Reasons why you should consider outsourcing your HR

Are you thinking of outsourcing your HR function but wondering what the benefits are?

Ultimately, HR professionals need to have a deep understanding of different rules and regulations, as well as specialised expertise and knowledge in the field. Having an HR manager onboard 24/7 can be a waste of money and trying to hire people internally could lead to crucial mistakes that could be easily avoided. In this post, we look at reasons why you should consider outsourcing your HR.

As a business that works with a lot of SMEs, Davenport HR understand that small companies with limited headcounts can find themselves overwhelmed by HR and its growing demands. If you’ve got CEOs and General Managers stretching themselves to cover the HR function, or you’re like the majority of other businesses that we come into contact with, you may believe your company’s HR skills are lacking, it might be a sign you need help.
Here are our top reasons to outsource your HR:


Working with a specialist HR Consultancy like Davenport HR can help to cut business costs, plus you’ll have more time to focus more on your customer-facing responsibilities and core business.

Comply with Legal Issues

As a business owner, you may be unaware of how strict the rules or regulations surrounding human resources can be. But when you’re outsourcing, you know that the person you’re working with has a deep understanding of HR and employment law and will always be up to date with the most recent changes, thus meaning your business will always be compliant.

This is particularly important if you’re in a heavily regulated sector, like healthcare and finance, for instance. People in these industries have to always make sure that they remain compliant and working with an HR professional that understands HR law in and out will allow you to do so.

Gain Greater HR Expertise

Outsourced HR can work with your current team to build their HR knowledge and skills. While we’re there to essentially take the grunt work off your hands, the best value will be found in developing a true understanding of why HR-related know-how is so important to any business.

Motivated, Engaged Employees

At Davenport HR, we’ll work with you to develop a benefits package for your staff. When you’re able to offer employees a great benefits package, and they know that you take your business seriously enough to work with HR professionals, they will know that you actually care about them as employees, which will make them more engaged and in turn boost morale. Your management team will also appreciate having a team of experts helping them with establishing a company culture.
