Title variants
Languages of publication
The position of enterprises on the market depends largely on how they react to ongoing changes. Focusing on the core business of the company requires a lot of effort. For this reason, additional or side activities are carried out by external companies. Outsourcing is increasingly becoming a strategic choice of the way the company operates. One of the examples of using outsourcing is delegating HR tasks. At the beginning, the theoretical aspects of outsourcing were presented in general terms, while in the further part, issues related to HR outsourcing, in particular – definitions, benefits from the implementation of outsourcing and the applied methodology were discussed.
