HR Outsourcing

HR Outsourcing

HR Outsourcing (known as HRO) is the process of sub-contracting human resources functions to an external supplier to reduce costs and nonessential staff head counts. Reviews of business costs and processes have led many organisations to sub-contract some or all non-core HR and Talent Acquisition activities to specialist providers.

Whether partially or complete outsourcing, companies frequently outsource the following HR functions:
  • Talent Acquisition (Often via Headhunting Agencies)
  • Background Reference Checks & Screening
  • Payroll Management & Tax Filing
  • Professional Skills Training & CPT Tracking
  • Temporary Staffing Needs 
  • Employee Assistance/Counselling
  • Compensation, Fringe & Health Care Benefits Provision
  • Retirement Planning, Relocation & Retrenchment
  • Performance Management & Disciplinary Matters


Other Types of HR (and Business Processes) Outsourcing:

Business Process Outsourcing (BPO)


* Business, HR and related back-office administration or other non-core back office functions are outsourced to “PEO” or “ASO” Firms. An “ASO” or Administrative Services Organization is also often known as a Payroll Management Services Organisation (PMSO). The most significant difference between an ASO/ PMSO and a PEO is that the service provided through an ASO/ PMSO does not establish a company/employer relationship with the employees. Whereas PEOs actually employ the employees directly and then second these employees back to the Client on an agreed fees/ contractual terms basis.
