HR software for small business owners to streamline workflows and be more efficient

HR software for small business owners helps to streamline workflows and be more efficient

According to the SBA, there are roughly 31 million small businesses in the US.  Research shows that most of these businesses were still conducting paper-based benefit enrollments in 2019.  With that said, HR and employee benefits were already in the middle of a huge digital transformation when the pandemic hit, forcing even more companies to adapt fast or be left behind.  Contrary to how small business owners may feel, they do not need a large budget to digitalize and streamline workflows to be more efficient in the areas of HR and Employee Management.  They just need a benefit broker like Castle Group Health*, who offers a broker powered solution such as Ease.

Ease is an all-in-one cloud-based system that is considered one of the best HR software solutions available for small businesses.  Only available through your broker, we provide you with the core features of Ease at no cost, with optional add-on features available at nominal costs.  All the features of Ease are designed to help small business owners overcome common challenges they face:

  • No dedicated HR person
  • No dedicated IT infrastructure
  • Record keeping and compliance
  • Employee retention
  • Employee development and performance

With a 4.8 customer star rating, Ease is extremely intuitive and automates payroll, benefits administration, workforce planning, regulatory compliance and provides business owners with the tools they need to manage and retain good employees.  Here are just a few key features:

  • Employee onboarding
