I recently heard on one of the radios that Labour Ministry officials were not happy with emerging trneds of organisations to fire staff and outsource those services. They argued that it would be better to retain the staff and firing them would make them jobless. They have a point.

However outsourcing will obviously have positive effects for the organisations too like reduced labour costs (funerals, loans, etc). I think the ministry should look at ways in which to implement the outsourcing. A few years ago a company were outsourcing their security services. They struck a deal with the security organisation where at least 97% of the former company guards were now employed with the current security firm. There were casualties but very few. There are also other campanies that lay off skilled people like carpenters, plumbers, builders, etc and later on source those very same services from them.

So not all is lost when companies outsource!
