Let us share some of our useful tips with you anyway:

Always go for teams, not individuals.

Leasing individuals may sometimes be a good way to start, but in the long run it leads to problems with lack of responsibility, sense of belonging and high attrition rate.

Take care of proper paperwork.

If you need some help with with paperwork feel free to use our non disclousure agreement and master service agreement templates.

Be wary when they promise you to bring ANY number of great specialists ANY time you want. It sounds fishy.

Great talents do not sit on the bench waiting for work to come their way, they like to be on the field.

Take into account your employees buy-in.

Introduce outsourcing properly to them and address their fears and doubts. Ultimately success depends on good cooperation between the employees of both parties.

Project knowledge transfer is very important, but it’s not everything.

Be sure that outsourced team members truly understand your business by introducing them to your organization the same way you would introduce your own new employees (you can even reuse some starter training packages). Onsite workshops are also very helpful.
