Do you currently have a dedicated human resources department? If you don’t, how do you handle day to day challenges that come up in your business? Compliance for paperwork and employment law is no small feat and without ensuring the proper procedures it is easy to let something fall through the cracks. Here are just a few of the benefits your company can experience if you chose to outsource your HR needs.
- The question of money.
Hiring staff to handle each of the varied functions of human resources can quickly add up. The average salary for a Human Resources director can be around $130,000 and for a generalist you may be talking $80,000. You may also need an HR assistant or other supporting staff internally to focus on the functions of the department. These numbers don’t even include added technology, infrastructure, or office space. Outsourcing to a company who specializes in human resources can be much more cost effective than an in-house department.
- Focus on your business.
If you’re company doesn’t specialize in human resources it can be an enormous distraction when an HR situation arises. Rather than shifting your focus away from what you do best, allow a dedicated company to handle these aspects for you. This way you can continue to concentrate on your business as usual and rest assured that your company is compliant.
- Avoid a gap in workflow.
In spite of anyone’s best effort, turnover happens in business. Your current benefits administrator may move to another city or your payroll specialist might be out for an extended medical leave. Your business doesn’t have the luxury of allowing their daily duties to go unfinished if this happens. An outsourced HR group will have you covered in the event of any emergency so your team doesn’t go unpaid and your business continues to run smoothly.
- Add contingent workforce.
If you expand part of your services or need to replace an essential team member you may not have time to stop everything and focus on hiring. Your outsourced HR team can. Allow them to do what they do best so you can continue to focus on what you do best. The recruiters can work with you to determine the best fit for the company and help pre-screen candidates so you only meet with the most qualified. They will also monitor and manage the new staff until you determine that you are ready to make a permanent job offer.
