When should a business consider outsourced HR?

In these unprecedented times, it is even more important that businesses receive the correct advice regarding people management and support.   An outsourced HR partner could be just what you need.

The pandemic has brought great uncertainty to businesses, as well as trying to navigate through the high volume of government guidance relating to the employment of staff.  This together with trying to manage relaunching your business and cashflow, can be incredibly stressful and the difference between surviving and closing the doors. An outsourced HR partner, with a commercial background and extensive experience of transformational change can support you through this.

Managing your workforce means different things to different businesses. Whilst it can bring a reduction of activity and sadly redundancies in some cases, in other cases – managed properly in line with a gradual recovery business plan can provide a more positive outcome of growth for the future.  All of these changes need to be planned and implemented effectively.

HR business partners are not only HR experts but are also commercially aware and can spot workforce efficiencies and business opportunities a mile away. In a nutshell your HR business partner can help drive a strong performing organisation.

SME’s are often concerned about affordability however the beauty of outsourcing is that you can opt for a retained service with a low monthly cost or only pay for the expert advice as and when you require it for ad hoc services.
