What are the benefits of outsourcing Human Resources? | Surety HR

Surety HR has partnered with Virteom to engage our customers about our services. In our video, Jacqui and Andy talk about the benefits of outsourcing HR rather than having an internal HR department or person dealing with employment-related distractions.

There’s a Lot More to Human Resources (HR) Than People Think

HR is a broad term and a very broad discipline. It's not just simply hiring and firing people. There are many different disciplines including recruiting, wage/hour type situations, and compliance. Engaging in legal services is really outside of the course and scope of what a normal HR person would do. But for smaller employers, they often see the HR person take on this role. 

The value in outsourcing human resources is that it provides small and medium sized businesses all of those different disciplines for a fraction of what it would cost to do this internally. There's a lot of times where you don't know what you don't know, and different situations may arise that employers aren’t equipped to handle. 

Don’t Underestimate the School of Hard Knocks When It Comes to HR

We have seen a lot of different situations and we're able to kind of pull from our experiences and a vast array of professional knowledge (ranging from 401(k) to Workers’ Comp, Payroll, and more). Spooner Inc., itself, the parent company of Surety HR, and over time we've learned a lot just from the school hard knocks.

We've been there and we've lived it. We've got the experience to make sure that they small and medium businesses don’t fall into those costly pitfalls. Thing that fall under disciplines like litigation, compensation, compliance, and more. 

Companies save money internally while making sure all areas are covered, for the employer’s protection. So, you're not having to take that extra step to go to legal or compliance to fill in those gaps. Surety HR is a one-stop-shop where we can do it all for the employer.

HR Tools and Knowledge You Can’t Get Internally Become Easily Accessible

This document shows how employees who manage HR (or small business owners who wear that HR hat) can spend up to 24 hours a month trying to find out an answer to a major question they could easily get in seconds, right through Surety's HR support center platform. We can have this technology at their fingertips or you can research to grab templates, make sure that they're compliant, and come up with handbooks in all 50 states. It's just a really powerful platform. 

We look at it as a library where you can find and research different topics. You can ask questions with a ticketing system – where questions are answered by an HR professional within 24 hours. It keeps the track & archives the history of those tickets. You can go back and you don't have to ask someone the same question again – because don’t we all hate doing that?

The True Value of an HR Ticket System & Resource Center

A good example of a situation where our tools saved a company time and effort. A good number of our clients are in the manufacturing world. Let’s say, for instance, it’s getting towards the end of the year and they're going to be laying people off. They always do this because it's mandatory. You can learn answers to questions like, “Do they have to pay those people unemployment?” This is all tracked and ticketed within the Surety HR support center platform.

However, this isn’t just a library – it's just a tool. We have HR professionals assigned to each one of our clients so they can answer questions if and when those situations do come up.  You've got the 24-hour hotline, calling a live person, or within 24 hours you can ask the ticketing system with technology. You may even find the answer yourself in this in this library in the system ahead of time.

Outsourcing your human resources to a PEO like Surety HR leads to these benefits and more. You'll get that HR help desk system and get answers within 24 hours for any of your questions in addition to a library of readily available knowledge. 

If you're a small or medium business and are looking large-scale HR management, you can get economies-of-scale by working with Surety HR. Visit our Contact Us page to get in touch and get your HR needs taken care of!

Understanding At-Will Employment

By Surety HR
May 21, 2019 Category: At Will Employment, For Employers, Employee Handbook

What is At-Will Employment? At-will employment is a common law rule which means that an employer may terminate anytime for any reason with or without cause or notice for any reason by law or no reason at all. Too many Ohio employers rely on at will employment to terminate an employee without checking all of the facts and really taking it on a case by case basis. At-Will Employment and the BIG 3Exceptions for Ohio Employers Illegal Reasons for Termination For example, you can terminate an employee if they come into work with pink, blue, or any crazy colored hair but you cant for a social anxiety disorder, and it becomes a slippery slope if there are no performance issues. The employee that has the pink hair could hire an attorney and believe that she was fired because of her social anxiety disorder and not her hair. So, you havegot to be very careful. As an employer, you want to make sure that there are no illegal reasons for termination such as social anxiety disorders or any disabilities;

The Importance of Immediately Documenting Performance Problems

May 10, 2019 Category: Performance Issues, Documentation

The importance of Ohio employers documenting their employees performance issues cannot be overstated. Too many employers rely on employment at will, and thats a dangerous position to take because the cost of turnover is so high. If an Employee Doesnt Know That Something is Wrong, They Cant Fix It If your employees dont realize that their performance is not up to standards or that certain behavior is bad, then they wont know to correct that issue. As an employer, you want to communicate that you want to better the employee and hopefully not have to terminate that employee in the cost of turnover so high. So they need to know that somethings wrong. No One Likes to be in Trouble Nobody likes to be in trouble, but they must know that if they are not meeting expectations or failing to comply, it will result in progressive discipline. As an employer, it is your responsibility to communicate and document the issue to allow your employee to understand that their actions, or lack thereof,

April 23, 2019 Category: Employee Handbook

We at Surety HR want to stress the importance of a well-written employee handbook. It helps both the employee and the employer. Some employers have conflicting views on whether or not to have a handbook. However, its in the best interest of both partiesto have a handbook. 8 Reasons to Have an Employee Handbook 1) First of all, it introduces employees to the organizations mission, vision, values, and culture which sets the foundation for how the employees fit in. 2) The second thing it does is that it communicates to the employees what is expected of them; the benchmarks, sets the tone for employees on safety, timekeeping, reporting, and so on. 3) The third thing is that it educates employees on what they can expect from management and leadership which helps eliminate confusion and inconsistencies. 4) A handbook also helps ensure that key company policies are clearly and consistently communicated as no policy is effective if its not practiced. 5) It showcases the benefits of the
