Advantages of operating through an outsource
subcontractor in Bulgaria
Bulgaria has turned into one of the most attractive outsourcing destinations, especially for types of services as data processing, software programming and call centers activities. Interest among foreign companies is growing in Bulgaria with European companies negotiating about relocation of their activities to the country. One such company is Hewlett Packard. They have established a global client service center in Sofia with 1000 employees.
Some of the main advantages for outsourcing
or relocating already outsourced activities to Bulgaria are its
proximity to Western Europe, its recent admission to the European
Union, its lower standard of living in comparison not only to Western
Europe but also to the other Central and South European countries. This
relates to the relatively low-salary standard set against an
impressively qualified labour force, especially in the IT and foreign
languages sectors. Potential workforce is constantly available to
employ and train in a short time due to the constant increase of
university students and young urban professionals looking for jobs in
the capital city of Sofia and the other big Bulgarian cities.
