In the past, HR departments generally functioned in-house. But that’s rapidly changing. Why? Small businesses and startups don’t have the time or resources to deal with administrative tasks like payroll, vacation time, and benefits. And it’s not always economical to hire in-house staff for those duties.
Nearly 85% of firms now choose to outsource at least some of their HR functions. And in the past few years it has become more accessible to small business owners. Outsourcing frees up more of your time to focus on strategic initiatives like recruiting, culture, retention, engagement, hiring, talent development, etc.
