Gibson, a regional insurance broker and risk management services firm, now offers Select Business Solutions, a new human resources platform for small- to mid-sized employers. It combines benefits, payroll and HR into one integrated solution; and includes accounting support services, business insurance and special projects as additional offerings.
This expanded product follows a trend in the HR and employee benefits industries to automate processes, connect technologies and support employees by modernizing business functions. With organizations concentrating on a great employee experience, business owners will be able to utilize Gibson's Select Business Solutions and redeploy their talent to focus on strategy, culture and what they do best.
