Complexities of Human Resources operations has necessitated 3rd-party involvement to assure operational integrity and compliance. Today, 80+% of companies outsource some or all facets of their HR duties, with that number steadily trending higher.
Time, cost and expertise are all drivers. Organization’s HR staff are stretched with their time and budget, and few (if any) have the ability to know it all and do it all. The needs are too great, and changes too rapid.
Outsourcing HR projects has proven most beneficial when encompassing flexibility – having the on-demand ability to source any capability necessary on an as-needed, fixed-fee basis. This allows scaling of capacity, while adhering to available budget. For this, having a single-source, go-to partner is preferred; an organization who builds familiarity with the staff, specific processes, geographic location and industry compliance needs of the company they serve.
A key aspect to seek when selecting an outsourced entity is their consultant’s certifications. Look for those with Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP) or the HR Certification Institute (PHR or SPHR) credentials. These professionals should also leverage beneficial technology and repeatable processes.
These consulting organization’s services offerings portfolio should encompass the areas of Recruitment Planning, Employee Relations, Performance Management, Compensation Administration, HR Policy & Procedures and Employee Communications.
