What is HR Outsourcing
As the field of human resources has so many separate components, many businesses find that it makes sense to sub-contract some or all of their HR processes to a specialist provider. Whether those process be payroll, recruitment or legal advice to managers, using an external provider can have many advantages.
Advantages of Human Resource Outsourcing
Skills and Knowledge
By hiring specialists in a particular field, companies are able to benefit from the combined knowledge and skills of an experienced range of professionals, to whom they may not otherwise had access.
Quality/Increased Legislative Compliance
As specialist HR outsourcing companies focus solely on a single process (such as payroll or pensions for example) they will have greater awareness of the surrounding legislation, ensuring legal compliance.
By outsourcing human resources, companies are able to focus on their core business processes. This increased focus allows companies to do more of what they do best and to grow and thrive.
The cost of a company managing HR for itself can be staggering, especially considering the hidden costs that aren’t always accounted for. The expenditure of management time alone dealing with, for example, a troublesome employee, is wholly disproportionate in most cases., The costs of poor people management can be substantial and should a company fail to comply with a legal requirements they could be faced with a meritorious claim at an employment tribunal, an award for compensation and large bill for legal costs.
