Offshore Staffing

Offshore staffing has a bevy of benefits, not least the potential for up to 60% cost savings.

Our offshore staffing services can help boost your company’s manpower and cost savings with minimal risk and a transparent cost structure. We consider ourselves more than an outsourcing company – we’re your outsourcing partner.

Offshore staffing isn’t just about cost savings (though the cost savings are obviously one of the biggest benefits). It also gives you access to an entirely new pool of talent and can help your business work smarter in an increasingly competitive business landscape.

Our offshore staffing services have helped more than 220 companies around the world operate in Sri Lanka easily and effectively.

What’s involved in offshore staffing to Sri Lanka?

Our offshore staff leasing services not only give you access to a vetted pool of talent in Sri Lanka – you also get to hand-pick your own team and select the level of control you want.

Your team in Sri Lanka is legally employed and managed by us, but they’re dedicated to you and they report to you.

  • You choose how you want to communicate with your offshore staff (whether this is Zoom, Skype, email, phone or on-site visits).
  • You choose whether you want an expat, or a team of expats, to be alongside your Sri Lankan-based team. Many larger companies that we have worked with, as well as clients with sensitive processes, prefer this as it gives them a higher level of control.
  • No matter how you set things up, you’ll have a GSIT account manager as your point of contact through it all.

We use our offshoring know-how to lay the right foundations for you – without telling you how you should run your business or forcing you to use different tools and processes.

Sourcing and finding your offshore team

If you think it sounds complex, don’t worry, offshore staffing is easy. In fact, the process is similar to how you’d hire talent locally.

We’ll help you work out what your hiring needs are and prepare detailed job profiles. Then our recruitment team will source potential candidates, run through the initial screening processes, then present you with our recommended shortlist. You can then screen the candidates so you can make an informed decision.

Setting up your offshore staff

You’ll work with our IT department to set up everything that’s required for your offshore staffing needs. Your GSIT account manager will work with you on the operations and management side. We’ll help you identify key performance indicators, performance targets and reporting structures for your offshore staff. Once everything is ready to go, we’ll provide the complete array of management and support functions needed to help you run an effective offshore team.

Benefits of offshore staffing for your business

The benefits we mentioned earlier are just the tip of the iceberg.
