There are very few things that one can honestly say everyone in the world has in common. One great equalizer applies to all of us: no matter who you are, where you’re from, or what you do, you only get 24 hours per day to do it…just like everybody else.

If we’re all in this same boat, how is it that some people seem to accomplish so much more than others, and so much more quickly? What do these folks have that you don’t?! Sometimes, the answer can be as simple as this: they have a planThey’ve figured out the things they need to do, and then they get them done.

Save Time & Money: A look at the advantages of outsourcing your HR services

November 17, 2017 / by Cheryl Perez posted in Save Time, Save Money, HR Outsourcing, Outsource

When companies choose to outsource their HR services, they create opportunities to focus more intently on issues that matter to employees, says Cheryl Cooper Perez, President and Director of Sales at BIG-HR.
