7 Common HR Outsourcing Myths, Debunked

HR is more time-consuming and expensive for employers than ever, and many owners have increasingly turned to outsourcing – with good reason. Outsourcing your HR department can help drive efficiency, protect you from unseen liabilities, and ensure your company provides the right benefits to attract and retain talent. 

One solution for outsourcing HR is a PEO, like Staff Leasing. PEOs are firms that allow companies to outsource HR management responsibilities such as payroll, employee benefits, HR administration, risk management, compliance, recruiting services, and more.

If you’re reading this, it’s likely that you have some interest in outsourcing, but are skeptical. That’s perfectly understandable. It’s hard to let go of parts of your business you’re used to managing yourself. Get your copy of this eBook to get some clarity on common HR outsourcing myths.

Here’s the misconceptions about HR outsourcing and PEOs that we’ll be debunking:

Myth #1: Outsourcing my HR will negatively impact my employee experience.

Myth #2: My business is too big/small to benefit from a PEO.

Myth #3: I’ll be paying for things I don’t need.

Myth #4: I can’t afford it.

Myth #5: I’ll lose control of my business.

Myth #6: I have to choose between an in-house HR team or a PEO.

Myth #7: Switching to a PEO is too complicated.

These myths can prevent business owners from choosing to partner with a PEO, even if this solution might be what’s best for the company. That’s why it’s important for business leaders to research PEOs to find the one that is best-suited for the needs of their business. 

The bottom line is that for most businesses, outsourcing is a smart move, especially if your business is expanding. The assistance an outsourced HR team can give you is invaluable. You can breathe a sigh of relief knowing a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) is keeping things under control. HR is becoming more complex and demanding, so it’s wise to leave it to the experts.
