Have you thought about partnering with a PEO but are uncertain about the services and cost? Human resources tasks are complex, confusing, time-consuming, and put you at risk if not done correctly. It’s crucial to handle the numerous and intricate components of HR efficiently. 

Let’s take a look at the common myths of outsourcing HR.

Myth 1: “I will have no power over my business.”

If you’re contemplating outsourcing your HR tasks, you may be concerned about losing control of your business. Don’t worry, you won’t. Not only will you have complete authority, you’ll be the one making all the important decisions. Outsourcing your human resources provides you with greater control, as your operations become more streamlined, efficient, technologically advanced, and compliant. By opting for HR outsourcing, you’ll be teaming up with professionals who will assist and advise you, freeing your time to concentrate on expanding your care organization.

Myth 2: “There’s no need to partner up with a PEO because my business is not big enough.”

A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) tends to be the perfect solution for small businesses. By engaging in outsourced HR solutions, you can save time and gain access to top-notch expertise and advanced technology. A PEO can provide distinct advantages that aid small businesses in recruiting and retaining talented individuals, thus enabling them to effectively compete with larger companies. Advantages like access to master medical plans, reduced workers’ compensation claims, and streamlined payroll operations.

However, there are few options for medium to large-sized care providers to access a PEO catered to them. That’s where Procare HR comes in. Procare HR is a PEO that only offers HR solutions to the care industry, and can serve small and large care organizations with tens to thousands of employees.

Myth 3: “Outsourcing my human resources will affect my company’s culture.”

Outsourcing HR can relieve you of the burden of numerous administrative duties, freeing up time and energy to concentrate on improving your company’s culture. By delegating administrative tasks to an external provider, your internal HR personnel can enhance your company culture by eliminating any impediments to its growth. This newfound freedom enables you to intentionally devote more effort to enhancing your culture, resulting in improved recruiting and retention. In a time when the healthcare industry is facing unprecedented workforce shortages, it can make all the difference to tap into solutions that allow you to focus on the people aspect of human resources.

Myth 4: “My administration/managers can do the work that a PEO could do.”

Yes, you could hire the staff to replace the work that a PEO does, but unless you can hire a team with expertise in workers’ compensation, employee benefits, risk management, and all the other HR tasks like payroll and state and federal compliance, it outsources to a PEO.

It’s even more critical to stay current on HR laws and best practices, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Corporate Compliance Insights, there have been over 2,000 legislative changes in the U.S. alone that affect employment, payroll, and compliance. By delegating your HR tasks to an external provider, you can be confident that you’re partnering with a knowledgeable ally who will help you navigate these ever-evolving regulations and stay on top of your HR practices.
