Customizing HR to Best Fit Your Business
If you’ve decided to outsource your business’ HR responsibilities, you may find yourself wondering which options are available—and which ones will work best for your business. Whether you are a small, medium, large or mostly virtual business, Abacus Payroll has some solutions for you.
Here are a few different avenues you can take to be compliant and make the right HR call for your company.
25 or Fewer Employees
Managing HR for a company that has fewer than 25 employees is a financial challenge, but outsourcing your HR might not be that much easier—or cheaper. Abacus Payroll’s HR Support Center, a service that starts at $11 per month, comes with a convenient online portal with 24/7 access, meaning you can address your payroll and HR concerns from any location that has a Wi-Fi connection.
HR Support Center also includes state-tailored information regarding legislature, labor laws, workplace compliance literature, and other resources to ensure that your business stays compliant and safe.
Approximately 50 Employees
For a business of around 50 employees, consider using our HR On-Demand service. Since your business is large enough to warrant additional laws and increased difficulty concerning compliance, HR On-Demand includes custom documents, literature, and training to help prevent nasty fees and litigation. HR On-Demand also allows you to chat with a consultant any time you have a question or concern about your business.
HR On-Demand starts out at less than $60 per month, and will focus on aspects of your business such as your employee handbook, workplace literature, and general training to keep your employees happy and your business afloat.
Over 100 Employees
If you have a relatively large business and you’re still looking to outsource, HR Complete is your best bet. This service includes the prior HR tiers—HR On-Demand and HR Support—as well as a dedicated HR professional who will work alongside your business to assess your progress and help build the foundation for future success. Naturally, this personal HR professional is still substantially cheaper than hiring your own in-house HR specialist or department.
Your HR professional will focus on issues regarding compliance, organization, and workplace culture, with the end goal being to create a workplace in which employees will thrive.
Accounting for Remote Employees
Remote employees are difficult to keep track of; while you’d like to trust that each of your employees demonstrates honesty and integrity every step of the way, people aren’t perfect and mistakes happen. For this reason, consider using Swipeclock or a comparable time tracker. Swipeclock allows you to see how your employees are using their time on their smartphones or other devices, and it synchronizes with your current payroll system to provide accurate, minute-to-minute results.
Swipeclock also tracks scheduling, paid-time-off requests, and overall attendance, so you can manage your employees from the easy-to-use interface in one convenient location rather than having to deal with multiple different systems.
Startup Support Center
As mentioned earlier, our HR Support Center comes with a full suite of 24/7 support; this is exactly what you’ll need if you’re running a startup. In HR Support Center, you’ll find a set of labor laws, a template library, and the ability to identify pain points in your business before they develop into full-blown issues. This won’t just help you avoid lengthy (and expensive) employment lawsuits and litigation—it will ensure that employees and job candidates see a culture of support when they enter your business.
If you struggle to maintain a competitive recruiting and hiring cycle, consider using our AdvancedHR tool to boost your numbers. AdvancedHR allows you to track applicants as they come and complete onboarding, thus removing the hassle from the hiring process. This service also makes the applicant end of the process a cinch with an easy application process, which lends a positive first impression to your company before an employee even walks through the doors.
Outsourcing HR is a smart but bold move, and making the wrong decision can result in innumerable logistical nightmares for you and your employees. For more information on how Abacus Payroll can help make your transition to online HR services a smooth one, call (856) 667-6225 today.
