A lot of things about the corporate world may seem to have already changed in 2017, but one thing that definitely hasn’t is the necessity of ensuring that every department of your company is performing as well as possible.
That is certainly true of your HR department – if it suffers from glitches, inefficiencies or poor all-round performance, one of your company’s higher-ups may have to intervene, having been distracted from their core duties.
So, what can you do to stop all of that? By outsourcing your hiring function, that’s how – and here are three great reasons why.
1. It’ll save you both time and money
Managers never have that much spare time to waste in today’s ever-frenzied business landscape, so why allow the precious hours of your own firm’s higher-ups to be sucked up with HR?
Furthermore, while outsourcing isn’t free, the sheer benefits that it brings in terms of efficiency and direction can help to make it the most cost-effective approach to hiring. This is not least because it saves you from having to pay for your own permanent recruitment staff.
Indeed, there’s evidence that companies benefit from this kind of outsourcing, partly because it enables them to focus on their core competencies. In one study from a few years ago, 51% of UK companies said they outsourced their payroll and HR, with the significant majority claiming it brought them noticeable savings of both time and money.
2. It’ll bring genuine improvements to your recruiting
The art of a both speedy and thorough recruitment approach is a necessarily sophisticated and multi-faceted one, encompassing everything from job descriptions and job board postings to social media and interviews.
It’s unlikely that your own organisation will know all of the ‘tricks of the trade’ in terms of getting the right people, with the right skills and experiences, in your company’s offices… but it’s a very different matter when you work with renowned recruiters like Webrecruit.
3. It may even give you access to great-quality software
In a world in which companies are required to hold a huge amount of sensitive information about current and possible future staff alike, as well as manage it all efficiently and guard against potential privacy breaches and cyber attacks, it’s a pretty vital thing to have the right recruitment technology.
Webrecruit can certainly ensure that, with its Fusion software that can enable you to finally say goodbye to insecure and inefficient Excel talent pools. Instead, say hello to such features as a customisable report builder that enables you to determine where savings and efficiencies can be achieved.
