Sapoznik Insurance and Engage PEO Announce Launch of HR and Benefits Solution Catered to Florida's Small Business

St. Petersburg, Fla. – December 16, 2013 – Engage PEO, a leading professional employer organization providing HR outsourcing solutions to small and mid-sized businesses, and Sapoznik Insurance, a top South Florida full-service, employee benefits agency, jointly announced the launch of the Sapoznik HR PEO Solution, powered by Engage. Through this custom offering tailored to small businesses with 50 employees or less, South Florida business owners and their employees will be able to receive Engage’s array of HR and healthcare benefits through a private exchange of Aetna medical insurance solutions.

“The Sapoznik HR PEO partnership provides affordable healthcare solutions to those smaller businesses confronted by the challenges resulting from healthcare reform changes,” said Jay Starkman, Engage’s chief executive officer. “In addition to healthcare benefits, small businesses have access to employment/HR attorneys to assist with compliance guidance, ensuring business owners can focus on the most important thing – running their business.”

The new private label, custom-designed product is specifically geared towards those companies impacted most by healthcare reform’s unintended consequences – small businesses that are suffering through brutal insurance quotes, canceled policies, dramatically higher renewals and numerous administrative and compliance requirements.

“Changes in the healthcare reform landscape are making it very difficult for small employers in Florida to compete with best-in-class benefits offerings,” said Rachel Sapoznik, president and CEO of Sapoznik Insurance. “With this solution, we’re able to offer small businesses affordable healthcare options, as well as the counsel, HR compliance and technology that come with being an Engage PEO client.”
