FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (7/13/09)--Credit Union Employment Resources (CUER) is providing human resources (HR) outsourcing services to help credit unions save money, improve efficiency and enhance services. Susan Looney, CUER vice president, said many companies have found that outsourcing essential HR functions not only reduces costs, but also cuts down on the time required to perform the duties and responsibilities in-house (LoneStar Leaguer

About 53% of all companies outsource some portion of their HR tasks, according to a Culpepper Compensation and Benefits Survey. “It’s not an all or nothing proposition,” Looney said. “While some companies outsource their entire HR department, others outsource only one or more major HR functions. It’s about what makes the most sense for your organization.” Deciding whether or not to outsource, and what functions to outsource, is just the beginning. The next step is selecting the right outsourcing partner, said CUER. CUER’s process begins with an initial assessment of current HR programs, policies and procedures. The assessment helps identify areas of concern or where change may be needed. Then, CUER designs the programs and assists in their implementation. CUER offers assistance with:
* Management coaching, consulting and training; * Employee relations; * HR compliance; * Discipline and terminations; and * Benefits.
Also, CUER offers the development of and updates for:
* Policies and employee handbooks; * Job descriptions; * Procedures; * Compensation and incentive systems; and * Performance management systems.
