The Value of Human Resources Support
October 3rd, 2011
In many organizations, human resources professionals are known for processing information, whether that be handling an organizations’ job applications, interview forms, benefits enrollment packages, new hire data, company policies, or even social calendars and event administration.
But, great human resources professionals within an organization add tremendous value to the organization and its employees. They are capable of transforming organizations for the better when they are able to focus on outcomes and results that champion organization competitiveness.
Outsourcing human resources services can be expensive, and sometimes with a skilled staff on hand, it’s not necessary. But regardless of company size, responsibilities, and years of experience, every HR professional will need support at some point in time. The value of a simple support system, or even just a second opinion from a valued HR partner, can ensure that HR administration remains streamlined.
The value of human resources support includes, but is not limited to:
- Email & phone support from HR professionals
- 24/7 access to forms you may not have on hand at the office
- Handbook reviews
- Support with new employee interviews, performance reviews and exit interviews
- Unemployment Claims support
- Video seminars
- Onsite seminars
- Background checks
- Drug Testing
- Training tools
While outsourcing specialized HR services may be expensive, utilizing HR support is not, and can be as low as $0.14 per employee per day. The goal is to compliment the talent you currently have on hand, and gain access to HR management best practices. Expert HR advice can quickly prove itself necessary if your organization is ever faced with a costly lawsuit. Even quick and simple reassurances while selecting the best hiring option or contract for a new employee can save you money in the long run.
With a valued team of HR support on board, there’s no guessing and there’s no time wasted trying to navigate through the increasingly complex landscape of HR administration. Help is just a phone call away.
