227 Tasks To Outsource

Our company policy has always been to exclusively hire freelancers, telecommuters, and home based workers to work for our company. This business has been built 100% on outsourced talent, so we’ve learned a few things about outsourcing over the years.

And you would be absolutely amazed at how many things can be outsourced, but only if you know what you’re doing and can express your needs clearly and concisely. If you can’t, or have difficulty hiring the right people to get the job done, then you may want to check out some options available for hiring the best outsourced talent, and managing them effectively.

Many people think of outsourcing as “hiring someone overseas to man your call center”, but this is an incredibly outdated definition. These days, the word “outsourcing” very simply means “no need to hire an in-house employee when a freelancer can do it for you more efficiently”. Once you realize that outsourcing is simply hiring a freelancer to work with short term, then a whole new world of options opens up to you.

Our company can supply you with the right talent for the job, with our Project Facilitation service. Your Facilitator will create the project specifications, craft the step by step processes, find the perfect person with a proven track record, and will even manage the whole project along the way.
