IBA – Your Human Resources Partner

Clients turn to Ipswich Bay Advisors for their human resources needs because we understand that human resources and employee benefits are interrelated. Harmonizing pay, policy, and benefit packages as well as complying with local laws demands specialized expertise. Strategically, Ipswich Bay Advisors provides its clients and their HR Departments with tools for producing competitive advantage. 

Our consultants complement your company’s management team so they can focus on their core business, rather than handling small or complex HR issues. In other words, be able to grow your business by focusing on your goals instead of your administration.

Additionally, outsourcing an HR activity can reduce liability and risk, which is critical for companies that do not have the resources to employ staff specialists who are fully informed on the legal requirements of HR programs.  Ipswich Bay Advisors assists our clients regarding:

  • Design and development of human resource systems and policies including administration of enrollments/terminations, payroll administration, and billing reconciliation;
  • On-site resources for supporting employee relations issues and workforce administration;
  • Review and preparation of all employee communications i.e. benefit announcements, open enrollment news, policy changes, etc.;
  • Development or revision of new hire orientation programs, documentation, and processes;
  • Management/staff development or performance reviews;
  • Providing effective trainings for staff in a variety of topics intended to promote a safe work environment, increase employee satisfaction, productivity and retention while reducing a company’s risk and liability;
  • Streamlining or implementing benefits administration tools;
  • Reviewing compensation plan design and administration including benchmarking positions with our in-house benchmarking tool;
  • Development or revision of your employee handbook and policies;
  • Keeping abreast of HR legislative compliance requirements;
  • Due diligence for employment transitions including downsizing, restructuring, merger and acquisitions;
  • Providing recruiting services to complement the hiring process or outplacement services to complement the termination process; and
  • Generating industry-standard or customizable analytics and reports.

Introducing Integrated Human Resources Administration

There’s a reason why Human Resources Outsourcing (HRO) is enjoying the highest level of demand it’s seen in the 75 years since the business model was created. Human Resources Outsourcing helps relieve the administrative and financial burden of managing your company's payroll, benefits, and employee services. By refocusing HR functions, companies can achieve a closer alignment of HR practices with business strategy as well as cut costs consistent with competitive resource allocation. Ipswich Bay Advisors’ HRO service can complement your business structure by offering many value-added services including:

  • HR Management: IBA HRO creates internal compliance policies, new-hire packages, onboarding procedures and processes, detailed employee handbooks and manuals, and training documentation.

Our access to the largest, most up to date and most detailed salary dataset in the world will accurately position your organization for recruitment and retention.
  • Regulatory Compliance: One of the primary roles of an HRO is to ensure you are 100% compliant with all federal and state laws. This includes audits and reporting for all tax filings and corporate regulations, such as FMLA, HIPAA, and Sarbanes-Oxley.
  • Benefits Administration: Our unique benefit design strategies have helped many companies effectively manage their benefits by keeping costs down while meeting the needs of employees and building morale. IBA HRO assists with administration of benefits programs including enrollment, termination and billing.
