Real insights about Offshoring in Australia

This in-depth report provides analysis and commentary on the current use and perceptions of offshoring in Australia. A survey was conducted with medium, large and listed businesses across different industries to determine if they have used offshore labour before and if they considered it a viable business strategy.

Interpreting various perceptions about Offshoring

The purpose of our survey was to investigate the experiences and attitudes of local businesses towards offshoring. As a business strategy, offshoring can deliver many benefits that keep businesses competitive globally at a lowered cost. However, it still suffers perception issues associated with its acceptance as a business strategy and the quality of work produced.

This industry-first report aims to answer questions about the perceptions held by medium and large businesses: Do businesses view offshoring as a positive strategy that can deliver growth and benefits to the economy, or is it viewed negatively? Does it impact on local employment opportunity and ultimately, does it have a detrimental impact on the economy? Does the quality of work delivered through offshoring increase or decrease when compared locally?
