Outsourcing could be just what your business needs

Whilst the owners of larger companies can find it more efficient to operate minimal in-house-support functions and simply buy-in specific services as and when they need them.
Because of the expert knowledge needed, some aspects of running a business are a perfect fit for outsourcing. Functions such as legal, HR, accountancy and PR can be handed over to experts, leaving the business owner free to get on with the job of growing their business.
Joshua Davidson, CEO of tech business, Night Zookeeper, said: “We are a small company and we don’t have the legal expertise to get through big complex documents that often come with big deals. Having legal support to read those documents ensures we don’t make any bad deals.”
Besides the more obvious legal support with such as contracts, agreements, dispute resolution and employment tribunals, a good legal firm can also look after an extremely wide range of HR issues such as advising on disciplinary and grievance issues, restructures and redundancies, dealing with absence and performance management. Practical legal support can also include drafting documents such as employment contracts, policies and procedures and letters to employees.
Stacey Pocock, specialist business solicitor at Atherton Godfrey, said: “Particularly in the early days of starting a business there can be a temptation to go it alone, but it makes better business sense to focus on what you do best and outsource the rest. One of the major benefits of outsourcing is that it removes the need to invest time in managing, developing and motivating staff, as you always have a professional on hand.”
