Why would a company need HR support?
Is your controller trying to juggle financial reporting and creating a new employee handbook? Is your office manager answering the phone while conducting new hire orientations? Is your bookkeeper administering COBRA? With HR related laws and policies tightening each year, it’s time to bring a true focus to human resources.
The type of support you need will depend on your current business structure and your future plans. MSS can assist with the set up and development of policies, procedures for businesses as well as assisting with compliance, benefits administration and employee relations for established businesses. A rule of thumb for consideration is if you spend more than 25% of your time dealing with HR Related issues, it is time to consider outsourcing.
Why should a company consider using a smaller HR consulting firm versus one of the larger organizations? Boutique firms can offer the same level of qualified expertise as the larger firms, but many times at a more cost effective price and with superior customer service due to the personal touch they offer. The end result to the client is a greater return on investment.
With a smaller firm, every action is of great importance and gets constant attention. The relationship between the client and the HR firm is the primary focus. The client and provider are connected all the time. Communication is critical and guaranteed by the boutique firm. A boutique firm is more concerned about its reputation and counts on satisfied customers and referrals to help it grow. End results are everything to a smaller firm. A smaller firm also values its talent base of HR professionals more than a larger firm; they are considered their largest asset.
To the HR consultant, working at a smaller firm is more gratifying, they feel like they can make a difference and they are treated as a “valued partner”, not simply an employee. Clients receive solutions for them and not a one size fits all approach. Flexibility is much greater at smaller firms. Boutique firms are easier and more accessible for the busy HR professional to partner with. And generally, due to the lower overhead, smaller firms pricing structure is often more cost effective than the giant international firms. Finally, the boutique firms know the local market more than the larger firms. This market knowledge can be harnessed to the advantage of the client company.
