Every company needs HR. It doesn’t matter what size your business is or how much you turnover. If you have a team of more than one, you will have HR activities.
HR is a complex function that covers various problems. With such a variety of tasks, it can be difficult for one person to have the knowledge and expertise to manage it all, with limited resources.
Often, important HR decisions are left to be made by a management team with no experience in this particular area. This can be problematic as you are opening yourself up to the possibility of being non-compliant but also taking the risk of not working at your most efficient.
However, an in-house HR department that covers all areas can be costly and often unnecessary. To hire enough roles to cover any HR issue that may arise, whilst also knowing the best processes to implement, will come attached to a hefty pay roll.
That is where outsourcing can be beneficial for businesses.
Outsourcing refers to having a contracted company take care of some or all your HR functions for you, whether on an ad-hoc basis or as a monthly retainer. An outsourced team can support your current HR management by providing expertise in areas where your team’s experience is missing. If your HR manager specialises in employment law, outsourcing can give you access to people management experts and vice versa.
So, what are the benefits of having an outsourced team support your HR department?
5 Benefits to Outsourcing:
- Reduced costs
Put simply, the cost of a monthly outsourced HR service is minimal compared to multiple annual salaries of well experienced and qualified HR experts.
- Wider knowledge
Outsourcing your HR to KHES gives you access to a team of employment law experts with a wealth of knowledge and experience in people management, that no one in-house role could have on their own.
- Improved compliance
Rules and regulations are constantly changing. You don’t want to get caught out by not following the correct policies and procedures. Outsourcing takes this worry away, putting your worries into the hands of experts.
- Increased efficiency and performance
An outsourced team will be able to suggest ways to improve your team’s performance. But it will also give you the breathing space to work on the day-to-day running of your business with the confidence your HR admin will be taken care of.
- Improved recruitment and onboarding
Recruiting takes time. A lot of time. Using outsourced support allows you to share the workload and implement the most efficient processes for your business. Having a well thought out introductory plan also makes it easier for new staff to be welcomed into the team.
