Being an employer at any time is hard. Being an employer during a pandemic takes the challenge to a new level.

This year employers had to transform their processes and policies to sustain their businesses while protecting the health of employees and customers. Complying with new laws and regulations passed in response to COVID-19, often without guidance about how to implement them, added to the burden. The result is that many employers are bogged down in administrative tasks, human resources, and compliance at a time when they need to be focused on core business functions.

There is an easy, cost-effective solution. Turn over these functions to a team of experts that is adept in HR problem-solving, can shoulder the burdens of compliance, and will respond quickly to change.

What does Anthros do?

Anthros is an HR outsourcing company that actively manages and reduces the risks of being an employer. Our team manages regulatory compliance, provides worker’s compensation coverage, administers benefits programs, processes payroll, and guides clients with HR best practices.

Instead of a piecemeal approach to compliance, HR and payroll, Anthros offers a unified, integrated solution.

How do businesses benefit from outsourcing HR?

Businesses that outsource their human resources have more flexibility, grow more quickly and experience lower rates of employee turnover. Our team takes over time-consuming HR administrative tasks and keeps our clients compliant with constantly changing employment, tax, health, and safety laws and regulations.

Clients can focus on core functions and growing their business, while we focus on the wellbeing of the team.

What is it like to be an Anthros client?

The Anthros mission is to “empower clients to become the best in their industries and build a legacy by serving as their long-term partner in human resources.”

What you get in Anthros is a partner, not a vendor. Whether a client has three employees or three hundred, we serve them with the same level of care and attention.

We are a small PEO and that is by design. It means clients get to know our team, not our voicemail. It also means we’re flexible. Rather than deploy a single service delivery template for every client, we create custom solutions that fit each client’s specific needs.

Technology matters. That’s why Anthros invests heavily in technology for the future of our clients. Our HR technology platform is secure, easy-to-use, and customizable, with a self-service portal for employees. It streamlines HR processes and bridges the gap between employer and employee.

Anthros is licensed in 44 states and serves clients nationwide. However, what matters to us is not where a client is located or what industry they’re in. What matters to us is people, and we seek out clients that share our values and want to invest in their teams.

How does Anthros support clients in times of change?

The COVID-19 pandemic has upended many of our ideas about work and what it means to be an employer. It has increased compliance burdens and highlighted the need for robust, clear employee policies.

Like other businesses, Anthros has evolved this year. We saw how the pandemic was affecting employee well-being and mental health and introduced new employee benefits and affordable healthcare solutions. We have also provided our clients with frequent, in-depth information about new laws such as the CARES Act and Families First Coronavirus Response Act and what clients needed to do to be compliant. We are constantly reviewing and expanding upon our benefits and services to better support clients and their teams.

By supporting clients in times of change, we strengthen workplace culture and prepare clients for growth.

Next steps

As the end of the year approaches, many businesses are thinking about how they will continue to operate and thrive during the ongoing pandemic.

If the administrative burdens of human resources and compliance are straining your team, we encourage you to get in touch and learn more about how outsourcing these functions can protect your business and your employees.
