Companies have choices when it comes to outsourcing jobs. The two main categories are onshoring and offshoring. What is the difference between the two? This article tackles the issues with the help of offshore experts.


Before we go to the main topic, we need to differentiate the two for us to better understand the two processes and the issues concerning onshore issues guided by offshore experts.


Onshore outsourcing


Onshore outsourcing is hiring people near your business or company. Meaning you will hire people locally. Some companies consider this option if they want to be 100% involved in the operations of their business. You don’t have to worry about cultural differences and language barriers as they are your people. But it doesn’t mean that there are no disadvantages, which will be discussed later on.


Offshore outsourcing

Offshoring usually refers to working with people and teams in far-away countries. While the cost of working with offshore companies cannot be beaten, as they are cheaper than onshoring. Even if the services offered by offshoring are cheaper, the quality of work is not compromised, if not better.


Now we know the fundamental meaning of the two, what are the onshore issues considered by our experts?


  • More expensive

This is one of the issues for business owners per our experts. Services rendered onshore are expensive, which means less profit for businesses. That is why more companies go for the cheaper one which is offshoring. Though cheaper is not always better, choosing the cheaper option without compromising quality is a good option for business owners.



  • Limited selection

If you are looking for a huge pool of onshoring companies, then it will be hard. The competition will be stiff as there are a limited number of onshoring companies that can offer their services. Unlike on offshoring which there is a huge selection of companies, rates, and services to choose from according to our experts.



  • Backdoor offshoring

There are instances that even though you have acquired service from onshore companies, doesn’t mean they can’t offshore the job. Some onshore companies offer their services, then they will offshore it, making a profit at the same time. In some ways, this is like being cheated on as a business owner, you expect that you will be working with your own people and find out that the services are offshore.
