Emerald Coast Resources (ECR) provides cost-effective Human Resource services to small and mid-sized businesses. These services typically include Human Resource systems that manage employee benefits, payroll, workers’ compensation, and HR compliance. By entering into a relationship with ECR, your company can outsource some of their HR related services, allowing you to focus on your bottom line.
ECR and your company become co-employers for the purpose of allocating employment responsibilities and HR tasks. ECR assumes responsibilities related to HR compliance, benefits, payroll, while you retain all other responsibilities and control over your employees. This arrangement benefits your employees by gaining access to competitive health insurance and other benefits that a small or mid-sized business may not be able to obtain on its own.
As soon as a small business hires its first employee, it becomes subject to numerous federal, state, and local employment laws and regulations. However, most small businesses don’t have the resources or manpower needed to handle HR compliance issues, risk management, benefits management, payroll processing, and workers’ comp management. By entering into a relationship with ECR a client gains access to an entire team of HR professionals, at a cost-effective price. ECR can serve as a partner to your company’s existing HR department or it can serve as your HR Manager.
Through our partner BOR-Go, ECR can provide your company with technology and resources to handle employee matters including new-hire onboarding and record keeping; time and attendance tracking; PTO (Paid Time Off) tracking and other critical functions. These technological innovations greatly improve efficiency in processing HR tasks and payroll processing, enabling you to focus on your core competencies and your bottom line. This is all offered on BOR-Go, a robust cloud-based HRIS Software.
ECR had amassed considerable negotiating clout by pooling smaller businesses and is thus able to offer health, dental, life insurance, and other employee benefits to you and your employees at a lower cost.
It isn’t easy to keep up with the ever-changing federal, state, and local employment laws and regulations… especially for small businesses that lack full-time HR professionals or resources. ECR can provide critical assistance to your company while you are in your early growth stage. This assistance provides you with peace of mind knowing you are complying with the various employment laws and are therefore a lot less likely to be sued by disgruntled employees or penalized by governmental agencies for workplace deficiencies. ECR provides expertise and support during all stages of the employment cycle from interviewing and on-boarding to discipline and termination. With a just a quick and simple questionnaire, ECR is able to provide you with a customized employee handbook to distribute to each employee.
