Manage   »   Delivery   »   In-sourcing

This is a practice whereby an organisation terminates the outsourcing contract of a provider, to return and establish the service back in house. This may involve the complete removal of the providers employees or may involve the partial replacement of employees with workers in the home country. Many businesses had offshore experiences but subsequently chose to in-source and return them back to the home country. The principal reason they gave for returning were because of the hidden costs of outsourcing or offshoring. The organisations experienced added direct costs from language training, cultural training as well as on-the-job training itself. They also noticed higher than expected staff turnover, misappropriation of ideas and intellectual property (IP) as well as costs of overcoming poor infrastructure and the unit costs of international calls of longer call length than home calls and costs for local legal specialists as well as indirect costs from defections and disloyalty driven by customer dissatisfaction with offshore service and incidents of theft of customer data.
