Since ages, we have seen employers hiring for in-house staff. For them, it does not make sense to outsource their employees. Why? May be there were trust issues and moreover, that time there were no such technology that you could track your employee even while working away from office. But now the technology has evolved so much that the employers can track their employee’s activity even when they are working away from office. These days hosting an in-house office requires a lot of investment like in infrastructure, organizing parties or welfare, or recruitment process etc.

In this article, I am sharing with you the problems that employers have to face in maintaining their in-house resources.

Have a look…

  1.   High Investment 

    It is costly to invest in construction or take a place on rent for your office. Also you need good furniture, computer systems, and electricity to run the office. Infact time to time you need to invest on the company to meet business needs.

  1.   More IT Personnel  

    These days Internet is a must to have. To run networking and inter-connectivity in your office, you need to create an IT team which can in turn lead to high cost. Also, the software’s that you purchase to run your business needs IT assistance.

  1.   Recruitment cost 

    You need to invest time and money on hiring for your employees. With in-house, the salary that employees expect is more as compared to remote employees.

  1.   Commute cost 

    Some companies provide transportation facility to their employees which is beared by the company. Else some of them provides shuttle facility to their employees. This investment is not required if you hire remote resources. Even workers face to commute daily with heavy traffic which consumes their time, energy and money.

  1.   Training Cost 

    When you hire any resource, you need to pay extra cost for their training purpose. A lot of investment is required to train them in their respective fields and make them professional.

  1.   Employee perks 

    There are certain employee perks like free charging, transportation(sometimes), parties, festival/birthday celebrations. You need to invest on these employee perks as well to make your in-house employee fall in love with your organization. By hiring a remote candidate, the process is faster and the job offer can take into consideration that working remotely is one of the perks.
