With high costs on just about everything, many American companies have outsourced their business to foreign countries. While that outsourcing may be taking jobs away from local workers, the bottom line of said companies is they need to provide safe and healthy working conditions for those they employ.
While the practice of outsourcing this work to foreign countries often conjures up images of children working in sweat shops, the labor conditions of these overseas operations is much better than some perceive.
People that are happy at their jobs tend to be more productive than someone who is unhappy. Much like investors use Trade CFD to ensure healthy trading, companies that outsource their work have a responsibility to make sure the environment of their workforce is a healthy one.
There are repercussions for companies that do not provide safe and healthy environments and for those that do hire underage workers. Even in foreign countries, there are watchdog groups that make sure working conditions are tolerable. The reputation of companies that use underage workers or employ people in less than ideal conditions will be severely damaged if such practices are made public.
Respecting the human rights of employees in foreign countries is paramount to a company’s success in that country. Because the unemployment rate in some of these countries is extremely high, outsourced work will get applications from the best of the best. Quality work conditions attract quality workers that tend to stick with their jobs and do them in a capacity that goes above and beyond the call of duty.
