PEO Experts, SourceOne Partners, Talk About Trends in 2015: The Wake Up Call Has Sounded


Boca Raton, Florida (PRWEB) January 13, 2015

Businesses of all sizes throughout the United States are preparing for the challenges that come with a new year and new regulations, and one way they’re doing so is by evaluating their options with Professional Employer Organizations (PEO). Important trends affecting businesses include continuing compliance with provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and I-9 compliance to ensure employee eligibility verification. But in addition to these compliance-oriented demands, business owners are also considering less tangible needs like positive employee engagement and recruitment of top employees, and they are finding that PEOs can help answer these needs as well.

Meeting tax and regulatory compliance requirements grows more complex every year. The time and resources that must be devoted to these tasks can hold back small business growth by diverting attention from core business processes. Many businesses outsource non-revenue producing compliance tasks to PEOs. The cost of doing so is, in many cases, considerably less than either hiring full-time HR staff or trying to distribute HR tasks to employees who may or may not be prepared for the level of dedication required to accomplish them. The New Year is a prime opportunity for establishing a solid PEO relationship as a basis for meeting business goals.

“Businesses that handle necessary HR tasks in-house have to be prepared to face the sometimes-considerable risks that accompany taking care of payroll, taxes, ACA compliance, and workers’ compensation, for example,” says Jeff Hecht, President of SourceOne Partners. With regulations constantly in flux, compliance can be an enormous challenge, particularly for the business owner or executive who may not have the training or experience necessary to understand the challenges involved in carrying out vital HR functions.

PEOs are uniquely poised to team up with small businesses to provide critical HR functions, but the benefits can extend even further. Says Hecht, “Many business owners don’t realize that PEOs can help them offer better benefits packages to their employees, including better healthcare coverage options. PEOs are also able to ensure ACA compliance, relieving another serious burden for many small business owners.” In a PEO partnership, the PEO becomes the “Employer of Record” while the client business is the “Worksite Employer.” PEO clients lose no control over day-to-day operations and important functions like staff selection, while gaining the security that comes from knowing regulatory requirement compliance is taken care of.

SourceOne Partners, with offices in New Jersey and Florida, is qualified to work with small businesses in all 50 states, helping them understand and evaluate their PEO options, with cost-benefit analyses and consulting on the important decision of which PEO to work with. Shopping both the PEO and traditional services market, SourceOne Partners works with experts in health insurance / ACA, workers’ compensation, retirement plans, worksite benefits, and payroll, developing custom plans to meet unique client needs.

About SourceOne Partners

SourceOne Partners is a leading provider of PEO and payroll services in South Florida, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. The services SourceOne Partners provides help companies reduce HR costs, minimize employer risk and liability, and relieve the administrative burdens of HR and payroll.

Access To Care: WWAV & LSU Health Sciences

The human papilloma virus (HPV) is the leading cause of cervical cancer; in the United States alone, the incidence of an HPV infection in women between the ages of 18-22 is 50%. These statistics by themselves are enough to cause alarm. Now consider the factors involved in a women going to an OB/GYN clinic to be screened for the virus; consider the need to take off work, how she will commute to tImagehe clinic, the amount of waiting involved once she’s finally there, and what about child care? For these reasons, Women With A Vision has paired with LSU Health Sciences in a study focusing on the usability of a home-test kit for HPV.

Outreach worker Zina Mitchell has lead the group in recruiting community participation as well as teaching current WWAV interns the most effective way of reaching individuals. The neighborhoods specified by the study are Treme, Holly Grove, and Central City. Beginning outreach during the first week in October, we have distributed over 120 flyers to individuals in grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, and to those walking down sidewalks. General reactions have been inquisitive and friendly, asking more about what we’re doing and who we are. Conversations have allowed us to explain further the reason women need to be screened for HPV, regardless if they choose to do so through this study opportunity.

