Why Outsource HR?  

The decision to outsource HR is not one to be taken lightly. Yet, when viewed through the lens of your core functions, the benefits become clear. Outsourcing HR can introduce a new level of efficiency and effectiveness to your operations.  

 

Imagine if you could refocus your energy from tedious administrative tasks to growing your organization. 

 

By delegating HR tasks to experts in the field, you can lighten the administrative load on your in-house team.  

  • Free up your internal team 
  • Cost savings 
  • Access to expertise 

 

Free Up Your Internal Team

Let us at Vested HR do the leg work for you so you can kick back and focus on more important tasks to help grow your business. This shift of focus allows your team to concentrate more on strategic initiatives. The result? Improved employee engagement, reduced turnover, and enhanced efficiency 

  

Cost Savings

 

Hiring a PEO to take care of administrative HR tasks can yield significant cost savings for your in-home health company. We get it, the expenses involved in maintaining an in-house HR team can quickly add up – salaries, benefits, recruitment costs, training, software, and more. That’s why we’re here to help!  

A PEO like Vested HR can offer the same, if not higher, level of expertise at a fraction of the cost. This allows your organization to allocate funds toward improving patient care services.  

  

Access to Expertise  

 

The realm of HR is vast and complex. It’s ever-changing, with constant updates in labor laws, benefits, and other HR-related matters.  

Handing HR tasks to a skilled PEO team can provide your company access to a team of experts who are always on top of these changes. They can provide guidance and advice based on the latest HR best practices, ensuring compliance and reducing the risk of legal issues.  

 

Ultimately, this can lead to a stronger bottom line and a better overall experience for both your employees and patients. 

  

What Can Be Outsourced? 

  

Payroll

 

One HR function that can be outsourced for home healthcare companies is payroll processing. This includes: 

 

  • Calculating employee wages, taxes, and benefits 
  • Issuing paychecks or direct deposits. 

 

It’s true, outsourcing payroll tasks can help ensure accuracy and compliance with tax laws and regulations, giving you peace of mind and freeing up time for you to focus on other tasks.  

  

Employee Benefits

 

You can also outsource and have employee benefits handled for you. This entails overseeing retirement plans, health insurance, and other employee benefits, often called ancillary benefits. A robust benefits program is key to engaging your workforce, so we recommend making this a priority!  

 

Workers’ Compensation Insurance Compliance 

 

Managing workers’ compensation compliance presents one of the major challenges for organizations who provide home healthcare. With workers frequently being exposed to physical and occupational hazards, it is crucial that these companies have proper insurance coverage and adhere to all related regulations. 

 

By partnering with a PEO, home healthcare companies can rely on their expertise to ensure proper classification of employees, accurate calculations of premium rates, and timely payment of premiums. 

  

Furthermore, a PEO like Vested HR can assist with implementing safety programs and training that reduce the risk of workplace accidents and injuries. They can help establish protocols for reporting incidents promptly to insurers and managing claims efficiently.  

 

By effectively navigating the complexities of workers’ compensation systems, PEOs enable companies in the home-health sector to focus on their core mission – delivering high-quality care – without getting bogged down in compliance-related issues.
