When is Outsourcing HR Right for You?

The ACA has added another layer of headaches to the challenges faced by every nonprofit in providing effective an work environment for staff while remaining legally compliant and serving your clients, students, or patrons. As you contemplate yearend changes, here is a good article from the archives of the Nonprofit Quarterly to help advance that conversation with your board or staff team.

Human resources (HR) outsourcing can address some of the staffing and skill-related problems that plague small and budget-strapped nonprofits. For these organizations, staffing an HR department with the right combination of full-time employees who have the right expertise can be a tall order. As a result, these organizations' HR departments may suffer from a dearth of employees or critical skill gaps.

Because of financial or time constraints, many organizations try to get strategic and managerial expertise from the same hire. As a result, they may hire a lower-level HR professional who lacks crucial strategic or managerial skills, or they may opt for a high-level professional who isn't interested in managing the day-to-day activities of the HR function. In either case, hiring an inadequately skilled employee only adds to organizational costs and creates greater inefficiency.
