Payroll-as-a-Service Startup Check Announces Partnership with Procare
Check, the payroll-as-a-service startup whose mission is to make paying people simple, today announced a partnership with Procare Solutions, the leading child care management software platform. Together, Check and Procare will improve the way that child care centers are able to pay their teams.

Procare is a leader in the child care industry and is uniquely positioned to meet the needs of this community. That's why we're thrilled to be partnering with Procare to bring integrated payroll solutions to child care centers, taking one of the most time-consuming processes that a business performs off their plate.

- Andrew Brown, CEO and co-founder of Check.

This partnership, which will enable Procare to fully integrate payroll capabilities into its platform, comes at a critical time for the child care industry. As providers of in-person services, child care centers were hit hard from the beginning of the pandemic and have struggled through the continued waves of the coronavirus. While child care center administrators have consistently wanted improved payroll for several years, the pandemic and resulting fewer resources accelerated the acute need to simplify the payroll process. By partnering with Check, Procare will be able to build a more automated, easy-to-use payroll product for child care centers across the country.

We're proud to support child care centers by making their day-to-day operations easier and soon, that will include a payroll solution built directly into our software. We frequently hear from customers that they want to simplify paying their teams, and Check was the perfect partner for delivering on this mandate, enabling us to offer a one-stop-shop for our customers' operational and administrative needs. We're excited to integrate Check's technology into our platform to help us provide a child care-specific and efficient payroll offering, so our customers can get back to providing quality care to children.

- JoAnn Kintzel, Procare CEO.

HR For Health Launches Flagship DSO & Emerging Groups Software

HR for Health announced an upgrade to their software on September 7, 2021. This update ensures compatibility with larger dental groups and DSOs (Dental Service Organizations)The new strategic direction came about on the heels of HR for Health's 2020 survey and corresponding 2021 whitepaper "Unnecessary Risk: The State of Human Resources Compliance in Dentistry." The study revealed some shocking statistics around HR and compliance in larger group practices and DSOs, including discovering that 88% of businesses are operating with non-compliant employee manuals, 49% have trouble tracking new compliance requirements, and 21% have faced a hostile work environment claim in the past year. "The information gleaned from this survey was quite a shock for our team at HR for Health Our business has always worked well with single healthcare practices, and we assumed that larger groups had more control surrounding compliance - but it is now clear that is not the case. Further complicating matters, DSOs can operate in multiple states, and are more often subject to wrongful termination, unemployment, and discrimination claims. Keeping compliant is a large problem area in dentistry as a whole. DSOs and dental groups are not exempt from these hardships, and would be well served by bringing in a third party human resources software to alleviate the burden." -CEO Ali Oromchian, J.D. The announcement coincided with HR for Health and Group Dentistry Now's debut DSO Leadership Summit, a dental group event in San Francisco drawing 300+ attendees September 7-8 in San Francisco. About HR for Health® HR for Health is empowering business owners with the resources to develop and implement enforceable employment policies and avoid legal pitfalls.

HR Acuity Launches managER™ to Help People Leaders Get Employee Relations Right, Every Time

HR Acuity, the only technology platform purpose-built for employee relations and investigations management, today announced the launch of managER, a new technology product designed for people leaders that simplifies managing employee issues. managER solves decades-old problems of inconsistent processes, inadequate documentation and ineffective resolutions related to employee issues such as performance problems or policy violations. "Frontline people leaders are the most direct connection between a company's brand and their employees,Until now, managers lacked the tools and guidance needed to help them handle everyday employee issues properly. managER provides the framework and technology needed to document employee issues quickly, consistently and fairly – all while building manager confidence. This results in enterprises retaining employees and creating safer workplaces." -Deb Muller, CEO and founder of HR Acuity. Muller further explained, "As much as technology has improved how people leaders participate in other areas of HR (coaching, performance reviews and onboarding), the opportunity for technology to strengthen the efficiency and effectiveness of employee relations at the manager level remains largely untapped. In addition to empowering people leaders, enlarging the scope of data captured related to employee issues delivers a powerful set of predictive insights to identify areas of concern, policy or training opportunities, potential inequities or even bias within organizations." HR Acuity conducted a recent survey on management practices and found that just 2% of employee relations professionals were "very confident" that their managers could address and document employee relations issues effectively. The survey also found that managers lack access to historical data and need better tools to handle concerns in a uniform and compliant manner. managER closes that gap by giving people leaders the technology they need to manage employee matters in real time. Key managER features include: Step-by-step guidance on handling common workplace issues, including assistance in selecting the appropriate issue and built-in guidance to help prepare formal letters Easily accessible visibility into past employee issues and actions taken to help determine next steps Seamless workflows to document early warnings or deliver formal notices Simple, built-in review and approval process for people leaders to get assistance or approvals from HR Data from the people-leader level compiled into one centralized dashboard, allowing employee relations teams to proactively spot trends and identify patterns By enabling people leaders to handle everyday employee issues with more confidence, managER gives HR and employee relations teams more time to focus on broader strategic initiatives and improve consistency and fairness across the organization. Better processes and earlier engagement also promote trust between employees and their leaders. "For us, managER was not a hard sell,We believe in empowering our people leaders to manage their employees, but we understand that they need the help and guidance that managER provides to them. The product also facilitates communication between employee relations and people leaders. We're confident that managER will change our culture, driving more accountability for managers." -Paula Ramirez, VP of HR Shared Services at Boeing Employee Credit Union It's time to upgrade how people leaders handle employee issues on the front lines.
