While there is a lot to be said for hard work, more and more companies are realising that working smarter, not harder, is the best path to business success.
Do you want employees to toil away for a long period of time on the same tasks?
Every company will have tasks that are slow to complete and dull to undertake. This will leave many employees feeling bored, listless and unsure about why they are working for your firm. There is always an opportunity cost in work and time spent on one job is time that cannot be spent on other jobs, which means that you want to minimise the time that you spend on each task, if you can without reducing quality.
Do you want to train employees only to see them leave, requiring you to start again?
There is an argument that training employees will provide them with the skills and confidence to carry out work to a higher standard. This is good but of course, when that employee leaves, all of the benefits of that training time and cost are lost and you have to start again. This means that there is more to be said for spending money on outsourcing work and you don’t need to worry about sunken costs that you cannot recover.
Are you happy with poor work?
If your employees are not capable of carrying out work to the level you need or expect, are you happy to persevere with this outcome? This isn’t good for your business or your customers and it may be that outsourcing the work to professionals to carry out is the smartest move for you to take.
While there are many routes to business success, you will find that most companies will agree on the need to:
- Work in an efficient manner
- Produce work to a high standard
- Keep employees happy in their place of work
- Provide customers with the highest standard of service
If you are not capable of reaching these aims yourself or if you find that it takes too long and it is too hard for your employees to achieve these outcomes, you should be looking for an alternative solution. Outsourcing is the way to work smarter not harder and you can achieve more through this approach.
