‘Outsourcing’ is one of those words that can make business owners feel a little bit on edge. If you’re used to having full control of the day-to-day running of your company, you might feel like outsourcing is a risk that you’re unsure if you want to take.
However, this needn’t be the case. Facilities management companies can help identify which services you should be outsourcing. Doing this with some, or all, of your facilities can bring with it a myriad of benefits. To help you understand more, we’ve put together a list of the positive effects that facilities outsourcing can bring.
As a business owner, we’re sure you’re well aware of how time consuming the hiring process is. You might be in desperate need of new office manager or member of HR staff, but even if you rush the process along it could still take a few of weeks until you find somebody suitable. By outsourcing this work, you’re able to select from a pool of people who have already been given the stamp of approval.
When you waste time interviewing candidates, you’re also wasting money. The hours you’re spending on this process could be put to better use. Not only that, but money can be saved once you’ve decided to use outsourced staff. Rather than hiring somebody full-time, you can look at exactly how many hours they’ll be needed, and draw up a contract accordingly. You might be surprised to learn that a facilities management company can reduce the cost of employing a new staff member by up to 40%!
When you hire an unknown worker, you’re taking a risk. No matter how well they come across in the interview, you’re not guaranteed that they’ll deliver the service they promise. Outsourced employees have already had to prove themselves, and will come with recommendations.
