HOw DOES HR OUTSOURCING SERVICES HELP YOUR BUSINESS?
Many small businesses in the Inland Empire with less than 100 employees. They tend to forego an HR department or opt for in-house HR services. In many cases, the HR department is not certified or fully versed in processes and guidelines.

We can provide the tools to help you make an educated decision in your business conduct, including, but not limited to:
- Physical audits for departments
- Handbook reviews for changing laws (specifically California) to keep up to date and compliant with current State and Federal regulations
- Compensation studies and adjusting pay scales
- Leave of absence guidance
- Policy review
- Workers Compensation and Employers Liability
TyPES OF Benefits for YOUR Employees
Your employees are the backbone of your business, no matter how large or small your company is. Providing benefits to them is an excellent way to reduce turnover and improve employee retention rates. Offering certain benefits is also a more effective way to improve company morale and productivity than simply raising salaries. For example, employees who are offered better healthcare coverage often take fewer days off.
Benefits you may wish to provide your employees can include:
- Health, dental, and vision insurance coverage
- Paid holidays
- Maternity, Paternity, or Adoption leave
- Life insurance
- Profit sharing
Gallant Risk & Insurance Services are fantastic. They are honest, knowledgeable and responsive.
When I first met with them they identified gaps in my current insurance coverage, secured better coverage and lowered my premiums. They make it a point to follow-up periodically to determine if circumstances have changed and whether my current insurance is adequate. They also help navigate the claims process. I recommend them for all your insurance needs without hesitation.
