March 22, 2017: According to the Mercer study, it is noted that more than half (54 percent) of the Indians plan to quit their jobs right after the completion of 12 months in their respective current jobs. The Mercer’s 2017 Global Talent Trends Study states that even the employees that are not planning to leave their current roles feel laggard and are not been able to pose their real self at work and are unlikely to thrive in a collaborative and innovation workplace.

Mercer’s study reveals the insights from over 7,500 perspectives globally, 461 of these in India, and parallels the views of senior business executives, HR leaders, and employees from organizations around the world.

Ilya Bonic, President of Mercer’s Career business stated, “In an age where digitization, robotics, and AI are wreaking havoc with traditional business models, it is easy for executives to focus on superior technology as the solution to ensuring the competitiveness of their organizations and to overlook the human element,”.

Bonic further concluded that growth hinges on engaging and empowering present manpower in ways that we are just beginning to tap. It takes employees loaded with the right skills and opportunities to develop innovative solutions to advance the business and themselves.

In addition to it, the Mercer Global survey propagated that whilst Indian companies want to redesign their structures, their organisation structures are resistant to change. It said that only 11 percent of the business executives say their organisation is adaptable to changes. The number is still higher than the global average of just 4 percent.

In the survey, 83 percent of organisation in India reported they are planning to redesign their structure in the next two years. Conversely, human resource (HR) leaders do not lay emphasis on job redesign as their primary concern in 2017. As a matter of fact, the matter of primary concern for HR leaders are explicitly building skills across the workforce, identifying high potential, developing leaders for succession, and attracting top talent externally – as it reflects the priority of evolving employee capabilities, however, may not align with executive’s goals for more substantial workplace change.

In HR leaders list of the top management’s priority, “heath” is ranked in the bottom half despite 53 percent of the workforce regarded health as a matter of great concern than wealth.

Flexible work arrangements are also important to employees, with over two-thirds reporting that both their direct manager (73 percent) and company leaders (70 percent) are supportive of it.

The C-suite and HR leaders concede that they do not foresee a “gig economy” – short-term contracts or freelance work – to have a major impact on their business in the next two-year span.

Here's a list of seven jobs that you need to outsource in order to make your business successful. Pixabay

As a business, your main goal at the end of the day is to be as profitable as possible. Whether that’s by bringing in more customers or releasing a new product, you want to make sure your business doesn’t approach the red.

Another key strategy is to ensure your expenses aren’t too high. Cutting costs here and there can do wonders for your bottom line. 

But, there’s always the catch that you have to spend money to make money. But when you spend money, you want to make sure that you’re maximizing your dollar.

One of the best ways to maximize your dollar is by outsourcing some of the work, which is happening more and more every year. That way you know you’re getting the best results without dumping your wallet’s content on the table.

If you’re expanding your business or looking for some help, we have a few jobs that you could outsource to get the best results possible.

Business Customer support

Customer Support

Even though it may seem like you should have your customer support in house at all times, many businesses choose to outsource their front-line. Many customer support agents and representatives work from home, further cutting down costs.

These people don’t have to be on the phone, as text and chat support is becoming more and more popular every year as it is quicker and simpler for many.

Data Entry

Although sometimes a menial task, data entry is one of the jobs that is commonly outsourced and can be done by anyone with a computer and internet connection. 

Many companies pride themselves on being cost-friendly and efficient, meaning you can get quick results for your necessary work without spending top dollar.’

Accountants

A much more specialized job, accountants can be outsourced for small size businesses. If you have less than 50 employees, you likely aren’t going to need an accountant at your office full-time.

But, it helps to have one you can contact easily with any payroll or tax questions that arise. You’ll also want someone whom you can meet with on a regular basis to ensure communication is both open and effective.

Web Design

Unless your company revolves around IT and web design, you can outsource this work to build your websites or work on behind the scenes tech items.

Web designers will make sure everything is running smoothly for your online world, not just your website. While there are more specialized IT reps out there, they can give you many tips and tricks to make sure your online presence is guarded and safe, while also making your home page look fantastic.

Human Resources

Once again, this largely depends on the size of your business but small businesses likely don’t need an HR rep in the building at all times. That’s why it’s a great idea to outsource this responsibility to a company that can handle many tasks.

Many startups and small businesses have much more to focus on than choosing benefits or managing through a mountain of paperwork, so it’s best to let someone else take care of that so you can focus on growing your business. 

IT

Similar to web design, you probably aren’t going to need an IT specialist available at all times. They can handle more specific tasks like security, software development, and programming. 

Plus, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll run into a computer problem you can’t fix by yourself every day. If you have a bunch of new employees coming in, make sure to schedule their computer setup all in one day to make it easy for everyone.

Personal Assistants

Wait a second, isn’t the idea of personal assistants supposed to be they’re always there when you need them to handle calls and schedule appointments?

With so many of these processes being automated, it’s now becoming more of a norm to outsource personal assistants or even have a part-time remote worker to make sure everything runs smoothly.

They can do much more than handle calls, like setting up meetings or handling plenty of logistical questions. This also takes the burden off of your schedules, moving away from the nitty-gritty and focusing on the big picture of your business.
