Human Resource Management
In business, there are undeniable maxims. One of them is that employees are a company’s most valuable asset. It’s also true that if you take care of your employees, they’ll take care of your customers and your business. So, human resources administration is a mission-critical task.
But, managing the entire employee lifecycle – from recruitment to retirement – is a big job. There are lots of complex, moving parts, including government-mandated requirements.
A mistake could cost your small company – in more ways than one. From expensive fines to an employee base with one foot out the door, mishandling human resources can undermine your business.

What HR Services Should You Outsource?
Small business owners often don’t want or are not equipped to handle HR functions internally. To gain expertise and time, they may choose to transfer some or all of those responsibilities to a third-party human resources management services provider like Axcet HR Solutions, which then becomes responsible for the contracted HR functions.
Commonly outsourced HR tasks include:
- Recruiting, hiring, and retention strategy development
- Employee handbook and policy manual development
- Background checks and drug screenings
- Employee relations and employee engagement
- Performance management, employee discipline, and termination guidance
- Unemployment claims processing
- Researching, preparing, and updating affirmative action plans
- Regulatory compliance management
As a top PEO HR solutions provider in Kansas City, Axcet offers clients the flexibility to choose which services they outsource. Some smaller businesses prefer to let Axcet handle all the above duties and more, while others take a more à la carte approach, outsourcing select services and keeping others in-house. The ability to choose the human resources services they outsource allows small and mid-sized businesses to gain the exact expertise and administrative HR relief they need.
When to Outsource HR
If you run an SMB and are trying to decide whether or not HR outsourcing is right for you, step back and evaluate the state of your company. The more time your leadership team is spending on routine but necessary work like performance management or compliance issues, the less time and energy are available for strategic planning and revenue-producing functions.
If some of these factors are true of your company, it’s time to consider human resources outsourcing services:
Your business is sluggish
The amount of time your team has to spend on HR administration each week can become a distraction that contributes to business stagnation. Turning to an HR consulting firm like Axcet for human resources management services frees up time your internal team can redirect to strategic activities. As another benefit, businesses that partner with a PEO tend to grow 7% to 9% faster than those that don’t engage a PEO’s services.
Your business is booming
The more workers your company adds, the more important – and demanding – HR issues become. Outsourcing not only gives you access to knowledgeable consultants who can develop competitive compensation plans and well-thought-out employee policies, but who also can train managers and employees to help you maintain or improve your culture as the company grows.
Your employees are disengaged
When employees are committed to the organizations they work for and actively seek to advance their employers’ missions, productivity and profitability improve. Leaning on Axcet to provide guidance, offer training, and develop meaningful employee initiatives, your small company can boost engagement, create a desirable culture and reduce turnover.
You aren’t happy with recruiting and retention outcomes
Finding and keeping the right people for the right jobs is imperative to business success. Axcet’s human resources consultants, who are experienced in the most advanced recruiting, hiring, and retention strategies and technologies, can help you find high-performing candidates who embrace your company’s culture and mission.
You’re struggling to keep up with compliance issues
It’s hard enough to be aware of the vast number of city, county, state, and federal employment regulations with which your small business is expected to comply. It’s harder still to keep up with these laws when they change regularly. Axcet HR Solutions, an expert in all aspects of employment, will be your best partner to ensure your company adheres to every necessary regulation.
