In Part 1 we discussed the first three ways that HR Outsourcing improves your bottom line. Let’s recap:

  1. Improve the Quality of HR Offerings Without Breaking the Bank
  2. Increase Productivity Without Having to Reinvent the Wheel
  3. Focus on Growing Your Business and Stop Worrying About the Day-to-Day Employee Issues

If you haven’t read Part 1 yet, check it out here.

Now, let’s dive in to number four.

4. Save the Money That it Would Cost You to Have an In-House HR Professional

Let’s talk about not breaking the bank again, shall we?

Outsourcing offers an affordable alternative for companies to have quality HR services without the expense.

Due to the expense, a lot of companies, not-for profits, and municipalities don’t have any HR presence. That’s right, no presence at all. Operating with a quality Human Resources function exposes a company to employment law compliance risks (costing even more money – but more on that next). And the lack of a real HR strategy can hinder an organization’s ability to grow.

Outsourcing also allows companies to gain access to HR experts in the field of recruiting, coaching, training, compensation, compliance, employee relations, and HR strategy. These experts might otherwise not be available if the company was relying solely on their in-house department.

Here’s the real deal.

For a monthly fee, HR Outsourcing firms provide organizations with top tier certified HR Consultants, and serve as the HR Manager/Director for a fraction of the cost of in-house resources.

At the top firms, the HR consultants should be certified by either the Human Resources Certification Institute (HRCI) or the Society for Professional Human Resources Management (SHRM) to showcase their expertise.

So, we’re providing you with highly certified consultants for any HR service you could possibly need, instead of you needing to have all of this expertise in-house, at a fraction of the cost. But what else?

5. Reduce the Legal Compliance Risks for Your Organization

The numbers can get scary here – before you sweat, remember, we’re here to prevent your business from expensive (and stressful!) compliance fines and lawsuits.

Human resources can be a challenging aspect of business. (Trust us, we know.) There’s a lot to keep up with – and mistakes can hinder business performance.

What you don’t know, aren’t doing, and don’t have a plan for will be expensive, time consuming, and costly.

Here are some examples of what not knowing HR can cost your company:

  • $1,000 per mistake you make on the From I-9
  • $500,000 if you aren’t compliant with the Affordable Care Act
  • $55,000 if you don’t follow the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • $100 fine per qualified beneficiary, up to $200 per family, if you forget to offer COBRA
  • $1,100 per violation and back pay if you violate the Fair Labor Standards Act by not paying overtime wages
  • $50,000 or more if you get hit with one employment lawsuit

Law are changing frequently, and compliance investigations are on the rise. The savvy busuiness leader recognizes the need to be pro-active and manage these matters before becoming “bitten” by not complying with the law. Using a certified HR resource will make handling these matters simple.

Let’s Sum It Up

There you have it.

HR Outsourcing is all about saving money and time, improving productivity and profitability, reducing HR compliance risk, and, oh yeah, giving you the opportunity to do what you do best – grow your business!
