In an effort to increase productivity, the United States has been embracing the outsourcing of some jobs.
As companies look to fill gaps in the workforce, some are turning to outsourcing to fill the gaps.
According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), nearly one-third of American workers are employed by outsourced firms.
« The majority of outsourcing jobs are related to health care and social assistance, including caring for people with disabilities, seniors and children, » the ILO said.
According a 2013 study by the National Bureau of Economic Research, the number of Americans working in outsourcing occupations has nearly doubled in the past five years.
« These occupations account for over a quarter of all jobs lost during the Great Recession, » the report said.
The U.S. has the world’s third-largest workforce in outsourcing, according to the McKinsey Global Institute.
« In the past few years, the U.K. has experienced a dramatic increase in the number and number of U. S. outsourcing jobs, » the McKinseys report said, noting that U.k. outsourcing was responsible for a total of 2.5 million jobs lost between 2007 and 2016.
The outsourcing boom is not limited to the U, though.
According the McKinys report, the outsourcing sector is a major contributor to the overall economy, contributing $1.6 trillion to the economy in 2016.
« More than $900 billion was spent by outsourcing firms in the U!
The U is also a major destination for U.s. outsourcing services, » the study found.
According for the McKinleys study, « a substantial percentage of the U s economy is located in the country, with the majority of U s outsourcing jobs related to finance and insurance, accounting, marketing, information technology, and supply chain management. »
While the number is a bit higher in the United Kingdom, it still represents a significant percentage of jobs lost.
Ks outsourcing industry has been growing at a relatively steady pace since 2010, when the economy contracted to the lowest level since the Great Depression, » McKinsey said.
However, there have been some recent changes.
In October, the British government announced a policy that would make it more difficult for companies to move operations abroad.
The change will come into effect on January 1, 2021, and will also apply to the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
The move was welcomed by many, but many also complained that the government is making it harder for companies that are based in the UAE or Bahrain to move their operations abroad for tax purposes.
The government also said it would ban the practice of outsourcing in the state of Washington, which currently has a law allowing the practice.
The British government is trying to fix that by changing the law to allow companies to hire foreign workers.
« British business leaders have been pushing the government to make the law more flexible, allowing companies to take on more workers if they need them, » a spokesperson for the British Foreign Office told The Washington Post.
