Dallas, Texas (prfire) August 5, 2020 – A Texas benefits consultant at BenefitCorp recently created a blog educating companies on why they should consider outsourcing HR functions. Human Resources involves complex processes and can consume a lot of time for companies. Modern businesses, especially smaller businesses, are choosing to save time and money by outsourcing functions.
The blog begins by listing which tasks are best for companies to keep internal. These usually include talent development and recruitment, employee relations, succession planning, capital strategy planning and compensation design and delivery. Recruitment handled in-house works for targeting specific candidates for specific roles, however for larger companies hiring large amounts of new personnel to scale quickly, outside benefits consultants can help.
The best HR functions to outsource are those that require dedicated staff, time and resources to fill. These most often include temporary staffing, relocation, drug screening and background checks. Any task that does not affect the day to day operations is best outsourced. There are some regular tasks that can also be outsourced to reduce the workload for small businesses, such as payroll, coaching and updating policy manuals to be compliant with harassment policies.
Professional Employer Organizations, or PEOs, are popular and smart fits for small businesses. PEOs can handle benefits, payroll, compliance, workers’ compensation and much more. Hiring a PEO consultant allows business leaders to focus on growing their business and managing the day to day activities. Additionally, good PEO consultants are able to negotiate competitive benefits and health insurance and provide access to licensed HR attorneys.
Hiring PEO consultants and benefits consultants has become a growing trend for small businesses. Managing the minutiae of HR policies can distract business leaders from growing their businesses and having professional help allows them to scale quickly.
