The Benefits of Human Resources Outsourcing
Between employee grievances and today's tangled web of employment laws and regulations, human resources–related tasks can overwhelm even the most driven business owner. That's why it's no surprise that more and more organizations are discovering the benefits of human resources (HR) outsourcing.
According to a recent study conducted by SHRM (Society for Human Resources Management), HR outsourcing is a practice used by nearly 6 out of 10 organizations. In the last five years alone, the U.S. market for this type of outsourcing has nearly doubled.
Why the shift to HR outsourcing?
When you off-load the responsibility of human resources activities — particularly transactional ones — you free your managers to focus on core business functions such as organizational strategy development and execution. At the same time, critical HR tasks are placed in the hands of specialists who have the expertise needed to protect a company's best interests. Overall benefits of HR outsourcing include:
- Minimized risk due to better compliance.
- Reduced administrative costs.
- Increased workplace efficiency and productivity.
- Improved employee performance, morale, and retention.
