Every area of your business is important. But, certain responsibilities are at the top of your priority list because they’re the most critical to strategic planning and growth. So, when it comes to planning your time, those are the areas that should consume most of it.
But you can’t ignore the rest – including that lengthy list of HR tasks and duties. To effectively manage them all and avoid dropping this critical ball, outsourcing can be the solution that not only frees up hours in your day, but also optimizes overall productivity and profitability.
Here are six processes to consider outsourcing:
Payroll management is a multi-faceted challenge, between accurate time recording, benefit deductions, garnishments, new hires and terminations, paid time off, federal and state regulations … and the list goes on. Regardless of the number of people you employ, attending to all of it demands a great deal of time and attention. Outsourcing payroll helps ensure accuracy and timeliness, avoid costly errors, and free up valuable staff time.
The planning, negotiation and execution involved in maintaining competitive employee benefits can be a full-time job in itself. And it’s essential to attracting and retaining top talent.
- One way to conquer this challenge is to outsource to a professional employer organization (PEO). By entering into a co-employment agreement, your PEO becomes the employer of choice for your team members – and can pool them with other client employees to give you access to Fortune 500-level benefits, despite the smaller size of your company, without breaking the bank.
- Your outsource partner can also handle the myriad tasks associated with benefits administration, such as scheduling and conducting open enrollment and handling ongoing employee communications, to name just a few.
Compliance and Risk Management
Outsourcing minimizes the risk of violating any HR compliance laws or regulations. This can be especially beneficial to smaller businesses, who may not have enough in-house bandwidth to stay updated in this area. By outsourcing, you achieve peace of mind that all your company policies, practices, and procedures are in line and up to date.
Outsourcing your hiring activities has multiple advantages including increasing the scalability and flexibility of your recruiting, making your processes more efficient, and boosting your employer brand. Plus, the expertise of your outsource provider, as well as their access to a wider, deeper talent pool, means they’re well-positioned to provide comprehensive services and deliver desired results.
Training and Development
Career growth for your employees should always be on your radar screen. By outsourcing performance management, leadership development, ongoing training initiatives, and related counseling, your plans will be more easily fleshed out, implemented and managed.
By outsourcing various HR support functions, you can significantly cut overhead costs, eliminating the need for additional equipment, hardware and software, infrastructure, and all the expenses associated with office space and maintenance. Plus, the right outsource partner will provide subject matter experts who are highly specialized and can zero in on whichever topics and touchpoints you need.
