Forms of Non-Standard Employment in the Context of the Transformation of Business Processes in Modern Conditions

Maryna Pravdiuk


Modern business is dynamic and requires flexibility and quick response to societal changes. The conditions for forming market relations in Ukraine, characterised by the influence of a dynamic external environment and the growth of competition, require the search for innovative means of survival of enterprises and maintaining their efficiency. The purpose of the article is to study and summarise the theoretical aspects of the outstaffing process to identify the opportunities and threats associated with the participation in it of all subjects of this process, organisational and legal aspects of outstaffing, taking into account which will ensure the possible benefits of its implementation. Based on the analysis of literary sources and the study of practical experience in providing outstaffing services in Ukraine, the content of this process is determined. It is determined that outsourcing is one of the methods of cost optimisation at the present stage of enterprise development. The main scientific approaches to the definition of this concept, the classification of types are considered, and the main advantages and disadvantages of its use with an increase in the efficiency of the enterprise. The theoretical foundations of outsourcing in the enterprise are analysed to reduce production costs, improve quality and increase product competitiveness. Arguments have been formulated about recognising this toolkit as an effective means of minimising the costs of the enterprise, and some additional advantages of its use in a crisis economy are given. The main problems of regulating legislative and regulatory requirements for providing outstaffing services in Ukraine in current economic conditions are investigated. Explored outsourcing helps new and established businesses attract more professional employees by transferring their business processes to service providers with safer and more advanced technologies. The use of atypical forms of employment undoubtedly has its advantages, but the implementation process is hampered since it is not fully regulated by law. In general, it is necessary to study the specifics of outsourcing and outstaffing since these are promising ways to solve enterprise personnel problems.
