Checklist to Streamline Benefits Administration

When you opt to use the services of a Professional Employer Organization (PEO), there’s no denying benefits administration becomes so much easier for you and everyone at your company.

When a PEO helps manage the workload, it is the opportunity to offload some of the more time-consuming tasks on your plate such as compliance, enrollment and payroll so you can focus on higher-level HR functions, including company culture initiatives and strategic planning.

How many boxes can you check off of all the items that a PEO can take care of to streamline HR administration?

  Save endless hours of frustration comparing plans and sorting through mountains of insurance information at enrollment time.

  Track employees PTO, vacation, FMLA leave and other time off all in one place with full transparency. You can see what employees have left – and they can too – so you no longer have to look through calendars to remember who took what days off when.

  Improve your accuracy with payroll, deductions and any number of other withholdings and receive confirmation from certified accountants that it has been done right – saving you from costly mistakes and legal liability.

  Build in flexibility by collaborating with a team of experts that can advise you on any and all issues that may arise with the benefits administration, including handbooks, job descriptions, policies and procedures.

  Work though employee issues and questions, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant for a complete resolution.

  Reduce reliance on any one HR expert – they no longer need to know it all or DO it all, so they can focus on what’s most important to growing and improving the business.

  Reduce your risk by partnering with a team of experts that are well versed in federal, state and industry compliance and will provide verification that you remain on the right side of the law.

  Help with workers compensation insurance and claims

  Development of employee enrichment programs such as mentoring and training

  Ensuring safety with an assessment by our in-house safety manager who can create a plan for the safest environment possible.

  Automate your employee information system so that all manner of data on any one employee is available to you with just a few keystrokes.

  Want to see trends in your HR? Look at usage patterns? Track employee metrics? Whatever analysis you want to run, we can build it into your system and get you the data you need, from as far back as you need it.

  Allow you to go paperless, or nearly paperless, by keeping all the important stuff online or with us. Not only will it be a huge space saver, say bye-bye bulky file cabinets and endless files, it increases security when everything is password-protected.

  Let employees have more control over their data by giving them access to prior pay stubs, total annual deductions, and any other manner of data that they would traditionally have had to come to you to access.

If you’ve checked off more than a couple of boxes, ask how a PEO can help you be the best human resources professional you can be. Learn more about how to eliminate your human resource headaches with one decision.

  • FMLA: Who, What, When, Where, Why and How?

    As we’ve mentioned before, HR professionals love to use acronyms. One that you might hear getting tossed around a lot is “FMLA.” But what is it? Who can use it and under what circumstances? And how on earth do you go about applying for it? What is FMLA? FMLA stands for the Family and Medical Leave Act. This federal law was passed in 1993 and is designed to allow eligible workers to “take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons,” according to the Department of Labor (DOL). Specifically, the act covers an employee to take up to 12 weeks

  • Analyzing the Dreaded Task of Benefits Shopping

    Each year, you get the notice that it’s time to select your benefits offerings for the year. And each year, you probably put it off until the last possible moment for a variety of reasons: It’s overwhelming, it’s boring, it’s not a priority, and the good ol’ “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!” However, if you don’t shop for benefits, you could be missing out! As a business owner, you might be forgoing some obvious cost savings, or even just a more cost-efficient benefits package. But looking beyond the obvious, you could also be skipping out on an opportunity
