Why outsource HR?

Human Resources (HR) is an important function for any company, big or small. The problem is, that it can also be complex. If you are like many small business owners in Brisbane, you are probably handling human resources yourself. This takes time away from other important business tasks, and, may lead to errors that can compromise the integrity of your business and the well-being of your workers.

Managing employees today requires specialised knowledge in order to meet ever-changing laws and requirements. If you aren’t keeping up-to-date with the latest legislation, you may risk costly fines or even legal action. By outsourcing your HR, you can gain peace of mind that your dedicated HR team are following these changing laws and keeping your workplace compliant. You will also have the freedom to devote your time to managing your business instead of keeping up with HR paperwork.

By outsourcing your HR, you will get a team of multi-skilled professionals who can work with you to understand your business goals and strategies. Many businesses don’t realise how time-consuming HR functions are. So saving time is one of the biggest advantages of outsourcing HR. It also saves money. Having your HR handled offsite reduces the costs of overheads and additional wages. Finally, outsourcing HR to someone like Employment Innovations keeps your employees happy. When your employees have access to fringe benefits and ongoing training & development thanks to a great HR function, they are more likely to want to stay with you.

The combination of mitigating risk, saving time and money, and providing employees access to the latest benefits and development programs is unbeatable in this competitive business world.

What HR functions can be outsourced?

HR refers to a range of functions, tasks and duties. That’s partly why HR can easily overwhelm many businesses, especially in areas where employers lack resources. With an outsourced HR team like Employment Innovations, you can outsource individual tasks or every HR function to meet your needs. Our range of outsourced HR services in Brisbane includes:

  • Unlimited Workplace Advice
  • Compliance Audit against Fair Work Act & NES
  • HR Health Check
  • Contract Templates and Workplace policies
  • HR Documentation and Tools
  • HR Software Optimisation & Training
  • Performance Management Support
  • HR Strategic Planning and Execution
  • Employee lifecycle (HR onboarding process, probation, performance check-in process, annual review, employee off-boarding process)
  • Performance appraisal frameworks
  • Employee engagement
  • Strategic recruitment support
  • Salary and remuneration strategy
  • Policy creation and training

Outsourced HR services can range from big to small such as: 

  • HR Administration –  tasks include record-keeping, internal and external communications, analyses and reporting and logistical arrangements. HR administration involves so many details and requires handling multiple tasks at once, making it difficult for smaller teams to coordinate. Skilled HR consultants like Employment Innovations can help manage varying workloads and improve your business’ workflow.
  • Payroll – consists of calculating employee earnings and factoring-out federal taxes. It also includes maintaining financial records of employees, the distribution of employee paychecks, and maintaining annual records of employee wages. The payroll process can be complicated and it’s often a huge overhead expense for businesses. Outsourcing payroll can save time and reduce costs, making the whole process smoother.
  • Compliance – Ensuring compliance is one of the core functions of HR and can require extensive auditing. Workplace laws are changing all the time, and SMEs must follow and adhere to these laws or otherwise risk serious financial and legal ramifications. An outsourced HR consultant will ensure compliance in all areas, including workplace health & safety, wages and employee management.
  • Benefits – Employee benefits include modern awards, insurance plans, retirement benefits and related benefit programs that contribute to the well-being of your employees. An outsourced HR team can help to manage employee benefits and ensure employees have access to the awards they are entitled to. Outsourced HR can also help to coordinate and implement training and development programs to strengthen employee skillsets and knowledge.

How does HR outsourcing work?

HR outsourcing involves engaging an external third-party HR provider to take care of some or all of your HR functions. 

At Employment Innovations, we provide outsourced HR solutions for businesses in Brisbane. We deliver HR support locally, and our team is available on-demand both virtually and on-site depending on your needs. When you choose to partner with Employment Innovations, our expert consultants will provide managers with the right tools, expertise and knowledge to meet all core HR functions of your business. 

Outsourcing HR is for businesses who:

  • Lack of money to hire new staff or cover the costs of an in-house HR department
  • Are small scale and don’t have the resources to manage HR
  • Don’t have the expertise to navigate compliance or other complex HR issues
  • Don’t have the time to devote to HR administrative tasks
  • Need help in onboarding and training
  • Have a past or predicted lawsuit or liability exposure

Outsourcing arrangements can mean that your HR consultant is working either by the hour, part-time or full-time. Depending on your needs, you may choose to outsource HR for the immediate short-term or over the long-term. 

To cater for these varying needs, Employment Innovations offers different levels of HR outsourcing services in Brisbane, including:

  • HR Partner: A professional HR Advisor will partner with you to identify your business needs/goals, audit current HR practices, and develop an HR strategy for the future. 
  • HR Consulting: An on-demand HR Consultant can be called to deal with one-off HR issues such as handling difficult conversations to do with misconduct or poor performance.
  • HR Connect: With a low monthly fee, you can gain access to unlimited workplace advice to help assist you in compliance, HR tools and resources and policies.

How much do HR consultants charge in Brisbane?

The cost of HR consulting in Brisbane varies depending on the level of assistance you need and the size of your business. 

If you are simply looking for expert advice from an HR professional, Employment Innovations offers a $250 per month service giving you unlimited access to HR resources, tools and training. 

If your business requires a more in-depth HR strategy, then you can utilise our HR Partner service from just $1,150 per month. This includes a dedicated HR professional who operates as an extension of your management team. They will take care of the entire employee lifecycle, from recruitment to retirement. They will also help to audit your existing HR practices and develop an HR plan to support your business growth.

Outsourcing HR is significantly cheaper than managing an in-house HR team. This is because in-house employees must be paid a salary, benefits and incentives. For this reason, many SMEs see HR outsourcing as a great way to save on resources while making use of the expertise and knowledge provided by an HR consultant. On top of this, outsourcing HR frees up time to spend on strategic sales and growth goals that contribute to increasing revenues.
