10 Reasons Why Companies May Need ER & HR Support

So many companies struggle without the aid of an HR Manager or any form of HR support despite the constant increase in employment law. However, ER and HR can provide invaluable support to so many areas of people management, mitigate litigation among other things.  Here are ten reasons why companies like yours may need ER and HR support.

Cost savings

HR can contribute to cost savings. One example is to implement an HR strategy that can support business goals making a business more efficient through the planned use of human resources.  Another example can be to introduce sickness absence management controls: the cost of sickness can be reduced, which can be a huge expense to a business if allowed to get out of hand.

Managing performance

HR can help manage performance in several ways.  Business performance can be improved by the implementation of an integrated performance management system, ie company-wide appraisal system. With a top-down approach from senior managers, all employees work towards the common goal to improve business performance through the fulfilling of their own personal objectives. Performance management can also be about managing poor performance through a capability process where poor performers are either supported to improve or are performance managed out of the business, with capability being a fair reason for dismissal. HR can work with management to ensure that either of these processes is correctly implemented.

Generally speaking, the top three reasons cited for outsourcing HR are:

* Access to skills and knowledge;

* Gaining better quality support than the business is able to offer in-house; and

* The costs saving.
