Finding the right HR professional is tough, have you considered outsourcing?

At Essential HR, we deeply understand the appeal of maintaining an internal HR team. However, in challenging the status quo, we propose a shift in perspective: outsourcing your HR function. While the notion may initially seem unconventional, we're here to demonstrate how this approach can not only fit seamlessly into your business model but also enhance it significantly.

The Evolution of Outsourcing

Outsourcing, which began gaining traction in the 1980s and exploded in the 1990s, has evolved over the past three decades. This strategy is particularly familiar to small businesses that can't afford full-time, expert resources. Even larger organisations recognise the financial benefits, often outsourcing functions like payroll, recruitment & finance to cut costs. Our philosophy is straightforward: if recruiting an in-house expert is impractical or unattainable, find that external expert who can offer their services as needed. This approach not only ensures expertise but also mitigates risks associated with non-compliance and potential litigation, often a pitfall when non-specialists handle sensitive HR tasks.
