4 Reasons Why You Should Outsource Your Payroll to a Recruiting Firm

Did you know that 49% of workers will begin a new job search after two paycheck errors? (Kronos) Inaccurately compensating an employee for their work not only initiates an awkward conversation but also creates a significant level of distrust between the employer and employee. Without taking a step into an HR professional's shoes, it's easy to underestimate the complexity of hiring and implementing payroll. For this reason, payroll is one of the most common outsourced HR functions. To break it down, outsourcing payroll is when a business delegates a portion or all of its payroll procedures to a third-party service provider. Here we lay out three key reasons to consider outsourcing payroll to a recruiting firm.

Prevent The Hassle

Just hired in a contract or direct hire employee your staffing agency sourced for you? This is exciting news to receive but consider taking precautions during the onboarding process. Instead of putting the individual directly on your payroll, consider letting the recruiting firm handle the workload for you. A new hire on a staffing firm's payroll prevents the hassle of letting them go on your end, whether it be planned in a contract or not.

Build Efficiency

Time is money, and implementing help from professionals can help build efficiency in your business. Relieving your company of this sector can allow them to focus on critical areas that aren't repetitive tasks like W2s. Considering the recruiting firm would already have a handle on your needs and business structure, implementing payroll becomes a much smoother onboarding process. Dealing with one outside provider instead of multiple is a smart move in the long run.

Save Money

Between purchasing updated software, the number of hours on paperwork, and knowledge of regulations, payroll in-house can get costly. You may find yourself surprised that you can use an outside source and possibly save money at the same time. Consult the recruiting firm you are considering on their pricing, as it will vary depending on the employee total!

Avoid Errors

Unpredictable tax burdens, changes in government regulations, employee-related overhead burdens, and a less-than-consistent business environment all combine to make hiring a sometimes risky proposition. Having a recruiting firm payroll current employees or new hires you have identified can help eliminate these risks. These kinds of errors are not cheap and hiring a professional will leave them liable instead of you.
