Benefits administration is challenging. Plan setup, enrollment, HIPAA and COBRA compliance are just a few of the considerations that employers must navigate to provide employees with a high quality benefits experience while also avoiding costly penalties for mistakes. Hiring a dedicated benefits staff can be expensive and burden an already busy HR department with additional duties that can lead to a wide variety of problems.
Ensuring that you deliver a quality benefits plan that saves money, makes employees happy, and keeps you in compliance with State and Federal regulations is crucial. Outsourcing benefits administration with Kona HR can deliver peace of mind and a better benefits experience for employers and employees alike.
