Human Resources (HR) management can be complex and it never hurts to have some extra help. Yet with human resources being such an integral function of most companies, outsourcing HR almost seems counterintuitive. However, many businesses find that there are several advantages to outsourcing HR, especially when you consider the vast landscape it covers, such as hiring, onboarding, training, benefits, performance management, payroll and much more.

When a third-party company such as Momentum Employer Group is contracted to oversee all or some of a company’s human resources functions, outsourcing can save both time and money. It can also ensure that employees’ needs and labor laws are met, while reducing the salary associated with full-time HR staff. Whether you choose to subcontract a single aspect, such as talent acquisition or benefits management, or opt to hire a full-service agency for their thorough expertise, here are four advantages to outsourcing HR.

Cost Savings

Outsourcing is especially ideal for small businesses that may lack the financial resources for a full-capacity, HR department. Mid-size to large businesses can also benefit from outsourcing HR by reducing costs associated with hiring one or more human resources staff members. The yearly cost of outsourcing human resources can actually be much less than a single, salaried staff member, with the added benefit of a full team of HR experts at your fingertips.


Not every company has the trained and skilled personnel to handle all necessary human resources tasks in-house, and instead tend to rely on other team members to handle those tasks. Hiring a third party will allow your employees more time for the work they were hired to do in their areas of expertise.

Risk Mitigation

It takes time and resources to keep up with the latest labor laws. Expecting a single staff member to stay up-to-date and compliant with employment law can be challenging and even a little short-sighted. Outsourcing firms like Momentum Employer Group provide the expertise your company needs by employing highly-proficient, HR professionals who are experts in the field.

Performance Management

As a business owner, it’s important that you do what you do best: running your business. It’s also essential that your human resources professionals do what they do best. By outsourcing HR, you can rely on professionals to implement an effective performance management program that keeps employees, and ultimately your company, headed in the right direction.
