Top 10 Benefits of Outsourcing Your HR

1. Outsourcing reduces costs (typically 30-60%):

  • Hiring an in-house team involves a multitude of recurring expenses such as salary, taxes, benefits, training, recruiting, rent/space, payroll taxes, workers’ compensation and computer hardware/software.  When you outsource, you free yourself from the majority of these expenses!
  • For the cost of hiring one employee, you’ll get a dedicated team of professionals that would be cost-prohibitive in many cases.  By doing so, you may dramatically increase the quality of the personnel that you will be able to afford as a result.

2. Outsourcing increases efficiency (companies that do everything themselves have much higher operational, marketing and distribution expenses);

  • Outsourcing providers have been serving clients for years and as a result, they have it down to a science.  Your people’s efficiency will increase.
  • Utilize the latest technology and obtain the benefits without having to invest the dollars to purchase new technology.

3. Outsourcing providers assess and manage risk for you;

4. Outsourcing helps small organizations act “big”, giving them economies of scale, efficiency and the expertise that large organizations enjoy;

5. Outsourcing focuses the workforce on activities that generate profits:

  • Reduce your involvement, people drama and increase your time to do other things!
  • Focus on what you do best – because someone else is thinking about people and compliance issues, you’ll be freed up to do what you do best!
  • Quality people controls give you peace of mind.

6. Single HR point of contact (Your On-Call, HR Director);

7. Fortune 500-level expertise from recruiting to people management to compliance;
