Trust is fundamental to building solid relationships and critical to making life long informed decisions.
Trust is The Gremel Group’s secret sauce and it is the foundation of our boutique experience.
Benefit Administration Systems
We live in a world where there is no shortage for technology or “apps” to simplify our lives. Ecommerce, banking, food delivery, even car shopping and so much more. Why expect anything less when it comes to one’s benefits administration system?
The Gremel Group will design and administer Online Employee Benefit Portals for clients. Employee self-service, document storage, plan communication and compliance are all at our clients’ and their employees’ fingertips. The Gremel Group utilizes cloud-based software solutions to ensure clients are not stuck with outdated legacy systems that are cumbersome, diminish productivity and expensive. Ask us how we can improve your employee experience, drive engagement, better manage benefits and compliance, and put time back in your day.
Human Resources Support
The Gremel Group provides a three tier Human Resources Support service.
Tier One: Access to The Gremel Group’s Experienced Team
Our clients have daily access to a cohesive and responsive team dedicated to providing same day response—even if we are still working to resolve an issue or still researching a question. Our agency management system allows for HIPPA compliant storage and sharing of service calls across our team. This allows for organized retrieval of information by our staff even when involved members are away from their desks. Our goal is top notch agency wide availability and we achieve it through new technology as well as an old fashioned culture of caring.
Tier Two: Online Human Resource Tools
Business clients can enroll in our professional grade online human resource research and compliance system. This system provides legal and human resource search tools. Our wizard-based document creation tool with state by state regulatory updates allows clients to generate employee handbooks, required legal notices and even summary plan description (SPD) wrap documents–just to name a few. In addition, clients can develop employee and management training courses on topics including but not limited to: safety, diversity and anti-harassment. Successful training course completion is date and time stamped. Certificates are issued for those associates who have successfully completed courses. These certificates are all saved to a cloud-based record keeping system.
Tier Three: Human Resource Advisory Services
When clients have sensitive questions or emergent circumstances, they want answers now. The Gremel Group’s extended team of human resource professionals, that have an average of 18 years of experience, are on call ten hours per day to consult with clients. They work to get solid answers on the spot along with a follow-up email including a summary recommendation as well as source documentation showing the basis for the answer(s) provided.
Business Succession Planning
Often business owners have an understanding of the need for “Buy/Sell Agreements” and the fact that life insurance is an important piece of any successful plan. Getting to the decision point often involves hours of conversation with and among the various stakeholders involved. We have extensive experience in moving clients through the process. We do not charge hourly fees for the often-lengthy process of “getting to yes.” Our experience in the West Michigan legal community connects clients to the professionals they need. If a client already has legal counsel, it is likely The Gremel Group has worked with them over the years.
