While many businesses are aware of the concept of outsourcing, not all have a full grasp of what it can bring to their tables.
And yes, outsourcing has undoubtedly been beneficial to companies of all sizes and across industries. It has, however, been regarded as the bad boy of the business sector as it had been riddled with controversies over the years. Even more when it comes to the offshoring practice.
But having said those, how exactly has outsourcing gone from being considered unethical to providing global empowerment? How are remote work, outsourcing, and global employment revolutionizing today’s businesses?
These are the keynotes that Derek Gallimore, CEO of the leading outsourcing authority in the Philippines, Outsource Accelerator, has touched upon in his book – Inside Outsourcing.
