Human Resources Outsourcing Case Study
Business Type: Advertising and Marketing Company
Denver based Advertising & Marketing Company assists Fortune 500 companies with creative options as part of their marketing strategy, especially at events. One aspect of the business involves the design of mascots, cartoon figures and balloons often seen flying high above a storefront or at a stadium football game.
Having used a PEO for several years, the company was forced to make a change in July, 1999 when their provider was bought out by a bigger company who dropped them because they no longer fit their profile. “We had one month to find (a new PEO) and interviewed four different companies. We chose StaffScapes because they answered all of our questions and they met our budgetary needs. Even better, they are local and respond quickly to our needs” said Lonnie, their CEO.
StaffScapes reviewed the needs of the advertising & marketing company and quickly partnered with their management staff to make a seamless transition from the previous provider to StaffScapes.
In addition, StaffScapes continues to manage all of the human resources issues such as payroll, workers’ compensation, safety training and management in the work place, and employee benefits such as flexible spending accounts, medical and dental insurance.
“StaffScapes gave us a better deal on our rates, which was important, but it was the service that really impressed us. Jim and his team really did a great job of showing us what they could do. The staff is awesome because they take the mystery out of benefits and workers’ comp. When we call and leave a message the right person calls back promptly. The service StaffScapes provides is great” said Lonnie.
“We are very satisfied with StaffScapes. They’ve done things like have a safety person come out and speak to our staff and they do presentations explaining the benefits packages and how to best utilize them. They explain everything related to human resources so I don’t have to. It saves me a tremendous amount of time. In addition StaffScapes manages all of our human-resources issues from a legal perspective, which is highly time-consuming. StaffScapes handles everything.” said Lonnie.
