Abstract
The drive for global competitiveness and business survival has led many organisations to experiment with and deploy varying resource management strategies. Outsourcing of activities is one such strategy adopted by many organisations in the last thirty years. Outsourcing has been deployed by many U.S. companies since the 1970s, but not without some controversy due to its effective cost-cutting that tends to affect workers the most. India, China, Nigeria and other African countries have joined the growing list of countries in the Outsourcing business.

The HR function has a central role to play in the process of Outsourcing in the organisation. The HR practitioners must, at least, be aware of the Outsourcing process, its challenges and be equipped to support the management in addressing them. The HR function must demonstrate this in order to go beyond being an aspiring business partner to become one of the drivers of the business.

This paper outlines the reasons for Outsourcing, its different types and benefits for the organisation. The paper also highlights the key issues in the global practice and provides insights, based on available data, on the Nigerian industry outsourcing practice. In Nigeria, the industry is as its nascent stage and not much data is available across sectors of the economy for in-depth analysis. In spite of this, the Federal Government’s policy framework on Outsourcing and Outsourcing practices involving Zain Nigeria and Bharti Airtel in the telecommunications sector as well as Shell Nigeria in the oil and gas sector have been reviewed. The role of the HR function as the ‘conscience’ of the organisation in managing the challenges of outsourcing is then discussed. The HR function as the ‘conscience’ of the organisation would be more ethical, more humane, more tolerant, less egoistical, more helpful, more compliant of…...

...discuss about Mangrove Planting. This activity was held on Pamarawan Island which is still part of City of Malolos. They also let us know about the call time and venue for meet up before going to the terminal. The call time is 5:30 in the morning in Malolos Cathedral, but because I already know how to go there and it is along the way, I asked if it is okay not to go to Malolos Cathedral. It’s better for me not to, because it would be hassle for me and also to save time. Unexpectedly, our section 3B is not yet on the Cathedral. Though they are also late, I didn’t make it to arrive on time and reach them. When they drifted, that’s the time I already came and I had reach nothing but the other community from Pamarawan. So they left me but they advised me to ride a boat separately. I have no choice but to wait for the boat to fill the other passengers to reach 20. While I’m waiting, I’ve seen another Student from Tourism riding a tricycle. When I saw him, I started smiling and it makes me to cheer up, because I have a companion on being late. I talk to him immediately for me not to feel bored and uncomfortable. He’s easy to get along with and I enjoyed talking to him, it helps me not to feel that it has a long trip. By the way, he’s a student from BSTM 1-C but I forgot his name. We have waited for about two hours, so the boat driver asked us if it is okay to double the payment of the fare for us to get immediately to Pamarawan. It takes 45 minutes before we reached the......

...relationship and close the sale. On one hand, you need to applaud the salesman for learning more about the customer and how to engage the customer in a relationship. The ethical issue arises because of the apparent subterfuge of the salesman in engaging the customer and developing the relationship. The ethical issue is raised to a higher level when the sales manager sends an email to the entire sales team applauding the salesman and describing all of the subterfuge in detail. James Borg, author of Persuasion: The Art Of Influencing People, lauds the salesman for taking the steps to engage the customer on a personal basis. However, he thinks the sales manager should “be hauled in front of the company’s Idiocy Review Board for sending an ill-advised, potentially damaging e-mail.” Don Peppers and Martha Rogers, the coauthors of Rules to Break and Laws to Follow: How Your Business Can Beat the Crisis of Short-Termism, flat out declare the saleman’s tactics as unethical. They think the company should immediately fire the sales manager, discipline the salesman, send a message to all employees firmly asserting that deceiving customers or prospects is not the Company’s way of doing business, and rewrite the ethics code. Kirk O. Hanson, the University Professor of Organizations and Society and the executive director of the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University in California, thinks the company should publicly reprimand the salesman and doubts that......

...monthly deposit of my entire salary, and arrangement which, I admit, has only been in place for eight years. You are to be commended for seizing that brief window of opportunity and also for debiting my account with $50 by way of penalty for the inconvenience I caused to your bank. My thankfulness springs from the manner in which this incident has caused me to rethink my errant financial ways. You have set me on the path of fiscal righteousness. No more will our relationship be blighted by these unpleasant incidents, for I am restructuring my affairs, taking as my model the procedures, attitudes and conduct of your very bank. I can think of no greater compliment and I know you will be excited and proud to hear it. To this end, please be advised about the following changes. First, I have noticed that whereas I personally attend to your telephone calls and letters, when I try to contact you I am confronted by the impersonal ever-changing, pre-recorded, faceless entity which your bank has become. From now on I, like you, choose only to deal with a flesh and blood person. My mortgage and loan repayments will, therefore and hereafter, no longer are automatic, but will arrive at your bank by cheque, addressed personally and confidentially to an employee of your branch, whom you must nominate.

I want it to bring me real pleasure. What can be better than doing your favorite work and feeling satisfaction just because of doing it. Now, I do not have any concrete job as one desired, but I want it to be connected with English language. Maybe it will be something concerning with the Ukrainian international relations. My studying at the university is one of the way of reaching this dream. At this period of life it is the best that I can do – do my best to become really good in language usage. My family help me a lot in reaching my dream. Actually they advised me to enter the foreign languages department. It is they who support me in the times when I am sick and tired of my studying. Being optimistic, I see only positive aspects in my future profession. What may be bad about communication with people?! I think it is better than operating some machines or curing animals or what not. I believe that my future career will be related of the needs of Ukrainian society. Nowadays, Ukraine is at the threshold of eurointegration…this first of all means that Ukraine will develop international relations with other European countries…and It means that I will have very busy schedule. Done properly, this work will make a big contribution into the development of ukrainian society. We got......

Which of those reasons can be argued to arise from ecommerce? Reasons authors give to offer video CD sales to be distributed according to power law is that many brick and mortar stores simply do not have enough shelf space to display their titles. Online stores such as “Amazon.com” do not need to worry about shelf space due to the fact that they store their titles in large warehouses. The reason of long tail effect, e-commerce sites can afford to be under dogs and super stars gaining much of the bulk of sales. Q3.
