Outsourcing Primer


The question may be raised; “why hire an outside contractor?”

In today’s office climate, the upper echelon of management may realize the need for an outside observer and their focus. Someone who is immune to office politics and or the comfort of tenure. How much time is actually utilized by salaried employees? There are lunch breaks as well as the required breaks (of which there are two), the infamous water cooler conversations and the list can go to sick days, paid vacations, national holidays etcetera. How devoted are they and do they really care? Is it just a job?

The answer to, “why hire an outsourced contractor?” is this: an outsourced contractor is purely focused on serving the client or task at hand and usually not much more unless they are directed to do so. A consultant gives you “the most bang for your buck.” Consultants are judged on their performance and value.
