Hi Neal. I am sharing the name and contact info of our outsourced HR company. Sam Husney is the principal.
President & General Manager
NY HR Management Services LLC
IBHA has been contracted with our PEO (Professional Employer Organization) - Oasis A Paychex Company (fka AureonHR) here is West Des Moines Iowa since September 2017. I was also co-employed with this same PEO several years ago with another association I worked for. Oasis serves 48 states from 2 Midwest locations https://www.oasisahr.com
Via this arrangement, Oasis provides to IBHA all our:
After we downsized to a single staff person and decided to utilize only outside contracted professionals for other work – the IBHA Board of Directors had me research if it was still feasible to maintain a PEO for a single staffed office. After doing a side by side comparison on costs and administrative work to find single plans for all the benefits, retirement, payroll, etc. the cost was basically a wash and thus we determined the base annual administrative fee was worth it and it has saved me a lot of time, energy and stress not having to worry about HR issues and administrative duties tied to benefits and access to a 401K plan.
We also contract with their subsidiary Aureon Communications for our IT needs.
I have several strong professional relationships with various individuals at Oasis – some since 2017 and others back to 20 years ago when I was first co-employed by this PEO. I am more than pleased with their services and this contractual arrangement allows IBHA to be competitive with benefits that are typically only available to large employers and we get the resources of their HR professionals.
