You may be asking yourself, “Can we afford to outsource all or part of our needs?”  A better question is, “Can you afford not to?”

Rarely is there “extra” budget for this type of initiative, however, utilizing contract staff may in fact make better business sense.

According to the principles of cost accounting, an employee actually costs their employer 2.4 – 3.3 times their base salary.  This includes expense allocations for items such as medical/dental insurance, worker’s comp insurance, liability insurance, 401k contribution, bonuses, payroll taxes, paid time off and their share of indirect costs (training, meeting expenses, office supplies, legal fees, technology services, office rent, corporate taxes, mobile devices, conferences/trade shows, etc.)

Using a service provider, only when needed, usually saves a company up to 40%, due to non-existent employee-related expenses.  If your $60K employee is really costing you $180K, wouldn’t you rather leverage them for more internally strategic tasks?
