ARTICLE:

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Feb. 25, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- One Virtual Source (OVS), in collaboration with the Philippine Trade and Investment Center-Silicon Valley (PTIC-SV) presented to a crowd of entrepreneurs, startups and technology managers, discussing best practices in leveraging international software companies as a way to reduce costs and drive business growth.

"Think Global to Grow Your Business - Best Practices in Outsourcing" featured JR Calanoc and Nancy Hwang, CEO and COO of OVS, respectively.

The pair were joined virtually by Arup Maity, CEO of BlastAsia, and Todd Musgrove, Managing Director of Mundomo. Both Maity and Musgrove spoke live from the Philippines to the San Francisco crowd via OVS' HD video chat room.

The discussion focused on what to look for in an outsourcing partner and how to best work with a partner once selected.

One Virtual Source CEO, JR Calanoc said, "The OVS team believes the high standards of our vendors and the features of our platform will drive the quality of work performed for our customers. Our cloud-based marketplace and project workspace makes it simple for businesses to connect and collaborate."

"While it may seem obvious, making sure that your partner's priorities align with yours is extremely important. Also, just because you are 'outsourcing' a project, does not mean that you are no longer responsible for its outcome. An active partnership is key to outsourcing success," said Maity.

"Face-to-face communications via platforms like OVS can help create a better product. We have found that the most successful outcomes are when companies provide feedback to their partners frequently and consistently," adds Musgrove.

The live demo of the OVS site showed how users can register, submit a bid, review a proposal, and schedule a video conferencing meeting with vendors.

"Belief in the capabilities of our IT and IT-enabled companies, such as in software development, creatives and design, has prompted One Virtual Source to identify the Philippines as its pilot country for the platform. We are proud to be part of this collaboration," said Philippine Trade Commissioner, Michael Alfred Ignacio.

About One Virtual Source:

One Virtual Source (OVS) is a global online workplace focused on creating business to business connections. Our goal is to make it easy for companies to find, hire, and collaborate with qualified vendors on our integrated platform. Our services include web design, software development, video production, animation and illustration.

One Virtual Source's cloud-based marketplace and project workspace makes it simple for businesses to connect and collaborate. We verify each vendor that signs up for the OVS platform to ensure they have the resources and experience to support both small and large companies. Customers have access to top quality vendors; vendors have access to global opportunities.

‘Best in Class’ Benefits Initiatives Awarded at New England Employee Benefits Council Conference

Author: New England Employee Benefits Council
Dateline: Waltham, Massachusetts (WALTHAM, Mass.)  | Mon, 16 Dec 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “The New England Employee Benefits Council today announced that it has awarded five companies with Best Practices awards at its Best Practices Conference 'Employers at the Head of the Class.' The NEEBC awards were presented to companies that best exhibit innovation and creativity in the planning and delivery of their employee benefit programs.”



ARTICLE:

The New England Employee Benefits Council (NEEBC) today announced that it has awarded five companies with Best Practices awards at its Best Practices Conference "Employers at the Head of the Class." The awards were presented to companies that best exhibit innovation and creativity in the planning and delivery of their employee benefit programs.

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a Boston-based academic medical center, created a streamlined program for administering requests for leaves of absence that improved communications, reduced the turnaround time for requests and saved money. Biogen Idec, a Weston, Massachusetts-based biotechnology company, developed a robust commuter benefits program to attract top talent to its growing headquarters.

CIRCOR International, a Burlington, Massachusetts-based global manufacturer, established a comprehensive approach to health risk management that has provided a positive ROI. Lifespan, a Rhode Island-based academic health system, implemented an outcomes-based benefit plan, "Lifespan Healthy Rewards," which requires a health outcome (weight loss) not just participation for employees to receive incentives. The unique program focuses on proper care coordination to reduce obesity and smoking.

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, a Woods Hole, Massachusetts-based nonprofit research and higher education facility, successfully transitioned from an employer-based retirement benefit to an employee driven retirement benefit, including employee buy in, education, communication and vendor support.

