Here’s How to Know When You Should Outsource

These days, outsourcing helps companies of all sizes shore up skills gaps in their teams, boost efficiency and sharpen their focus.

And companies that opt to outsource won’t be at a loss for qualified candidates. More than one in three workers in the U.S. freelance, according to Betterment’s 2018 “Gig Economy and the Future of Retirement” report, and that number is predicted to reach 40 percent by 2020. In addition, because freelancers can complete projects from anywhere on the planet, business leaders don’t need to shell out a lofty sum for travel and expenses.
