Case Study: Premier Private College
WCA was engaged to assist a rebrand and implement an efficient and trusted HR/IR function.

What are the benefits of an outsourced HR department?
Some of our clients like the fact that we are independent of staff grievances. Some like that they are able to access different expertise from across our team. Other clients like the continuity across periods of leave and the ability to dial our services up and down to meet their needs, and one of our clients like the fact that they now pay less for a full HR team each year than they used to pay just in annual recruitment agency fees. We believe the benefits are that you can tailor your HR team to your business requirements.

WCA is your HR team and our consultants can be based at your offices, our offices or a blend of both. Our HR consultants will work with your team and systems and act as your branded HR function no matter where they are physically based.

How much does outsourcing HR cost?
WCA works with each client to determine their needs and budget.
When considering the cost of an outsourced solution versus hiring an individual directly, there are several things to consider:
- Total employment cost of an individual (ie leave, worker’s compensation, infrastructure and other insurances etc.)
- The breadth of HR experience from WCA Solutions.
- Continuity of HR delivery and HR resourcing
- HR/ IR risk mitigation.
- Access to best practice, tools, and knowledge.
- Access to WCA’s HR legal advisors if required.
