According to the Guardian there are three reasons an employer should outsource their HR function:

  • Access to skills and knowledge.
  • Gaining better quality support than the business is able to offer in house
  • Cost savings. This cost savings comes from the company either not requiring an HR person in house or enabling the person who has taken on HR to focus on revenue generating work.

Most small to medium sized business owners know the frustration of spending more time than they want on non-revenue generating activities.

From payroll and human resource management to benefits and compensation, managers and directors can spend a significant proportion of their day engaged in these necessary but time consuming tasks.The answer for many businesses may be to outsource part or all of their HR functions to third party providers so that they can focus on their core business.

You are good at what you do, and I don’t know that you get told that enough. You manage to independently help build morale in our workplace, with only being here 1 day a week. That is a special gift. Sometimes you can create change by just being present, sometimes you have to teach others how to change; you do both. Please keep assisting us in learning to be better managers, hopefully we will all learn from you and implement it appropriately. In the end, you are really helping us be better people.
