With much of the world still reeling from the onslaught brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, almost all businesses whether it be huge corporations or small and medium enterprises (SMEs) – have suffered major losses through budget cuts and massive layoffs. Most offices have likewise shifted to remote working as the new normal; adopting a hybrid office approach to mitigate occupational health and safety in the workplace.
Which is why some businesses have now considered outsourcing some business functions, including Human Resources, to offshore providers. Since 2020, the world pretty much has relied on remote work despite vaccine rollouts in most developed countries. Companies such as JP Morgan and Citibank have also advised respective staff that remote work will be the standard post-pandemic, with plans of requiring only 50-60% of employees to onsite business locations, and the other percentage to offsite work. With these developments, work-from-home arrangements and outsourcing seems to be the new reality post-Covid.
With the closure of most offices in the past two years, many companies were forced to lay-off a significant number of staff due to low revenues. This trend also means that a large number of companies will now be exploring to outsource several work functions to save costs. This pandemic has also significantly escalated the transition of HR professionals into a more strategic position which is more of a business partner, rather than a mere job function.
One of the most cost-effective measures to adopt is to outsource HR services. When a company chooses to outsource their HR function, it saves the business with the total cost of having an onsite HR department. ADDMORE Outsourcing offers a comprehensive HR solution designed to help SMEs, startups and even big corporations. Our skilled and highly-trained HR team will do its function even more efficiently with a quicker turnaround time as required by the company, including drawing up the much-needed occupational health and safety policies now that things are slowly getting back to normal post-pandemic.
In terms of the pulse of the labor workforce, some employees have become quite reluctant as well to come back to onsite work, with some citing that they are high-risk for possible infection. Some opt to embrace the work-from-home setup, as it gives them the option to be in close proximity with family members who require attention. This approach is a win-win situation for both employers and the labor workforce, as this reduces the need to have a number of people that you actually need in your office.
Employers and business owners need not be afraid to opt for outsourcing their HR functions as the benefits truly outweigh the risks, especially with the volatile situation the entire economy is still in post-pandemic. As the world slowly reopens, the hybrid work model is already becoming the new normal, and smart business owners should opt to adapt rather than wait. Indeed, outsourcing HR even during the pandemic times has become the go-to solution for entrepreneurs and even startups, especially with the uncertainty of the economy.
