It even has a wikipedia page: https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Body-Leasing
Yea, it's again one of those words, German speaking people created without understanding the meaning behind it. Just like the word "Home office". Misused.

Please read my link. It does exist!!
That is correct, the practice of Outsourcing has been used since the 70's but the term Body Shopping became more popular since the 90's. Some of the Largest IT companies still use practice this today e.g. Hewlett Packard, Oracle and IBM.

There are multiple different outsourcing models which are all slightly different. In essence Body Shopping means Time and Materials where the material is an employee (or an external consultant). Body Shopping is the most cost effective way to outsource. Though officially no one ever calls a Body Shop a Body Shop (specially the HR).

The author isn't a mother-tongue english speaker though; Slovakian or Czech possibly?
We tend to not speak German as a mother tongue

See the OP's profile.
