CONTRACTING AND SUBCONTRACTING; A BRILLIANT MOVE OR A HEADACHE? ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES ESSAY


Contracting, subcontracting or outsourcing all refer to the process of hiring another company or people to do a job for your company. On the surface it seems perfectly reasonable to ask a specialist company to, for example, put up a website for your company or do your accounting but is everything as it seems? What if you outsource jobs to foreign countries (offshoring); what happens then? How does the process impact local economies in, often, developing or underdeveloped countries? How does it impact the economy in the home country? Do your research and find out. Once you have done so write an advantages and disadvantages essay.
