Company growth is inevitably an exciting yet challenging time for any business owner. For our client, the growth of the business was leading to an imbalance between the time dedicated to the HR responsibilities and the strategic needs of the business.
The client’s request
With such rapid expansion, the owners were finding juggling the process of attracting and recruiting new talent while also managing the day-to-day HR and business responsibilities extremely time-consuming and approached us for help with overseeing the HR function.
How we helped
Following an initial free HR review and discussions with the business owners, it was decided that the best solution was to outsource the HR function to us, taking the pressure off the directors and allowing them to focus their time on what mattered most – the running of the business!
For this client, hiring an internal HR manager was not an option due to the high cost, and so we now act as their ‘virtual HR manager’. As part of our ongoing role, we offer strategic and organisational advice to the directors. Using our knowledge and experience, we have assisted the business with choosing new key staff members to join the team, implemented proper procedures and policies, and offered commercially based advice to their line managers.
Our support to the client is ongoing and has alleviated the pressure on the directors, allowing them to commit more time to their own workload, while ensuring that all HR matters are being dealt with by experienced professionals. Outsourcing HR to us has meant that our client now works safe in the knowledge that their HR responsibilities are managed professionally and cost-effectively.
