Why outsource HR?

More and more SMEs are choosing to outsource HR to free up time and save money. Many small businesses, especially when starting out, may lack the resources and personnel to have their own on-site HR team. For that reason, we see a lot of business owners handling HR functions on top of their other core business functions. This undoubtedly causes a lot of stress and overwhelm. HR is a complex process, requiring specialised knowledge in compliance with laws and regulations. If mistakes are made, it can end up costing a business both financially and legally.

By outsourcing your HR in Canberra, you will get a dedicated HR consultant who will take on some or all of your HR functions. If you choose an outsource HR provider like Employment Innovations, an expert Canberra HR consultant will act as an extension of your business, handling both your HR administration work and ongoing management of your employees.

We know that running a business is no small task and that your time and money is precious. Our outsourcing HR services in Canberra will free up your time while delivering comprehensive HR services in a way that adds value to your business.

By outsourcing HR, you are getting experts in the industry who have access to a wide range of resources compared to a typical in-house HR department. From better recruitment resources to HR software that can streamline your internal and external processes, having specialised advice & support gives you confidence that your business and its employees are being looked after in the best way.

What HR functions can be outsourced?

HR involves a lot of different functions, spanning the entire employee lifecycle from onboarding to offboarding. Almost all HR functions can be outsourced. If you choose someone like Employment Innovations, you will receive a comprehensive range of outsourced services including:

  • 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

In addition, we also provide businesses with complementary services including:

  • Payroll – Our complete payroll process brings together payroll software and local support to help ensure your processing is efficient, secure and compliant with Pay Conditions and ATO rules.
  • Workplace Health & Safety – Through a dedicated Safety Partner and WHS Management System, your business will get access to unlimited workplace safety advice and assistance, a compliance audit and safety plan, and safety tools and resources to keep your workplace safe.
  • Legal – Representation by specialist employment lawyers and advice on all areas of employment law.
  • Migration – We are partnered with The Migration Agency to provide support in navigating complex immigration regulations and visas when recruiting, onboarding and training skilled foreign workers.
  • EAP – Our Employee Assistance Program provides confidential counselling support for employees.

How does HR outsourcing work?

Outsourcing HR is when an employer contracts an external third-party provider to manage some or all of their HR processes. Different businesses will have different needs and reasons as to why they choose to outsource their HR. One of the most common reasons why someone would choose to outsource HR is if they haven’t got the resources to have their own on-site HR team. Other reasons why you might choose to outsource your HR include:

  • A lack of expertise in dealing with complex HR issues including compliance laws
  • A need for help with HR tasks such as recruiting and onboarding
  • Having a history of declining performance or employee misconduct
  • To save money on expensive HR software and resources
  • To gain greater HR expertise and training
  • To minimize and correct inefficiencies such as high turnover or lack of productivity

There is no one size fits all approach to HR. That’s why Employment Innovations provides a suite of HR services to tailor to businesses of all sizes and industries. Outsourcing arrangements can be on-demand, part-time or full-time, and may involve having an HR consultant working remotely and off-site or on-site as a member of your Canberra HR management team.

To discuss your HR outsourcing options in more detail, contact a consultant today.

How much do HR consultants charge in Canberra?

The cost of hiring an HR consultant can vary in Canberra, depending on the provider chosen and the extent of your HR needs.

At Employment Innovations, we provide different HR packages to cater to your needs and budget. On the lower end of the scale, we have our HR Connect service for as little as $250 per month. This is perfect for SMEs who need help on a one-off HR issue or access to HR documents and tools.

If you are wanting the full suite of HR services, then we offer an HR Partner service for just $1,150 per month. This option teams you with a dedicated HR professional or team to manage your entire HR needs and deliver commercially-focused outcomes for your business.

Finally, if you are looking for an HR Consultant to help assist you on one-off project engagements, we offer an on-demand HR Consulting service for a flat hourly rate.

One of the biggest benefits of outsourcing HR is that it saves you money. One of the most obvious ways outsourcing does this is simply due to the fact that you aren’t having to pay any overheads. Our services are also fully scalable too, allowing you to choose a package to suit your current business model. This allows you to control costs while ensuring that you’re adding value to your business where you need it the most.
