Over the last year, every company in the UK has outsourced, because they have had to. With lockdown, companies were ill-equipped to manage their employees using an outsource model thrust upon them.
The whole employer role was broken; people furloughed, some on flexi-furlough, increase in freelancers and of course, outsourcing to internal employees and external agencies, whether onshore or offshore.
Companies had not accounted for this swift change and were not ready. One year later and they are still not ready.
Looking into the future, employers and employees are not going to or will not want to go back to the way it was. Employees have experienced the emotional bonus of spending more time within a family unit and the time won back from lack of travelling to the office. Employers have realised the employees placed on furlough may not be needed once Government support has ended.
Forward thinking companies have come to an inevitable conclusion.
THERE IS STILL TIME
As we come out of lockdown, companies will be faced with choices, many have furloughed and made people redundant, now they may have to recruit again. Recruiting is not an inexpensive process. The amount of time and resources for little or no return is substantial. An employee only starts repaying an employer once they have completed their induction and the company may have gone through a few frogs before they find their prince that will make it all worthwhile.
Eventually, when all the right employees are on board, there will be a requirement to look after them, manage their holidays, sickness, absence as well as monitoring their behaviour, performance and providing feedback. All this costs money.
