What Will Be the Future of Payroll & HR Outsourcing After the Pandemic?

Here are three reasons why businesses will continue to seek payroll and HR outsourcing solutions even after the COVID-19 pandemic
PALO ALTO, Calif. - Sept. 20, 2020 - PRLog -- When COVID-19 hit several months ago, many entrepreneurs found themselves working on the front lines of various finance and employment issues, from furloughing staff members to handling payroll tax changes. Several operational HR and payroll limitations emerged as the result of the pandemic, especially for small- and medium-sized businesses. As a result, many small businesses recognized that their payroll and HR processes needed improvements.

However, since hiring full-time payroll and HR teams who could offer that kind of support wasn't an affordable option for most, many companies partnered with a professional employer organization (PEO) for their payroll, human resource and other needs.

Here are three reasons why businesses will continue to seek payroll and HR outsourcing solutions even after the COVID-19 pandemic:

Cost Savings

Businesses of all sizes have felt the financial burden of the corona virus pandemic. This has led to not only layoffs and furloughs, but also calculated spending cuts in other areas. Going forward, establishing comprehensive payroll procedures and employee leave policies will be essential. However, hiring in-house teams can be time-consuming and expensive. In fact, a study by Paychex shows that reducing expenses is one of the top priorities for businesses right now.

Risk Management

Over the past few months, numerous changes have been made to the laws and regulations at the local, state and federal levels, including several new paid leave policies. A range of policies must be updated or created based on these changes before welcoming employees back to work.


Due to the recent regulatory and legislative changes, a number of obligations have changed, all of which can take a lot of time to update and distribute. For example, if an employee was furloughed, updating the Form I-9 is usually not required. But, if they were terminated and then rehired within three years of updating the last Form I-9, a new Form I-9 or complete Section 3 of their original Form I-9 may need to be updated to indicate the rehire. Also, businesses might have to consider such documents as Form W-4 and direct deposit forms to ensure that the employee is back on the payroll.

The world is looking at a new normal, and business leaders are trying to figure out when and how they'll be able to bring their employees back to the offices, apart from wondering how they can continue to work toward achieving their financial goals.
