GitHub vs self-hosted Git

We currently host Git on our sandbox server where we (2, sometimes 3 people if we hire a temp contractor) collaborate on the code for our website. I'm new in this position of backend web dev, inheriting the position from our long time backend dev who moved on. I *was* the head IT guy but now I'm trying to figure all this out as part of my new job.

Is there a benefit to using GitHub as opposed to just having Git installed on our sandbox server?

We are a development company and purchased Git after running local for a year.  One negative, sometime the Cloud lags in notification and refresh.  Usually only 1 minute.  We do 150 pushes per week and the Cloud works very well.
