Growing Pains? HR Outsourcing to the Rescue

John Ferguson, Director of Business Development simplicityHR by ALTRES

Most business owners aren’t human resources experts. Of course you want to take care of your people, but the burden of handling payroll, benefits, legal compliance, workers’ compensation, training, etc., can be overwhelming. Here are four signs it’s time to outsource your HR.

1. You’re drowning in paperwork

Business is booming, but instead of strategizing ways to keep the momentum going, you’re processing payroll or comparing insurance plans. By outsourcing the back-office functions of HR, you can get back to what you do best—building your company’s bottom line.

2. You’re having trouble keeping up with employment laws

Even with an HR professional on staff, it’s difficult to stay on top of new state and federal laws, changing reporting requirements, and revisions to important employment forms. Government fines for noncompliance are hefty and a single wrongful termination lawsuit has the potential to sink a small business.

3. You need to contain costs

Outsourcing non-revenue generating HR functions eliminates the need to bring on additional in-house employees. Additional cost savings can be realized through technology. A comprehensive human resources information system simplifies business processes for employers and employees alike.

4. You’re struggling to attract talent

A robust benefits package helps you recruit and retain the best employees. In an outsourcing model known as a professional employer organization (PEO) relationship, you can offer a wide range of corporate benefits and support services, no matter your company size.
