About discipline: Outsourcing — the procedure of transfer of non-core works for your firm the specialized company, outsources, to the outsourcer or remote employees with qualification. To determine the need to transfer any work to an outsourcer, it is necessary to evaluate the cost of time, other resources for it. We evaluate the work, comparing it with the cost of the employee's outsourcer worker and make a decision on our own.
The cost of outsourcing is considerable, but we always get more in the future — otherwise we "pay twice with a stingy one." If the outsourcing company even increases costs first, then reduces costs. Sure! Due to greater productivity and quality of work, turnover.
We need an outsourcing agreement (they are looking for it on the Internet or they are developing it themselves).
For example, outsourcing of the company's website includes the development of navigation, design, layout, administration, hosting, text filling, promotion and advertising. IT outsourcing can include a complete set (or part) of work to ensure the safe operation, protection of information, network, personal and corporate data of the company.
