Many different types of jobs have been outsourced. Even whole departments of companies have been outsourced. From accounting and payroll to research and customer service, thereís no limit to what can be outsourced. Barring highly technical jobs, any position that is a repetitive, low tech, low skilled position is ideal for outsourcing.
Many businesses have found great success outsourcing their billing/collections, appointment setting, sales, marketing, internet marketing, customer service, tech support, accounting, fulfillment, programming and even many office management functions to private outsourcing firms.
Why? Because the people who work for these outsourcing firms are usually from other countries and really appreciate their positions. They take pride in the work that they do. Call any business in the US and youíll find people working in low tech (read low paid) positions that arenít happy with their jobs. The moment something better comes along theyíre usually gone like a shot. Not so with outsourcing firms. Their workers value their jobs and appreciate their employers. This attitude promotes worker loyalty.
Because of this, many business owners enjoy having employee headaches permanently taken off of their shoulders. Companies are finally able to focus on growth and improvement.
