Why outsource HR?

More SMEs are now outsourcing their human resources to a third party service provider. And it’s easy to see why when you consider the benefits;

Time savings – HR requires a lot of time dealing with administrative issues. Handing this over to an outside provider such as Employment Innovations frees you up to focus on growing your business and increasing your revenue. This can provide an ROI that far outweighs the cost of outsourcing.

Cost savings – maintaining an HR department in-house can be costly, requiring additional office space and salaried staff. Having your HR handled offsite will save you money on wages, as an outsourced HR consultant charges only for their time.

Expert support – HR consultants can offer a level of specialist advice and support that an in-house team may not be able to achieve. A good example of this is EI’s highly innovative Lean HR model which allows HR responsibilities to be absorbed by line managers when given the right training, advice and tools, creating efficient HR processes.

Ongoing compliance – if you don’t have the specialist knowledge to remain compliant with employment legislation and Fair Work Obligations, you’re creating risk for your business. An outsourced HR consultant would ensure compliance in all areas, including employee management, wage law and workplace health & safety.

What HR functions can be outsourced?

Most aspects of HR can be outsourced and at Employment Innovations, we provide the following services;

Designed to reduce the risk of injury, worker’s compensation claims and fines and penalties, our Safety Partner package includes a dedicated safety consultant providing ongoing compliance monitoring, support and training.
  • Payroll – a one-touch payroll service that is efficient, secure, accurate and compliant with Pay Conditions and ATO rules. Benefits include 24/7 reporting, integration with cloud-based systems and end-to-end processing of employee salaries (weekly, fortnight or monthly).

How does HR outsourcing work?

Businesses will often outsource their HR if they;

  • Can’t afford a full-time HR department;
  • Don’t have the expertise to deal with complex HR issues;
  • Don’t have the time to devote to the administrative aspects;
  • Would prefer to be focusing on core business objectives such as growing their business;
  • Need help with onboarding or training;
  • Are experiencing recurring issues with compliance, employee behaviour or declining performance.

 

Outsourcing involves using the services of a professional HR service provider to handle some or all of your human resources functions on a long-term basis.

While some providers focus more on routine HR tasks such as payroll and recruitment, others offer a wider range of services and a greater or lesser level of participation, depending on your needs.

Outsourcing arrangements can involve an HR professional working either by the hour, part-time or full-time and either offsite working remotely from a separate office or on-site liaising with your management team.

To cater for this wide variation in outsourcing needs, Employment Innovations offers several different levels of HR services including;

  • HR Connect – a low monthly fee for access to information, tools and resources and unlimited HR advice.
  • HR Partner – your business partners with a dedicated HR professional advisor to help you identify your business needs, audit current HR practices and develop and execute a strategic HR plan for the future.
  • HR Consulting – an on-demand consultant who can be called in to deal with one-off issues such as managing investigations, under-performance, grievances or misconduct.

How much do HR consultants charge in Sydney?

The cost of HR consulting varies widely across Sydney, depending on who you employ and the level of assistance your business requires.

If you require on-demand HR support, tools and advice, Employment Innovations’ services start from just $250 per month. This low fee provides Sydney businesses access to a virtual HR Advisory service, which includes ongoing remote access to a dedicated HR professional, underpinned by proven HR tools, processes and training.

And at the other end of the scale, if your business requires more comprehensive HR input, strategy and “seniority’, our HR Partner service from just $1,150 per month which covers all your human resources needs.

It includes HR tools, advice and a dedicated HR professional operating as an extension of your management team, who will take care of the life cycle of your employees from recruitment to retirement. They will also help you audit your existing HR practices, identify current and future business needs and develop an HR plan that will work for your business as it grows.

Given the return on investment it provides, the cost of HR consultancy is not high. It saves you from having to set up your own in-house HR team, something many businesses simply can’t afford. And by freeing up your staff to focus on core business objectives, it could be argued that the cost is negligible when compared to the value it offers.
