Until recent years, working from an office or any other business location has been all we’ve known. However, since working from home became a huge success, we need to consider whether your tasks still need to be done by your in-house staff. Does the success of remote working make options like outsourcing more valid in today’s climate? By the end of this blog, you should be in the best position to make changes to your workforce for 2023.

The reality of in-house workers

As we know from a long history of in-house workforces, they can bring outstanding results for businesses of all kinds. Heading into the future, this model has the most research, so it’s seen as the safest option for some, especially if you want close control over your team. However, UK salaries are increasing massively, and workers are searching for flexible working packages, which not all employers can provide.

Benefits

– High control

– Accountability

– Strong relationships

Drawbacks

– High salaries

– Costly to accommodate employees

– Can be hard to cover Adhoc requirements

The future of Co-employment

Professional Employer Organisations (PEOs) offer co-employment services where they employ workers on your behalf, saving you the administrative responsibility and also costs when they are overseas. DeskFrnd provides global expert teams, located in our super hubs to offer the accountability and control of an in-house team. With this being said, it’s more than possible for PEOs to bring the benefits of an in-house workforce, whilst also eliminating some of the negatives.

Outsourcing your requirements

The word outsourcing often carries negative stereotypes, some with consistent evidence, but the process still has its place within business. Employing permanent talent to handle Adhoc requirements is often a waste of capital, and employing temp workers can be time-consuming and ineffective. Making outsourcing one of the best ways forward for project work. Though, it’s always best to carry out your due diligence to find the most trustworthy provider possible.
