Outsourcing

 

What is Outsourcing 

 

Outsourcing is an arrangement in which one company provides services for another company that could also be or usually have been provided in-house. Outsourcing is a trend that is becoming more common in information technology and other industries for services that have usually been regarded as intrinsic to managing a business. In some cases, the entire information management of a company is outsourced, including planning and business analysis as well as the installation, management, and servicing of the network and workstations. Outsourcing can range from the large contract in which a whole service is outsourced for a major multi-national company or it can be the practice of hiring contractors and temporary office workers on an individual basis for medium and small companies.

Why use Outsourcing  

 

The continued economic insecurity is fuelling the upward trend in outsourced model and  this seems to be particularly true for recruitment function and human resource  outsourcing.  
 
Many companies, forced to slash overhead and generate more revenue from their  primary products or services, now have a better understanding of what functions  are core to their success and which are context.  
 
Payroll processing is common, for example, because it is a common and necessary  function across all companies. No matter how well payroll is processed, it  gives the company no competitive advantage. Similarly, hiring top-performers is  core, but the process to find, recruit and manage the function is context.  Companies use the same methods, job boards, applicant tracking  systems and people. Outsourcing the Sourcing represents a departure from these  traditional options, at Roc Human Resources we pride ourselves in ensuring we comprehensively partner your organisation to ensure seem less function.   
 
Outsourcing of the generalist functions, including payroll, benefits administration and  employee relations, has considerable momentum today. The recruitment function, however  is now taking the lead

Why Outsourcing the Sourcing? 

 
Organisations outsource recruitment and hiring practices for many different reasons. According to a recent Survey, three business priorities, they are 
 
“Executing business strategy”, “reducing operating costs” and “recruiting, retaining and  developing a great workforce”. All of these have shaped the needs and triggers  for the adoption of Outsourced Sourcing Model  
 
Key Benefits of ROC Human Resources’ Outsourced Sourcing Model  Any evaluation of whether to outsource must begin with a clear understanding of the  intended benefits and how the features of an outsourcing company will generate  the benefit. This is important to ensure the benefits can be monitored and  managed.  
 
To maximise the overall value of outsourcing, the cause and effect logic must constantly be  applied. At ROC Human Resources we provide the following features 
 
Access to a wider talent 

 
One of the key drivers for outsourcing the recruitment process is to improve access to  talent. An outsourcing provider should be able to demonstrate the ability to  attract a larger pool of quality candidates for an organisation over their  internal recruitment team. At ROC Human Resources we have a comprehensive range  of attraction channels which reach a wide pool of talent. This is due to the  frequency we undertake talent acquisition for multiple clients and build  comprehensive databases of active and passive candidates. 
 
Continued innovation and increased expertise 

 
Organisations looking to outsource their sourcing function often look for a provider to help  them enhance their employment brand and value proposition as well as offer  innovative talent acquisition and mobility strategies. 
 
The demographics of the general workforce are complex and a major impact to hiring  top talent. There are currently different distinct generations working together  making up a workforce that have a wide range of ideas and motivations. In  addition, workforce demographics are constantly changing which can  significantly impact talent acquisition and management success. Many  organisations look to their sourcing providers to assist them in navigating  this confusing and ever changing landscape by utilising their market insight  and strategic recommendations to help them stay ahead of the curve.
