Taking care of them and retaining them for long periods of time allows your business to be more productive – which, of course, increases your bottom line.  Your business will keep growing and soon you will need to determine what to do when you can no longer keep up with the paper work and managing daily employee relations.   Outsourcing your HR may be a viable option for you – here are 5 reasons why. 1 - Access to Better Benefits Having quality benefits not only retains employees but keeps them healthy and productive with features like preventative care, low-cost deductibles, and lower cost prescriptions. With the ever-changing Affordable Care Act (ACA) regulations, it may be difficult to ensure that you’re offering the best benefit plans available.  Ask yourself - is your current policy meeting ACA regulations? Outsourcing firms, like Emplicity, offer solutions that include benefits administration. Your company will gain access to large-group platform benefits from companies like Anthem Blue Cross and Kaiser Permanente without the headaches of paperwork and keeping up on government regulations.   2 - Dedicated HR Partners Most internal human resources personnel are generalists and cannot provide you the detail and understanding that an outsourcing human resource firm can provide.  Your growing company needs support in areas of employee relations and management - because it’s not a matter of if, but when, a problem will arise that you cannot handle on your own. Reduce your risk of exposure and partner with an outsourcing firm that gets your business. 3 – Bye Bye HR Paperwork Tired of filling out forms and paperwork when new hires start? It is a thing of the past when you incorporate a Human Resources Information System into your workplace. What does that mean for you? Items like time cards and the on boarding process are automated – allowing you to get back to running your business. Your outsourcing firm manages the paperwork on their end.   4 – Payroll? That Can Be Handled Calculating things like benefits deductions and pay roll taxes can be difficult. Outsourcing firms can also provide this service to you – along with the associated administration of employee record keeping and reporting. Furthermore, those pesky W-2 forms are handled by the outsourcing firms so you can rest easy at the end of the year knowing that you’ll be stress free come tax season-- your employees will receive all appropriate documentation on time. 5 – Easy Access and a Partner to Your Business Your dedicated HR Partner will be a valuable asset to your company – learning the “ins” and “outs” of every facet of your business. They’ll understand your workplace norms and implement policies and procedures to keep your team productive and your company protected.  They’ll collaborate with you to develop a company handbook that will outline simple HR solutions for everyday workplace interactions. Your partner will also be available when you need them – via phone, e-mail, or in-person, depending on your level of service.   Emplicity provides HR Outsourcing to hundreds of companies in California – including Sacramento, Los Angeles, and Orange County.  You can get more information about our service options by visiting www.emplicity.com or giving us a call at 1-877-476-2339.
