Human Resources Outsourcing Essentials

Essentially a contractual agreement between your business and a third-party human resources service provider, HR outsourcing services can take many different shapes, ranging in scope from hiring out a single function to assembling full-scale external capabilities.

From small businesses looking for simple HR services, like payroll processing or administration, to enterprise-level companies interested in advanced HR outsourcing beyond the scope of what can be managed by your in-house HR department, Higginbotham can do it all. 

Our HR services team designs tailored human resources and risk management solutions to fit your business needs across the board.

HR Consulting Services

For companies looking to outsource human resources, Higginbotham’s HR programs enable you to select from an extensive menu of a-la-carte outsourced HR functions. From enterprise organizations that just need an extra hand with staffing to small businesses interested in exploring full-scale human resources outsourcing, we can fulfill your needs.



Higginbotham can help your business with all facets of the recruiting process, including:

  • Reviewing and Placing Job Postings
  • Screening Applications and Resumes
  • Performing Employment Verifications
  • Preparing Offer Letters

If your HR department lacks the experience or bandwidth to properly recruit and screen employees, we’re here to assist. 

Employee Relations

Staying on top of relations with employees is one of the best ways to maximize your business’s chances of long-term success. With that considered, our human resource professionals can help educate and advise your in-house HR team on key human resource functions, such as corrective action (written and verbal), performance improvement plans and termination protocols. 

Hiring, Onboarding and Offboarding

Our team of seasoned HR professionals can help develop job descriptions and design new hire orientation protocols. We can also review the onboarding and offboarding processes your business currently has in-place, recommending improvements as needed. 

HR Document Audits

If your business needs help auditing personnel files or I-9s for employees, our outsourced HR team can assist on any level of involvement you need.

Additional Human Resources Outsourcing Services

Your organization is not the same as the business down the street. That’s why we offer a wide range of a-la-carte services to help satisfy your unique needs. While we recommend designing your HR service plan with the help of a tenured professional, here are some options you may want to consider.

Electronic Employee Onboarding

If your human resources team needs assistance with conducting background checks and arranging drug screens, Higginbotham’s HR services team is at your service. 

We can also handle HR tasks like reviewing new hire documents and working directly with employees to help ensure proper completion of paperwork and benefits election.*

Employee Data Entry and Maintenance


Properly managing data on employees is critical for effective administration and risk management and should not be overlooked. 

As a business owner, entering and managing employee data may be pretty low on your list of priorities. You have many competing priorities that may get in the way of keeping up with crucial HR tasks like employee data management, but keeping employees’ information up-to-date is a crucial part of long-term strategy for almost every company.

Specialized Training

If your business needs help with training your employees, our human resources team can step in. 

As part of our HR outsourcing service menu, we can customize training presentations for your leadership team or employees on a variety of topics, including, but not limited to:

  • Employment Law
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Performance Management
  • Discrimination
  • Interviewing
  • Soft Skills

From help polishing what you already have in place to full-scale human resources outsourcing, the veteran team of HR professionals at Higginbotham can help your company serve up training programs.

Exit Interviews


If your human resources employees lack the time or experience to conduct exit interviews properly, we offer exit interview assistance to help support your company. 

Whether you need us to create, review and update exit interview forms and protocols or prefer one of our human resource specialists to assist directly via email or phone, working with Higginbotham brings these crucial HR functions to your fingertips.

Business Process Outsourcing (BPO)


Even if your company only needs help with a single business task, Higginbotham’s HR outsourcing team can help you get it done.



Find Out What Higginbotham HR Services Can Do for Your Business

If you’re interested in HR outsourcing, but aren’t sure you have the budget to support contracting a full-time human resource professional, Higginbotham’s approach may be a perfect fit for your business. 

From payroll to benefits administration, reporting and other crucial HR functions, Higginbotham HR consultants are here to help.

Software as a Service (SaaS) HR Outsourcing

While outsourcing HR can be a great way to better serve your employees and get your business up to speed with current employment regulations, we understand some companies simply don’t have the budget to hire an HR consultant.

Fortunately, Higginbotham offers several outsourced HR services as software (SaaS).

With our HR team in your corner, you can rest easy knowing your critical human resource functions are taken care of.

Some of our available SaaS include:

  • Payroll Services
  • HR Task Automation
  • Benefit Deductions
  • Performance Management

The Value of Single Source HR Outsourcing

At Higginbotham, we understand working with outside service providers can be overwhelming. From vetting HR outsourcing companies to comparing bids and making a decision, many small business owners and executive leaders simply don’t have enough time in their day to tackle HR outsourcing alone.

That’s why we offer the same single source solution for outsourcing human resources that we offer our business insurance, employee benefits and personal insurance clients.

With our HR team in your corner, you can rest easy knowing you’re working with a team of seasoned subject matter specialists who will rest at nothing to exceed your expectations every step of the way.

Your HR questions answered.

Whether you need help educating your internal stakeholders or just want to learn more about human resources before making a decision, the following sections were written with you in mind.


The Five Main Areas of HR

What was once a relatively narrow discipline focused on hiring, managing and terminating employees has since evolved into a complex, multi-faceted and critical piece of modern business strategy.

The human resources function typically oversees these five core business functions:



Safety and Health Policy Creation and Enforcement

Talent Development

Compensation Package Design

Employee and Labor Relations

Human Resource Responsibilities

An HR leader’s role is both complicated and mission critical.

Understandably, skilled HR professionals tend to command a premium salary when compared to other employees. 

With competent HR staff commanding increasingly higher salaries and the regulatory landscape creating unprecedented complexity in the field, maintaining adequate internal HR expertise is becoming more difficult and less cost-effective.

With this considered, the value of HR outsourcing for small businesses and other companies looking to improve their HR capabilities is undeniable.

Human resource professionals can expect to help their company with:

  • Data Analysis
  • Financial Projections
  • Internal Process Design and Auditing
  • Development and Maintenance of HR Information Systems (HRIS)
  • Employee Life Cycle (Recruitment through Departure)
  • Benefits Administration
  • Regulatory Compliance


Is HR administration outsourcing the right fit for my organization?

Whether you run a growing small business or an enterprise organization looking to improve human resource capabilities without adding employees, HR outsourcing can be an attractive solution for many reasons.

Perhaps the most intriguing of these reasons is ROI. 

While your situation and use case is unique, most organizations turn to HR outsourcing to better enable their in-house HR team to focus on more strategic activities. 


Administrative HR Functions

For many companies, the easiest HR tasks to outsource are usually more administrative or transactional in nature.

Some examples of administrative human resource functions include:


Payroll Administration

Benefits Enrollment

Regulatory Compliance

Human Resource Strategy Consulting

Just because many companies find the best ROI in outsourcing administrative HR responsibilities doesn’t mean your business wouldn’t benefit from outsourcing more strategic HR needs.

Perhaps your in-house HR team is more comfortable handling administrative human resource functions and would prefer support in HR business strategy development. 

It’s crucial to consider your current capacity and bandwidth before outsourcing HR services. If you aren’t sure, our human resources consulting team will help answer your questions. 

Regardless of whether you need administrative or strategic support, Higginbotham HR services is in your corner.


In determining whether HR outsourcing is a good fit for your company, ask these questions:

  • Will the addition of outsourced HR talent disrupt my in-house HR team and its current operation?
  • Does my company have sufficient HR management capacity to manage outsourcing of HR functions?
  • Are my company values clearly established? Do we have a mission statement?
  • Do we have the budget available to pay for our desired outsourced HR solution(s)?
  • Does our specific use case merit human resources outsourcing?
