There are several challenges when outsourcing administrative tasks in a small agency that has legacy solutions in place and lacks the resources needed to hire new staff or train managed service providers. Integrated software and managed services in federal HR offer a substantial new opportunity. Here are some of the key benefits of such an approach.
Small- and medium-sized agencies frequently lack the budget to hire additional full-time staff but have the same workload as much larger agencies with larger staff to handle them.
Federal HR staffing can be challenging, particularly for small and medium-sized agencies with limited resources. Whether it is a lack of resources to hire new full-time staff for HR administration, a limited hiring pool in your geographic area, or the long time-to-hire in federal agencies, there are often significant challenges when identifying and filling gaps in these roles.
Small federal agencies with as few as 100 employees face unique challenges that other, much larger agencies do not. Because of their size, they often have only one or two HR specialists whose role it is to manage the entirety of the agency’s HR needs.
