Subcontracting is the practice of outsourcing specific tasks or projects to other companies or individuals who specialize in those tasks. It's a common practice in many industries, and can be beneficial for both the company outsourcing the work and the subcontractor completing it. Some examples of subcontracting include:

  • Construction: Subcontractors are often used for tasks such as electrical work, plumbing, and drywall installation.
  • IT: Subcontractors are often hired to develop custom software, manage network security, or provide tech support.
  • Manufacturing: Companies may outsource specialized processes like metal fabrication or injection molding to subcontractors.
  • Transportation: Companies may hire subcontractors to handle shipping, warehousing, and logistics.

Subcontracting can be cost-effective, as it allows companies to focus on their core business while outsourcing specialized tasks to experts.
