It’s common practice for companies to leverage offshore employees or contractors in order to offload work to specialized individuals or reduce costs associated with certain tasks and responsibilities. This can free up stateside staff to focus on more complex and valuable initiatives and also ensure 24x7 operations for companies that rely upon on-call staff and subject matter experts (SMEs) to address emergency situations.
The advantages to this practice go hand in hand with the need to carefully assess the conditions under which this work is farmed out including operational aspects, security and defining/assigning task responsibilities to ensure the best results.
The purpose of this Offshore work policy, from TechRepublic Premium, is to establish guidelines for establishing offshore work teams including orientation, access and role determinations and business considerations.
This policy can be customized as needed to fit the needs of your organization.
