When the partners at EBC assembled their team, they did so with one purpose in mind, their customer . . . both the employer and employee. Today, EBC has a dynamic business deliverable that provides payroll, employee benefits, HR consulting, time & labor management and a HRIS (Human Resource Information System) – a true Human Capital Management program. The best part is that they can customize the offering to provide a solution that meets the unique needs of each individual client.
"One thing for sure, we are not a one-size-fits-all type of company. We provide a customized solution that meets the unique needs of the client," explains Chris Fiorello, Managing Partner of EBC. "We truly have something different in the marketplace and are excited to assist clients in positively and effectively changing the way in which employees are managed," says Fiorello.
The firm has three divisions – Employee Benefits, Human Resources and Payroll.
The rising costs of healthcare, coupled with ever-changing ACA regulations, have left many businesses frustrated and looking for help. It is important for employers to partner with a consultant that provides a pro-active long-term strategy versus being reactionary to that year’s rate increase.
Funding & Plan Design – Contingent, Minimum Premium, Level Premium, and Captive Self-Funding are options that employers may not be familiar or comfortable with, but the funding of your health plan is something that should be analyzed within the renewal. Plan design is equally important. What are you offering and why? Too many times employers become complacent with their offering. Traditional copay plans, reduced or extended network plans, qualified HSAs, HRAs, POS, PPO, and a variety of ancillary products and carriers makes the analysis extensive, but the consultants at EBC will provide an objective and clear analysis of what is best for your company.
Healthcare Reform & Other Government Changes – For the last few years, Healthcare Reform has been front and center and must be included in any sustainable long-term strategy, but it doesn’t stop there. There are many laws and regulations that companies must abide by and effectively roll-out to employees. EBC is not only ensuring that clients understand the law but also have the tools necessary to plan appropriately for the impending changes.
Communication & Health Advocacy – A concern that is often not discussed is the growing frustration that employees have with their benefit package feeling as though it has gotten more complex, more costly and provides less benefits. EBC takes the time to ensure that employees truly understand their benefits and most importantly assists them as healthcare advocates during the most important time when they themselves or a loved one is going through a medical situation.
Managing the Organization’s HR Needs
If you have employees, you have to manage aspects of Human Resources. EBC has assembled a team of certified HR professionals that can assist clients with virtually any HR function. Whether a business needs a little HR help or a lot, EBC can provide creative, practical, and relevant human resources solutions to an organization. Unlike other models that provide HR assistance through a set standard, EBC customizes the program to meet the actual needs of the business while eliminating unnecessary costs.
As companies know, skilled employees are the foundation of true, long-lasting competitive differentiation. Companies have to attract and retain these key resources, and manage them effectively. EBC is focused on achieving high performance through Human Resources (HR) excellence and creating a culture that meets the needs of their own company culture.
Compliance is a growing need for any business in today’s competitive and legal environment. Compliancy is a focus as audits and fines are on a rise across all government agencies. From improving culture to compliancy, EBC has developed a team to work with companies ensuring that all the HR needs are met.
Extending beyond the basics of just payroll and payroll taxes, EBC is able to include many time-saving and affordable services as a full-service payroll provider. The goal is to take the pain out of payroll by tackling the payroll-related tasks that employers struggle with every day.
Payroll processing through EBC will not only save time and money, but it will ensure that your payroll is done in an accurate, compliant, and efficient manner. EBC provides a comprehensive payroll management solution for employers of small, medium, or large companies.
