They are planning to invest in the collaborative partnership to leverage their support and service in delivering improved customer services. HSCS further stressed on the fact that their entire process will be divided into two categories, where basic operational work will be outsourced to a partner and work related to critical processes will be managed by the employees of HCSC. Employees, however, dread that the IT work will be sent to an offshore location.
