Employee Benefit & HR Services

Strategic Human Resources Management

In the competitive landscape of business, your employees are your greatest strength, making it clear that effective HR services are pivotal for any strategy aimed at success.

However, for small businesses, the complexities of managing an employee's journey from recruitment to retirement can be daunting. This challenge is magnified by the dense web of government regulations.

Even small errors in HR management can lead to severe consequences, including significant fines and a decline in employee engagement.

Partnering with Axcet for your HR services ensures meticulous attention to these critical aspects, safeguarding your business against potential pitfalls and fortifying the foundation for your company's growth and success.

We are small, and as such, rarely in the eye of a payroll services company. Axcet works with our multiple entities. I want to focus on our business, and they focus on HR for me. Because we are small, I really don't want to have a 'personal' disagreement about PTO or vacation pay, so I set the guidelines, and Axcet manages them, which I love.

Felisha M.

Owner, Insurance Firm

We really appreciate the work you are doing for our tradeshow and exhibit display company. The fun part is we get at least an email a day, phone calls every day, and we see the commercials on tv for something that you have taken care of for us last year. (And, of course, it is in the capable IRS hands now.)

Thanks for making this so easy for us.

Don J.

Owner, B2B Tradeshow & Exhibit Company

Turning our admin, payroll, benefits, 401K, workers' compensation, etc., over to Axcet HR has been one of the best decisions that we've ever made: that was back in 2001! We've had 21 great years with Axcet and hope to have 21 more! Axcet has saved us time and LOTS of money but most of all, Axcet HR has allowed us to focus on running our business...because we know, day in, and day out that Axcet has our back!

Bob G.

Owner, B2B Services Company

As a start-up, Axcet's HR solutions have been an integral partner in guiding us through several key business necessities and requirements. They have been very helpful in core functions including recruiting, 401k setup, employee onboarding, benefits enrollment, payroll and various compliance training for our employees. We've gained business momentum as a result of Axcet's team of dedicated professionals.

I burned through a couple of "payroll companies" before I found Axcet. I have yet to encounter anyone at this company that hasn't been friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. Calls are returned amazingly fast and problems are solved without having to make any other calls. This is truly a great company and stellar business partner!

Nita C.

Emily D.

CEO, a Kansas City Non-profit

We had tried two other PEOs. Both of which we left after the first year. The level of service that we were accustomed to with Axcet was not there, so we came back to Axcet truly because of the excellent service we always received. Everyone at Axcet would make us feel like we were their only client, like they were sitting there waiting for our call, always friendly and ready to help. 

Lisa C.

VP of Finance, Kansas City Financial Institution

We started working with Axcet in 2018 and they have dramatically increased our internal productivity. We used to spend hours on payroll, HR, benefits, taxes, etc. each week and that is no longer the case. Prior to Axcet, we worked with two other payroll companies and is was a complete mess. Working with Axcet is like having a robust and efficient internal HR department. They have solutions to every problem and we no longer feel lost trying to navigate the payroll landscape. If you want to streamline your business and get out of the HR and payroll weeds, then go with Axcet.

Peyton W.

Thank you Axcet HR for your assistance with the employee issue. You justified every penny we pay to Axcet through this exercise. I am really glad we have you and Axcet as a resource.

A partnership with Axcet simplifies your life and your business, relieving stress and the need to build a robust, in-house HR department. You’ll benefit from a deep bench of highly qualified HR experts who have spent decades managing HR for small and medium-sized companies.

Outsourcing HR services to Axcet is a symbiotic relationship in which we do what we do best – HR management – so you can do what you do best – follow your passion and grow your company.

What HR Services Should You Outsource?

Small business owners often don’t want or are not equipped to handle HR functions internally. To gain expertise and time, they may choose to transfer some or all of those responsibilities to a third-party HR management services provider like Axcet HR Solutions, which then becomes responsible for the contracted HR functions.

Commonly outsourced HR tasks include:

  • Recruiting, hiring and retention strategy development
  • Employee handbook and policy manual development
  • Background checks and drug screenings
  • Employee relations and employee engagement
  • Performance management, employee discipline and termination guidance
  • Unemployment claims processing
  • Researching, preparing and updating affirmative action plans
  • Regulatory compliance management

As a top PEO HR services provider in Kansas City, Axcet offers clients the flexibility to choose which services they outsource. Some smaller businesses prefer to let Axcet handle all the above duties and more, while others take a more à la carte approach, outsourcing select services and keeping others in-house.

The ability to choose the human resources services they outsource allows small and mid-sized businesses to gain the exact expertise and administrative HR relief they need.

When to Outsource HR

If you run an SMB and are trying to decide whether or not outsourcing HR services is right for you, step back and evaluate the state of your company. The more time your leadership team is spending on routine but necessary work like performance management or compliance issues, the less time and energy are available for strategic planning and revenue-producing functions.

If some of these factors are true of your company, it’s time to consider outsourcing HR services:

Your business is sluggish

The amount of time your team has to spend on HR administration each week can become a distraction that contributes to business stagnation. Turning to an HR consulting firm like Axcet for human resources management services frees up time your internal team can redirect to strategic activities. As another benefit, businesses that partner with a PEO tend to grow 7% to 9% faster than those that don’t engage a PEO’s services.

Your business is booming

The more workers your company adds, the more important – and demanding – HR issues become. Outsourcing not only gives you access to knowledgeable consultants who can develop competitive compensation plans and well-thought-out employee policies, but who also can train managers and employees to help you maintain or improve your culture as the company grows.

Your employees are disengaged

When employees are committed to the organizations they work for and actively seek to advance their employers’ missions, productivity and profitability improve. Leaning on Axcet to provide guidance, offer training and develop meaningful employee initiatives, your small company can boost engagement, create a desirable culture and reduce turnover.

You aren’t happy with recruiting and retention outcomes

Finding and keeping the right people for the right jobs is imperative to business success. Axcet’s human resources consultants, who are experienced in the most advanced recruiting, hiring and retention strategies and technologies, can help you find high-performing candidates who embrace your company’s culture and mission.

You’re struggling to keep up with compliance issues

It’s hard enough to be aware of the vast number of city, county, state and federal employment regulations with which your small business is expected to comply. It’s harder still to keep up with these laws when they change regularly. Axcet HR Solutions, an expert in all aspects of employment, will be your best partner to ensure your company adheres to every necessary regulation.
