(SARASOTA, Fla., November 24, 2014) Manasota SCORE and Paychex Inc., a leading provider of payroll, human resource, insurance and benefits outsourcing solutions for small- to medium-sized businesses, have forged a new partnership to foster continued small business growth and success in southwest Florida.
Through this partnership, Manasota SCORE (www.manasota.score.org) and Paychex (www.paychex.com) will work together to deliver educational content for business owners and key employees through special events, podcasts, mentoring and collaborative training.
“We appreciate that Paychex has partnered with our chapter to promote long-term growth for our business clients,” said Dennis Zink, chair of Manasota SCORE. “We’re looking forward to working with Paychex to develop enhanced business education, introduce SCORE clients to Paychex services, provide mentoring for their clients, and track the impact and reach of our joint efforts.”
“Paychex is proud to be partnering with SCORE to help local business owners learn more about every aspect of the employee lifecycle – from hiring your first employee to creating a robust benefits package, including retirement, that ensures you’re retaining top talent,” said Chris Timol, Paychex zone manager. “Our subject matter experts will help SCORE members navigate the intricacies of payroll and HR, as well as address new challenges such as those presented by the health care reform law.”
One of the planned partnership activities is a series of CEO Roundtables, with the first to begin in January. These roundtables, facilitated by SCORE mentors and featuring guest speakers, will bring together local business leaders to address timely topics that can benefit their businesses.
SCORE’s national podcast series, “Been There, Done That!”, will also be made available to Paychex clients through the partnership. Future podcast recordings are planned that will feature local and national SCORE mentors and business advisors and Paychex experts on topics specific to payroll, HR and employee benefits.
