Why Choose Outsourcing in Indonesia and How to Perform Evaluation

Nowadays, outsourcing has become a trend in the world of business in Indonesia. Outsourcing has been accepted by organisations and companies as a way to redefine and re-energise business.

Management third party, also known as an outsourcing provider, is an organisation that offers services to companies to help them boost business growth by letting them focus on strategies and core business functions, instead of doing dull tasks such as bookkeeping, payroll processing and accounting.

In an organisation life cycle, here is how an outsourcing policy plays an important role:

  • Phase 1 – Introduction. The strategy is to choose experienced staff, so the training program has not yet become an integral part in this phase.
  • Phase 2 – Growth. The strategy to overcome the accumulation of work that has not been completed (backlogs) and scheduling is implemented by doing recruitment,  and selection is improved to get new staff.
  • Phase 3 – Maturity. When the organisation and staff begin to stabilise, it needs to develop new products or services, so they need to outsource temporary workers for that.
  • Phase 4 – Decline. In this stage, the best fit strategy is product diversification and cost reduction. The organisation is taking the option of closing existing facilities, early retirement, or even employee termination (if necessary). This phase requires outsourcing to support organisations that carry out downsizing strategies.
