CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- HR is still among the most outsourced functions within an organization. But one solution does not fit all. Human resources managers need to be cautious in relying solely on outsourcing for productivity improvements, according to information from the benchmarking corporation Best Practices, LLC which can be found in the research study "Achieving HR Administration Excellence -- Shared Services, Outsourcing and Cost Reduction" (http://www3.best-in-class.com/rr877.htm).
For instance, even though 73% of companies outsource Employment Verification, companies that have internal processes for this HR function far outperformed those with outsourced processes.
This research study package provides a comprehensive, data-driven look
at structure and staffing efficiency specific to HR records management,
data support/shared services as well as Leave of Absence/FMLA programs for
the most important HR functions. Metrics highlighted in this research
-- HR Process Gap Analysis: A typical company at the benchmark average has
an overall performance gap of approximately 20 FTEs over a total of 10
important HR processes relative to high performing organizations.
-- HR Service Center Process Complexity: The level of rework and overall
cycle time is higher and the level of outsourcing is lower for more
complex HR processes such as the management of HR system tables and
large-scale data updates.
-- HR Staff Composition: More expensive labor accounts for the majority of
payroll -- HR Service Center staff is composed of HR Specialists (21%),
HR Generalists (15%) and managerial staff (10%).
