We all know how outsourcing works - you (or your company) obtain jobs, services or goods from other supplier instead of doing/making them yourselves. But not all outsourcing jobs are successful. When I was searching the Internet about this particular topic, I have seen a lot of hate and dismay when it comes to outsourcing, for obvious reasons.
In no particular oder, here are some of the disadvantages which of outsourcing that I found:
Potential enrage from employee unions;
Possibility of losing control of the processes of business in your company;
Not all expected results are met;
Expectations from the performance of workers (outsourced) seems low;
Criteria, deadlines and response times aren't always accurate, and
Quality of the products/services aren't met.
Now obviously those are the basic reasons and some of them are related to one another but still, we can't deny the fact that it is risky to make contracts with other people when it comes to outsourcing. However trusted a person or company is, there are still flaws. I wouldn't say it's inevitable though, but it happens.
What are your opinions about outsourcing? Are you engaged in outsourcing?
