Headquartered in Europe with an office in Virginia and 100+ U.S.-based employees operating across 35 states, this company faced increasing complexity managing a distributed workforce while ensuring compliance with each state’s tax and employment laws.
When an international video conferencing company acquired a smaller U.S.-based platform in 2017, the company needed a means of quickly consolidating HR management and ensure compliance with all federal, state, and local employment laws.
The company’s HR/Recruitment Manager discovered ExtensisHR’s straightforward payroll processing and attentive follow-through stood out in dramatic contrast to the oversights, mistakes, and phone tree runaround she had experienced with past HR support providers.
In addition to payroll management, the company also worked with ExtensisHR for benefits renewals, a process they found much more advantageous than when working with previous benefits advisors.
The HR/Recruitment Manager explained, “Unlike other partners I’ve worked with in the past that sent us information a week before renewals were due, the team at ExtensisHR shared options and recommendations about three months before renewal. Before, we never had time to evaluate our options. ExtensisHR did all the legwork for us so far in advance, which put us in a much stronger position to make the best choice for our company.”
ExtensisHR’s powerful HRIS software also protected the company against costly compliance missteps. “Onboarding new hires is simple with ExtensisHR,” explains the HR/Recruitment Manager. “I can add another state with a few clicks and the system automatically guides me through the steps. Every aspect of our onboarding complies with the laws in the employee’s area. It’s a huge relief to not have to worry if we’re doing something wrong.”
ExtensisHR’s compliance experts also reached out proactively to inform the company of legislation updates affecting their organization, including the NYC Hero Act, which requires a comprehensive plan for protecting New York workers from airborne diseases. “These laws can get confusing very fast,” explains the HR/Recruitment Manager.
“ExtensisHR lets us know exactly which laws apply to companies of our size, in our industry, in our locations. They guide us through required changes, which makes the process much easier.”
