HR outsourcing

What is HR Outsourcing?

HR outsourcing is the process of contracting out a business’ human resource functions and services to an external party. Many organisations large and small opt to sub-contract these services, along with all other non-core business functions to specialist firms in order to better focus on core competencies. HR services are naturally time-consuming and complex, and can often be an afterthought for new and growing companies. By outsourcing your HR services, your business can focus on what it does best.

Why consider outsourcing your HR?

HR outsourcing will save you time and money. In the early days of setting up your own business you may choose to do everything yourself, but as you start to grow and take on more staff you’ll find that you have less and less time to dedicate to administrative tasks. Many of our clients found themselves in this position and chose to subcontract their human resource functions to allow them to spend more time on business development. Outsourcing not only saves you time, but money too, and it increases the efficiency and compliance of a company, with support from an experienced HR professional always on hand.

How can My HR Hub help you?

We can help your Nottingham, Derby or Leicester-based business with anything and everything that has to do with people, with a wide range of HR outsourcing solutions to suit. We’re also flexible around what you need, whether that’s on an ad-hoc basis, or for a set number of hours/days per month. Here are some of the areas we specialise in:

Developing your HR strategy

‘The People Plan’ isn’t just about your people; it underpins and impacts your whole business.  Outsourcing your HR functions can help you assess what people activities will help you reach your business goals. We will help you define where you are going as a business and identify plans for action; focusing on activities that are practical, relevant and cost effective. We will help set out what needs doing, by when and how to do it, from top level HR strategy development to the grassroots operational delivery.

We are generalist, have breadth and depth knowledge and cover all areas of the employee life cycle.
