The Benefits of Non-Remote Work in Business Process Outsourcing

Updated: Mar 5


In the era of digital transformation, the business process outsourcing (BPO) industry has seen a significant shift towards remote work. However, non-remote work still holds a substantial place in the BPO landscape that many businesses seem to have forgotten about.

Enhanced Collaboration and Communication


One of the primary advantages of non-remote work is the ease of collaboration and communication. When teams work in the same physical location, they can communicate more effectively, leading to improved efficiency and productivity. Face-to-face interactions offer a collaborative environment that can be challenging to replicate in a remote setting. Using our own data, we've found that a non-remotely managed team will always yield more efficient results both in business and in the social counterparts of the job.


Streamlined Workflow


Non-remote work allows for a streamlined workflow. Tasks are often completed faster due to the immediate availability of resources and quick resolution of queries. This leads to increased competitiveness within the industry and a reduction in overall operational costs. For most BPOs, this feels counterintuitive because of the added cost of managing staff in a physical location, however, we are here to tell you otherwise: With a physical headquarters and teams managed in a single large office, our productivity and employee satisfaction go hand in hand.


Access to Infrastructure


Non-remote work provides employees with access to infrastructure and resources that they might not have when working remotely. This includes access to high-speed internet, state-of-the-art technology, and a conducive work environment, which can significantly enhance productivity and from the employees side lower their expenses.


Building a Strong Company Culture


A strong company culture is easier to build and maintain in a non-remote work setting. Regular interactions among employees foster a sense of community and belonging, which can boost morale and employee satisfaction. Moreover, the socialization between employees is a known productivity booster that goes a long way toward making your teams more efficient.


With more than 37% of small businesses of the world already outsourcing at least one part of their business function, it's no wonder that the need for BPOs will continue to increase. It's important that this increase does not affect a drop in the quality of work provided by outsourcing companies; and one way to ensure that your BPO meets the higher quality standards is to create a good and sociable environment for your employees.
