HR Administrative Support

Let us be an extension of your HR team. From year-round call center support to managing QLEs, EOIs, and dependent verification, we help HR turn their focus from administrative tasks back to the employees.

How It Works

Benefits can be confusing for employees, and making the right selections is intimidating enough. Bring in comparing options, finding answers to their benefits questions, and staying up-to-date on their coverage throughout the year, and it becomes a lot to handle.

On the other hand, benefit administrators can also get overwhelmed assisting employees, auditing information, and fixing discrepancies, all while attempting to engage, educate, and communicate with their employees.

More often than not, it's too much pressure for an HR team, and the latter attempts tend to get overshadowed. This results in unsure employees and overworked administrators.

Insert Hodges-Mace. We partner with Ultimate Software to help you manage benefit strategies, processes, and compliance, so you can focus on creating a better benefits experience for your employees. By clearing those items from your task list, you are no longer bogged down with administrative tasks. We help turn your focus back to what matters most–your employees.

Our bi-directional integration between UltiPro® and SmartBen enables the exchange of employee demographic data, payroll data, and benefits deduction data between the two systems.

Integration benefits:

  • Eliminate the need for duplicate data entry
  • Minimize paperwork
  • Increase efficiencies for your workforce

Through the integration, employers are less stressed about data accuracy and more focused on their employee experience. As a result, employees are more confident in their decisions and more likely to appreciate their benefits (and you, as the employer who provides them).
