How to Outsource effectively?

October 21, 2015

Outsourcing has become a major trend in human resources, and finding the right person for your team can be an overwhelming task as the process is not only virtual but also because a huge pool of qualified individuals are available for your appraisal.

How do you find the right person?

In this episode :

  • I’m going to share with you bit of a background on the largest outsourcing company online – Odesk. This is something I am truly familiar in as not only my father was its first CEO and co-founder, but also because I have used Odesk myself for my business.
  • I’m also going to share with you the specific critical characteristics I strongly looked for when I first created my offshore team
  • How I created my team structure and further grew it to support me in my business

When you are able to find the right person for the job and one who complements your personality as well, you will be able to effectively manage your business for it gives you time and energy for the essential tasks that you, as the business owner, should be focusing on.

You can minimize trial and error by being specific with what you look for and with what you need. You also have to be clear with your communication, to ensure that you are expressing the right instructions in order to get the right result and right feedback from them.

Most important to remember is that, although you relate to them virtually, they are like any employee whose service you hire. Some look at outsourcing in a per project basis, yet should you decide to grow your own offshore team, it helps to know that how you foster team harmony will be represented by the quality of their output and engagement in your business.
