Should Your Company Outsource Its HR Department?

Posted by Workbox Staffing

Jul 18, 2018 11:00:00 AM

 

Whether to keep a department in-house or outsource the work is always a consideration for businesses. Each offers its own pros and cons, so at the end of the day it comes down to what will work best for your unique operation. If you only require certain marketing projects throughout the year, an agency you work with when needed is likely the best budgetary decision for you. Another department worth considering is human resources.

Before, it was an area focused on simple tasks, including mediating employee disputes, hiring, and letting employees go. Instead of HR falling under another department, it now needs a dedicated presence to ensure compliance. Because of this, many companies, especially small businesses, are electing to outsource some or all of their human resources work. If you’re wondering which the right option for you is, ask yourself the following three question.
