Few (if any) have started a staffing firm looking forward to handling back office tasks like payroll, benefits, and HR. However, these core functions are costly if done poorly, have an impact on employee experience, and can distract from revenue-generating activities. Using an HR service provider is a great option, but making the right choice requires thoughtful consideration both internally and externally.

  • Determining your strengths and weaknesses
  • Aligning on internal requirements
  • Assessing providers’ level of service
  • Evaluating providers’ ability to support your business
