Trust But Verify When Outsourcing

Outsourcing design is on the riseImage by joshdamon via FlickrWhen you decide upon business outsourcing for project needs it is important to verify who the people are who will be working in your business. You should verify the employees as you would your own.

If you run backgrounds tests on your employees, then you should do the same with an outsourcing business’s employees.

It will be hard for you to demand that outsourcing employees agree to a background check or a drug test.

What you can do is use only a company who will provide the proof to you the people are acceptable. You should get a name of every person who will be entering your business working on the project.

Sometimes when there are a lot of people entering the business from an outsourced company it can be confusing who is with the company and who is in the building without authorization.

Be sure you know each employee who works for the outsourced company and provide them with temporary badges to wear. This way, anyone who is not wearing one of the temporary badges can be questioned with reason.

Your employees have a right to feel safe at their place of work. You cannot bring in people who have dangerous backgrounds to work on an outsourced project for you.

You should verify all of the provided information and know every person who will be working on an outsourced project. All of these employees from the business outsourcing company should be properly introduced to your staff so everyone feels comfortable with the people walking through the halls.
