Baseline.  A Star Base Newsletter


Happy holidays from STAR BASE Consulting! As we close out another year, it's a perfect time to look back on the trends of this year, especially in regards to offshoring. While we look forward to 2012, we anticipate many of the same challenges will remain—many of which persist due to a less than robust economic recovery.

In this issue of BASEline, I write about how the struggling economy is affecting attitudes toward offshoring—and an apparent decline in its numbers. Drawing from what we learned from our Pulse Survey IT Outsourcing and Backsourcing: Are IT Jobs Returning to the U.S.?, I outline key findings as well as proposed strategies to balance the need to keep operational costs low with a talent supply that is up for the job. We invite you to read The Inside Scoop on Offshoring in a Struggling Economy and see where you stand on this topic.

Also in this issue:

BUSINESS INSIGHTS: spotlights the business resolutions we've set for ourselves in 2012.
SURVEY SPOTLIGHTS: highlights selections from our most recent Pulse Survey, which examined the effect the economy is having on offshoring. In this issue, we look at why so many respondents prioritize bringing offshored IT jobs back to the U.S.

Congratulations to Ron Hubbard from Dunhumby! He won a Powermat Wireless Charging Station for participating in this year's survey. Enjoy!

We hope you find this issue informative and enlightening. As always, if you have any feedback or article ideas, we welcome your suggestions. Please Enjoy!

Best Regards,

Jeff Welsh
