This article reports on a recently published survey which has found that the drive to cut employment costs and tackle skills shortages in Great Britain has led to almost a third of organisations feeling under pressure to offshore business activity. As a result of this pressure the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development estimates that 30,000 jobs have been offshored each year since the turn of the century.
