Industry: Travel

Team Spirit is the order of the day for two leading Fife businesses which have joined forces to provide companies with the opportunity to harness the skills of their workforce through fun and creative thinking challenges.

The four star, Best Western Keavil House Hotel in Dunfermline provides the venue for Team Challenge Company to demonstrate how productivity and, in turn, profitability can be improved through high calibre team building events.

Whether indoors or outdoors, events can be tailored to meet clients’ specific requirements, often involving group working and problem solving.

Alistair Bruce, General Manager of the hotel said, “In the current climate, where many businesses have restructured leaving them with tighter staffing and teams that may not have worked together before, team building is invaluable. Employee effectiveness and productivity is being scrutinised: management need to know their teams are pulling together in the best way possible.

“We have seen the effect of Team Challenge Company expert instruction, and are delighted to work with them to create opportunities not only for local Fife business, but for organisations nationwide. Keavil is based only 20 minutes from Edinburgh airport and near the motorway network, so easily accessible from across UK”.

PML Risk Management, Inc. Announced Today That It Will Be Accepting Peo Workers Compensation Submissions For Underwriting Quotes On An Invitation Only Basis

Author: PML Risk Management, Inc
Industry: Human Resources

According to company owner Jim Shelton, “After more than three years of hard work and several set-backs, our program is finally ready for the PEO markets we have been trying to help”.

“The mid-market PEO will be able to breathe a refreshing sigh of relief with this program designed specifically for the PEO. In particular, smaller PEOs struggle to keep a workers’ comp policy, let alone afford it. Why? Simply put, workers compensation carriers have attached a negative stigma to PEO’s, requiring high collateral, deposits or “fixed” premiums based on an estimated annual premium, hurting the already beleaguered cash flow needed for the PEO’s day to day operations. Larger PEOs tie up precious cash flow and credit; that won’t happen with PML’s program”.

PML Risk Management, Inc. is trying to change the relationship between workers comp carriers and the PEOs who honestly and effectively manage their risk.

PML Risk Management, Inc, is not a professional employer organization (PEO), but the company owner has over 24 years experience as a PEO owner; fully aware of the workers compensation challenges and pitfalls facing the mid-market PEO, as well as the larger PEO.
