Most businesses know that they have the option to outsource recruitment and employee benefits administration. Many find that it is a good option to do so. Companies may not know, however, that there are more human resources administration services that can be outsourced are than these two popular choices.

Forbes reports that companies are moving outsourcing into other human resources functions. One of these is employee retention, including communicating with employees and ensuring that they understand their benefits and jobs. This service even extends to rewarding workers for excellent performance.

Outsourcing human resources can make a workplace more efficient. Tasks such as updating conduct manuals, approving vacation time, and tracking employee performance are time-consuming. Furthermore, an independent human resources provider can be seen by workers as an impartial third party, which is an asset when sensitive subjects must be broached between a firm's management and employees, according to Entrepreneur magazine.

In both traditionally outsourced human resources back office functions and newer realms like employee retention, an independent human resources administration service can be a valuable addition to a company's business practices.
