During Covid-19 it has become clear for all of us that era of remote work arrived.

Many IT giants closed their offices and went home to continue creating great products.

The ones who switched online survived, while others went straight to the Mariana Trench.

I bet many of you thought, “Ah, it will end in 3 weeks, and all will be back to normal”. But now. It’s our new normal. Our walking for groceries became www.supermarketnearby.smth, and our visits to restaurants turned into www.ordertastyfood.quick.

As the businesses switched online, the employees also turned their homes into offices, their stand-ups into Google Meet meetings.

Okay, it depends. When we switched online, I felt that most of the teammate's productivity increased, and their availability became higher. And it’s fantastic.

> The work-from-home jobs trend attained a significant push due to the recent pandemic-related disruptions. Moreover, amidst the ‘Great Resignation’, the number of professionals tending to work from home rather than back to offices is rising. In fact, it is not a surprise that 34% of employees say they are willing to take a 5% pay cut if allowed to work in the comfort of their homes.

Remote working ability breaks the borders, now it’s okay that our employees can be outside of our country, region, or even.. continent. Who cares where employees are working, if they are not in the office and do their job at the highest perk?

Closing offices and going home still requires continuous hiring of new people and here is where remote work comes with all its beauty.

But how to still hire the right people? How to feel their emotions exactly as in live interviews? Let’s talk a little bit about Outsourcing and Outstaffing.


Outsourcing is the type of cooperation where the source provider and client agree on a project-based business model which means that usually, the client entrusts the outsourcing company the whole project from A to Z. The client does not need to worry and has access to the development team itself (although he can of course). Outsourcing is a more stress-free cooperation type as the client doesn’t need to manage staff, care about processes, rent an office, and all the headaches it can bring.


- no need to care about development processes, planning, and testings

- no need to build a team, rent an office, hire a team and managers

- can perfectly fit MVP’s, and single projects, making separate department

- if someone leaves the team, he can be easily replaced by the source provider


- the client usually doesn’t know the developers themselves

- don’t see the internal processes, team working process


Outstaffing is a type of remote cooperation where clients hire professionals from another company, without the need to care about the hiring process and finding candidates. In this case, the client is taking care of management, about employee salary. The benefit of this is full control of the persons who work on the project.

Outstaffing is better applicable for the following companies:

- The ones which already have an IT team and want to extend it

- The ones who want to build up the new IT department in an existing company


The final decision should be made based on the company profile, there is no universal solution for all companies. We will be happy to assist you in making the right decision.
