What Is HR Outsourcing?
HR outsourcing is the practice of hiring a third-party contributor to manage certain aspects of (or the entirety of) your business's human resources department. Some HR outsourcing companies do little more than provide a phone number that employees can call to speak to a representative about concerns. Other HR service providers, like Zen Resources, offer something more akin to a partnership with businesses.
With Zen Resources, HR professionals manage the needs of your team and initiate newcomers while you oversee the aspects of your business that require your personal touch. Our team works to familiarize ourselves with your business to better assist with administrative tasks and fine-tuned HR strategies. With our team working for you, you can rest assured that your human resources department keeps everything running smoothly.
What Can HR Outsourcing Do for My Business?
Some business owners prefer taking a hands-on approach to human resources as a matter of risk management for their company. However, human resources outsourcing saves you time and money while ensuring that your business complies with all current labor laws and guidelines. Our HR professionals keep track of everything, including what overworked business owners might miss.
We provide a wide array of HR services for our clients, including:
We provide employees with management, safety, customer service, and sexual harassment training.
Our team takes over hiring and onboarding duties for new employees.
We manage hourly and salary employee wages, including vacation pay, bonuses, commissions, etc.

Why Shouldn't I Hire My Own Human Resources Team?
While large companies have the time to go through an interview process with HR professionals and the capital to pay them a high wage, small fledgling businesses can find themselves in over their heads and struggling to make profits. Zen Resources provides business owners with HR expertise without the obstacles of time-consuming interview processes and large salaries to pay.
Our team takes the reins for business owners in the HR realm, eliminating their need to worry about:
- Lengthy searches for candidates qualified for vital positions
- Paying expensive costs for recruiters to produce qualified employees
- Creating new motivational performance evaluation methods
- Developing a legally compliant employee handbook to illustrate the company's policies and define future goals.
- Creating job descriptions and updates that meet all state classification guidelines
What Services Can I Outsource to a Third-Party Provider?
Depending on the provider, you can outsource most duties usually handled by an in-house HR team. Zen Resources is a full-service HR provider that can handle every aspect of your business's HR needs or your hand-picked selection of duties.
The HR responsibilities you choose to outsource are entirely up to you with Zen Resources. We'll do all that we can to help you keep your business growing and improving. As your needs change, we'll adapt accordingly.
How Does Human Resources Outsourcing Save My Company Money?
When you use human resource outsourcing, you work with a team that will provide more services at lower costs than an in-house HR staff. Outsourcing HR significantly reduces costs for hiring, onboarding, and training new employees. Human Resources providers like Zen Resources have state-of-the-art software and technology that can be too costly for new small businesses trying to do their own HR.
Some companies use lawyers to write legal documents and employment contracts. However, hiring lawyers to draw up documents and contracts gets pricey quickly, as lawyers charge an hourly rate between $150 to $300 to write contracts. After revisions and edits, a single contract can take four hours or more, resulting in a $1,200 fee for one document.
How Much Does HR Outsourcing Cost?
The cost of a full-service HR provider depends on what the business owner requires. As with most things, with HR outsourcing, the cheaper options are often less effective. Small providers that provide bare-bones services will offer a low monthly rate or price per employee but present little in the way of quality assurance.
