In 2014, small group health insurance premiums in Ohio are expected to increase by 71%. As a business owner, you know that healthcare is already a significant expense, and increases like this are likely keeping you awake at night, wondering how you can keep employees insured AND pay the bills.
Fortunately, you can start sleeping better again, because Group Management Services has a completely unique and customizable solution that enables you to provide the coverage your group needs while limiting your expenses and business risks associated with healthcare coverage.
To give you an idea about how GMS can do this, let’s first take a look at how small and medium-sized businesses are covered today: fully insured plans.
HR functions can take a lot of time. For small business owners, that time could be better used in better ways—like growing your business and making more sales.
GMS is committed to saving you time and money on your HR functions, including Payroll, Benefits, Risk Management, and more. In support of this commitment, we’re happy to announce that we have just launched a brand new educational resources section on our website.
If you've browsed through our site, you've probably seen our tagline: "Employee Management Made Simpler. Safer. Stronger."
As a Professional Employer Organization (PEO), we live up to this goal by removing your burden of keeping up with ever-changing HR regulations. We centralize HR functions for owners and employees with our HR Pyramid business software (simpler). We educate our customers on how new laws will impact their business. We provide high-quality customer support. And in the end, our clients spend less time worrying about whether they are implementing compliant HR practices (safer) and more time growing their bottom line (stronger).
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.
GMS is proud to have received a 2013 Leading EDGE Award for Value Creation in Northeast Ohio.
GMS is thrilled to announce that Stacey Edelman is a 2013 Ohio Glass Ceiling Award winner!
What if I told you that you can accomplish all of your HR goals?
You can. You just need to form a few good habits.
Check out my guest blog post on Easy Small Business HR. In it, I explore the ways to make success a habit. Your HR successes help you -- and your business -- succeed.
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.
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.
