seasonal changes and workplace safety

It's officially Autumn! The September equinox arrived on September 22, 2016 at 9:21 a.m. CDT - That's today! For us in the Northern Hemisphere, that means the sun is rising later now, and nightfall coming sooner. At Bibbidi HR, we're enjoying the cooler days and looking forward to brisk fall business ahead. With these busier times approaching... now is a good time to review your workplace safety and accident prevention initiatives.
Together with the upcoming time change, an increase in business can lead to more work-related accidents. Studies have shown effects associated with time of work and changing temperatures on worker productivity and workplace injuries. In this month's newsletter, we've included is a risk review on the fundamentals of accident prevention. It's important to be reminded of these points regularly, and we recommend taking a fresh look at your policies and educating all your employees as well. As always, our team at Bibbidi HR is always here to help navigate with all your Employment and Risk Management needs - Just let us know!

January 2015


Congress officially passed the Small Business Efficiency Act (SBEA), which will become effective on January 1, 2016. This is big news for Bibbidi HR and the Professional Employer Organization (PEO) world.

What Does the SBEA do?
Creates a certification process for PEOs within the IRS;
 
Gives certified PEOs (CPEOs) the clear statutory authority to collect and remit federal employment taxes;
 
Eliminates the wage base restart for PEO clients who  join or leave a PEO relationship; and,
 
Codifies that customers of CPEOs will qualify for specified federal tax credits that the customers would be entitled to claim if there were no PEO relationship.
 
The passage of the SBEA provides considerable advantages for business owners. While formally and clearly transferring the burden of tax liability from small and mid-­‐size businesses that contract with certified PEOs, the liabilities and fears of navigating through complex tax codes is eliminated for our clients.

Bibbidi HR, Inc. Earns National Distinction - Financial Assurance Program to benefit clients and employees of PEOs

Release Date: October 1, 2014
Houston, TX – Bibbidi HR, Inc. has recently achieved accreditation through the Employer Services Assurance Corporation (ESAC).  ESAC is the nationally recognized financial assurance, standard-setting and accreditation entity for the PEO industry.  Only 20% of Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs) in the USA have earned this distinction, and Bibbidi HR is proud to be among the industry’s gold standard as an ESAC verified professional provider.
This financial protection program is similar to the FDIC for the banking industry in that it provides over $15 million in financial assurance coverage for losses to clients, worksite employees, taxing authorities and insurance carriers in the unlikely event that a participating PEO defaults on its financial responsibilities. “Our ESAC accreditation is a tremendous distinction for our organization.  It demonstrates to our valued clients the financial assurance available as an accredited PEO of ESAC as well as the independent verification of our service quality and financial stability,” said Kelly Rider, President of Bibbidi HR, Inc.
Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs) provide integrated services to effectively manage your company’s critical human resource responsibilities and employer risks. And Entrepreneur Magazine says: "A PEO is one of the best-kept secrets of many successful small businesses. The best are accredited by the Employer Services Assurance Corporation..."
