Companies are faced with an enormous amount of decisions everyday. There is not just a question of dealing with day to day operations(that would be easy in comparison). Instead these companies are dealing with the overall headache that thinking big picture brings. It’s not that they don’t want to think about their business in a bigger sense, it’s that thinking that way has them make tough decisions.
For many companies one of the toughest decisions is to outsource their product to a foreign market. It seems a little bit underhanded and there are certainly a good number of people out there who will blast a companies decision to do it, but the truth of the matter is that the more a company outsources, there is more of an advantage for their business.
The first advantage is the attractiveness of the plants that the work is outsourced to It’s something that the common man and woman don’t quite see all the time, but the nice part about getting businesses into these other countries is the amount of money these countries spend on the plants that they build. So, if you are a business owner in the United States, with a plant that is no longer current and can’t handle the growing technological changes of your business, you can build a new plant, or you can go to a foreign market where your business is going to be given a state of the art plant and the labor and operating costs are cheaper. It seems unfair to do to the workers in your country but businesses have to think about overall health of their own company.
Outsourcing isn’t just about cheap labor. It’s about a country being able to accommodate the changes that are happening in business everyday. Once that is factored in with the downtimes the rest of the country is feeling you can tell that there are will be more outsourcing as they move forward.
