OUR SERVICES

Payroll

When it comes to payroll, there’s no room for mistakes or delays. Propel provides the assurance and peace of mind that your employees’ paychecks are always accurate and delivered right on time. 

But that’s not all. We simplify the time-consuming process and complexities of managing payroll and take care of things like employee onboarding, payroll tax withdrawals, and timely IRS deposits. 

Our dedicated team of payroll experts integrates your new employees into our digital payroll-processing system and also trains your team to submit payroll reports quickly and accurately. 

We support your company’s payroll with:

  • A cloud-based payroll portal for your business
  • Online employee access to pay stubs, W-2s, benefits information, and company handbooks
  • Paperless, efficient direct deposits

And if you need more help, we will also handle your benefits, compliance, and other important HR-related tasks — also managed securely in the cloud – and can recommend custom solutions based on your industry, size, and location.

By taking care of all this and more, you can get busy running your business, not your payroll.

Benefits

Providing a competitive benefits package is one of the most important ways to attract and keep top employees. Yet many businesses, especially small businesses, often find providing high-quality benefits unaffordable. From identifying the type of benefits you should offer, sourcing the best carriers and plans to streamlining the administration process, we make managing your benefits program easy.

By working with a Propel, you gain access to better benefit options, like quality health insurance through our Master Health Plan. Our ability to pool employees together into one group allows us to negotiate better health plans at lower rates. Administered by BlueChoice HealthPlan, one of the nation’s largest and most trusted health insurance providers, our comprehensive medical insurance plans are designed to fit your employee’s needs and your budget. Today, more than 80 percent of our PEO clients enrolled in our Master Health Plan have already realized significant savings – including a 0% rate increase and no plan changes over three years. 

Other benefits of our plan include:

  • Lower Premiums. Larger employee pools mean that bulk rating and composite rates that are not age-banded are lower and less volatile. 
  • Better Benefits. BlueChoice HealthPlan, a part of an AM Best A+ rated Health Insurance Carrier. Your employees also save on all-inclusive copays at the doctor’s office and have access to vision, chiropractic, and EAP benefits.
  • Greater Coverage. The plan can begin any time of year and provides access to leading health, wellness, and medical programs, including 98 percent of S.C. doctors and hospitals and access to BlueCard PPO Network in all 50 states.

In addition to our Master Health Plan, Propel offers comprehensive employee benefits solutions, including:

  • Health insurance administration

  • Section 125 Cafeteria Plan
