Why should you outsource your HR and Payroll?

23rd May 2021

Building your business from a start-up to what it is today has meant you’ve sacrificed time with your family, full night’s sleep and plenty of missed social events. You’ve had to make tough operational and financial decisions, along with the ever standard ‘blood, sweat and tears’. It is often the case that business owners view their company as a family member so the prospect of relinquishing operational functions to another business can be daunting.

At Oberon Solutions, we don’t encourage a ‘drop off and collect service’, we become your partner; engraining ourselves into your business, your family.

We believe that your employees are one of your most valuable assets; therefore, it is critical that your human resources function is managed effectively. The various functions of an HR department are comprehensive, and with employment and labour laws regularly changing, it can be an arduous task to remain up-to-date on regulations. A mistake or oversight can have costly effects on your business.

“We take great pride in our meticulous approach in maintaining up-to-date knowledge and training in all employment and workplace laws. Oberon Solutions works with businesses to ensure you are compliant, mitigating risk and safeguarding your future.”

George Reed, MD, Oberon Solutions

As well as the cost of mistakes, in-house HR departments typically come with high overheads such as office space, regular training, salaries and non-revenue generating back-office expenses. When you outsource your HR functions to Oberon Solutions, we embed ourselves in your business, harnessing our knowledge, expertise and back-office software. This is particularly cost-effective when it comes to payroll. We take on responsibility for employee payslips, advising on tax and deduction questions and also offer a payroll analysis for accounting purposes.

As important as it is to find cost-effective business solutions, we understand that efficiency is imperative to profitability. Outsourcing your HR and Payroll functions creates higher productivity and streamlined HR systems. It also results in less time spent on complex HR processes and paperwork, freeing you up to focus on improving the efficiency and effectiveness of your workforce.

Many small business owners agree that their time is better served in other areas of their business. However, one survey indicated that 81 per cent of small to medium-sized business owners handle their HR on their own – and more than 30 per cent weren’t sure they were doing everything correctly. Partnering with Oberon Solutions will not only allow you to focus on other areas of your business while saving money, but it will also give you peace of mind that your business is in safe hands.

We place your needs at the centre of all we do, orbiting around your business to ensure we are providing you with 360-degree support.
