For businesses, large and small, human resources outsourcing (HRO) has multiple advantages. Enlisting the services of an HRO like LBMC Employment Partners creates a relationship that allows us to serve as a coordinator and manager of selected HR roles and responsibilities, taking the stress off you and your designated HR employee(s). With a convenient, single point of contact, an HRO can provide individual or blended services to ideally meet your HR needs.
While an HRO often combines the duties of human resources services, payroll services, and brokering services, the advantages are generally found in a unique and tailored treatment for your business, since no two companies have the same, specific needs.
Six Advantages of HRO
If you’ve been considering an HRO, here are just a few of the many advantages of human resources outsourcing:
1. Dedicated Human Resources Professional
Whether you already have a designated HR employee or not, you’ll have access to a certified and dedicated HR professional who can offer insight when needed and find solutions as problems or issues occur.
2. Comprehensive Review of HR Policies and Practices
With an HRO, you’ll receive a comprehensive review of your current HR policies and practices, as well as guidance on what policies and practices need to be revised, updated, and in compliance with federal, state, and local laws.
3. Employee Handbook Development and Updates
An employee handbook is a must and will save you time and energy when it comes to answering policy and procedure questions from your employees. An HRO will help you develop and publish your employee handbook, tailored to your business identity and needs. In addition, your handbooks will be updated regularly as laws, policies, or company needs change.
4. Employee Relations and New Hire Orientation
Employee relations is an important part of maintaining best practices for your business, yet it can be very time-consuming for business owners and leaders. An HRO will be available for your employee relations needs, as well as being able to offer efficient and professional new hire orientation.
5. Employee Training and Professional Development
Employee training should be done on a regular basis, both for new employees and for current employees who desire to grow personally and professionally. From supervisory training to the avoidance of harassment/discrimination to medical or personal leave to performance management, an HRO will have you covered.
6. Unemployment and Leave Administration
Unemployment claims administration, as well as leave administration, can be time-consuming and stressful if you’re not familiar with the proper forms or legal protocol. An HRO will be up to speed on the proper procedures for all types of claims or leave administration, saving you both time and energy to focus back into running your business well.
