PEO: Taking Outsourcing a Step Beyond Pays Off for Small and Mid-Sized Companies
This research paper is based off a recently published report by The Aberdeen Group, which revealed that the top barrier hindering HR's ability to be strategic to business objectives is "too much time spend on day to day tactical activities. This study also found that more than half the companies studied outsource some HR processes without sacrificing employee service or business outcomes.
Further, this study examines data from nearly 170 companies in the small and mid-size segment (up to 250 in headcount) to determine whether working with a professional employer organization (PEO) is a valid alternative to managing HR processes in-house.
This paper acts as a well-qualified resource for those desiring quantitative data to support the validity of how outsourcing key HR functions can produce positive business results.
