6 reasons why you want to Outsource to Romania (part II)

Author: Alexandra Stanculescu

As I’ve promised in the article’s first issue, we’re going to look over a few of the facts and statistics around the Romanian IT&C market, which reflect onto this article’s topic, contributing to our list of reasons why we’re a preferred nearshoring/offshoring destination.

4. Huge Tech-Pool

As you can see in our infographic above, we have over 95000 IT&C Specialists, at a national level. Over 7000 join the workforce every year, after graduating one of our Technical Universities – and technical education here gives our field enthusiasts the choices they need, with 5 top polytechnic universities, 59 domain-specific universities, and 174 private colleges. After just a quick look at the numbers, it’s quite obvious there’s a phenomenal talent-pool to choose from. And, in regards to point #1 in my previous article, 90% of our IT-Software professionals speak English.

5. Fastest internet connections in Europe

Remember when I was telling you about how our modern history unwillingly promoted creativity and imagination? Well, our preoccupation with securing state-of-the-art technology is likely a consequence of the same factors. This is also true of our internet connection.
There is a subtle difference between ‘the best internet connection’ and ‘fair internet connection’. Most likely, where personal use, and even day-to-day corporate use are concerned, this fact hasn’t any major impact. But where nearshoring/offshoring is concerned, it slowly and surely builds-up into a significant, even measurable difference – after all, this business-relationship is going to take place roughly 95% online. The best internet connection means fast exchange of information, uninterrupted and frustration-liberated online meetings, and reliable access to your Romanian employees. It enables a sense of commitment and involvement, while also validating our friendly-competitive nature. Which brings us to point #6 on our list:

6. Constructively-competitive nature

Being competitive is beneficial with tech-projects, especially if one knows how to channel their competitive drive constructively. Friendly, playful competition between coworkers drives efficiency, passion and agility into a project, and having talent to show and wanting to show it insures motivation. And we do have a lot to show the world. We know we’re capable of competing with the best of them, and we want to prove it, time and time again. We’ve competed with past stereotypes, and we’ve won. We’ve competed with difficult circumstances throughout our history, and have won. We compete with ourselves and emerge as better professionals at the end of each day. I guess we just take pride in our assets, and believe in a little healthy competing. It’s a habit we start nurturing early in our careers: our students get more Informatics and Math Olympiad medals than any other European nation, and we rank 3rd worldwide.

Is there anything you can add to our list? I’d be pleased to hear some of your questions and thoughts, if there’s anything in particular you’d like to know about our people, what makes us special, and how we do business. Are you a Romanian working with foreigners, or a foreigner working with Romanians? Would be interested to know your perspectives, through a comment or email – and do follow us on Facebook to get a better feel of our culture.

    Outstanding Blog!
