Workscape's Award-Winning Integrated Outsourced Solutions and Services Selected for Intense Focus, Flexibility, and Cost Effectiveness
MARLBOROUGH, Mass. (November 14, 2006) - Workscape, a leading provider of outsourced benefits administration and performance-driven compensation solutions, today announced that Spartanburg, S.C.-based BMW Manufacturing Co. has recently implemented the company's comprehensive outsourced benefits administration services to handle the benefits service needs of BMW's more than 4,400 employees.
BMW sought to cost-effectively streamline its benefits administration processes while also offering its workforce an expanded selection of benefits options. Through Workscape's Benefits Administration, BMW's HR professionals and employees turn to a single site for self-service benefits enrollment as well as the management of COBRA, FSA and HIPAA programs. Workscape's U.S.-based HR Service Center provides BMW's employees with 24 x 7 access to accurate, consistent information regarding their benefits and related HR issues.
"Benefits administration is an extremely important yet time-intensive process. By outsourcing to Workscape, we're able to provide our employees with enhanced services while keeping our focus on strategic corporate initiatives," stated Gregory Jackman, Manager Security, Benefits, Health, Privacy Protection at BMW Manufacturing Co. "We recently completed the 'go live' stage of our annual enrollment process and are pleased to give Workscape a BMW 'best practice' rating." Leveraging its more than 30 years of HR communications expertise, Workscape's Communications Practice worked hand-in-hand with BMW to develop and execute a communications strategy to ensure employees remained informed about the upcoming changes for their annual enrollment. As part of the five-year contract, Workscape is also providing BMW with premium billing services.
Tim Clifford, President and CEO of Workscape, said, "We welcome BMW Manufacturing as a client and are pleased that they have joined the many global companies that entrust their benefits administration to Workscape. As we continue to see strong momentum in the benefits category, BMW is now among a list of prestigious organizations with rigorous standards for employee service that chose Workscape's outsourced benefits administration." He continued, "Our customers have discovered how much employee satisfaction is enhanced when enrollment is easier to understand and complete. We take pride in our record of Workscape's retention of service representatives and our investment in their training. This has enabled us to support our client's workforces more effectively than competitors."
