Onsite outsourcing by Eastern European consultants - Reduced costs with same quality
Onsite outsourcing companies provide skilled personnel without onerous overhead expenses. Specialists are often hired in Eastern European countries, where costs per working hour for employees are lower, yet the quality remains the same, or even higher. Experiences with developers from countries such as Belarus or Ukraine are known to be very good, as a result of their effective education systems and sound work ethics.
Hiring of Eastern European developers – Let them be outsourced
There are some difficulties when it comes to hiring workers from Eastern European countries. There is considerable paperwork and administration in exchanges between the host country and the home country, such as getting a visa, validating the employee’s University diploma, and accommodation in the host country. The benefits from cheaper employees can disappear. This is why it is better to find an experienced company to take care of these activities for you.
