A new survey has shown that post-pandemic companies are looking to outsource again to access talent and save on corporate costs.
64% of IT companies adopt a new outsourcing strategy
In a recent survey of 300 IT leaders, more than half of business leaders outsource to access talent and save costs.
The survey, conducted by Amdaris, the Bristol-based software development specialist, found that 64% are adopting a new outsourcing strategy in the face of the pandemic. With 63% finding it difficult to find and hire strong talent, access to talent was a key reason behind the decision to outsource (54%). This was followed by the need to save costs (54%), access to knowledge and experience (41%) and project support (33%).
Additionally, 74% of companies believe that outsourcing can help improve or adopt better software development practices such as agile delivery and quality testing.
Global outsourcing to mitigate risk
“With the majority of IT executive budgets being invested in technology and talent, post-pandemic outsourcing appears to be holding its own as a solution to some of the biggest challenges we face today,” said Vlad Nanu, Co-CEO at Amdaris. “Organizations face a major challenge not only to find technical talent, but also to improve their digital skills and speed of development. The best technical skills are often found in markets outside of the UK such as Eastern Europe, which is known as a technology hub. Continued support for this region is particularly important at this time.”
Relocation of Ukrainian employees
To support Ukraine, the company relocated its Ukrainian employees from its Odessa plant to centers in neighboring countries. Amdaris also provides ongoing support to employees and their families affected by the war through daily check-ins and pastoral care. Amdaris has pledged to help the broader Ukrainian tech community by providing secure jobs to any tech professional forced to flee the country due to the ongoing conflict.
