What is outsourcing?


Outsourcing is a business process whereby one individual or business contracts out a job to another business or individual.

Dating back to 1981, the term stems from the phrase 'outside ressourcing' and can also involve the transferring of employees and assets from one company to another.

Usually businesses outsource in order to fill a gap or shortage in skills or resources. Due to this, outsourcing can save businesses money as less money is needed to hire and train specialised staff.
