For small to medium-size companies, financial resources are tight and it is highly unlikely that you are able to have dedicated staff for all of the separate areas that you need to deal with, such as finance or payroll, or human resources services. Outsourcing to external companies can often be more financially viable than paying the salary of these dedicated staff members, with just as productive an end result, if not more productive.
You might think that you’ve been managing your own human resources services quite well up until now, but all it takes is for one tricky situation to arise and suddenly you find yourselves out of your depth. The law changes regularly, which can have serious implications for your business if you don’t keep abreast of these changes and could mean that you face employment law tribunals and hefty fines.
Rather than waiting for things to turn sour, you should seriously consider employing external HR consultants while things are going well so that they can continue to do so. You might think that this would be a foolish time because you have no need for changing your existing solution which so far seems to be working for you. However, prevention is always better than a cure, and if you do end up being in breach of employment law, there may be no turning back from that point.
If, like many small to medium businesses, you don’t have a dedicated HR person, the chances are that you have one (or more) member of staff assigning part of their time to issues that may arise. They may not be especially trained in this field and/or they may not have the time to properly focus on this area. Employing an external team of HR consultants means that you get fully dedicated and experienced staff, who are specialists in the area, working on this important aspect of your business.
