Bolder Options has contracted with EMPO for Human Resources Services since 2000. During this time, EMPO has been responsible for implementing a more strategic approach to employee management (i.e., payroll, retirement, medical benefits, employee issues and staff management).

Since working with EMPO, I have seen a vast improvement in maintaining awareness of and compliance with local, state and federal labor laws, employee recordkeeping and confidentiality, performance, conduct and behavior management of employees. This has allowed us to spend more time working on our mission and less time on human resource issues.

I highly recommend EMPO to any organization looking to improve productivity and protect their assets.

In partnering with EMPO, we found a superb resource that helped us evaluate our operations and benefits. From there, EMPO developed innovative HR strategies to achieve our unique goals. We also gained access to leading programs through top-caliber companies like BeniComp, Marsh and Regal Investment Advisors that we weren’t able to offer independently. There’s a great satisfaction in being able to provide our team excellent benefits and programs while saving money and operating more efficiently.

I just wanted to drop a note letting you know how well EMPO Corporation’s HR Department complements my mission here at Dakota Fence of MN. As the Business Director, I’m responsible for Information Technology, Finance and Human Resources.

Having EMPO as my virtual “back-office staff” allows me to complete my HR responsibilities thoroughly and carefully. It’s great having EMPO HR professionals available for tasks I’m unfamiliar with, rusty at, or just plain don’t have time or a desire to do myself. I request assistance with certain tasks (Affirmative Action Plan, 401(k) issues, complex benefits questions and issues, Open Enrollment, COBRA, etc.) and EMPO does as much or as little as I ask. I delegate the responsibility and move on. It’s wonderful to just hand something over and know it is being completed accurately, promptly and within the most current compliance requirements. It’s like having an entire HR department helping me do my job better and faster. I can focus on the HR responsibilities that deliver the most ROI for Dakota and those requiring personal interaction.
