HR Outsourcing

What is HR Outsourcing?

A Human Resources (HR) department is a critical component of employee well-being in any business, no matter how small. Human resources responsibilities include payroll, benefits, hiring, firing, and keeping up to date with tax and employment laws.

Any mix-up concerning these issues can cause major legal problems for your business, as well as significant employee dissatisfaction, but small businesses often don’t have the staff or the budget to handle the nitty-gritty details of Human Resources properly.

Because of this, more and more small businesses are beginning to outsource their Human Resources needs.

What are the benefits for you?

Healthy human resources practices have the potential to increase your company’s productivity and profitability, but HR management has become a considerable task, demanding significant resources. Legal and regulatory issues have become an overwhelming task, and time spent on administrative duties is time spent away from growing your business.

Outsourcing your ‘people needs’ can help you gain a competitive advantage as well as having access to professionals who can cut through the minefield of HR practices and deliver a positive impact on your business. Outsourcing gives employees better benefits and the owner the freedom to focus on his critical business issues.

Despite recognising the benefits of outsourcing HR, half of small to medium sized business are not making the most of the opportunity. The excuses they give for stalling on making the decision are:

They are not sure if it will cost less to outsource rather than doing it with an in-house function.

Companies are concerned about employee resistance and HR employees themselves fear they will lose their jobs. The other main reason is anxiety about managing an outsourcing provider because they have never done it before.
