw on the experience of others before entering into an agreement."
