Outsourcing non-core business functions is not a new idea. Outsourcing partners have the most current knowledge, experience, and better trained personnel because they focus on their specialty. As a result, the outsourcing partner offers better quality service than is possible with an in-house function, in most cases at a much lower cost.
The premier emerging area for outsourcing is the Human Resources function. As companies concentrate their internal resources on their core business, they look outward for expertise. Outsourcing the Human Resources function makes good business sense.
