External HR department

Outsourcing in HR – Your external personnel department

In a company, human resource management encompasses a whole range of tasks. These require trained experts who must be well-versed in the current legal regulations and specifications, which concern, for example, the preparation of a payroll, the administration of employees or the keeping of personnel files. This often poses immense challenges for small and medium-sized enterprises in particular, as it permanently ties up capacities that could be used elsewhere and is time-consuming and costly.

What services does the external personnel department include?

As an external personnel department, we take care of the smooth running of all work that arises in connection with personnel management. Our services as an external personnel office range from personnel administration to monthly payroll accounting and the issuing of all relevant documents and certificates. This includes, among other things, the digital personnel file with all important information about the employees. Other services as an external personnel office cover payroll accounting with the recording and maintenance of all payroll-relevant data, a well-founded registration and certification system and the monthly dispatch of the payslips, as well as payment processing and a professional contract management. This contains the preparation of all employment contracts, references and notices of termination, correspondence with authorities and the monitoring of all important deadlines.

We handle all your labour law matters in close cooperation with our legal cooperation partner. Other tasks that we carry out for you as an external personnel office include the administration of absences and holidays, the recording of travel expense, recruiting and the provision of a manager and employee portal with online access for employees and management.

What are the advantages of an external personnel department?

By outsourcing their personnel department, companies are given the opportunity to concentrate entirely on their core business and to focus their own capacities on it. This gives you enormous freedom to develop and implement new ideas and to handle daily business competently. In addition, you can be sure that your personnel matters will be managed professionally and effectively. This does not only provide you with advantages in terms of contemporary personnel management, but also saves you time and money.

The tax and national insurance conditions for carrying out payroll accounting change frequently. This requires regular training of employees in the personnel department. However, this is not necessary for companies that outsource their personnel department, because with our years of experience and extensive expertise in the HR field, we are able to ensure that all HR management tasks are carried out competently and in compliance with the law. Of course, we perform all our activities in coordination with you and your corporate guidelines. This ensures that all tasks are handled according to the individual processes in your company.

What is a digital personnel file?

A digital personnel file is an electronic version of the classic paper personnel file. The only difference to the traditional form is that all content is stored virtually. The content is identical to that of the paper file. In the digital file, employment contracts, staff evaluations, references and application documents are stored and updated in digitalised form. New information, for example when employees have participated in trainings and seminars, is also recorded here.

As your external HR department, we structure these virtual folders according to your individual specifications. This creates a higher degree of flexibility for employers, because changes can be made directly and in an uncomplicated way. In addition, the digital personnel file saves you a lot of space, as important documents no longer have to be stored in paper form, but the storage is moved to the web. Furthermore, it is much easier to quickly retrieve required information, as this only takes a few mouse clicks. As an external personnel office, we carry out all document storage tasks for our customers that arise in the context of personnel data archiving. Here, too, we naturally take into account your requirements regarding the structure of the folder files.

What data protection measures can an external HR office offer?

When storing and managing personal data, effective and reliable data protection is an extremely important factor. With secure data protection, we create optimal comfort for you. For this purpose, we use modern archiving software as well as complex encryption methods to prevent unauthorised access to your employees' sensitive data. Our approach to data security includes the use of anti-virus software on all servers and web-clients, the provision of a server for all clients, the backup of data on tape on a daily basis and a two-tiered back-up system. In addition, we regulate and control all access through a BSI-certified SSL port. This way, you always have the highest level of security with our external personnel department.
