The Interview Wednesday, March 7 th, 2007 Lisa Gallagher, Vice President of Operations Joined the company October 2000 Responsible for all aspects of Hire Right’s operations, including occupational health services, background verification and customer service departments Cal State Fullerton Alumnus After she began working with the Indian market, she joined the Hunger Project to end chronic hunger in Bangladesh, Sub-Saharan Africa, and the smaller villages in Latin America.
Outsourcing Activities HireRight, Inc. strongly believes in offshoring and outsourcing and has activities in Estonia Russia India
Estonia Production – parts of software production is sent to Estonia to be produced but more security related software production is sent back to the US for finalization. Does product development and testing Over 50 employees
Moscow, Russia Builds software solutions Mostly does modular pieces of production to keep intellectual property in the US Equivalent to 10 full time employees working for Hire Right, Inc.
India This is the largest part of Hire Right’s outsourcing and requires the most attention Subcontract to company in India which has approximately 150 full-time employees working for Hire Right Majority of Hire Right’s entry-level work-load is done in India India works to verify employment & education through the internet and will handle other screening processes for Hire Right
United States Screeners in U.S. handle the calling for verifications (due to Indian accents which might turn off customers and applicants) All server information stays in the U.S. Production of intellectual property and sensitive aspects of software done in the U.S. All administration takes place in U.S. U.S. provides specs to Estonia and Moscow for production
Outsourcing by Competitors Less than 10% of the competitors outsource Reasons for not outsourcing: Lack of control Cultural issues Fear of what customers will think Fear of the unknown Takes a great deal of work to outsource Companies have experienced problems with outsourcing sometimes because they do not take careful, measured approach Hire Right, Inc. made a partnership with their subcontractor so all are committed to success
Benefits of Outsourcing Substantial financial benefits and cost savings Has brought down the cost of doing business significantly High quality of output Outsourcing has allowed Hire Right, Inc. to increase their customer base in other countries. Started with 42 countries but now providing services in over 200 nations.
Benefits of Outsourcing Able to get college graduates who will work for less Cannot find this in U.S. very easily – most graduates do not work for that little of money or the turnover is very high More aligns with what the customer is willing to pay and what Hire Right is willing to spend Culture in India is to follow directions thoroughly To ensure this, Hire Right created processes
Issues with Outsourcing in India Original CEO of the subcontractor is Indian but has worked in the U.S. before therefore he understands the issues faced by the U.S. firms and is easy to deal with. Production issues led to renegotiation of the work contract. Workers wanted to reduce the production quota New contract allows for payment per piece of output This secures the profitability of Hire Right, Inc. Factored in incentives and penalties
Issues with Outsourcing in India Lower production output Seems to not do as well with problem solving or thinking for themselves High turnover, especially for woman who are unmarried and still live at home Work hours contribute to this: they work US business hours
Impact of U.S. Economy Believes that there is a positive impact Most US multinationals are outsourcing now Lowers costs to businesses are passed on to consumers More purchasing power Unemployment is at an all-time low Many positions available in growing retail sector for those displaced by outsourcing Most outsourcing affects entry-level workers
