Many small business owners struggle with staffing experienced, yet affordable, employees to handle all of the day-to-day needs their business has, particularly within human resources. When small businesses grow, HR helps with the growing pains and keeps operations running smoothly. But often, small businesses don’t have the available funds to hire on full-time employees to handle these tasks. That’s when solutions such as outsourcing HR functions really come in handy.
HR outsourcing includes a variety of different services. Here are just a few:
1 – Hiring
Hiring is an extremely taxing process for any business. When an employee quits or is terminated, this affects everyone. Employee turnover rates can lower productivity, increase costs, and overwork the rest of the staff. To find a new employee, a job ad must be posted, schedules need to be adjusted, resumes need to be reviewed and interviews need to be conducted. This entire process can cost thousands of dollars just to hire and train that new employee.
Outsourcing the hiring process can help you find the right candidate for you without having to spend a lot of your own valuable time seeking out qualified candidates. In addition, HR managers ensure that the hiring process and interview questions are up to the state and federal employment standards.
2 – Developing Company Culture
HR departments are vital to businesses as they help to create a company culture. That culture works to establish values and organizational goals. HR also helps to create a welcoming and conducive work environment for employees.
3 – Compliance and Conflict Mediation
Regardless of how smoothly your business is operating, it never hurts to have an HR manager available in case trouble arises. HR helps to mediate conflicts, uncover any issues, and take preventative action to minimize legal risks involved. This, in turn, leads to greater employee satisfaction and saves your business money on potential legal fees.
4 – Job Analysis
In order to avoid any confusion, every job position needs to come with a detailed, up-to-date job description. This is where HR managers can assist. HR can help with this by conducting a job analysis to decide on exact duties, restrictions, and other expectations. Even more so, when your company has 100 or more employees, keeping job descriptions current can be tricky and that can lead to legal or operational issues down the line. Inexperienced HR managers often struggle with this task which makes outsourcing HR a great option when you need experience now.
