Web traffic has seen a significant increase in May, jumping to 106,004 visitors (up 22%) and 343,987 page views (up 26%) for the month.

There were 976 outsourcing quotation requests representing an estimated 1,998* full-time staff with an estimated outsourcing value of $59,940,000*. See all statistics in the Source Partner dashboard.

The annualised quotation inquiries amounted to a total outsourcing value of $742,560,000* requesting a total of 24,752* full-time roles.

Outsourcing inquiry insights – May

The Source Partner dashboard provides live analysis and deep-dive insight into the traffic and inquiries coming through. Some insights from this month:

Number of roles initially required

Clients typically start with a smaller requirement and then grow the team once they settle the team

Size of clients’ company

The inbound inquiries come from companies of all sizes – from startups to multi-national enterprise

Location of clients’ company

The client inquiries come from across the globe – typically from the high-cost English-speaking nations.

Clients’ company sector

The client companies cover almost every sector possible, and the roles they seek are also very varied

Inside Outsourcing book launch

Inside Outsourcing book launch

The sending of the May Performance Report was delayed this month due to the book launch of Inside Outsourcing.

“Inside Outsourcing: How Remote Work, Outsourcing & Global Employment is Changing the World” is written by Outsource Accelerator founder and CEO Derek Gallimore with the intention of shining a light on the many advantages of outsourcing and globalized employment.

The launch was a success, and the book has made it to best-seller status in Amazon for its category.

Exciting growth for outsourcing

The outsourcing industry is seeing sustained interest and growth right now. The perfect storm of COVID-induced remote working, labor shortages and rising salaries across the West, plus a normalization of online tools and digital work means that outsourcing is gradually becoming the norm, rather than the exception.

We suggest that all small and mid-tier BPOs should shoot for 50% growth this year. Are you ready?
