Offshore Software Outsourcing means job creation is mustThursday, December 22, 2005
Offshore Software Outsourcing is a reality of the 21st century and inevitable for any country, the same country must create jobs to replace those jobs being lost. Offshore Software Outsourcing invariably results in the loss of lots of jobs. So the country should focus on creating opportunity in their own country to provide more jobs, so that, those who have lost jobs will get new opportunities in the future
Lots of remarks of experts come against the backdrop of a growing outcry in their own country against the loss of jobs by Offshoring to low-cost locations like India and china. A large number of foreign companies are shipping jobs in Offshore Software Development, BPO and call centers to their Indian subsidiaries or to contractors in India or china with a mind set of cutting costs by the way of Offshore Outsourcing.
The reality of 21st century international economics is that, these kinds of Offshore Outsourcing and dislocations will take place. So it is better to minimize this process and provide new opportunities for employees. This may be a major issue that countries like U.S. will be focusing on in the months ahead and also might focus on too much Offshore Outsourcing.
Credit of Offshore Outsourcing really goes to the Internet system and broadband capabilities, so that information and services can be moved around the world. It helps the countries getting connected to other parts of the world at the speed of light, and the people are taking advantage of that kind of capability. This process really helps Offshore Outsourcing. Offshore Outsourcing of jobs in the United States to Mexico, to China, to other parts of the world is done as the global world develops drastically.
One thing is sure in Offshore Outsourcing is that the people from any country gets the opportunity to serve Worldwide needs. Outsourcing of work overseas is commonly known as Offshoring. That’s why it has come in for criticism from both legislators and workers’ unions because of loosing the jobs and less compensation. It really is strange that on the one hand people are talking about openness and Outsourcing of markets, and on the other hand the countries like U.S. are planning to ban Offshore Outsourcing.
As far as Offshore Outsourcing is concern, it can also be done that the big Outsourcing countries like India and China should allow more and more FDI and create more job opportunities to the countries from where the Offshore Outsourcing is done.
