    Wink Vocabulary doubt

    When a company contracts a third part to do a job, we say the company outsources a staff. However, which verb is used to describe the other way round, I mean, if a company dismisses the outsourced staff and gets control over that work again?
    Thank you very much,

    Re: Vocabulary doubt

    Hello JS, welcome to UE!

    Perhaps: "bring the work inhouse again".

    (Though I have a feeling there's a one-word verb for this. Unfortunately I can't remember it. Maybe someone else will know.)
