If you employ under 50 people, you may have found that offering employee health benefits to be cumbersome both in implementation and in cost. This does not have to be the case. The Wharton & Power Insurance Team has been helping local mid-sized employers offer high-quality health benefits for over 30 years. The health insurance industry has been all over the place since the passage of the Affordable Care Act. We have been here through it all, advising our clients on the latest program iterations. After all that turmoil, two helpful programs for mid-sized employers have risen to the top.
Professional Employer Organizations, or PEOs, are a great option for businesses looking for employee health benefits, as well as payroll and human resources services. W&P works with local PEO provider, Worksmart Systems, who has been serving the Indiana business community for over 22 years.
PEOs use a co-employment model that allows mid-size businesses to tap into employee benefit packages typically offered by large organizations. Their payroll and HR services go hand-in-hand with their health insurance program and have surfaced as immensely important during the COVID pandemic. Worksmart helped many of their co-employers completely shift their business model in a matter of days, as well as with the PPP application process. While we appear to be emerging from this difficult time, having a partner in managing your employees can lessen a burden often shouldered solely by the mid-sized business owner or one human resources manager.
Employee health benefits from large providers are still a viable option for some organizations. If we find the right policy for your business, the W&P Team manages the entire process. Employee group informational sessions, individual employee meetings, open enrollment reminders and management, as well as continued employer support are all part of our services.
We know the options and we help you find the right one for your employees and your bottom line. We support what we offer, so you are not left to manage the programs on your own. Finally, we have been serving the Greater Indianapolis community for over 30 years, and we are here to stay. We will be your partner in attracting and retaining high-quality employees for years to come.
