According to entrepreneur.com, HR is “the department or support systems responsible for personnel sourcing and hiring, applicant tracking, skills development and tracking, benefits administration and compliance with associated government regulations .
A human resources department is a critical component of employee well-being in any business, no matter how small. HR responsibilities include payroll, benefits, hiring, firing, and keeping up to date with state and federal tax laws.
Any mix-up concerning these issues can cause major legal problems for your business, as well as major employee dissatisfaction. But small businesses often don’t have the staff or the budget to properly handle the nitty-gritty details of HR. Because of this, more and more small businesses are beginning to outsource their HR needs.
HR outsourcing services generally fall into four categories: PEOs, BPOs, ASPs or e-services. The terms are used loosely, so a big tip is to know exactly what the outsourcing firm you’re investigating offers, especially when it comes to employee liability.”
