Until recently, it was more or less the norm for companies of all sizes in the United States to offer benefits to their employees. But as we all know, the employment landscape has drastically changed. Today such benefit packages are increasingly rare – especially with early-stage startups. While companies with 51 or more employees are legally required to provide benefits, smaller companies are left to make tough decisions for themselves, balancing the desire to recruit top notch talent with the real costs of competitive benefit offerings.
Because only an estimated 35% of companies with 2 to 15 employees offer healthcare benefits, however, startups that do provide such employment perks set themselves apart as especially desirable places to work.
GAN HR, which we announced last month in partnership with TriNet, lets you as a GAN startup do just that. A hands-on service that provides access to a core suite of HR benefits including payroll, health benefits, risk and compliance, a legal team, and HR mentorship, GAN HR is a game-changer for startups. Seriously. We’re offering this suite of benefits at the most competitive price ever given to a group of startups.
Beyond a competitive advantage in recruiting and keeping talent, GAN HR will help you avoid some of the common HR and payroll mistakes that can all too easily derail a startup – things like classifying people as contractors instead of employees, overpaying for healthcare and benefits, bogging down your team with paperwork, and mixing personal and business finances.
As you scale, your startup will face all kinds of daunting obstacles and complex challenges. GAN HR is a powerful tool for simplifying one crucial aspect of your business, freeing you up to focus on what you do best – building a company that will leave a positive mark in the world for years to come.
