LAGUNA NIGEL, Calif., March 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Employee staffing firm Synergroup is seeing a major uptick of interest from companies nationwide hoping to fill business IT positions with U.S. workers, says Mark Jennings, the firm's vice-president.
According to Jennings, interest in hiring American computer specialists rather than outsourcing those jobs overseas has sharply increased in recent months - something he equates to the economy and the costs involved in offshoring jobs.
"What employers have discovered is the less-than-perfect fit overseas personnel provide their own business operations," notes Jennings. "On a variety of levels - including communication, productivity and employee turnover - outsourcing too often fails to deliver savings. It simply comes down to unrealistic expectations."
In the current economy American businesses are finding it much more cost-effective to tap native expertise rather than going overseas or even nearshore, he adds.
"American computer programmers working remote, for instance, will often accept hourly wages that are highly competitive with workers from Bangalore - especially if the full cost of offshoring is factored in."
Jennings points out that beyond cost considerations, the public relations price businesses pay in shipping American jobs overseas - especially in an election year - are not inconsequential. He notes that debate about economic issues tends to increase local community focus on corporate hiring policies. Patriotism may not be a factor in the decision making of some firms - but with others it cannot be ignored.
"What we're hearing from clients seeking IT personnel is that a cost-point has been crossed. Hiring American is now both good policy and good economics."
