Supporting a business while keeping the right level of focus on what makes that business special has always been a challenge. Now, a combination of factors is turning a headache into a migraine: the Great Resignation/Great Reshuffle, employee demands for more remote work and greater flexibility, positions requiring more specialized skills, and a slew of economic headwinds.

With recession worries and inflation concerns coming to the forefront, some companies are enforcing hiring freezes, laying off workers, and moving forward cautiously. In light of this situation, how can businesses find a way to get the right people with the right skills to drive growth—and even gain a competitive edge?

There’s no simple solution, but more middle market businesses are looking to outsourcing and managed services to cost-effectively get the skills they need without the burden of hiring full-time staff.

Not sure where to start? The answers to these eight common questions illustrate how outsourcing can meet the unique needs of middle market businesses and help you determine if working with an outsourcing firm or managed services provider is right for your business.
