The benefits of outsourcing HR functions
From processes and procedures to systems and strategies, our team can help you overcome any HR issues you might have. Discover the benefits of outsourcing HR for your organisation.
Why is HR consulting essential for growing organisations?
As a small and/or growing organisation, your focus is on sustained growth. Dealing with HR and people issues can be timely and expensive (especially if things go wrong), and therefore, having an outsourced team you can trust can be vital, especially in those early days. From providing a full and compliant HR set-up (including contracts and handbooks) to helping you recruit and retain staff aligned with your mission, we're here to help.
Will I have a dedicated outsourced HR support advisor?
You can meet our HR Consultancy team above. When working with Buzzacott, you’ll have a dedicated HR account manager, backed by the experience of the HR Consultancy team and the 500+ experts that work at Buzzacott. This means you’ll not only have access to HR experts, but if required, we can support you with payroll, company secretarial, benefits and pensions and more, providing you with a complete outsourced solution.
What is an outsourced HR function, and how can it benefit my company?
An outsourced HR function is a team like ours, working with, but separate from your organisation to provide the HR services required to ensure compliance with the latest employment law and legislation. The benefits of working with Buzzacott’s outsourced HR consultancy services are numerous and include:
- Cost savings: we’re here when you need us and only then, meaning you have access to expert advice and support but only pay when you need it, rather than shouldering the cost of an annual salary. Working with verified HR experts (all of our staff are members of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development) means we’ll help you optimise processes, and by ensuring compliance, we’ll protect you from costly fines and penalties.
- Time savings: dealing with people can be time-consuming, especially if situations are mishandled. As a small or new charity or business, you’ll want to ensure your employees are looked after, but may not have the resources to dedicate to it – that’s where we come in, we’ll treat your employees as if they were our own, freeing up your time to focus on other elements of your organisation.
- Access to expert advice: as a client of Buzzacott, we’ll ensure you’re kept abreast of the latest updates and developments in employment law and legislation so you can ensure your organisation is compliant.
- We can grow with you: there are moments in every organisation’s journey where the pace of change outmatches the resources available, and that can lead to temporary inefficiencies while you work to evolve processes and recruit additional staff. Our team can work with existing HR teams to provide a helping hand when required, whether that’s supporting by reviewing compliance processes or assisting with company restructures.
What measures are in place to ensure the confidentiality and security of sensitive HR information?
We adhere to strict confidentiality and compliance processes, and any sensitive HR information provided to us is stored securely. Wherever possible, when sharing information with our clients, a secure online sharing platform is utilised. We keep all our files and other documentation relating to your affairs for a reasonable period which in no case will exceed seven years, in line with current data protection legislation.
How does outsourced HR support enhance employee management and development?
As a charity leader, business owner or manager, while employees will always be at the forefront of your mind, we understand that there are lots of pressures on your time, and that’s where our service can support you. We’ll do the heavy lifting of employee management, ensuring they’re supported (whether that’s through training and development, providing benefits and pensions and more). We can also support you with the tougher side of employee management and have those difficult conversations about change management, restructuring and redundancy. As your outsourced HR team, we can support you in putting your employees first, maximising their satisfaction, productivity and development.
