Why Should You Outsource HR Instead of Automate It? Part 3
HR should be a core component of the company, serving as the heart of how employees relate to the business as an employer. Don't replace that opportunity to build employee loyalty to the company by taking the humans out of human resources. Instead, turn to experts and outsource your company's HR needs to avoid tricky situations like the following.
In this scenario, you invest in software to automate your human capital management rather than building a relationship with a dedicated HR provider. And because your company is growing, you need to hire some new employees to keep the momentum going.
You click a button to put a job posting online. Applications come in, but you don't see most of them — you have the system set to screen resumes for the keywords you want.
What if you miss out on a stellar applicant because their resume doesn't have the right keywords, even though they have the experience? A qualified candidate with incredible skills, who may have been the perfect fit, could be accidentally filtered out.
You miss out on great applicants because you don't have time to work on all the necessary setup, like background checks and reference calls.
Hiring & Onboarding
So you find a candidate you like (hopefully the best one wasn't filtered out before their resume ever reached your desk) and decide to move on with the hiring process. So you have your automated system send them the information they need and the forms they need to fill out to be brought on board. Saves time, right?
Are you sure you are providing them with all the information they need to do their job?
What if they have a unique personal situation that requires some additional flexibility when getting them set up?
Have you provided necessary trainings to protect your company from potential lawsuits?
After the Hire
So your new employee has been working for a while, and all seems fine. But wait — there's trouble in paradise. You're not sure about the finer points of the Affordable Care Act, or there's difficulty processing their payroll. Maybe you're having a hard time tracking their time.
What do you do?
It's simple. It's time to reclaim your time, keep your business safe from legal issues, and ensure that you have the HR resources you need to support company growth. And that means it's time to start outsourcing HR.

If you want to run a successful business, there's no better way to do so than by consulting successful business owners. This way, you get advice straight from the horse's mouth. After all, if you wanted to be in a successful relationship, you would probably take advice from someone who was already in a successful relationship. And if you wanted to write a book, you would probably take advice from someone who had written a book. The same goes for advice about running a business.
Chatbots are, for modern businesses, a gateway into the many uses of AI already up and running in the business world. These programs, developed through research into natural language processing, can imitate human conversation and solve tasks using an automated structure. Chatbots (bots is short for robots) can assist HR departments and leadership in several ways, particularly in highly repetitive tasks such as mandatory training, scheduling interviews, giving information about benefits, and other customer service needs. The HR chatbot programs have been specifically designed for the work of HR departments, and can be used across multiple platforms, such as company websites, email, and instant messaging and text services.
When an employee loves her job, she does better work. The employer keeps her busy with new challenges, and she keeps doing her job efficiently. Unfortunately, it doesn't always work out this way. Sometimes, the employee keeps going until she can't go anymore. An employee engaged with her work is a good thing, but burnout is a reality that should not be ignored.
