Global Human Resource Outsourcing Market Size – Industry Trends & Forecast Report 2027
The Global Human Resource Outsourcing Market is growing with a CAGR of 6.18% and touched USD 102.25 Billion in 2020. The market is expected to reach USD 153.67 billion by 2027. Human Resource Outsourcing is a predetermined agreement between an employer and an external third-party provider in which the employer transfers the responsibility of HR functions to the external providers. This could be specific to any particular function or outsourcing the entire HR functions. As HR professionals search for ways to spend less time and money on transactions and administration and concentrate on more organized tasks, outsourcing has become increasingly relevant. This time and resource-saving translate into financial savings for the company. Many businesses retain talent acquisition, hiring, and succession planning in-house while outsourcing welfare administration, payroll, and other predictable activities to third-party vendors. This saving of time and resources also interprets savings for the business.

Global Human Resource Outsourcing Market Forecast and Trends
Ability to focus on core expertise
Considering the diverse functions that HR management is responsible for, it is easy to imagine all of the paperwork and administrative tasks that go along with performing those HR functions internally.These tasks can be highly time-consuming for the HR staff. Outsourcing certain HR duties free up precious time for internal HR professionals, thus, enabling them to concentrate on more critical issues.
High cost related to HR Management
The cost of HR management can get pretty high considering all the activities that a traditional HR department is responsible for. This is a problem, particularly for those organizations that do not want their HR to be in charge of all HR functions, such as recruiting, selection, payroll, compliance, and training. If, on the other hand, a company plans to recruit a large team in the same department, it must be responsible for not only the employees' wages but also for perks, taxes, and other company benefits. Since the HR department does not directly produce income for the business, maintaining in-house HR requires a substantial allocation of capital.
Challenge in choosing the right agency
Though there are several benefits of outsourcing HR-related activities, there are some limitations too. One of the significant issues in the HRO process is determining which HR functions should be outsourced and which firm should be chosen to outsource. This is one of the most significant challenges because it may unfavorably affect a company’s performance if selected wrongly. Before outsourcing any in-house HR-related activity to an outside agency, one needs to be sure about the benefits and losses of outsourcing it.
Impact of COVID-19 in the industry
