HR Outsourcing

HR outsourcing allows companies to optimize their HR functions by collaborating with external resources for specific tasks or comprehensive support. Our HR outsourcing professionals work with clients to handle all or some of their HR functions and offer customized services based on the organization's needs and growth stage.

The scope can be strategic, focusing on long-term planning, talent development, and organizational effectiveness, or transactional, which primarily handles day-to-day administrative tasks like payroll, benefits, and compliance. Our outsourced HR professionals bring specialized knowledge and experience you may not have in-house and stay updated on regulatory changes to minimize legal risks so employers can focus on core business activities.

HR Outsourcing Case Study: No Formal Performance Management System

Our client was experiencing a culture of complacency; they didn't have a mechanism for evaluating performance or contribution to the company. We created a performance management system with a balanced scorecard so employees could understand their roles and impact within the organization and implemented the following:

  • Developed a standardized form for job descriptions and partnered with the managers to complete Position Description Questionnaires ("PDQs"), tools that help develop the job-related duties for the position, skills, experience, and educational background for each uniquely titled position.
  • Created the outline for the Performance Appraisal form, which measured each employee against the company's mission, vision, and values. Culture was crucial to our client, so we created a section for organizational characteristics, which was the same for all employees. The second section tied back to the job descriptions and pulled the job-related data for each position so employees could be measured against their job responsibilities. The third section captured the goals for each employee and rated them using quantitative results.
  • The form was completed by taking the balanced score from each area, weighting them with an emphasis on results, and tabulating a final rating
