Whatever sort of business you run, the fact is that you are more likely to use outsourced labour in the future for all sorts of different services than at any time in the past.
This is due to a number of factors, not the least of which is the recession of the last few years which has been worse than at any time since the 1930’s. In 2008, for reasons that we all know, businesses started to go broke right, left, and centre. These were not new businesses, but businesses which had been established for many years, in a lot of cases over a century.
If businesses established that long were to succumb, what hope was there for newly established businesses with little funds behind them to survive a long period of downturn? Obviously, not a lot.
This threw a whole lot of people, who were under the impression that they worked for a secure company and had a job for life, on to the jobs market. Lots of unemployed people, and no jobs for them to go to.
However, a considerable number of these people realised that they had skills which were still in demand in certain sectors, and realised that they could offer their services on an ad hoc basis. Not only that, they could charge a lot more per hour than they were ever paid as employees. So they became outworkers working on an entirely self-employed basis which suited both them and businesses needing extra help.
At the same time, over the last few years, employment legislation has been brought in, which as far as many employers are concerned, is draconian. Actually taking on an employee is fast becoming something that many businessmen now view as a last resort.
The result has been the rapid increase of the availability of routine jobs, such as outsourced typing services. Every business needs documents typed, letters typed, reports typed, and more. It is almost impossible to run a business without them.
Smart businessmen are now turning to things such as outsourced typing services that they can use as and when they need them, and pay only for what they need, when they need it.
There are none of the huge disadvantages of employing staff, with all that it entails. No National Insurance, holiday pay, sick pay, maternity leave, pension scheme, office space, office equipment, and all of the associated problems that come with taking on a new member of staff.
You don’t even have to train people when you use outsourced typing services. They come ready-trained, and produce top class work with a very fast turn-around time. In fact, at WWY, our typists are available from 8.00 am to 10.00 pm, so you can dictate your letters, memos, and reports whenever it suits you. Provided you don’t leave it too late, you will get them back the same day, ready for signature, and you can post them straight off.
You can also dictate using a digital dictation machine, by phone, by email, or using an app for your mobile. Nothing could be simpler, or more cost-effective.
