Employment -vs- Outsourcing: Don’t Rush to Hire!

One of the biggest problems that every medium to large business will face is recruitment. Legal firms across the UK do what they can to keep their hands on experienced and knowledgeable Legal Secretaries, but outsourcing is a quick and simple (and cheaper!) solution.

The rush involved on replacing a Legal Secretary within a month’s notice can be an expensive one. It can be a big mistake rushing to hire just to get a ‘bum on a seat’ – instead, choose to relinquish part of the secretarial role and outsource your typing.

The cost of recruitment includes time out for Senior Management to sift through CVs, create introductory packages and much more. Why not find a pay-as-you-go service that could save legal firms up to £90,000 per year on secretarial resource and ensure continuous productivity?

Current stats suggest that 40% of a Secretary’s role is typing. Prevent fixed costs of Secretaries and outsource the typing part of the secretarial role to Accuro. The benefits go further than just the potential savings! During this period of uncertainty, it pays to engage with professional transcribers who understand legal terminology and are sufficiently educated in your sector.

Accuro boast a healthy legal transcriber panel of 400 strong, all of whom have undergone thorough assessment at the recruitment stage. This allows for large volume typing to be undertaken with no change to our guaranteed 24-hour turnaround, and with Accuro being a pay-as-you-go service, you’ll only ever pay for the amount you need!

The important thing to remember is that an ‘if the shoe fits’ approach to recruitment and staffing will not always have the most beneficial results for a business.  A pair of shoes can look good whilst hurting your feet!  If you’re ready to try something new, give our team a call today.
