Rooting for Your Company

by Andrew SzczesniakJune 27, 2013 10:54 AM

Last Saturday, I took my daughters down to Nike Park in Parma, Ohio to watch my co-workers play a softball game in the Cleveland Corporate Challenge. GMS played against Bucci’s Restaurant and won their first game, 13-12. (Yay team!) While I’m glad my co-workers won, I was even more impressed with something else I saw.

Bringing HR Sexy Back

by Tim AustinJune 11, 2013 2:58 PM

When you think "sexy," you don’t automatically think "HR."

I’m not talking about the kind of sexiness of the first time I held my wife’s hand. I’m talking about business sexy— what makes a company interesting and what makes an industry intriguing. What gets people excited.

401(k) Testing: What is That About?

by Tom SmithMay 9, 2013 10:14 AM

I receive this question very often, especially at the beginning of each year. The IRS requires any company with a 401(k) plan to conduct annual compliance testing.

The testing is conducted after the plan’s year-end. For most plans, this is 12/31.

Business and Baseball

by Tim AustinApril 29, 2013 3:50 PM

My two older boys, ages 9 and 10, are playing ‘kid pitch’ baseball this year. Believe it or not, when I asked them what position they wanted to play, they both said “Dad, I want to be the pitcher”.

Then we asked each player on the team what position they wanted to play and each and every player said “Pitcher”. On paper this is not strange, as this is the most glorified position in baseball. After all, they make the most money, get the most publicity (when they are good), and seem to have the biggest fan base.

The other coaches and I talked to our 13-man roster about how important every position is on the team and how every position contributes to the overall goal. We teach them that they all have to play together to win.

GMS Women Who Excel

by Tim AustinApril 26, 2013 1:22 PM

Recently, four women from Group Management Services attended the Women Who Excel Seminar in Cleveland, OH.  It was a great networking opportunity as well as a forum to hear leading women talk about how they have made it to the top.  There were panelists from all different industries that discussed topics ranging from the barriers women face in the workforce to the right way to align yourself as a strategic partner. 

Jessica Mischka (Benefits Administration Manger), Catisha Jackson (Benefits Account Manager), Sanja Benic (Human Resources Intern), and Stacey Edelman (VP of Client Services) enjoyed learning how to become a stronger female presence and mentor at GMS. 

Group Management Services is very proud of not only these four women, but proud of all the females that help lead our company and its customers.
