Why You Need Abel
Abel HR’s value proposition focuses on the “people side” of your business. We free up time for you to concentrate on growing your business. See how Abel can benefit your business today.
Abel has the necessary expertise in the management of human resources administration, payroll and payroll taxes, workers’ compensation insurance, and employee benefits because it’s our only business. Our clients eliminate the risk of costly errors, fines, and penalties because Abel assumes the responsibility for the compliance issues that can cause them. We are “Abel” to generate cost savings for our clients by using our management experience, excellent ratings, and good standing to reduce certain specific employer costs.
At Abel, our mission is to provide the very best of what a PEO relationship can offer at the best possible price to an ever expanding base of clients and leased employees. We will supply these services to our clients and our leased employees with the highest regard for the personal service that is expected from a family-owned and operated business.
We believe that in order to do justice to the employer relationship, all employer responsibilities must be assumed completely by Abel without the need for the Client to “read the fine print” of our service agreement. When exceptional issues occur, they will be handled with the clients’ and the employees’ best interests in mind.
We are not a company focused on selling insurance or financial services such as payroll and/or retirement planning. We are a firm that provides Comprehensive Human Resources Management that includes many of the benefits larger, more progressive companies use to their advantage.
Abel’s services are much more comprehensive than a payroll service provider. Abel not only administers your payroll but has numerous specialists managing your workers’ compensation, unemployment and benefit programs, as well as handling regulatory compliance, filing and record keeping, and human resources.
Abel was founded by its President, James W. Bell Sr. in 1992. We offer the highest level of service available in the market today to hundreds of businesses and thousands of employees in varying industries across the nation.
No. In a co-employment relationship, you do not relinquish control of your employees. What you are giving up are the countless back-office administrative and human resource tasks and headaches involved in having employees on your payroll. Abel is an off-site human resources consultant group that serves as your administrative employer only. You remain the on-site employer, in charge of everyday operational decisions that affect your company’s bottom line.
Once employees understand that they will be receiving better employee benefits, they readily accept the new relationship. For our clients, increased employee benefits have resulted in higher morale and decreased turnover — another benefit to businesses contracting with a professional employer organization.
Extensive Management Experience in All Aspects of the Employer-Employee Relationship:
The employees of Abel are part of a large corporation that is constantly growing. Our size and our growth enable us to provide our employees with an ever-increasing host of benefits. Abel’s employee benefits package is so comprehensive that it allows our clients to compete with major corporations in attracting and retaining the highest quality employees.
As an employer of thousands, we enjoy greater economies of scale when purchasing employee benefits. This not only applies to employee medical benefits (i.e. health and dental insurances) and financial benefits — i.e. 401(k) and Section 125 –but also to workers’ compensation rates. We often can negotiate better workers’ compensation rates because our claims experience is spread over a much larger number of employees.
Medical Insurance – Abel offers various medical insurance plans to full-time, eligible employees.Abel is Affordable Care Act (ACA) Compliant.
Dental – Realizing that all dentists and all dental care needs cannot be covered under one plan design, Abel offers several optional programs for dental care.
Vision – At a time when vision care is being watered down to a small benefit offered in conjunction with medical plans, a separate vision care plan is becoming a necessity.
Prescription Drug – Abel’s prescription drug benefit provider’s participating pharmacy network is nationwide in scope and includes both independent pharmacies and chain stores. Over 95% of all pharmacies will accept our current prescription card.
Life – Our Basic Life policy provides Group Term Life with Accidental Death and Dismemberment coverage and is mandatory for all participants in any Abel medical plan or can be elected as a stand-alone policy.
Your employees are covered by Abel’s policy with each client receiving its own individual policy as required by state and federal law, so you have no prepayment of premium, finance charge, deposit, audit and punitive rate responsibilities. We provide loss control, risk management, claims management, year-end audits, employee safety programs, processing of forms, follow-up on claims and litigation, and filing of all notices and certificates of insurance. We will provide updates on new legal requirements in the care of injured workers, as well as provide a managed care program.
Through Abel you have the ability to access the knowledge of all our professionals in one location. This gives you one-stop shopping for all you need to run and/or administer your employees today. Abel simply allows you to focus on profits and sales.
