Human Resource outsourcing includes engaging the services of a professional consulting company to handle all your end-to-end Human Resource requirements. It can be done over a short or extended period of time. Different HR companies offer different levels of expertise. Some companies mainly focus on outsourced Human Resource admin tasks such as payroll and documentation while others have specialized in a more holistic approach and will offer a wider range of services such as daily Human Resource support, compliance, proper record keeping, performance management, development and implementation of Human Resource policies.
Many business owners don’t entirely understand what HR outsourcing actually involves. For businesses struggling with issues that are more complex than your average day-to-day Human Resource tasks, a more comprehensive solution is required. A true strategic approach to outsourcing involves partnering with a HR firm to identify your business needs, audit your current HR current practices, and then develop a HR implementation plan based on the gaps identified. Outsourcing arrangements usually involve this Human Resource professional working on a part-time basis, although full-time hours may be negotiated either on-site or remotely from their office.
Why consider Human Resource Outsourcing?
- Recurring compliance issues
- Difficulties with attraction and retention e.g. unable to find the right people to fill certain job roles
- Employee behaviour problems
- Declining employee performance
The complexity of your needs and the size, industry and geography of your business will input into determining whether on-site or remote outsourcing is most suitable for your business. Remote outsourcing is generally an effective solution for smaller businesses who have less frequent HR requirements. The HR professional will be available for phone/emails to provide advice and discuss work to be completed. On-site outsourcing is often needed for larger businesses with ongoing and complex needs. This type of arrangement allows for a dedicated and objective HR professional to become ‘a part of your team.’
In conclusion, HR outsourcing helps CEOs and business owners achieve a strategic approach to their HR needs. HR Outsourcing gives you flexible access to professionals who want to partner with your business to deliver holistic solutions.
