Jan 21, 2010, 09:00 ET from Smart-Tek Solutions Inc.

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Smart-Tek Automated Services Inc., a subsidiary of Smart-Tek Solutions Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board : STTN) is rolling out its healthcare initiative for 2010.  Smart-Tek has put together a comprehensive product offering and has chosen Aflac for the electronic administration of employee benefits in a company-wide implementation beginning February 11.

Kelly Mowrey, COO of Smart-Tek, said that the company is offering an affordable benefits package that provides much-needed protection for its employees and their families, with little to no additional impact to the client bottom line.  "After evaluating several enrollment solutions, we made the decision to engage Aflac and its Wingspan Enrollment Solution, as it is designed to offer a streamlined and comprehensive benefits management system which is ideal for enrolling our core benefits and voluntary insurance products.

"Not only will we be able to offer our clients and employees with an extensive benefits package, but will be able to do so in a high tech manner.  All applications will be completed electronically and submitted to our carriers in the same manner.  Employees will be able to enroll using the web self-service module or through a one-on-one consultation with a licensed agent.  Both enrollment venues will provide employees with a benefits statement, which will help them understand the value of the benefits we offer," Mowrey said.
