Human capital management solutions provider Ceridian Canada Ltd. has officially launched a new online service that gives small business owners all the tools necessary to pay and manage their people in one convenient location. Ceridian for Small Business provides employee-related solutions, which will result in up to a 9% reduction in labour costs for organizations with less than 50 employees.
Ceridian Canada President Dave MacKay said, “Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, but they are unnecessarily burdened when it comes to managing people in a fast paced environment. Too many services, with unrealistic pricing, distributed across too many providers has meant that small business owners have been unable to identify and draw upon the resources they need. With Ceridian for Small Business, we want to level the playing field and support their growth by putting all the latest high-quality tools at their fingertips at the prices they can afford.”
Ceridian for Small Business provides a single-source provision of employee-related services by allowing employers to simply go online to arrange the monthly service plan that best suits their needs. Upon registering, they can access Ceridian’s range of on-demand services when the need arises on matters such as employment law advice, recruiting, background checking and training.
Nick Thomson, Ceridian Canada’s Vice President of Corporate Development and leading the delivery of this project said, “The reality is when it comes to getting the most out of your people in any size of business, you need to go beyond simply paying people. By visiting our site, customers can not only source the combination of solutions they need to manage their team day-to-day, but also respond professionally to those unexpected people problems.”
Ceridian for Small Business helps small business owners ensure they are fulfilling all Canada Revenue Agency requirements and complying with employment standards legislation. The site also gives users access to experienced HR advisors who can offer as-needed advice on a range of subjects including payroll, employment standards compliance, recruitment and employee support — all in one online destination.
