Taking Steps to Prevent Summer Workplace Injuries

by Tom SbertoliJuly 28, 2016 8:00 AM

Summer days make for more than just fun in the sun. Summer weather leads to a spike in outdoor jobs, hotter conditions, and workplace injuries. While these issues are a year-long concern, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the rate of workplace injuries increases during the summer season

More injuries mean more workers’ compensation claims, and more claims mean that your company will have to pay a higher workers’ compensation rate. However, business owners can take steps to help lower workers’ compensation rates by employing loss prevention strategies that can help reduce the risk of accidents in the workplace.

The Benefits of the GMS Mobile App

by Tim AustinJuly 26, 2016 8:00 AM

Accessing all of your benefits information used to be a pain. Even if you had all of your documents and details organized nicely in a folder, you still wouldn’t be able to access it if you were outside of your home or office. That’s why GMS made it possible to have total access to your health plan no matter where you are.

The GMS Mobile Benefits App for the self-insured plan option allows business owners and their employees to see all of their health plan information on their phone. GMS customers can simply download the app and set-up their account and see info on their eligibility, deductibles, claims, and applicable links to their network and other benefits information. Here’s how the GMS Mobile Benefits App saves you from future hassles.

Intern Life at GMS

by Alexis LevyJuly 19, 2016 8:00 AM

You always hear intern horror stories of Randy the errand runner, Carlin the coffee-getter, solitude Sally, bossy Becky, moody Mandy, lazy Larry, and sob story Serena. But not many have heard or met supportive and studious Sara, reliable and radiant Rafael, or ambitious and adaptable Alexis. 

We are the three interns here at GMS. As a PEO, GMS is not like most companies. A PEO… what is that? Not many have heard of a professional employer organization because it’s unique to the business world, special in a sense that it helps small to mid-size businesses save time and money.

How I Went from Pumping Gas to a GMS Internship

by Rafael CalzadaJuly 14, 2016 8:00 AM

I’ve never worked in an office before. For so many summers, all I did was work the typical jobs you’d expect from a kid in high school. Swim clubs, gas stations; my summers were reminiscent of Dante’s life from the 1994 movie Clerks, complete with me saying more than just once or twice, “I’m not even supposed to be here today!”  

I grew up in a small town in central Pennsylvania, but was born in Cleveland. Upon graduation, I took a note from LeBron and decided to come home. I’m currently going into my senior year at Cleveland State, and this summer I decided to change things. I figured it was time to leave the lifeguard stands and gas pumps behind in Smallville and get myself an office internship. That’s how I found GMS.
