Why Local Outsourcing is a Smart Business Move in 2023

Amid inflation, ongoing supply chain challenges, and concerns over a possible recession, it seems that dealing with economic unknowns will be a key theme for businesses in 2023.

One strategy to stay competitive is to outsource certain time-consuming tasks to a third-party provider, such as assembly services, kitting services, fulfillment services, or packaging services. Ohio Valley Goodwill’s Industrial Services Division offers it all “” and our outsourcing services are based locally in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Here are three reasons why local outsourcing might be a smart move for your business in 2023:

#1: Lower Overhead Costs

Outsourcing gives business owners access to a skilled workforce at a significantly lower cost than if they were to hire and train employees in-house. In addition to labor, outsourcing may also include warehouse space and specialized equipment. Because your company won’t have to invest in these resources and resulting overhead costs, you can free up funds for other business goals.

If your business experiences fluctuating or seasonal demand, local outsourcing can help you remain agile in 2023. Partnering with a trusted outsourcing provider allows your business to scale up or down as needed, without having to lay off or recruit employees.

#2: Better Communication and Collaboration

Choosing an outsourcing provider in close proximity to your business isn’t just convenient; it can facilitate smoother communication and collaboration between teams. With the ability to meet in person to discuss projects, oversee ongoing work, and provide instant feedback, partnering with a local Cincinnati outsourcing provider like Ohio Valley Goodwill can lead to more efficient processes with less miscommunication and a higher quality output overall!

#3: Free Up Time for Core Competencies

Between a labor shortage and a widening skills gap, many businesses will find it challenging to secure the right talent in 2023. As your business grows, you may realize your staff needs extra help in areas that aren’t necessarily in their current skillset, like assembly, kitting, fulfillment, or packaging.

Outsourcing these non-core business activities to a third-party provider allows your in-house team to concentrate on their core competencies “” what they do best! Instead of worrying about learning new skills to fill the gaps, your employees can improve their existing capabilities and focus on business growth.
