Nearshoring: bringing outsourcing closer to home

Your company is ready for its next big step but resources in Belgium are scarce. The solution is simple. You turn to outsourcing. For years, companies have looked towards offshoring to fill the gap. Unfortunately, many have faced problems of which poor communication, cultural differences and lack of expertise are only a few. Well, the answer is here and it’s called “nearshoring”.

In need of resources?

In short, it’s where you find adequate resources to:

  • Supplement existing operations
  • Replace your existing needs
  • Operate autonomously on projects assigned by you

With offshoring, you would look to Asia but since the labour costs have been rising this is no longer as attractive. Nearshoring solutions are found in Eastern Europe, in the south of Europe, North Africa.

There’s more than offshoring

The most common problems with offshoring are poor communication and cultural differences. Communicating with people closer to home means similar work ethics. It also means more direct contact as you’re working in the same time zone.

Looking for regions that lean towards yours will reduce the cultural differences. Although the importance of expectation management is not to be underestimated, being on the same page will help you strive towards the same goals.
