HR outsourcing services

Every business that has employees needs to make HR a consideration on an ongoing basis, as it is an essential part of every company and organisation and deals with not only things like recruitment, but also staff development, performance management and helps to define and reinforce company ethos and culture.

Many companies face a choice over whether they want to handle all HR considerations in-house, or to look at outsourcing HR services, some or all, to a specialist who provide expert support.

Whether you’re considering outsourced HR for an SME, a startup or a large business, there are options available for any kind of organisation in any sector that will handle the HR hassle so that you don’t have to. With fixed annual fee HR office services, you can ensure that your business complies with all of the necessary legal and HR requirements for employers, leaving you with more capacity to concentrate on the successful running of your business instead.

Can you outsource HR?

Whilst most aspects of HR can certainly be outsourced, there will be some elements that most businesses wish to keep in-house, such as recruitment. There can be an excellent synergy between businesses and HR outsourcing companies which offers the perfect level of support for the in-house activity and this can be tailored to each individual company.

The objectives of HR outsourcing are to ensure that businesses are able to effective manage employees and their legal responsibilities to them, whilst also protecting the company from potential future employment law issues. Outsourcing these services means that the business itself can instead spend their time and resources on their key purposes and success.

What are the benefits of outsourcing HR services?

HR outsourcing in the UK is a popular choice for many businesses, with some of the common benefits reported as including:

  • Reduced costs
  • Access to premium HR tools and systems without the up-front costs
  • Increased efficiency
  • Improved staff performance
  • More flexibility when responding to HR issues
  • Access to employment law experts when needed
  • Input from HR experts to assist with strategic planning

How does HR outsourcing reduce costs?

One of the major challenges of HR outsourcing for businesses to overcome is to understand how it saves the company money, both now and in the future. For a business handling their own HR fully in-house, they will usually need to employ specialist experienced HR staff, invest in software or IT systems and HR training. When outsourcing HR, a business can have access to expert HR support whenever needed, along with the best-in-class tools and systems for managing staff for a fraction of the comparative cost of maintaining an in-house team.
