Offshoring: Not just for the first movers




This articles reports the findings of the 2003 Offshoring survey that was conducted in order to identify key trends and best practices, including how companies made offshore sourcing decisions and how they planned to handle potentially explosive issues around jobs displacement, community relations, protectionist ‘backlash’ against offshoring, and workers’ retraining/skills development, etc. Thirty-eight firms from North America and Europe participated in the survey.
