People often assume outsourcing and outstaffing are the same things

People often assume outsourcing and outstaffing are the same things. Let’s figure out the difference.


Outsourcing is the practice of having workers from another company perform a certain job for you. Outsourcing is an alternative to creating

your in-house department because your contractor will do the whole scope of work – not just a task or two.


Outstaffing is a type of contracting when a third-party team or worker, being officially employed by another company, performs the work for a client.

Clients often choose outstaffing when they already have their tech team but lack some experts, so a task can’t be handled internally.

The main difference between Outsourcing and Outstaffing lies in who manages a team performing your tasks.

In OUTSOURCING it’s usually a project manager of the hired team who directs and controls the full scope of work.

In OUTSTAFFING clients manage their extended team themselves, as it is fully at their disposal.

Most entrepreneurs think they can do it all and it can really stall the growth of the business.

It’s always more cost-effective to outsource everything but your core business processes. You’ll save money, avoid stress, and spend your energy working on things you ENJOY!
