In the fast changing global corporate scenario the rationalization of organizational structure is now reigning supreme. And outsourcing has emerged to be a leading trend to facilitate this. Outsourcing reduces business operating costs.

"For Microsoft, outsourcing has been a way to temper the expansion of our work force & reduce management overhead. I hope this keeps us from growing big in the wrong areas and becoming ineffective through too much overhead." - Bill Gates on outsourcing (Source: Business @ the speed of light) Worldwide outsourcing services are set to exceed the $100 billion market: in 1998, spending topped $99 billion. Spending is expected to reach $151 billions by 2003. Corporate giants in the United States, Europe, and Japan prefer India for cost-effective and high-quality software solutions. We vouch for India and have established ourselves as big Indian player in all domains. We leverage the importance of India and offer the same to others, especially when it comes to Manpower Rationalization.

The reasons are obvious: Better Resource Utilization: It helps the companies focus on the area of their core competence. Thus the resources are utilized more efficiently without being diverted into other support activities.

Cost Saving: This means there is a sizeable saving in terms of cost. Companies are clearly finding that many more jobs can be done by others, better, more efficiently and even at a lower cost. Dell, Cisco and Nortel are familiar role models of how to use outsourcing to generate huge cost savings and also serve customers better.

Organizational efficiency: Facilitates and supports major organization change. Business Innovation: Improving and innovating in processes, skills and technology, while mediating financial risk through the vendor.

New market: Direct profit is generated through joint ventures and vendor partners. And, there is no doubt that more and more corporate majors are taking recourse to outsourcing as a means to bring in efficiency and economy in terms of size and operation.

So why not you?

Dear Rahul,
Manpower Rationalization is careful exercise whereby you need to freeze all fresh recruitment and do the SWOT analysis with employees. Then find out teh aptitude of the present employees what are they interested in. Then suit them by internal transfers. This way you will achieve all thsoe objectives of Manpower Rationalization i.e. Better Utilization of resources, Cost saving, Orgaizational Effeciciency and Explore New Markets.

Rationalisation refers to balancing the work load of manpower. There will be some peolple don't find enough time to finish there work and some others sleeping during working hours.
You need to reshuffle the duties and resposibilities od people inorder to utilise them better.
As Shushil said it rightly before going for new recruitment explore that job can be fullfilled with the existing resources.
You can use the help of Industrial Engineers in accesing the work load and balancing it.
