Accord Human Resources, a leading provider of outsourced HR management solutions, was recently named one of the winners of the OKC Business’ Best of Business 2008 for Payroll Service Providers. The award was given to the most outstanding payroll service providers in OKC, and Accord, the only PEO among the award recipients, was recognized for its key role in this extremely competitive market.

OKC Business announced its winners in the September 1, 2008 issue, and Accord was one of only five payroll service providers honored. While the other businesses named offer only payroll services, Accord provides comprehensive business solutions including benefits, human resources and risk management, in addition to its impressive payroll services. By being this type of one-stop shop, Accord takes away more than one type of headache for their clients, and this makes the value they provide for their clients immeasurable.

“Many business owners focus on payroll, because it’s one of the most time-intensive parts of running a business,” said Dale Hageman, President and CEO of Accord. “While we provide outstanding service in the area of payroll, the value we provide to our customers goes far beyond that. Accord provides solutions that can greatly impact the way business owners spend their time. Instead of spending hours upon hours researching and negotiating benefits, being consumed by human resources issues, worrying about compliance and payroll taxes, and processing payroll, our clients are able to focus on what’s really important to them – growing their businesses.”

Accord’s payroll department is dedicated to going above and beyond to meet the needs of their clients. While many PEOs are unable to provide the level of service their clients deserve, Accord prides itself on being flexible and accommodating to their clients’ needs. “Accord is dedicated to providing the best experience for our clients. The customer service we provide is outstanding, because we haven’t lost sight of what is important – the client,” said Marilyn Conyer, Accord’s Vice President of Human Resources.
