Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff: How to Maximize the Impact of HR Through Outsourcing
If you are an HR Manager, HR Director or HR Vice President then HR outsourcing might seem redundant considering you work in HR. However, we recommend you take a closer look at your daily, weekly and monthly activities and where you have the greatest opportunity to add the most value to your company while reducing your overall day-to-day burden of HR tasks. Ask yourself these questions:
- Do administrative tasks add the most value to your company?
- Can you improve you company’s bottom line by taking a deep understanding of what your company does and apply that understanding in an HR context?
Think of it this way, how much more value could you add to your company if items like payroll processing, insurance claims/questions, audits and simple paperwork were removed from your daily or weekly set of tasks in favor of HR outsourcing? The time savings could be put toward more strategic items such as recruiting better candidates who can come on-board and are able to contribute 25% quicker than the current benchmark or completing that succession plan that continues to go on hold or simply spending time making your annual review process more streamlined and productive.
