Why do companies Nearshore?
The nearshore model is described as any outsourcing location "near" to its primary market (i.e. Eastern European countries to Western European Countries). Team Extension® takes this model and expands on it by adding the American way of doing business and the Swiss management of their talent by providing constant supervision of their resources. This model promotes the following advantages to our clients:
- Proximity and Time Zone
- Cultural Affinity and Ease of Doing Business
- Cost Savings
- Managing Expectations
- Easiness in adaptation regarding projects
- Access to rare, valuable and specialized talent
- Protection over client IP
- Clients can focus on their core business
These benefits represent the most elemental form of value proposition for a nearshore offering, since they are seemingly available for every company that establishes in a nearshore location, and for a seasoned global sourcing professional can be easily justifiable.
Why are Freelancers walking away from being independent?At a glance freelancing has been viewed as a liberating way to earn a living where the freelancer has total control of their time. While this type of working environment is highly praised it comes with many disadvantages. Many freelancers can go several days without having any face-to face interactions with anyone. This kind of complete solitude doesn’t work, life without colleagues can be lonely and uninspiring. Even small things, like the lack of small talk, can leave a freelancer lonely. In addition to feeling lonely and not a part of team a freelancer is always worrying about his/her next project in order to keep their financial situation afloat. Reasons such as these are driving freelancers to join back into the corporate world where they can start to feel part of a team again and gain financial security. We at Team Extension® need our resources to find happiness and, in turn, career success.
