Have you been wondering how to approach human resources? Many business owners struggle on without HR support despite the constant increase in employment laws and spend a significant proportion of their day engaged in necessary but time consuming tasks, such as payroll and human resource management.

The answer for many businesses may be to outsource all or part of their HR functions to an HR consultancy so that they can focus on their core business. Wondering whether you could benefit from some HR support? Here’s a list of the main reasons why you may need some:

Cost savings: Implementing an HR strategy that supports business goals through the planned use of human resources will make a business more efficient.  For example, introducing sickness absence management can help reduce the cost of sickness to a business.

Legal advice: Employment legislation is changing constantly and an HR consultancy will provide up to date, practical advice to those they support. They will also ensure that internal HR policies are kept up to date and communicated to the workforce to prevent any issues arising.

Managing performance: An outsourced HR consultancy can work with management to ensure that business performance is improved and all employees are working towards the goal of improving the performance of the business, through fulfilling their own personal objectives. For example, undertaking training and development.

Recruitment: An HR advisor who knows your business can help with recruiting good quality staff, providing support throughout the recruitment process – drafting job descriptions, shortlisting candidates and organising the interviews, as well as ensuring that employment legislation is adhered to.

Objectivity: In many growing organisations it can be incredibly difficult for those managing HR functions to remain objective. Dealing with colleagues’ HR issues can be both awkward and compromising, and best practice can be affected. Within a smaller business the HR contact may also be working a dual role and issues can arise if they need performance support or managing for improvement.  The objectivity that an external HR partner can offer not only allows organisations to follow the rules effectively, but also gives them a view from outside which can be essential during more complex situations.
