When it comes to transcription services, companies want to hire an in-house team. They assume that it will be efficient and will get them results. However, that’s not the case. Online outsourcing of transcription services is far better than an in-house team. Here is why it’s better to have an online outsourcing transcription team.

Deadlines are the way of ensuring your productivity remains high. Once the staff starts missing deadlines, then the value of work decreases. An online outsourcing company will always meet deadlines and submit the work on time. You can even hire one overseas, that is ahead of your time, so you get the desired results fast.

Outsourcing online transcription services is not expensive. It depends on the part of the world the company comes from. Most of them are cheap if they are from Asia. But they do not compromise with the quality of work. Every company wants to cut short on some of the budget. And outsourcing costs is one of them. It is far less costly than hiring an in house team.

A company gets the services of experts when using an outsourcing transcription team. Most of the online transcription teams have a highly experienced staff that work efficiently and meet deadlines on time.

When a company uses outsourcing, the resources in the company get freed. The freer they are, the more focused they are. And the staff can focus on their priority and finish their work.

Outsourcing a transcription team has many advantages; a company saves capital expenses, gets results in time, and also increases the productivity of the staff.

Warehouse Jobs Booming Due to Online Sales

Amidst a surge in e-commerce sales, warehouse operators, such as FedEx and Amazon, are scrambling to hire workers across the United States. As the labor market has yet to fully recover from the effects of the pandemic, this could prove to be a saving grace for many who have struggled to find work in recent months. Overall employment is still down in the U.S; almost 11 million are still seeking employment since the beginning of quarantine. However, employment in the warehousing and storage sector is actually higher than pre-Coronavirus levels. As the holiday season approaches, these numbers will only continue to go up; a positive signal of the rebounding U.S economy.

Job Availability

Brick-and-mortar retailers have been hit particularly hard by the pandemic, having to furlough or release hundreds of thousands of workers since early March. And with the economic downturn, there were not too many job positions opening up. Now, warehouse businesses that order, pack, and ship products are in a hiring frenzy as online sales are projected to reach $196 billion in the period from November to January. Online and physical stores alike experience increased activity during the holiday season, but with consumers avoiding brick-and-mortar locations because of the virus, more and more shoppers are relying on Amazon, FedEx, and UPS to deliver their products.

Typically, there is a temporary hiring phase for these businesses during the holidays to keep up with demand. However, many experts believe the massive shift towards online purchasing will be somewhat permanent. Already, many of the major players in the shipping and storage industry are planning for an avalanche of orders this holiday season, so more and more temporary hires are converting to full-time  positions. UPS has added over 100,000-holiday  workers on top of the tens of thousands it hired earlier in the year. Amazon plans on hiring more than 100,000 seasonal workers in addition to 1,000 new warehouses across the country. Also FedEx is seeking 75,000 temporary employees, a 27% increase from its 2019 seasonal hiring.

Proactive Hiring

To prepare for the expected holiday boom, e-commerce businesses have begun an early hiring process. Up through August alone, there were almost six times as many job postings for seasonal positions on the job platform Wonolo. Coincidently, wages have also jumped nearly 16% to $14.18 an hour. Trucking companies are also expected to look for early hires before the holiday season. Many truck drivers have left their jobs due to the virus and retirement, and the transportation industry has struggled to fill the demand for drivers. The average starting wage for drivers at UPS is expected to go up to $30 an hour, but as the market becomes more competitive, that wage may increase even more.

The pandemic still has a grip on brick-and-mortar stores. What used to be quick and easy trips to the store are now complicated and stressful as masks are required and consumers are wary of contracting the virus. With the excess demand shifted to e-commerce, storage and shipping companies need all the extra help they can get to fulfill orders before the holidays are over. Although overall employment is still way below pre-virus levels, many Americans are finally finding employment again.
