Why Outsource HR?

Organisations outsource HR services for different reasons and our approach is to understand each client’s needs and then provide them with the HR services that they require. However to give you some food for thought here are some key reasons to consider HR outsourcing:

  1. Improve quality – If you are an SME it will give you access to HR expertise that you might otherwise not be able to afford;
  2. Improve availability of resource – You have that HR resource and expertise available every business day of the year – no need to worry about staff sickness or holiday absence;
  3. Reduce cost – an employee costs not only salary but Employers’ National Insurance, Employee Benefits, paid holiday and often paid sickness absence and often overlooked – office overheads. It has been estimated that the true cost of an employee on average is salary x 1.7 to account for these additional on-costs;
  4. Improve efficiency – HR outsourcing allows organisations to become more efficient. Focusing on what is key to the success of their business;
  5. Innovation - Open Road HR, as an HR outsourcing company deal with a wide variety of organisations.
