Maybe you've heard about Human Resources or HR outsourcing services - but what really is it- and better yet, does my company need it?

What is a Human Resource Manager?

A human resources manager is responsible for all of the functions that deal with the needs of your employees

Depending on the size of the organization, a professional HR manager is responsible for all of the functions that deal with the needs and activities of your company's employees. These professionals analyze candidates for certain positions and help select the one which fits the best. They're involved in making job descriptions for each position, so they match the right candidates with the right jobs.

An HR manager is responsible for training and the development of employees, which helps in their professional grooming and growth. The work of an HR professional can also include the communication between your company and the employees in answering questions related to benefits, unemployment, company policies and procedures.

Does Every Business Need HR Assistance?

Think of it this way, every part of your company serves a function, a purpose - similar to your body. While you may be able to lose the use of certain parts and still function, you won't perform at the same efficiency level. 

HR outsourcing provides the professional answers for a company to operate efficiently and effectively, dealing with the internal needs of your business - which in turn helps your company run at its maximum potential.

How PEOs Help with HR

PEOs have become a huge benefit for employers who need HR help but cannot afford the cost of hiring a full-time HR manager

Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs), have quickly become a huge benefit for small to mid-sized employers who need HR help, but typically cannot afford the cost of hiring a full-time HR manager. A PEO's HR department can help you navigate through employee hiring and firing procedures, tailor policy handbooks and give your employees 24 hour access to questions they may have. 

Managing unemployment claims, COBRA administration and EEOC compliance are just a few of the internal burdens that every employer spends too much time dealing with and that a PEO will handle for you.

In today's litigious environment, filled with increasing governmental compliance issues, expert human resource services must be included in your business operations - regardless of the size of your business!

If you have questions regarding HR outsourcing services, call ELQ, the PEO experts, at 1-888-582-8388.
