The Dark Side of Outsourcing
While the benefits mentioned above are substantive, there is also a downside to outsourcing. One of the chief concerns associated with outsourcing is the loss of jobs and unemployment. Loss of control can also happen when processes are handled external to the organization. In fact, you may find yourself at the mercy of your suppliers, which in turn has a negative effect on the morale of the remaining employees.
At the end of the day the decision to outsource can be a difficult one, but it’s up to the leadership of your organization to determine when and if outsourcing should be an option. The pros and cons should be carefully weighed to ensure the decision is in line with the entity’s goals and objectives.
