PDP Announces Innovative Strategic Partnership with ThinkHR; Answers Market Demand for Immediately Responsive Advice to Complex HR Challenges

Tampa, FL – April 1, 2013 – Payroll Data Processing (PDP), a leading provider of payroll administration services distributed exclusively through independent insurance agents, announced today a strategic partnership with ThinkHR. Every new and existing client of PDP will have access to ThinkHR services through this agreement.

“ThinkHR provides answers to the most complex HR issues for those that need immediate, affordable, and conclusive HR advice,” explains David Volpi, President of PDP. “These are the types of services PDP will continue to make available to our clients through our network of independent insurance agents to respond to the demand for precise HR information as a result of health care reform, regulatory compliance, and a host of other HR operational challenges facing our clients today.”

PDP clients will have access to three revolutionary services from ThinkHR to get quick answers and advice – a HR Hotline where clients can talk directly to certified HR professional for quick verbal resolutions followed up by written summaries of the conversations, a HR Library for access to HR content, guides and other online tools to speed research, and a HR Training Center for unlimited, self-paced, web-based training from more than 200 available courses.

“We offer independent brokers an alternative to protect their book of business. By replacing national payroll services bureaus with whom they compete for insurance products and services, independent agents can be confident the payroll processing provider in their account is an ally,” continues Volpi. “PDP can handle all employee and employer-related administrative activities and compliance concerns as a single source HR outsourcing partner to the independent agent. Today’s announce reemphasizes our commitment of outstanding service to our clients and our promise to deliver the most responsive services to the most complex HR challenges. Our ThinkHR strategy will significantly differentiate our services, and specifically responsiveness, from those of national payroll providers, and provide further value through independent agent relationships and solutions.

ThinkHR’s network of on-call consultants are available to assist with complicated Human Resources topics including healthcare reform, benefits and employer compliance, employee terminations, leaves of absence, discrimination, employee relations, conflict resolution, performance management, payroll wage and earnings, payroll tax, worker’s compensation, and similar HR and benefits related situations.

“This new partnership underscores our commitment to the small business and independent insurance agent communities,” said Pete Yozzo, Founder and CEO of ThinkHR. “Our companies — both PDP and ThinkHR – are dedicated to evolving our products and services to match the needs of our clients and servicing them well through the turbulent HR days just ahead.”
