Alcott HR Group announced that it has entered into an agreement to provide its comprehensive HR solution to Ciminelli Real Estate Corporation (Williamsville, NY, www.ciminelli.com), a prominent commercial real estate services firm. These services include: payroll and tax administration, employee benefits design and administration, regulatory compliance and value-added employee services provided on behalf of Ciminelli’s 96 employees.
Ciminelli’s growth and expansion prompted the company’s decision to outsource its HR services. Ciminelli’s Human Resources Manager Stephanie Struzik explained that, “Ciminelli has broadened our base of operations from Western and Central New York to include both Eastern and Western Pennsylvania. Given our growth plan, from a Human Resources perspective, it was vital to ensure that our policies, practices, and benefits offerings are not only compliant, but exportable and quality-driven in all geographic areas.”
Prior to entering into a relationship with Alcott, Ciminelli managed all of its HR services in-house and in conjunction with industry professionals and service providers.
“Alcott has relieved us of many of the tactical Human Resources responsibilities to allow the department to focus more on our employees,” added Struzik. As Ciminelli’s HR executive, Struzik cited several other important benefits derived from the Alcott partnership.
“Our partnership has enabled us to consolidate services such as payroll processing, employee training, employee assistance programs, and background checks for all of our offices which has reduced our costs and created efficiencies,” continued Struzik. “Additionally, we were able to streamline our medical benefits options and provide programs with lower copays and deductibles. We are now prepared to provide coverage in new areas as we expand. An additional benefit is the multiple employee discount programs offered through Alcott.”
Unlike many businesses that have misconceptions about PEOs and HR outsourcing, Ciminelli had knowledge of Alcott and its performance on behalf of businesses in the region.
“We were aware of Alcott’s success in the Western New York region supplying quality programs and services,” said Struzik. “Our business relationships with some of Alcott’s long-term clients provided us with the security of knowing the benefits of HR outsourcing with the right provider. Alcott’s industry certification reinforced that the integrity we expect is maintained.”
