The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered intense economic and social disruption and it’s far from over. And our work landscape has changed and will continue to evolve. For businesses, steering through COVID-19 and navigating this new work landscape requires savvy and careful strategizing. More than ever, HR is playing a critical role. And you need the best information you can right now — from managing a newly remote workforce, facilitating furloughs and layoffs, and helping the business leverage provisions of the CARES Act, understanding and tapping into the Paycheck Protection Program.
This is a new normal that can seem like anything but normal, and among many HR practitioners, there’s a very real need for guidance and support. One very effective strategy is HR outsourcing. But it’s not about giving up control. It’s about the value it can bring to the business.
Today I’m bringing Tom Hammond, VP, Corporate Strategy and Product Management at Paychex, to #WorkTrends for this sponsored podcast on the why and the how of outsourcing HR. We’re going to talk about the best strategies for surviving these tough times, and supporting our businesses and our employees through it. In light of COVID-19, we’ll be looking at a range of outsourcing models — such as professional employer organizations (PEOs) and administrative services organizations (ASOs). We want to help our listeners understand how these solutions can support them right now — when we really need them.
