Why should finance businesses outsource?

The financial services industry continues to navigate changing regulatory frameworks and the increasing need to monitor cybersecurity threats, while also embracing the technology required to meet customer expectations. Businesses need to identify strategies to keep up with these market changes while improving the quality of their service and achieving business growth.

On top of this, a current global talent shortage has left almost 69% of businesses1 with difficulty sourcing and retaining skilled talent. It’s fair to assume that employers might have their ‘pick of the bunch’ from a large pool of quality, skilled workers with global unemployment hitting well over the 200 million mark2. However, despite the sudden employment losses or financial turmoil experienced by employees during this time, there is research to suggest that applicants are now in control3, wanting more value-based benefits from potential employers rather than just financial gain.

Considering alternative resourcing strategies, like outsourcing, is a way finance businesses can open up to a global pool of quality talent and reap the following benefits:

  • Cost savings: Hiring new staff is an expensive process and outsourcing can save your organisation money by having day-to-day tasks completed in a lower-cost economy, where employment costs are up to 70% less.
  • Improved efficiencies and staff satisfaction: Outsourcing experts help you identify roles that would be best suited to send to an offshore employee. That way, your local team can focus on what they do best and what motivates them leading to productivity improvements across the board.
  • Business scalability: One of the many reasons organisations struggle to grow is a lack of funds to invest in additional resources to support growth objectives. With the additional support of an offshore team member(s), you can increase the capacity for your organisation to take on more work.

Outsourcing companies - how to choose your provider

Choosing the wrong outsourcing provider can be detrimental to your success.

Selecting a provider with values that align with your business objectives is the ultimate goal. Doing so will ensure your outsourcing journey is nothing short of successful. How do you know you’re choosing the right outsourcing provider? Start by asking the right questions. These questions should drill into their operations so that you’re left with a thorough understanding of how they operate. Some of these questions may include:

  • Can you detail your standard security policies and infrastructure to manage data, security and privacy?
  • What tools do you have in place to ensure staff members remain online and productive 100% of the time?
  • What productivity reporting do you provide as a standard?
  • If things are not working out, what is the notice period and termination fees?
  • How does your recruitment process ensure you find the best candidate for my role?

This step is absolutely crucial in ensuring your outsourcing journey is a success. Remember, not all outsourcing providers are the same. They all have different protocols, facilities, T&Cs and contracts. Analyse, compare and choose the provider that resonates with your firm the most.
