With any business, productivity is the name of the game.
For small and medium enterprises (SMEs), it’s their lifeblood. An unproductive business will die on the vine, pure and simple.
So productivity becomes about squeezing the most out of every hour, every resource, and every employee.
Efficiency, maintaining quality, and hitting targets are all parts of this puzzle
The staffing catalyst
To get the best results, you need the best people.
A 2022 Deloitte survey found that 50% of managers see acquiring top talent as their #1 internal priority.
But this is where the paradox rears its head.
Often in SMEs you’ll find employees wearing multiple hats.
This means focus is split, with non-essential duties often clogging up the pipeline.
Dealing with sales reports? Less time selling.
Handling internal processes? Less time designing the next iteration.
Losing yourself in the admin? Less time WINNING.
Most companies assume that the core activities have to be done in-house, locally. But this is not actually the case.
Many of the most important and core activities of a company can be done by people working offshore. These people are still your staff. They are still dedicated to your company, values and procedures, its just that they are sitting in a different location.
People often think that outsourcing means the processes will be moved ‘outside of the organization’, but this is not the case.
Data analysts, digital marketing specialists, web developers…all roles that can be sourced offshore – for less – thus freeing up your key local players to be the superstars you know they are.
And it’s not just specialized skills that outsourcing can bring.
New perspectives and innovative solutions come hand-in-hand with external hires.
They have experience working with different clients across different industries, letting you tap into a wealth of knowledge and expertise.
Pay peanuts, get…?
The old adage of ‘pay peanuts, get monkeys’ leads businesses to believe that skilled, motivated professionals don’t come cheap.
But this way of thinking is antiquated and totally wrong in today’s global marketplace.
Hiring top tier talent doesn’t have to come at an eye-watering premium.
Sourcing staff from premium offshore destinations around the world can guarantee access to the right talent at the right price point.
Embracing the future
One thing is certain – we are in the golden age of productivity.
The global marketplace is more varied than ever, and its workers are perfectly positioned to help supercharge your enterprise.
The world is becoming smaller, flatter and more integrated every day. If you don’t outsource, then your competitor probably will.
Only those with an open mind and a strategic approach result are going to stay on top and reap the rewards.
