In this article, we’ll cover everything you need to know about outsourcing to India and how to manage your outsourced staff.

What Is Outsourcing?
Outsourcing is an activity where a company hires a third-party to handle its non-core tasks. This includes tasks that don’t have to be performed in-house, like customer support, data entry and more.

Why do companies do this?
Instead of doing the work themselves, they hire third-party service providers to do it for them. This way, they can focus on core activities that are essential to growing their business.

Additionally, as most outsourcing service providers are based in countries where labor is more affordable, companies can benefit from reduced costs too!

Who are these service providers?
Typically, service providers are companies who have dedicated staff to perform the task. For example, you can outsource your software needs to IT companies.

However, with the rise of the gig economy, you can also outsource to freelancers or independent contractors.
