Outsourcing HR and payroll administration frees your time to make important business decisions. It also ensures that local regulations, collective agreements, and taxation obligations are properly observed.
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) or small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) might not benefit from hiring a specialist HR firm. Your need for HR expertise may be limited to a few days per month. AST's HR services can be easily tailored to suit the needs of your organization. We can help with a single elementary question or wider issues concerning employment.
AST's HR Helpdesk answers industrial relations and HR questions regarding recruitment, employment relationships and training. Managers benefit from support in matters concerning employment and employees.
AST HR experts attend to employer obligations such as occupational healthcare, mandatory and other insurance (pension, accident, unemployment, group life), and contact with The Social Insurance Institution of Finland, Kela (e.g. applications for refund of salary during extended sick-leave etc.). Administration of the life cycle of employment is also part of our service, including administration regarding new employees, employment contracts and termination of employment.
We collect and administer mandatory documentation and the HR Policy manual. We can also maintain the information, updating it when existing legislation is amended or new laws and acts are introduced. AST safeguards employers' compliance with current decisions by ensuring that prevailing laws and regulations are adhered to.
In addition to payroll computing we offer travel expense handling, work time and staff holiday tracking, and annual reports.
Working hours, collective agreements, and contact with insurance companies, trade unions, Kela and other officials are part of our work. AST's regular staff training and implementation of software ugrades ensures we are always up to date. We offer various reporting options, and create new interfaces for HR, tracking and accounting as required.
You can fully or partially outsource your HR and payroll administration to AST, according to your company's needs. Our services are provided by professional, approachable, flexible staff.
