Best Outsourcing Quotes to Inspire You

Outsourcing began in the 1950s; however, it was not until the 1980s that outsourcing became an intelligent business strategy. Outsourcing development in the 1980s was primarily driven by a business concentrating on its core capability, a process initiated in the 1970s. Today, outsourcing is a standard staffing solution amongst large and small businesses. We have assembled the most inclusive list of outsourcing quotes from well-known people and companies. But before we ponder these quotes, we must look briefly into what outsourcing is.

What is outsourcing?

The descriptor’ outsourcing’ is believed to have been suggested by economist Ronald Coase. This referred to farming out the primary and repetitive positions of blue-collar workers and more specialized white-collar workers to third parties, such as outsourcing service companies.

Outsourcing can, therefore, be seen as a staffing solution for businesses that can hire people from the outsourcing company. As such, services rendered or goods dispatched would be the responsibility of outside workers − traditionally, such would have been conducted in-house.

Services can easily be outsourced to virtual or remote assistants working remotely from their own home office. This concept has been a game-changer for businesses wanting to have work done; however, it requires cost-effectiveness.
