How Much Time are You Wasting Reinventing “Wheels”?

As a business owner, executive or manager, do you ever wonder how much time you waste on projects that could either a) be outsourced less expensively and/or b) have already been done by someone else and would therefore be available to you if you just took some time to look for them?

Many times, companies needlessly spend hundreds and thousands of dollars (and hours) working on items like policy and procedure writing and employee handbook creation.  They start from scratch, toiling away.  While that’s laudable on one level, it’s simply not profitable.  In fact, it’s akin to going to the computer store, buying the necessary parts to create a PC, building the computer by hand, writing your own software for it, and then FINALLY getting down to work!

In this day and age, you can’t afford to re-create something that’s already easily available to you.  Instead, it’s highly recommended that you choose an experienced vendor or series of vendors for your HR needs and allow yourself to spend time doing what you do best!
