Today, the scope of HR function has widened from just hiring and payroll management to a large spectrum of activities like managing employee engagement, compliance management, employee retention, employee health management, performance management, etc. Managing all these activities in-house calls for a robust support staff in the HR department adding up to the cost of non-revenue generating staff. Hence, outsourcing of HR activities is a sensible choice in the current scenario for any growing organisation.
The benefits of outsourcing HR function are as below:
A well qualified and fully functional HR department calls for the hiring of trained and experienced HR professionals at high remuneration adding to the manpower cost; also setting up of the department requires additional infrastructure cost. Outsourcing helps in curbing these expenses extensively making the department leaner and manageable.

Outsourcing agencies conduct audits at regular intervals and also support the management by providing valuable insights about the employee performance viz-a-viz the organisational goals, in turn reducing the involvement of management in day to day reporting and functionality.
Sourcing of well-qualified manpower is a must of any organisations growth. Outsourcing agencies help in the focused hiring of manpower as per the demand and growth of the organisation, minimising the time and effort of the top management in the hiring process.
