Small and medium sized businesses across the USA are using StaffMarket to assess the benefit of hiring a Professional Employer Organization to improve their efficiency and enhance the benefits for their workforce. Every company is unique in their needs and the PEO industry offers a wide range of services to fit their demands.
Some companies are motivated by the significant cost or worker’s compensation insurance which is on the rise in many states. For these clients, PEOs can offer workers’ compensation insurance at a significant cost reduction, with the advantage of assisting in safety programs that help reduce experience mod rates. Others are seeking to ensure regulatory compliance for employment related obligations in hiring and employee management. Some companies main focus is outsourcing non-revenue related tasks (like payroll and employment taxes) to a third party, thus freeing their management staff to focus on business objectives like revenue growth and product quality. Finally many companies need access to quality health insurance and expanded employee benefit programs. Furthermore, the implementation of the PPACA with all of its regulatory reporting demands, fines and penalties and financial impacts creates even more need for companies to partner with a PEO.

This company is a sales group for it's parent's company that manufactures custom metal ceiling panels. They are actually adding some manufacturing EEs but they don't know the proper W/C codes for those employees so I added them in on this RFP as 3066. This is a description of the work they perform (We manufacture metal ceilings using two machines - one bends metal into panels and one perforates metal. The employees control the machine via software and they insert metal sheets onto the machine rollers and remove the finished product from the other side of the machine. The employees also operate a fork lift, work with saws, air compressors, laser cutters, and other common warehouse tools.) You will need to work with underwriting to properly insure the correct code for these EEs. They are currently with a Professional Employer Organization that is providing them with Signa health care coverage, but that program only offers 2 plans and they would like to have more options. They contact did not want to expose their census to me so I've directed her to provide that documentation directly to you, the Professional Employer Organization rep. I do have a copy of their W/C dec attached to this RFP but I have not yet received their LRs. I have also requested the plan coverage summaries, recent invoice and renewal notice for that Signa coverage but I have not yet received those either so make sure you request those on your initial call. Here is a list of the ancillary benefits the company currently provides. • dental (65% paid by the company) • vision (65% paid by the company) • 10k life insurance policy provided by the company • Voluntary STD • Voluntary Supplemental Term Life • MetLife Accident Insurance • MetLife Critical Illness Insurance • Tele-medicine only plans • MetLife Pre-Paid Legal Plan • MetLife Pet Insurance • MetLife Home and Auto Insurance and 401k Please initial contact by email and request time to schedule your initial phone conversation
