6 Reasons to Outsource your HR with Jacqui Adams


Running a small business comes with its fair share of challenges, and managing HR can often be a complex and time-consuming task. Many small business owners find themselves juggling multiple roles, leaving them with limited resources and expertise to effectively handle HR functions. Outsourced HR can provide massive cost savings for start-ups and small businesses while providing access to professional, qualified, and experienced HR advisors. Outsourced HR can also give you the same services you would typically receive from an internal HR team, but at a fraction of the cost.

Outsourcing HR

We’ve put together 6 reasons to outsource your HR as a start-up or small business:

  1. Cost-Effective

One of the primary advantages of outsourcing HR is the cost savings it offers to small businesses. Employing a dedicated HR team or professional in-house HR manager can be expensive, especially when considering salaries, benefits, training, and infrastructure costs.

By outsourcing HR functions, small businesses can access specialised HR services at a fraction of the cost, often tailored to their specific needs. This allows them to allocate their financial resources more efficiently and invest in other critical areas of their business growth.

  1. Staying Compliant

Navigating employment law is a complex and ever-changing area. By outsourcing your HR, you get the benefit of a qualified and experienced HR expert who can help you stay compliant with all relevant laws and regulations. This can save you time, money, and headaches in the long run.

For example, an outsourced HR provider can help you with:

  • Developing and implementing HR policies and procedures
  • Managing employee relations
  • Handling payroll and benefits administration
  • Conducting performance reviews
  • Responding to employee complaints
  1. Help Handling Difficult Conversations

As a manager, there may be difficult conversations that need to take place, often found even harder in a small working environment. If you have to discuss misconduct, poor performance, or absence, it can sometimes end in conflict. An outsourced HR professional can guide you through the process and advise on putting in place the best policies and practices to prevent escalation.

  1. Advice on Hiring the Right People

Recruitment is expensive, time-consuming, and if you hire the wrong person, it can cause delays and frustration. An outsourced HR team can manage everything from recruitment, job descriptions, advertising, CV reviewing, and more. If you’re hiring your first employees to begin your growth journey, you need to recruit hires that grow simultaneously with your business.

An outsourced HR service can even help you to form a view of the culture of your company and understand what you’d like your business to say about you. Shaping your recruitment process is fundamental to shaping the culture of the business to ensure you’re finding the right people.

  1. Support with Strategy and Growth

Small businesses often experience fluctuations in their HR needs, especially during periods of growth or seasonal variations. Outsourcing HR provides the flexibility to scale HR services up or down based on the business’s evolving requirements. Whether it’s recruiting new employees, managing benefits enrolment, or handling terminations, an outsourced HR provider can adapt to changing circumstances quickly. This scalability allows small businesses to focus on their core competencies while ensuring that HR functions align with their business goals.

  1. Employee training & up-skilling

Keeping your employee’s skills relevant and up to date can be time-consuming. Not all small businesses have the in-house experience to ensure their team has the best training and development programmes in place. Our Evolve hub offers training, coaching, and mentoring for your team and will help put a People Strategy in place. This will keep your team engaged in the business, which is one of the top ways of retaining your talent, ultimately keeping recruitment costs down in the long run.
