Build your digital workforce
Crafting a comprehensive digital workforce strategy mean you need a holistic perspective, including not only permanent employees but also involving contingent workers and outsourcing projects. This approach will ensure access to a diverse array of skills essential for achieving your objectives. As part of this strategic process, considering the offshoring of certain workforce components becomes essential. However, when embarking on a global quest for talent it’s hard to know where to begin.

Engaging skills from outside your country does mean there are significant taxation considerations. Depending on how offshore workers are involved, you might face substantial expenses if their work patterns and engagement preferences classify them as 'employees' under the legal framework of that country. For instance, if contingent workers are mandated to work on-site using the company's equipment and supplies or receive bonuses for successfully completing projects, it could lead to notable tax implications.
It's essential to consider the pros and cons of offshoring to specific locations, taking into account cultural nuances. For instance, in countries with a more formal and hierarchical workplace culture, tech workers may be inclined to follow instructions without raising potential issues or questioning the brief. If the project demands critical or creative thinking, exploring alternative geographic locations should be considered.
