    There was a time that the Philippine government had outsourced the customs collection to a foreign company called SGS (of Switzerland). The company's prestige earned the full trust of the Philippine government. However, some decades back, the service contract of SGS was not renewed so now it is the Philippine government's customs agency that is handling the operation for the incoming product importation. And there are complaints of corruption so some quarters are asking for the SGS contract again.

    I have witnessed this in what I would call madness. I know of many companies that outsource in the form of temporary employees. While it is good for people who are in need of work, it is bad for society I believe. I have been in situations like this and the problem that it brought to employees, such as myself was the lack of protection from the government because of these contracts.

    My old supervisors would terminate my position without giving a reason, I did not work for the company, I worked for the temp agency. I hated that because after you start to build a life style for yourself, you could easily loose your job. Possibly ending up bouncing around a lot.

    Outsourcing is fine, but I think in a way that the employer needs to consider what they are going to be doing for those employees who don't work for the company.

    I think this is a great method and even better than doing the outsourcing yourself because this way you could save even more time and effort as well as keep yourself even safer from more liabilities. It might cost a bit more but considering you're probably getting a bit of savings already from outsourcing not only in terms of finance but probably also in effort then I do think it is worth the extra cost if your company can afford it.

    OUtsourcing to individuals is quite risky. Someone you hire may for some reason be unable to do the work you want them to do and you'd have to be forced to hire someone else. Delays aren't great for business. That's why though hiring a company or an agency that earns money only when work is done will cost more, you'll have little to worry about because you have the assurance that the company or outsourcing agency will see to it that what is promised is delivered on time.

    It actually depends on the scale at which you want to outsource.

    If you just need a couple of workers, most of the larger companies would not be willing to work with you but if you can easily afford upto 7 to 8 workers and would probably expand to a higher number in future then outsourcing to the company is a better choice.

    Moreover, it is a much better idea to start small when it comes to outsourcing as you are never sure about the quality at the start.

    Outsourcing eludes the need to hire individuals in-house; hence recruitment and operational costs can be minimized to a great extent. One of the most crucial factors determining the outcome of a campaign is risk-analysis. Outsourcing components of your business helps the organization to shift certain responsibilities to the outsourced vendor. Since the outsourced vendor is a specialist, they plan your risk-mitigating factors better. The outsourced vendors also have specific equipment and technical expertise, most of the times better than the ones at the outsourcing organization. Effectively the tasks can be completed faster and with better quality output. http://www.infoxusa.com/
