Outsourcing Job Transfers Evaluated in New Survey


NEVADA CITY, CA, Dec. 23, 2004 -- A new survey will evaluate the impact IT workers face as a result of job transfers mandated by outsourcing initiatives in their companies. Results will address how honest and upfront executive leadership is about the decision to outsource; how compensation and benefits are affected by such a transfer; and what advantages and disadvantages there are to working for the service provider vs. the company doing the outsourcing.
This survey is intended to be answered by individuals who have been transferred from a company or other type of organization to a service provider as part of an IT outsourcing contract.

“Outsourcing doesn’t mean the same thing as offshoring. In fact, a lot of mythology has developed around what you’re going to experience when you get moved to a service provider once an IT outsourcing contract has been signed,” said Editorial Director Dian Schaffhauser. “We believe this is the first such research endeavor to explore the topic. We hope to get at what the real experiences are for the people who go through such a transfer.”

IT workers and managers are invited to take the 10-minute confidential survey, which is located at:

Results will be published in early 2005.

Participants will receive copies of the results.

About, a Swallow Media publication, is a new online resource launching in January 2005, providing practical advice and case studies on IT outsourcing. Its mission: to provide project, business and IT leaders with tactical insights that can help ensure the success of their IT outsourcing initiatives.
