Default India’s turn to outsource

In a surprising reversal of job shifts, it is now India’s turn to outsource. In light of the recent uproar over jobs being offshored from wealthy countries into developing countries, this may be difficult to believe. However incredible it may seem like, it is a fact. No doubt, it comes as a refreshing break to hear of jobs generated by India, instead of for it.

New Delhi-based HCL Technologies is interested in recruiting hundreds of employees from Belfast and London for back office and helpdesk functions for the banking and retail industries.

Despite the rise of other offshoring destinations, it is apparent that developed and wealthy countries like UK too have their share of outsourcing market. After the scare stories over the loss of service sector jobs to India it must be sheer music, to British ears that Indian companies are investing in the UK.

However, this should not come as a surprise to market observers. History is repeating it self. What goes up has to come down and what goes down has to go up. In the current global economy, outsourcing to low cost countries has been creating an even spread of economical wealth. As the economically once poor countries become more stable, the seesaw has to balance out. This is to some extent what we are experiencing in this reversal of outsourcing jobs.

This does not mean India will be outsourcing all its work to developed countries. On the contrary, it means that as each recognizes the individual strengths of individual countries there will be a mutual flow of outsourcing jobs. When Jake does what he is good at, Raman will likewise do what he is good at.

your kidding right tons of people in india have computers. wealthy business owners run sites there to avoid us laws. south america is loaded with "illeagal" sites expect that us laws dont apply there and the police down there dont give a crap.

I hate outsourcing, some genious at my Dad's work decided it would be a good idea to outsource the help desk to India, ya well when someone calls them they just assign the problem to a random technician who might not even now the server that the problem originated from, its stupid.

India is developing about as fast as China is right now, which is at an astounding rate.

India is just a way for businesses to make a few extra dollars, and also loose business. Dell lost my business because of their outsourced "tech support" which is crap. That's not the only reason, but I can't stand hearing some guy with a thick accent reading off a que card. I'd rather pay another few hundred dollars for a new computer than spend 4 hours on the phone trying to get a replacement part.
I hate outsourcing and wish the govt. would do something about it. I don't mind if jobs are outsourced to canada, but to south america, india, china (a communist nation who poisioned dog food!), and other nations. It seems like corporate america would rather be based overseas, and then come whining to their buddies in congress when they need breaks. Not fair I tell you!

Hmmm I find it a little hard to believe that they would outsource to the UK, I mean what would their motives be? to pay higher salaries than they would if the employed people from their own country!

the motive is expertise.

the idea being that any old Muppet can answer a phone and log a call and tell someone that someone will get back to them.

then they just send the call onto someone else who actually knows how to fix it.

Well i dont think indaia will be outsourcing any time soon but heres my opinion and whar i think is gonna happen
as india and other developing countries develop the standards of living are going to raise and as that happen people are going to start demanding mopre money to do the jobs then the cos of jobs in india is gonna be the same as in england and other MEDC's and so in the end you end up with it easier for British companies to move back to the uk or outsource to another LEDC and then their economy will get better and the standards of living etc
i dont think this is gonna happen in my lifetime , maybe a few hundred years till this happens
