Why you should Outsource HR


We understand that as a SME business you are faced daily with controlling costs whilst at the same time building your business, managing employees and dealing with customers – and that’s before you start the day job! We know that your people are your prime asset and make your business the success that it is. Getting the people side of your business right is essential for ensuring you operate as effectively as possible but having an in-house HR specialist can be an expensive resource.


Here are 3 very simple and clear reasons why you should outsource your HR:


1.Managing your Costs:

Usually, a business will need one HR person per 100 employees to manage their basic HR administration. For a small business, maintaining a permanent, in-house HR specialist is expensive and likely not a great use of your resource and unless you have more than one, you are left without support during holidays and sickness. However, having no HR support leaves you open to getting things wrong and potentially expensive claims against the Company and its Directors.


Outsourced HR means you have access to a whole team of HR specialists as often or as little as you need and you can easily track how much this is costing. Our expert consultants can assist you with a whole range of services including, but not limited to:


  • Administration

  • Recruitment and onboarding

  • Project management

  • Employee relations

  • Engagement surveys

  • Managing leavers

  • Developing strategic HR plans

2. Protecting your Business:

Do your employees ask you questions about their contracts or have employment issues that you’re not sure how to handle within the limits of employment law? Do you sometimes want to make changes or have difficult conversations, but you’re not sure what you’re allowed to say or do? You’re not alone, it’s a complicated area and you’re not an employment expert.


An experienced HR consultant can offer you swift and expert advice, tailored to your needs, as and when you need it most giving you complete peace of mind.

3. A happier and more engaged workforce:
