Economic instability, introduction of the National Living Wage, legislative changes such as those affecting T&S expenses and dispensations/salary sacrifice are just some of the challenges facing the recruitment industry, squeezing its margins, distracting it from core tasks and deterring it from taking business to the next level. But once where only large agencies could afford outsourcing to ensure resilience in uncertain market conditions, so too now can smaller firms, enabling them to compete with their industry peers.
Now that the traditional umbrella model is no longer operable, agencies will need to reduce overheads to remain profitable and in business. Outsourcing is arguably the most obvious way to do this. But identifying the right tasks and processes to outsource is critical to the success of an outsourcing strategy. Outsourcing must add to overall productivity and efficiency which is where we can help and advise, especially where value can be best achieved. The objective is to improve operational effectiveness, increase your top-line and reduce your overheads, and leave you free to focus on developing your business.
Our expanding international capabilities combined with highly trained staff mean you can now economically outsource processes such as finance & admin, CV cleansing, HR, Bill and Pay and customer care. Additionally, our powerful analytics can help agencies experiencing large growth to make the transition to the next level. But what sets us apart from our competitors is that we understand that outsourcing may not sit well with your medium/long term business plans. When the time is right, Anderson will work with you to bring outsourced services back in-house and, if preferred, continue to offer you offshore processing but under your total control.
