RPO service centers have flourished in countries like India and Philippines for past decade. In the last few years since the onset of the global financial crisis and recent “Arab Spring”, new emerging markets from different countries have entered the outsourcing field. South Africa in particular has even joined the BRIC countries as a viable location.
Western based service providers are already entering Africa through their investments in other countries like Morocco, Kenya, and Nigeria. This however is only the tip of the iceberg. Next year new countries like Ghana, Angola, Namibia, Tanzania, and Mozambique among others will see increases in the amount of foreign investment and growth of recruiting services.
Chinese and Indian investors are already aggressively penetrating the African market in various industries. Recruitment Process Outsourcing is poised to take off given the growth potential throughout the entire region. Labor costs in various countries throughout Africa offer more competitive rates than India and Philippines for traditional service center support of companies from The United States and European Union countries including United Kingdom.
Call centers have already sprung up in even the most surprising locations. Infrastructure and communication services unlike that of some developed countries is even more advanced in various locations. Manpower is abundant and eager to develop. Education at some universities is even accredited by the U.S. Department of Education just like in any American college.
As Africa enters the global arena of locations from which back-office RPO service delivery can be supported, the industry will see the competition heat up for best place to operate from. Africa – “the new kid on the block” is here!