Recruiting participants has proved to be an interesting endeavor; learning how best to explain the risks involved in contracting HPV as well as why learning one’s own status could lead to preventing cervical cancer. The procedure of the study randomly assigns individuals to either a clinic visit or to use a home-testing kit. Among other forms required by the Institutional Review Board (IRB), we then present the individual with a questionnaire to verify eligibility (only those between the ages of 21-64 qualify) and a pre-test that will later be compared to the post-test. For those who are assigned to the clinic, WWAV provides either bus or street car tokens or a gas card—depending on the need of the client—and then we schedule an appointment.

For those assigned to the home-testing kit, the process is a bit more involved. We have pre-made kits for the women, including instructions on how to do the test. She then inserts the provided tampon for 2 hours, removes it and places it in the given tube and plastic bag, then places the pre-paid box in the mail, destination LSU Health Sciences.

Although we are in the beginning stages of this project, we anticipate a positive response from the communities participating. The mentality behind this study, the convenience and accessibility of testing for HPV at home, explains our involvement and support of the project. The clients that we work and interact with could only benefit from an easy method allowing them to determine their own HPV status when considering the many obstacles involved in preventing them from accessing services at an OB/GYN clinic; money, child care, and transportation being just a few of the deterrents.

Limited access to care especially in the realm of health services is a known reality for the individuals and families we serve. The idea of being able to assess one’s own health status at home opens a world of possibilities and allows for the individual to reclaim his or her own power; the power of autonomy. Removing stigma as it relates to health care opens the door to myriad opportunities for individuals to protect their own bodies from disease and to manage a life-style that will lead them to a long and happy life. At-home testing for HPV will do just that.

The Personal is Political

It’s been a little over a year since I became involved in Women With A Vision. And as anyone who has ever worked with us knows, that means I’ve been tasked with anything and everything. I’ve created outreach materials, helped clients complete Medicaid applications, provided clean syringes to injection drug users. But of all activities I’ve taken part in during my time at Women With A Vision, our story circles stand out.

Twice a month WWAV hosts story circles—a community-based storytelling session. Our staff, interns and participants gather around in a circle to tell stories, share our lived experiences, and find a collective voice. WWAV’s participants are overwhelmingly low-income women and transgender women of color, a number of whom are involved in the street-based economies. Story circles thus achieve the important task of centering the voices of people who are too often made invisible in our society. They not only engender a sense of community and awareness, but they also promote healing and collective action.

Timid and a little quirky, afraid that I wouldn’t gain the acceptance of our participants, I did very little talking in the first few story circles. I had come to WWAV as a student intern from University of New Orleans. And while my coursework in the sociology of gender had impassioned me, serving as the impetus for my politicization as a young Latina woman living in the South, there was also a gap between what I had been taught in the classroom and what I was now learning in our story circles. My courses at school had given me a theoretical understanding of the ways in which systems of race, gender, class, and sexuality intersect to create social inequality. But story circles lent a face and a voice to the people who live under the pressure of those inequalities. I admire our participants’ resilience, and I admire the generosity with which they shared their lives with me.

Eventually, my timidity washed away, allowing me reciprocate the same generosity our participants had shown me in sharing their stories. As I developed relationships with our participants, they came to call me ‘White Chocolate.’ Not only is this a delicious nickname, but I felt it validated my place in WWAV. That nickname is a reminder of my personal trajectory at WWAV—from a reserved to a more confident person with a deep social justice commitment.

Perhaps that’s why I so vividly remember my incredulous reaction when I got Deon’s message that “our office was torched.” Torched? As a non-native English speaker, I had initially thought: perhaps there is another definition of the word “torched” that eludes me. Because “torched” certainly couldn’t mean that our office had been set on fire. My denial was quickly punctured as our photos and videos began to circulate on the web.

In the month since fire, all of us have experienced many ups and downs. WWAV has not only been a safe haven, but it has also been a place of growth for all us. The violence of this attack is an ever-present reminder that the personal is indeed political. As we continue our rebuilding process, this awareness is what keeps all of us going. Someone tried to stamp us out by destroying the materials we use to do our work, but our work—our vision—goes so much deeper than that. It is inside all of us who are part of the WWAV family. That’s something that can’t be burned down.
