Companies and businesses around the world need to extend all efforts to keep up with the changing trends in their individual industries. Besides meeting customer demands, companies also aim to provide the best services and products. These drive companies to seek cost-effective administrative and project-based talents. To fill up these demands, two of the most popular staffing trends today are offshoring and recruiting foreign talents.

As much as employers wish to hire more staff to handle the workload, recruiting is sometimes more expensive than companies can afford. Offshoring is a popular approach to getting specific talents at a lower cost. Is it really the answer to all recruiting troubles of the company? Or is recruiting foreign talent hiring a better option for this?

 

Offshore Hiring

Offshore hiring remains as a popular method for outsourcing talents and establish a great working condition for potential recruits. Employers can enjoy great skills and talents for short term projects at a much lower cost. There will be less expense on medical, social security and other mandatory employer contribution compared to in-house hires.

Recruiting talents via offshore hiring allows employers a wider pool of manpower resources. Outsourcing companies such as Staff Domain have candidates who are well experienced in their field and can provide professional work output in various industries.

While other companies view differences in time zones and schedules to be a disadvantage, many employers appreciate this window in getting work done while they sleep. Instructions, guides or tasks can be sent before going home and by the next morning the task is already completed.

The only major down-side of offshoring is that the employees or team is far away. Some employees may feel like they have no control over the project. Face to face meetings via video calls or Skype can be a challenge for different time zones, too. When working with offshore talents, employers need to protect the business and establish trustful and long-term relationships with their hires.

 

Recruiting Foreign Talents

Foreign talents can be hired based on their specific skills and talents which may be in short supply locally. Skilled workers and some professionals have a great demand in the job market these days. Countries with a shortage of skilled workers have attractive offers such as provisions for resident visas or immigrant visas. The potential offshore hires can also have  great compensation packages without the need to work outside of their home country.

There is a lot of foreign labor that is basically cheaper than hiring local professionals. Foreign talents are usually from a younger generation with the strong career drive, but with trainings and years of experience in their field. Employers can choose potential employees for job vacancies in the company from a long list of highly-trained, experienced and skilled candidates coming from other countries.

One of the best advantages of hiring foreign workers is that they can easily adapt to different working environments and their willingness to take on unwanted local or domestic jobs which most locals overlook. Skills shortage may include accounting jobs, hotel and restaurant staff, construction and engineering jobs, and many others. The same list and more can be recruited offshore as well, including IT jobs, software developers, web design and other highly technical jobs.
