Here’s 4 ways you can get it 

(An honest review from an expert HR consultant)

What’s the best way to get your own HR expert for your business?

Here are 4 options:

Option 1: Train up existing employee to handle HR alongside their usual responsibilities.

Pro: This approach has the advantage of not adding extra expenses to your payroll, making it a viable option for smaller businesses.

Con: Thorough training is essential to avoid potential pitfalls (sometimes a little knowledge can actually be dangerous!), and overloading an already busy employee should be avoided.

Option 2: Hire an internal HR manager

Pro: Hiring an internal HR manager ensures you always have dedicated HR support within your business.

Con: It comes with recruitment costs, an additional salary on the payroll, holiday and potential other absence and ongoing training expenses to keep up with evolving employment laws.

Option 3: Use a national HR provider

Pro: Outsourcing HR to a national provider can be a cost-effective option for small and medium-sized businesses.

Con: It may lack a personalised touch, often being handled by call centres with different representatives each time. You may not get the commercial advice you require.

Option 4: Find an independent HR partner Consider outsourcing to an independent HR provider

Pro: This option combines expertise with affordability – it offers the benefits of an in-house HR team without the hefty price tag. Moreover, independent HR partners take the time to understand your business intimately, providing consistent and personalised support, even aiding in strategic planning. With The Absolute Works you will also get access to expert HR administrators and a team of payroll specialists.
