Outsourcing’s American counterpart--domestic sourcing--is in the news. After years of hiring offshore workers to augment staff and cut labor costs, businesses are recognizing onshore talent is worth the investment.There are a variety of reasons domestic sourcing is gaining popularity, including the recent election highlighting the need for more US jobs. But the two main reasons are cost and quality. According to a recent New York Times article highlighting the boom in domestic sourcing, 10 years ago the average offshore software developer cost five to seven times less than their American counterpart. Today the American earns only twice as much, as rates in South Asia have risen.
