Why you should be outsourcing your HR department?

If your company is looking to expand to the UK, or if you’ve recently expanded but aren’t reaping the rewards you expected, it could be time to consider outsourcing. Outsourcing can help you save money and gain expert skills you lack in your business. And when your base of operations is outside the UK, outsourcing is particularly beneficial when it comes to HR. Here’s why:

Risk management

HR is a field filled with legal risks, and these risks are heightened when your local HR team is trying to deal with issues abroad. Changes to employment and labour laws are always occurring and can be difficult to keep up with – even if you’re located in the same country! It’ll be much easier to stay on the right side of the law, and keep your British employees happy, if you have a team at your disposal that are experts in everything, from PAYE and National Insurance to pension schemes and contracts.


One of the biggest benefits of outsourcing is improved efficiency. As the HR team you hire specialise in providing UK HR services to overseas companies, they will know the quickest and best ways to get tasks, such as payroll, done. However, you’ll only enjoy more efficient work processes if you choose your outsourcing provider wisely. Make sure you research your options thoroughly and look for feedback from previous clients to help you identify a provider you can trust, such as Goodwille.

Reduce costs

Done properly, outsourcing your HR department can drastically reduce costs. Leading on from the previous two points, by making your HR systems more efficient and reducing legal risks, your business will see costs lowered. Time won’t be wasted researching the latest employment legislation, an improved system will be put in place by the HR experts, and everything will run more smoothly overall.
