In addition, we are continuously creative, and our services are backed by a team of highly qualified professionals using cohesive information technology-based systems and procedures. Our corporate outsourcing approach is based on international best practices and standards:
We Present Ourselves as a Business Partner and not just a Service Provider: Besides affordable price, expertise, flexibility, and other values that we offer, we strive to fully understand the clients’ work culture, business ethics and values using our experience, professionalism and expertise. This enables us to truly serve and function as a business partner with our clients. For us, therefore, outsourcing is an enduring and long-lasting relationship building based on trust, honesty, transparency, equity, fairness, excellent customer service, and relationship building.
We Build Broad Business Outcomes: Though cost saving is a major objective of outsourcing, we endeavour to take a much broader view of the benefits and challenges inherent in the scheme.
We See more than a Contract: In selecting us, we believe that our clients are buying into a journey and roadmap with clear vision and determination of reaching the destination in partnership and “cultural-fit” with Afa Outsourcing.
Value Sharing: We believe strongly that this business partnership is all about leveraging on our individual strengths and sharing both risks and rewards.
Good and Active Governance Best Practices: Effective outsourcing arrangement requires active involvement of all stakeholders in order to maintain good governance and management of the process and handling of all the sensitive issues that may arise for a better outcome.
Special Skill-set is required for Managing Outsourcing Relationship: We possess the required HR skill-set and coordination capacity necessary for managing the outsourcing relationship.
Top Management Involvement: We recognize that outsourcing is a full-time business requiring focused attention at the management level. As a result of this recognition, a member of Afa Outsourcing management team takes full charge of supervising the outsourcing arrangement before, during and after negotiation. It is our strong belief that the success of outsourcing relationship between us and a client depends on the care and nurturing of the process over-time, particularly at the implementation phase.
Focus on Objective: On a constant basis, we relentlessly focus on the objectives of cost reduction, improved processes, and professionalism while the client focuses on core business functions and competences. We adopt a phased approach in providing outsourcing services to our clients.
Our time time-tested methodology is based on the following schedule of activities:
a. Phase 1: Application, Discussion/Interview, Negotiation and Signing of Agreement
b. Phase 2: Candidate Sourcing and Evaluation
c. Phase 3: Absorption
d. Phase 4: On-site Deployment and Management
We undertake customized in-plant general management, human resources, marketing and sales training of managerial and non-managerial staff in order to improve their knowledge, skills and attitudes.
