Human Resource Management – Contract Out The Work
Contract Out The Work
Sub-contracting (or outsourcing, as it is more commonly called today) is becoming more frequent at all levels. Employers are seeing the advantages of avoiding employment costs and making overall savings, especially where the work is put out to competitive tender. It is very common in the building industry and in information technology (IT) but can equally well apply to work done in or outside the organization’s premises. The work can be contracted to a specialist organization, such as a facilities maintenance company, or to an agency which will deal with a large number of unskilled or semi-skilled operations and who will recruit, train and supervise the staff themselves.
