WHY DO ORGANIZATIONS OUTSOURCE THEIR BUSINESS PROCESS?
Lack of expert-labor in some portions of the business process
Availability of cheaper labor
Feasibility to concentrate on the other crucial business process
At better quality as well
You can get your job done at a lower cost
Western countries and Asia
the same kind of work that is done over there can be done in India at a fraction of the cost.
Outsourcing lets you focus on the human resources that you need them most.
Hiring and training staff
Can be very expensive
Many employees don´t always live up to your expectations

SAVE ON INFRASTRUCTURE AND TECHNOLOGY
As the outsourcing partner takes the responsibility of the business processes and hence develops infrastructure for the same.
round-the-clock business operations
TIME ZONE ADVANTAGE
Get your job done while you are closed for the day and wake up to your service being delivered the next morning
FASTER AND BETTER SERVICE
Decrease the lead time it takes for your product to reach the marketplace
Shift certain responsibilities to the outsourced vendor
RISK OF EXPOSING CONFIDENTIAL DATA
Legal fees to retain a lawyer
The hidden costs involved in signing a contract across international boundaries may pose a serious threat
LACK OF CUSTOMER FOCUS
When an organization outsources HR, Payroll and Recruitment services, it involves a risk if exposing confidential company information to a third-party
An outsourced vendor may be catering to the expertise-needs of multiple organizations at a time
In such situations vendors may lack complete focus on your organization’s tasks
Delivery time frame
Inappropriate categorization of responsibilities
At times it is easier to regulate these factors inside an organization rather than with an outsourced partner
Employees were committing suicides
FORBIDDEN TO SPEAK TO EACH OTHER
24 PEOPLE CAN SHARE 1 ROOM
Rest day every 13 days
No overtime premium for weekends
They work for 12 hours a day
Initial response to the suicides was to bring in monks to exorcise evil spirits.
Later suggested workers were committing suicide to secure large compensation payments for their families
