HR and IR: Why Blue-Chip Companies Prefer to Outsource
Outsourced human resources (HR) and industrial relations (IR) services are used by blue-chip multinational corporations globally. There are multiple reasons for this, which we will discuss in this article. One crucial motivation for most companies is that top staffing agencies offer on-demand expertise in these areas, so you don’t need to spend the time or additional resources on it yourself.
The benefits of outsourcing HR and IR are especially significant during times of economic uncertainty and the various challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Companies across the globe are facing pressures to cut down their costs as much as possible by streamlining HR and IR operations.
A survey by Deloitte showed that 78% of companies feel positive about their outsourcing relationship with staffing agencies. Leveraging the outsourced HR and IR services that top staffing agencies like MASA offers is a powerful way to reduce pressure on the company, maintain a steady flow of revenue and reduce operational costs over time.
As a preferred partner for outsourced human resources and industrial relations, we have learned that the most successful blue-chip companies share this empowering trait:
They all have a broad outlook towards the future.
From the outside looking in, outsourcing your HR and IR may seem like an unnecessary expense. However, when you connect with an experienced, versatile and industry-leading agency, it becomes significantly clearer that the short and long-term benefits of outsourcing HR and IR operations far outweigh the initial costs.
This fact is why we are seeing an increase in the number of companies outsourcing their HR, with over 60% of South African companies looking to human resource outsourcing to meet their transactional and transformational HR and skills needs.
Ultimately, the need for expertly managed human resources is growing rapidly, with blue-chip companies leading the way to find the most efficient and cost-effective methods to thrive in today’s economy.
