Staffing solutions are a core part of any business, which is why 59% of worldwide companies use outsourcing to reduce expenses. Effective outsourcing allows businesses to lower overhead costs, expand outwards, have greater focus, and improve service quality – all of which lead to a healthier bottom line.
Essentially, you need qualified and skilled individuals to get the job done, and if you don’t have them on your team internally, outsourcing is your best bet. But with so many staffing agencies out there, how do you know which one will be right for you?
In this article, we’ll explore three benefits of expert staffing solutions that Measured Ability South Africa (MASA) offers companies.
Through economies of scale, an outsourced service provider like MASA can run a more cost-effective staffing operation than an in-house process by leveraging expert staffing providers, administrators, HR & IR practitioners, and more.
Around 70% of businesses surveyed by Deloitte say they use outsourcing as a cost-cutting tool. We have geared every component of our outsourcing solution towards efficiency and cost-effectiveness, absorbing the vital costs for clients at every step of the way.
With an operationally-minded and entrepreneurial mindset, you can rest assured that our team provides only the most necessary services – minimising budget wastage and maximising every rand you invest in the staffing process.
We tailor each staffing solution to fit our client’s unique needs, covering essential costs, tasks and processes such as:
Payroll processing is a core business process that can be time-consuming and laborious, resulting in lost productivity and money wasted if you’re relying on inefficient or outdated methods.
By outsourcing your payroll, you can take a significant load off your business and free up precious time, allowing you to focus on more strategic tasks during the staffing process.
Our payroll services cater for:
- Staffing required (e.g. Accountant, financial manager, bookkeeping HOD, payroll HOD)
- Software and licensing (e.g. DBIT payroll, Microsoft, Pastel accounting, Sophos anti-virus, software support)
- Hardware (e.g. Server, laptops, VoIP phones, hardware support photocopier)
- Ops Cost (e.g. Phone line rentals, payslips, printing, bank charges, EFT fees, rental, electricity, landlord costs, repairs and maintenance, etc.)
By looking at the total time spent on in-house payroll management each pay period compared with outsourcing, it’s easy to see why so many companies are choosing a more professional, hands-on staffing solution.
It may seem counter-intuitive to outsource your company’s daily operations, but this is a powerful investment that pays dividends over time. In the long term, delegating these tasks to MASA saves you money and results in even better outcomes for your company.
We handle daily operations such as:
- Staffing required: Operations manager, recruitment personnel, site managers, ops dispatch drivers, nightshift drivers.
- Vehicle instalment, repairs and maintenance, fuel, insurance. Criminal checks, PPE issue and return, timesheet administration, printing and photocopying.
- Hardware and software support, purchase and licensing; laptops and photocopier.
- Rental, electricity, landlord costs, repairs and maintenance
- Recruitment criminal checks, advertising, vetting
Companies can focus more budget and resources on improving their offerings with these payroll costs, daily operational costs, and additional costs handled. Also, MASA is not subject to costly corporate head-office structures. What you pay us is what we re-invest in your site through infrastructural and operational spending.
One of the core reasons most companies outsource is to take the load off and reduce pressure on an operational end. An internal team or workforce has its limits, so companies can significantly reduce workload and boost productivity by outsourcing to an expert staffing agency.
MASA structures operations through innovative, customisable workflow processes based on international best practices. The massive technological advances of today are accelerating the pace of business, and outsourcing is the only solution that provides the flexibility to contend in the modern global arena.
Further Cost Savings and Work Load Reduction
MASA also absorbs the costs and tasks centred on:
- Human Resources and Industrial Relations: Full recruitment process, vetting, site administration, dismissals, CCMA attendance and liability.
- Risk management: Reduced liabilities – Contractual, CCMA, insurances, strikes.
- Administration: VAT, PAYE, SDL, leave pay, sick leave, PPH, council levies/returns and provident funds, loans (ad-hoc, weekly, monthly salary payouts)
As good as your team is, not every member has highly specialised knowledge in their field. Outsourcing your staffing can ensure that you get trusted experts on the job to complete specified tasks and take that extra workload off your business.
MASA’s vetting process is fully compliant with current legislation in South Africa. We use a rigorous screening procedure for all our staff members across all technical areas of expertise needed by companies today. Our team works hard on this groundwork so your business can focus on its core competencies and reduce the inherent risk involved in staffing.
By hiring the wrong person, you are exposing your business to legal repercussions, fines, or even closure. Partnering with a professional staffing agency can also dramatically reduce loss through theft and fraud, due to the thorough vetting procedures implemented by our team of experts.
