3 Steps to Convince Your Boss You Need a New HR & Payroll Provider

Making a change in how your business does business can be stressful. It can be hard to convince the powers-that-be that it’s the right time to make a move, but the longer you wait, the more productivity is impacted. So if you’re the resident Human Resources expert, how do you convince your boss that it’s time for a new HR and payroll provider?

Here are a few reasons to keep in your back pocket for the next time you’re riding the elevator with your boss and you want to convince her that's it time to find a new HR and payroll solution:

Save Time, Save Money, Look Like a Genius. The reason why “time is money” is such a cliché is because … well, it’s true. HR and payroll compliance is hard work. Not only does it take time, but errors can have serious ramifications. Manually processing paperwork, entering new-hires in the system, suddenly you don’t have time to do anything except catch up. Free up more time and, therefore, more money by partnering with a dedicated HR and payroll software provider who are experts in compliance and taxes. Partnering with an experienced provider will give your organization the time you actually need to focus on your business.

Get It Right the First Time. Finding, hiring and onboarding new employees can cost your business an average of $4,000 per position. A dedicated Human Resources provider that also offers dedicated applicant tracking and onboarding solutions can ensure you won’t be hiring and re-hiring for the same position when a new employee doesn’t work out. With the right partner, you can attract the best applicants, streamline the interview and application process and adopt an onboarding process that gives new employees the tools to succeed in your business’s unique environment.

Let the Experts Be the Experts. When you want honey, hire a beekeeper; when you want efficient and accurate payroll and tax expertise, hire a payroll expert. When benefits regulations shift and change, a superior HR and payroll provider will already be a step ahead of those changes, ready to prepare clients with the most up-to-date solutions to support their business. And the right provider will support your business with consistent points of contact, so when you do have a question or concern you can talk to someone you know -- and who knows you and your business.

Need more than three reasons? Paycor has created an expert guide with tips to help organizations find the right HR and payroll provider.
