Outsourcing is a contractual agreement between two organizations that involves the exchange of service, manpower, and payments (Overby, S., 2007). It is the transfer of individuals or assets from one organization to another. Simply, an outsourcing means delegating the control of serving agents to any private organization. Outsourcing might be a cost saving technique of an organization that helps it get portions of works done by transferring the work to outsiders. However, there must be signed agreement between the needy and the provider, regarding outsourcing. For example: Suppose, a Human Resource company named Kantipur Management Pvt. Ltd. has a contract with a distributor company named United Distributors Nepal. The Kantipur Management provides needed employees to the United Distributors. Also, the Kantipur Management is the responsible agents for releasing the salary of those individuals whom they refer as employees to the General Distributors. This is the general concept for outsourcing, prevailing in Nepal.

1. United Distributors Nepal

2. EB Pearls

The people who come to KMPL asking for job, thus is referred to the UDN to fulfill vacancies, regarding their eligibility. The UDN pays agreed amount of money to the KMPL for their service. However, the salary and certificates of the selected employee will be released according to the agreement by the KMPL, not by the UDN. This is how, they are facilitating each other.

EB Pearls

After its establishment in 2005, EB Pearls has grown rapidly as has been one of the biggest digital serving agents. Besides Nepal, the company’s offices are also situated in the UK and Australia. More than 150 people are working for this IT Company according to the recent findings. The belief of EB Pearls is “Service is a religion and clients are GOD”.
