How can HR outsourcing benefit my business?
Outsourcing HR can help save you time and money and can take the worry out of certain areas of compliance. You can choose to outsource some or all day-to-day administrative duties across HR, talent management, payroll, benefits, and more.
What is HR outsourcing?
Human Resources outsourcing (HRO) is when you contract with an independent provider to handle some or all of your HR functions. You can contract for a variety of services, from basic and administrative HR to more strategic offerings.

HR outsourcing means that a third-party provider handles some or all aspects of HR on behalf of your business. In its most basic form, you may be given a toll-free number to access an HR representative for assistance. Premium versions of HR outsourcing, on the other hand, are more of a partnership, in which a team of specialists get to know your business and help with both strategic HR planning and day-to-day administrative tasks. This arrangement is also known as full-service HR, managed services or co-employment.
HR outsourcing is important because it offers you an alternative if you lack the expertise or resources to manage the complexities of HR and/or prefer not to hire in-house staff for that purpose. In such scenarios, outsourcing HR can help you:
Available in all-in-one solutions or separately, HR outsourcing commonly supports the following areas:
Outsourcing HR offers efficiency savings, cost displacement and more services for less money compared to the expense of hiring full-time HR staff. HRO providers also tend to have the latest technology and software, which may be unaffordable if you’re operating your business on your own. As an added bonus, you’ll typically be paired with a professional who has vast experience dealing with common and complex HR issues and can help you more confidently navigate your challenges.
HR outsourcing providers that use per employee pricing structures can charge between 4% and 8% of each worker’s pretax monthly earnings. Others may charge a flat monthly fee. Ultimately, the price depends greatly on what your business needs. For instance, an entry level HR help desk may be cheaper than a professional employer organization (PEO), but it will not provide the same level of service or quality assurance that you’d expect with co-employment.
