FAQs are a helpful resource for providing answers to common questions you may have about our services or DreamStoneHR.  

General Questions

What is the advantage of outsourcing over hiring an internal HR resource?

Choosing to outsource your HR needs to DreamStoneHR rather than hiring an in-house HR member is a commercially savvy decision for several reasons.

As a valued DreamStoneHR client, you get direct access to our wealth of Intellectual Property (IP) and internal resources that we’ve meticulously crafted over the years. This translates to rapid deployment of high-quality content, which might otherwise take an in-house HR professional months to produce.

Moreover, our team is connected with subject matter experts across various business aspects. This network empowers us to provide you with tailored advice on specific technical matters, all at no extra cost. By partnering with DreamStoneHR, you’re essentially gaining an entire team of HR specialists and a vast array of resources to drive your business success.

Is working with DreamStoneHR going to be expensive?

Absolutely not. We believe in flexible, client-focused solutions at DreamStoneHR. You have the freedom to choose the level of support you need and to adjust our services in tandem with your evolving business requirements.

In essence, this approach empowers you to effectively manage your costs without the need for a permanent employee resource, which might end up underutilised. Our model ensures you only invest in the services you need when you need them.

Will we be working with the same team members?

Indeed, we do. At DreamStoneHR, we recognise the importance of strong relationships in building partnerships.

You’ll have the same dedicated representatives from our team working closely with your business, ensuring continuity and a deep understanding of your unique needs.

Based on your specific requirements, we may bring in additional resources from our team to work alongside you. However, rest assured that your lead contact at DreamStoneHR will always oversee any work being done. This individual will maintain consistent communication with you, ensuring a seamless service experience, no matter how your needs might evolve.

 

Will we be tied into a long contract term?

We offer you the flexibility to use our services either on an on-demand basis or on a retained basis. Ultimately, our goal is to provide a service model that not only aligns with your business needs but also has the adaptability to grow and evolve along with your business. Your success is our priority.

What sets DreamStoneHR apart from other HR consulting firms?

Our approach is defined by its flexibility and personalisation. We understand that every business has unique needs and we strive to provide solutions that are specifically tailored to meet those needs. Additionally, our team boasts a wealth of experience and is driven by the fundamental belief that an engaged workforce is a company’s strongest asset.

What are the benefits of using an external HR partner like DreamStoneHR?

By partnering with DreamStoneHR, you gain access to extensive HR expertise without the need for a full-time, in-house HR department. This can be a more cost-effective solution, particularly for small and medium-sized businesses. It also allows you to focus more on your core business functions while we handle your HR needs.

What does the transition process look like when we decide to work with DreamStoneHR?

Our onboarding process is designed to be as smooth and hassle-free as possible. We start with a comprehensive review of your current HR practices, then work closely with you to develop a tailored People Strategy. Our team will be there to support you every step of the way. 

How can DreamStoneHR help us develop a strong company culture?

We believe a strong company culture is key to employee engagement and business success. Our team can help you identify your core values, then create and implement strategies to embed these values into your everyday operations.
