A lot of the calls we get are from companies looking for some sort of HR outsourcing solution…but they don’t want to give up payroll, they don’t want to “outsource” that. Funny thing is that when asked…most confess that they use an outsourced payroll service already. And, we know they don’t self-insure on benefits or workers compensation insurance. Therefore, they are already outsourcing 3 of the 5 legs of the HR department anyway.
Why not roll them up, get some economies of scale, tell Betty-Sue Badbenefits and Roy Shakeyriskmanagement to work in a department within the company that actually pulls in some revenue?
