English term or phrase: labour arbitrage
Hallo,
es geht um Outsourcing und global integrierte Unternehmen. Im KudoZ stehen zwar ein paar Übersetzungen, aber welche passt hier wirklich?
Nach Möglichkeit möchte ich "...-Arbitrage..." vermeiden. Scheint mir nicht sehr geläufig zu sein.
Danke euch!

At the same time, they are recognising that outsourcing has the potential to deliver extraordinary business value above and beyond simple cost savings and operational efficiencies. They are coming to the realisation that outsourcing is less about *labour arbitrage* and more about accessing the myriad of global talent available to businesses today.

Explanation:
"Arbitrage" ist hier etwas schwer "festzunageln" - eine der oben genannten Varianten könnte aber passen, da "labour" hier aller Wahrscheinlichkeit für den Personalaufwand/die Personalkosten steht.
