Human Resources Outsourcing Case Study
Daily Operations and Compliance
Business Type: Real Estate Firm
Client Since: 2010
As a firm that deals with various areas of real estate including developing, leasing, managing and selling, our client is a part of a joint venture of three firms. Together one area they represent is that of failing commercial entities. Finding locations such as small hotels, our clients’ firm steps in, purchases the property and brings the once problem hotel back to a level that can eventually attract buyers.
Given that our client is dealing with often large mergers and acquisitions, being able to handle the day to day operational tasks such as Human Resources, payroll, employee relations and benefits often proves to not be a manageable task. The firm identified that outsourcing this area made strong fiscal sense allowing them to focus on the other areas required to bring the properties back to sellable conditions.
During the bid process for a mid-sized hotel in Colorado, the firm built in the costs of outsourcing Human Resources within their funding requirements and retained StaffScapes to take over the implementation of payroll as well as the guidance of Human Resource review, updates and changes.
“Having StaffScapes on board to help clean up the HR practices made for a perfect partnership with us. We can focus on the fiscal areas of our property acquisitions but can at the same time be confident that we are compliant and that what needs to be done is being done.” said Hal, one of the partners for the firm.
In just the first few months of the partnership, StaffScapes was able to streamline the new hire process, educate the management on appropriate interactions with employees, and began the process of personalizing the new policies and procedures and handbook for the hotel.
