Healthcare Business Today: Your essential workers deserve the best care and benefits, too
We all appreciate the essential workers who man our hospitals and clinics and care for us and our loved ones when we are at our most vulnerable. But as G&A Partners Client Success Manager Jacqueline Trujillo says in her June 7, 2021, Healthcare Business Today column, these critical members of our society need to be well cared for, too.
Trujillo recommends employers of healthcare workers consider outsourcing their human resources, benefits, and payroll functions to a professional employer organization (PEO) such as G&A Partners and offers these top three reasons:
- A PEO can save you time and money, and may even help you prevent legal headaches
- A PEO can help you attract and retain your employees
- A PEO can address skills gaps and help you improve your company culture
“When organizations outsource their HR and payroll to a PEO, employers are able to relax a little more, secure in the knowledge that their PEO will alert them to new compliance mandates and will help them navigate sticky personnel issues, pay discrepancies, overtime disputes, and more,” Trujillo says. “The peace of mind that comes from hiring a team of experts cannot be overstated. Especially when that team of HR experts can help manage licensing rules and regulations in any state or for multiple states—a particular headache for most in-house healthcare HR staffs.”
A lot of times employers of healthcare workers are healthcare workers themselves. Time is money but, in this field, it can also mean the difference between life and death, Trujillo says, so “finding a partner that enables the organization to leverage the PEOs expertise to relieve administrative burdens and reduce liability—especially during these challenging times when it’s a struggle just to stay afloat—may be worth investigating.
“At a minimum, hiring a PEO will free up more time for employees to provide essential healthcare to clients,” she adds.
