|The answer, obviously, is yes.
HR teams perform many valuable functions without which organisations, particularly larger ones, would be constantly struggling with unresolved people problems.
Some say that the traditional HR department, which claims dominion over everything from hiring and firing to maintaining workplace diversity, stifles innovation and bogs down businesses with inefficient policies and time-consuming processes.
Some companies have done away with HR departments, relying on managers to do everything that has to be done in respect of those within their teams, or have merged them with other functions such as marketing or finance.
This can be an added pressure to the managers in these areas, who can cope with the everyday running of the department, but will struggle, and possibly put their business in line for a claim, when serious difficulties with staff arise.
Many companies are now insuring against tribunal claims, but hiring in a HR company and having them support the employers and staff, will ensure that cases don’t reach the need for a tribunal.
