This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.
If it weren't for innovative people with imaginations, we would probably still be living a very primitive life. Take Johannes Gutenberg, for example. He invented the printing press. Or Steve Jobs, the co-inventor of the personal computer. This creation has single-handedly impacted the way this world works. People or organizations with this type of innovation help improve the business world. That is exactly what Innovative Staffing of Salt Lake does, because like the old adage says, they think outside the box.
Innovative Staffing is a professional employer organization, or PEO, that specializes in HR outsourcing and brings Fortune 500 benefits to smaller businesses with less than 200 employees. Innovative Staffing owner John Farnsworth tells me his company joins a co-owner employer relationship with its clients and looks for opportunities to improve business. Innovative Staffing has several years of combined experience in the PEO industry and understands the complexities of payroll administration, benefit plan negotiating, unemployment claims management, workers' compensation, tax compliance and human resources.
John operates Innovative Staffing with his wife, Michelyn, who used to own a nationally recognized PEO. But she wanted the company to be solely Utah-based, so she sold her national company and started Innovative Staffing in December 1999. Innovative Staffing targets businesses that range from companies with 100-plus employees and high turnover retail companies to two-man law or CPA firms.
You would be surprised at how innovative this company can really be. Innovative Staffing can help lower employee administration costs and increase employee productivity. They do this with good benefit plans, lower premiums, and enhanced safety to policies and procedures.
