Any business can outsource their human resources department, whether that business is large or small. You may think that your HR department is too small to outsource but, in fact, small businesses often decide to outsource because of the money they can save. When you’re just starting out, you may not be able to afford another employee to handle your HR responsibilities.
To compensate, you may delegate HR-related tasks to your other employees, but this is not always an effective use of your resources. If, for instance, the department you’ve assigned payroll to becomes overwhelmed with their normal workload, then payroll will suffer – and your employees will not be happy.
Tasks to Outsource
For most businesses, their HR departments wear many hats. It is therefore not always easy to decide which services you’d like to outsource. Here at NetPEO, we can help set you up in an a la carte package or allow you to outsource your whole human resources department – it’s up to you.
If you’re interested in an a la carte package, these are some of the more common functions that businesses choose to outsource:
- Benefits, including 401K and health insurance
- Background screenings of new candidates
- Compliance with federal and state policies
- Employee counseling
Every business is unique, and so are its needs. NetPEO is here to help you outsource your entire HR department, if you so choose, or leave to you those responsibilities that you’d rather keep in-house. We will work with you to design the plan that’s just right for you and your business.
Benefits of Outsourcing for Small Businesses
Starting up a small business is rewarding work. It’s also a lot of hard work. You are responsible for everything that goes on under your roof, and that makes it difficult to focus on actually building your business. How can you focus on project developments and networking with other businesses when you have to calculate payroll each week and manage your employees’ health benefits?
Outsourcing puts those responsibilities into another company’s hands so that you don’t have to worry about them. When you can be confident that someone else will appropriately handle your administrative responsibilities, this frees you up to focus on what’s just as important: expanding and growing your business.
Corporations with hundreds to thousands of employees can benefit from outsourcing due to the sheer number of employees, and their records, that must be managed on a weekly basis. But it is just as important – perhaps even more so – for small businesses to take advantage of outsourcing as well.
HR Responsibilities Done Right
Just as stressful as spending finite operating cash is the idea that the people you hire to manage your HR department are not as skilled as they should be. The next thing you know, you’re getting fines and other penalties because you’re not in compliance with this code, or that law. You certainly don’t want the IRS knocking on your door because your payroll was calculated incorrectly.
When you outsource your HR department through NetPEO, you can trust that our skilled team will do right by your business. We actively monitor and rate the professional employer organizations in our network to make sure that your business needs are continually satisfied, not to mention keeping you in compliance and out of legal trouble.
Efficiency in Business
Even if you have a well-oiled machine for an HR department, things can still slip through the cracks. For instance, if your business is doing really well, you may not be able to get new candidates through the hiring process and training fast enough to get started. Or your managers may not be entirely sure of who to report certain issues to, so they end up unresolved for longer than they should be.
When you outsource through NetPEO, however, your HR department’s success is our sole business. We’re paying attention to every little detail with your PEO because it’s our job to make sure that you can do yours free from concern.
