Outsourcing – Human Resources & Reporting

Human Resources & Reporting Services

Administrative responsibilities can be a burden for any company, but especially for small to mid-size businesses with limited time and resources.

The real issue is that the human resources function is multi-faceted – encompassing a wide range of responsibilities. It can be hard to find all those skills in one person – managing benefits administration, coordinating interviews, sending offer letters, and much more. In fact, a typical Human Resources department may be responsible for any of the following roles within your business:

  • Recruiter
  • Benefits administrator
  • Employee training
  • Compliance advisor
  • Safety coordinator

That’s a lot to expect from a single employee. Yet establishing an entire HR department can be cost prohibitive.

Human Resources

The truth is that your company’s HR practices have a direct impact on your bottom line. Is your organization doing all that you can to effectively motivate and manage your employees?

Take a few moments to consider the following questions:

What is your company’s reputation in the marketplace? Is it considered a desirable place to work?

Does your company culture seek out employee feedback?

Does your company have what it takes to attract top-performing employees to key positions?

Do you have a customized recruiting strategy for a full range of key positions?

Are your employee’s job descriptions clearly defined? Do you have a customized orientation program?

Do you share your company’s business plan, financial status and goals with employees?

Do you have a realistic grasp of employee satisfaction?

Are your senior executives able to effectively demonstrate your company’s value?

How does your employee turnover compare to the standard in your industry?

Answering the questions above will give you better insight and considerations as to whether your organization could benefit from outsourcing for HR services.
