Small business needs are different from those of a large corporation. Many are turning to outsourced HR for small business because even small teams need HR support.
Attraction and retention of top talent, strong team morale, high productivity, these are all factors that can give your business the edge. Even everyday concerns like payroll, benefits, and legal compliance need to be taken care of. This part of the job can often frustrate small business owners, who would rather turn their attention to more revenue-generating activities. Outsourced HR is a smart solution, fiscally responsible yet highly beneficial for your employees.
Small business owners would do well to consider outsourcing part, or all of their HR needs when it comes to everyday affairs, like payroll, benefits, compensation, pensions, and legal compliance.
We see many businesses with fewer than 50 employees that don’t have an HR team. Instead, there’s often a manager or finance director with some relevant experience who handles all the HR concerns. Often those handling HR have experience or training that is out of date or find themselves pulled in too many directions. When administrative processes begin slowing down, it’s often a sign that it’s time to call on outside resources.
An outsourced HR solution can provide support that compliments your expertise adding skills or experience absent from your in-house team or offering an outside “face” that provides the services you need as you need them.
Employee and Legal Issues
Good employee relations are not just a nice-to-have bonus, but an important foundation that makes your business the success that it is. Similarly, legal HR issues can have a huge impact on a business, so it pays to handle them professionally the first time.
Outsourced HR can address both of these common small business needs. Employee relations issues do come up, even for small firms. Whether it’s handling employee concerns, redundancies or possible terminations, many small business owners appreciate having a lifeline to a HR professional that can guide them through the necessary procedures for the best outcomes. Other HR issues can be more pressing, requiring legal advice on discrimination claims or other employment issues, or having to do with policy and contract regulations.
An outsourced HR solution can provide support and answers as such questions arise, often offering support equal to that of a full in-house HR department at a fraction of the cost.
One of the most enjoyable functions of HR professionals is helping a business grow and reach its potential. For a small business owner, it can be difficult to step back and take stock of long-term people needs, when there is a dozen pressing questions that need immediate attention.
An outsourced HR solution can be a smart investment, ensuring that your team acquires, develops, and retains the skills, knowledge, and expertise necessary to take your business to the next level.
As businesses grow in scale, so do their HR needs. An outsourced HR resource can scale with your business, provide as-needed recruiting, onboarding, benefits program changes, audits, performance management processes, employee engagement, training, and payroll processing; including a full suite technology offerings to you give you a peace of mind that your legal compliance is keeping pace with your business growth.
