The evening was highlighted by an engaging discussion led by Monty Hamilton, CEO of Rural Sourcing, who discussed an emerging “hot spot” for outsourcing – the United States. That’s right; the United States is stepping up to become the new kid on the outsourcing block. Just as foreign car manufacturers looked to low-cost labor in the South to gain an advantage, outsourcing within the US is a cost competitive alternative to the offshore option. Mr. Hamilton shared insights on global macro-economic trends that are driving this new movement, as well as documented cases of how US businesses are reducing costs and staying onshore.
