Usually based on the number of employees and the particular services required. Charges range from 4% to 8% of each employee’s monthly salary.

Outsourcing a service would mean the removal of leave cover and office footprint. Also, any other indirect cost associated with an individual whose role is instead outsourced. You spend less on hiring and training. Allowing your senior HR management team to focus on their core role and responsibilities. Spending less time on HR activities frees up time to spend more time on strategic sales, growth goals, and increasing revenues. Research shows that despite working an average of 50 hours or more per week, business owners only spend about 30% of that time on actual business functions. In fact, the administrative tasks consume the most amount of time. Outsourcing HR and Administrative services free up a lot of time otherwise used for employee File and Leave Management.

4. Payroll Outsourcing

Traditionally, it has been the transactional, administrative functions that are usually outsourced. This is usually done in order to free up HR to engage in more strategic-led functions. Payroll in particular, partly because of the massive compliance and legal issues arising from getting it wrong, and partly because it makes business sense. Outsourcing payroll minimizes the costs and risks involved.

5. Shared Services – HR and Finance

Multi-functional teams are precisely what works for many companies. HR is too often viewed in isolation, separate from the rest of the organisation and the outfit as a whole, operates as a series of different silos. The age-old conflict between HR and finance is a case in point. Even though arguably these two functions have the most to gain from a joined-up approach and sharing employee and business data. Shared services go a long way to addressing this. But the three-legged model as a whole continues to keep them disconnected.

Organisations need to be more agile and do away with silos altogether. It is time for the “amoeba organisation”, with agile teams forming, reforming, and dissipating depending on the situation. However, many organisations are a long way from attaining this. This makes the headcount, expenses and the disconnect between the departments cost the company a lot more than what they can account for. Outsourcing these services to a professional company ensures that these silos do not exist. Giving the company a stronger process, quicker turnaround time, and clarity on the process.
