FARMINGDALE, N.Y., Sept. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Alcott HR (www.alcotthr.com), a leading provider of human resources outsourcing solutions, a Certified Professional Employer Organization (CPEO) and Employer Services Assurance Corporation (ESAC) accredited PEO, has reached its 30th anniversary. Alcott has helped clients through major economic and regulatory upheavals, evolved from a five person operation serving clients in New York to now directly employing over 80 staff from multiple offices who help hundreds of businesses and thousands of employees throughout the United States. Co-founders Louis Basso and Barry Shorten remain in hands-on roles.
"Over the past three decades, there have been many regulatory developments affecting employers, and we have been dedicated to helping our customers stay in compliance, while providing competitive, Fortune 500 level employee benefits for their staff," said Basso. "The constant has been that great customer service never goes out of style. Delivering great client value, delivered by our longstanding, highly qualified staff, and our ability to adapt has helped us reach this milestone and achieve a 95% client retention rate. Alcott HR's rock solid financials have also been a major factor."
Alcott HR has been helping businesses navigate the increasingly more complex regulations including the healthcare reform legislation and other federal, state and local workplace laws and regulations.
"The amount of information needed to support our clients has increased so significantly that our staff is constantly undergoing training regarding the steady rule changes and new technologies we're deploying to keep pace with them," said Shorten.
Basso and Shorten noted the level of specialization now required in the HR field. "Our staff has become much more specialized in labor law, retirement plans, employee benefits, payroll, etc. to help our clients maintain compliance and avoid the repercussions of noncompliance," added Shorten.
Basso continued, "Alcott HR always has had skin in the game. Everything we offer our clients including best practices and benefits are also used for our own internal staff. It's a great way to ensure that our offerings are first class and valued by our clients."
At the forefront of the PEO industry for years, Alcott HR is the oldest sitused PEO in NYS and became one of the nation's first and select few PEOs to earn the voluntary CPEO designation from the IRS and was among the first to become accredited by the independent accrediting agency ESAC.
