4 Trends Driving Institutions to Explore Outsourcing

In the digital age, speed is everything. Global competition, evolving client needs and innovation demand it. In recent years, more institutions have been motivated to explore alternative ways to manage their talent requirements, using outsourcing as a means to right-size teams and navigate a radically shifting business landscape. This is true across all industries, including real estate, where outsourcing is helping counter some of the liquidity challenges that typically plague the asset class. Here are four drivers that are motivating firms to consider the outsourcing of talent.

Driver #1 - The Need to Scale Quickly

Long procurement processes, rigid budgetary practices and defined hiring processes can impair an institution’s capacity to scale talent quickly in response to a market dynamics. Outsourcing of talent provides a means for firms to right size their teams more fluidly in response to opportunity.

Driver #2 - Technology 

Technology is creating both opportunity and disruption. Organizations must embrace flexible business structures that allow for agile changes in staff size, composition and skill sets to accommodate technology as it evolves.

Driver #3 - Rising Talent Costs

Today, most institutions are based in high-cost urban environments with expensive talent and overhead. Through outsourcing and remote teams, savvy institutions are leveraging lower-cost environments to drive cost efficiency.

Driver #4 - A Return to Core Competencies

With increasing global competition, institutions are focusing resources on their core competencies that create unique value for clients. Outsourcing commoditized aspects of normal business execution facilitates this strategy.
