Outsourcing your hr function

Are you thinking of outsourcing your HR function?

The average HR Manager in the UK earns between £40,000 and £50,000 per year. When you add in the cost of National Insurance, Pension etc, that’s a big outlay! However, the need to add high quality HR advice to your organisation grows year on year as legislation gets more complex. So the need is there but the cost of engaging your own team is also high.  For this reason, most organisations don’t engage their first HR employee until they have a workforce of around 80 employees. So what can you do if you can’t justify spending £60,000 on an HR Manager? Engaging with an HR Consultancy may be right for you! Outsourcing your HR function can be a very effective way of accessing high quality HR advice. Best of all, it can be done for a fraction of the price of employing your own team.

Why work with Cornerstone Resources?

The advantage of working with Cornerstone Resources is that not only do we have the knowledge and experience that you need (check out our LinkedIn profiles here for more information on our experience), we are also flexible in our approach. We don’t lock you in to a 3 or 5 year contract like some of the larger HR firms. We also don’t believe that 6 months notice periods are the right thing to have. Our high quality HR advice will make you want to keep on partnering with us, not our onerous contracts.

Our desire is to find an outsourced HR solution that works for you. We will schedule a meeting with you 3 to 4 months into your contract with us to let you how much time you are using. This way you can make an informed decision as to whether you are on the correct Outsourced HR package. So outsourcing your HR function to Cornerstone Resources is something you can do with confidence and in the full knowledge that if you do want to move on, you can do so at your convenience.

What do I get from the outsourced HR packages?

Because you are buying time, you choose what we do. Whether your need is pulling Employee Handbooks together, supporting Recruitment activity or managing Disciplinaries, this is all in the monthly fee. There are no hidden extras, what you see in our outsourced contracts is what you get. If you exceed the hours for that month, you can borrow them from future months. Alternatively, we can quote over and above for specific one off interventions. So not only do you get high quality HR advice but we actually do the work for you. So rather than ending up with a load of actions to complete, you get the work done by experienced HR professionals. That’s why we exist, to take the burden off you. So if that sounds good, call us today to start a conversation about outsourcing your HR function to Cornerstone Resources!

How long does an Outsourced HR package last?

There is no limit on our outsourced HR package contract lengths. As our standard notice period is 3 months, you also aren’t tied in for a prolonged period. We also allow you to roll unused time over from one month to the next. That way, if you don’t use all your HR support in one month, you can use it the following month! So outsourcing your HR provision was never easier or more focused on your needs. Our first engagement with you will be to complete a HR health check of where you currently are against the legal requirements for your organisation. We then provide a report of recommendations of what you need to become totally compliant. From there, it’s up to you! You provide the issues, we will provide the high quality HR advice!

What if I don't want to commit to an outsourced HR package?

That’s absolutely fine! We are happy to provide one off project support that will meet you needs.But remember, our outsourced HR packages have no long tie ins and only a 3 month notice period.

Having just taken over the management of a small company after having worked in the NHS for over 20 years I felt very much out of my depth with no HR department to call on. I was then recommended Cornerstone Resources who have been amazing. I can not speak highly enough of them. Their availability, information, support, patience and advise at just the right level I am so grateful for. I certainly can recommend them to anyone who is looking for HR support
