OUTSOURCING FOR SMALL BUSINESSES: TOP TRENDS OF 2019

The field of outsourcing is still not the most popular go-to choice when it comes to hiring specialists. However, its growing popularity is undeniable taking into consideration that the outsourcing industry is now worth $86 billion. And since it’s one of the most dynamic industries, being informed about its trends is crucial.

Robotics will become one of the most popular outsourcing fields. By the year 2030, artificial intelligence may take up around 800 million jobs which sounds rather scary. Work which consists of routine and repetitive tasks is especially at risk. More companies will be storing data online, so cloud technologies will be developing actively. It’s estimated that by 2020, half of all companies will be hosting data on cloud services.

Socially Responsible Outsourcing is the future trend as well. Companies while hiring are supposed to take into consideration the group of socioeconomically disadvantaged specialists. Following this trend is especially crucial if a company has millennials as a target audience. Data security is an essential trend as well since 70% of digital devices are currently classified as ‘having serious security vulnerabilities’. A hacker attack happens every 39 seconds, so cybersecurity has to be taken especially seriously.
