4 Ways Offshoring Helps You Take Back Your Time

Time is one of the most precious commodities in business, and most business leaders feel like they could use more of it. That’s why it stings to know that most employees spend as much as 20-40% of their time on non-revenue-generating activities. Or put another way, that’s one or two entire workdays that aren’t helping you boost your bottom line. 

One of the biggest time sucks for any company is hiring. On average, it takes anywhere from 42 to 52 days to fill one position at a cost of $4,000+ per employee. Plus, you’re losing money in terms of productivity for as long as that position remains unfilled. 

That’s why more companies are exploring the benefits of offshore hiring. Here are four ways offshore workers can help you scale your time. 

1. Access Ready-to-Work Candidates 

The road to hiring is a long one, with lots of pitstops and detours along the way. Today’s job market is moving fast, and many employers have reported candidates “ghosting” them on an interview or on the first day of work. When this happens, employers have to start the entire process over.  

When using an offshore hiring service, you don’t have to wonder about a candidate’s commitment to the job search. A ready-made pool of applicants gives you lots of talented employees to choose from. They’re actively searching for positions and are ready to work as soon as you make the offer. This way, you can spend time connecting with candidates that actually want to work instead of risking your precious time on candidates that might say yes to better offers before you can hire them. 

2. Shorten the Time to Hire 

Using an offshore hiring service like Thankz shortens your entire hiring timeline. Instead of figuring out paperwork and foreign taxes or vetting candidates, we’ve done most of the heavy lifting for you. Our process and technologies are tailored to the offshore labor market so that you don’t miss any crucial steps.  

Plus, with our growing pool of applicants, it takes less time to find a skilled employee that meets your criteria. Many of our customers can hire and onboard a candidate in as little as two weeks! 

3. Reduces Training Time 

Hiring offshore talent means choosing candidates with experience in their fields. Instead of training someone from scratch, you can choose candidates that are primed and ready to step into their roles and start performing immediately. With less time spent on training, you can use that extra time to make them feel welcome, offer upskilling opportunities, and focus on revenue-generating activities.
