Why employ when you could outsource for less!
Posted on 16th January 2019 at 16:10
A growing business is always a good thing. However, your staff may be stretched thin with time-consuming daily activities. Expanding your business doesn’t always mean adding more headcount. Hiring new positions is expensive; outsourcing is more cost effective.
When you use a firm to take care of your admin tasks, your current staff can focus on their core competencies. Working with a knowledgeable, reliable company, you can offload work like telephone answering, email monitoring, diary management, database management, GDPR implementation, and social media management. With extra support for these fundamental tasks, you won’t feel so far behind on all the day-to-day necessities of running a business.
The True Cost of Hiring
If you are growing, you may think it’s time to hire a full-time employee. But is that something you can really afford? How much does it actually cost? If you hire a full-time employee at £10.00 an hour, you’ll end up spending over £46,000. This includes salary, optional costs related to benefits, technology fees, and more. If you’re calculating this kind of figure only using the actual wage, you’ll find that you’ll actually pay thousands more in hiring a full-time employee.
Whereas if you outsource some of your work, you’ll only pay an hourly fee or an agreed upon flat fee per month. All the other costs associated with hiring a full-time employee won’t keep adding up here.
You’ll receive a better return on the investment with outsourcing than hiring. It’s easier to achieve your objectives for less when you use a firm to help out with your workload.
Benefits of outsourcing
In addition to cost savings, the benefits of outsourcing are plentiful, including:
Frees up time for full-time staff to be more strategic like finding new possible prospects versus being stuck on simple admin tasks
Ensures your business is always up-to-date for admin duties
Allows for better business processes that are consistent
Work with experts in the specific field (for example, leave social media to the experts, if you aren’t one)
Access to the same services a larger organisation has so you can remain competitive
Enables you to grow your business by delegating smaller tasks to an outsourcing firm
Permits the flexible use of labour—staff up during your busy season without having to hire
