outsource HR functions rather than expand to a larger location to meet the space needs of another department. Furthermore, outsourcing costs are variable and can be reduced when business needs warrant. Efficiency Maintain an efficient and productive workplace is critical. Outsourcing HR functions create greater efficiency within human resources systems. Advanced human resources technology utilized by outsourcing providers help streamline important HR functions, such as payroll, benefit administration and compliance management. Outsourcing helps employers and managers spend less time doing paperwork and more time dedicated to improving the efficiency and efectiveness of the workforce. Employee Development Outsourcing HR functions help businesses manage employee performance and development. Providers implement performance management plans to ensure employees comply with company policies and procedures and successfully meet business goals. Outsourcing firms periodically monitor employee performance and report findings to management. This reduces the workload of managers by minimizing the amount of administrative responsibilities they must focus on. 6. Discuss the functions and scope of industrial relations. Industrial relations is the management of work-related obligations and entitlements between employers and their employees. In Australia, industrial relations laws cover employment issues such as minimum wages, employment standards and pay equity. These laws also cover hours of work and leave entitlements, and protect employees from discrimination and unfair dismissal. 7. Outline the purpose of an employment contract.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
