Payroll in particular, partly because of the massive compliance and legal issues arising from getting it wrong, and partly because it makes business sense.
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 all together. 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 head count, 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.

Few Points to consider when deciding to outsource your HR function
- Outsourcing HR administration services does not absolve the organisation of good people management practices. Nor the overall responsibility for the provision of HR services.
- Increasingly, Outsourcing HR administration services arrangements are often long term (five to ten years contracts are not unusual). An understanding of the organisation’s current and future business strategy and potential changing business (and hence risk) profile is important before entering into any contractual arrangement. This helps to avoid getting tied into unfavourable contractual arrangements.
- Standardisation of processes in line with preference of the organisation. Not that of the outsource provider. Ensure that you notify your service provider of your core preferences and that they are embedded into the work preferences.