A new awards category "Lifetime Achievement in Benefits Innovation" was presented to EMC for its use of data analytics to create a high tech and high touch approach that engages employees and their families by providing ways to manage their health with meaningful data and insight. The decade long benefits strategy has resulted in more than $300 million in health care cost avoidance for the company.

Separately, Willis of Massachusetts was named the Best Organization for Emerging Benefits Professionals by NEEBC's Next Generation Advisory Council. Willis' unique approach to developing emerging employee benefit professionals includes two key components: a two-year Risk Management Analyst program for recent college graduates and a mentoring program that provides structured professional development.

The full-day Best Practices Conference featured keynote speaker Jim Braude, Emmy(R) award winning journalist and broadcaster for WGBH and NECN, who addressed the media's responsibility for providing fair and balanced coverage on health care reform. Dolores Mitchell, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Group Insurance Commission (GIC), kicked off a lively discussion about moving health care providers from fee for service payment models to global budgets.

About The New England Employee Benefits Council:

NEEBC is a Waltham, Mass. nonprofit that advances knowledge and education in employee benefits. NEEBC's 1,250 members manage benefits for an estimated 2.5 million employees. Members include employers and providers of benefits consulting and services throughout New England.

LTC Financial Partners, LLC offers alliance opportunities to 1,000 independent advisers who wish to help longer-living Americans prepare for upcoming long-term care needs. The aim is to handle an expected glut of clients by leveraging, through the advisers, LTCFP's expertise, solution set, and outreach solutions.

The company points to America's 78 million Baby Boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964) who are moving rapidly into their retirement years.

"We expect about 70 percent of them, more than 54 million, to require long-term care services and the means to pay for them," says Denise Gott, LTCFP's National Sales Manager. "Our solution set is just what they need, but the surge is so huge, we can't possibly handle it alone. We need help from America's best advisers in the LTC and allied fields."

Once selected, the 1,000 advisers may choose one of three options:
1. Expand their current business by referring clients who need LTCFP's solution set.
2. Join LTCFP's network as an Associate, with a path to becoming an equity Partner. (This option is for experienced LTC advisers.)
3. Enter the LTC Institute, run by LTCFP, to learn the business from scratch.

In all three options, the chosen advisers may remain independent, availing themselves of LTCFP's resources, which include -
* Hundreds of LTCFP specialists available to assist them or service the clients they refer.
* Nationwide marketing and public relations support.
* Home office and online tools for client management, payments, and administration.
* Strong national-account, worksite, association, and governmental relationships.

Suitable candidates include financial advisers, elder-care attorneys, long-term care insurance agents, annuity specialists, life and health insurance agents, employee benefit brokers, and others serving the needs of mature Americans.

LTCFP's solution set includes key ways to pay for care: long-term care insurance, annuities or life insurance with LTC riders, critical illness insurance, and reverse mortgages.

Information is available from Amy Cain -- at http://www.ltcinsurancecareer.com/ or 866-471-4072.

Author: San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board
Dateline: Rancho Cucamonga, California (RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif.)  | Mon, 10 Jun 2013

A R T I C L E:

The Corporate Advocate, once a construction and real estate accounting firm, faced a challenging economy and shrinking business prospects. In 2008, its owners decided to reinvent The Corporate Advocate to a business processing outsourcing company. Chief Operating Officer Ray Blom relied on the County of San Bernardino's Workforce Investment Board (WIB) to find and train the right employees for the new business platform.

Today it is a recognized leader in its field, providing services to a wide range of industries. The Corporate Advocate has doubled in size every year since 2008.

The WIB immediately partnered with The Corporate Advocate through its On-The-Job Training program, a no-cost program that reduces hiring costs by reimbursing employers for a portion of a new hire's wage during an initial training period.

"The Workforce Investment Board's On-The-Job Training program has been a key component in our growth strategy. We had increasing client growth, but we were short of the resources needed to hire and train the new employees," said Blom. "With the help of the On-the-Job Training program, we started with a staff of two employees in 2008 and have grown to 17 staff members today. This program makes it possible for us to hire the right people at the right time. The County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board will continue to be a significant resource for The Corporate Advocate as we continue to grow."

In addition to On-The-Job training, The Corporate Advocate has also leveraged the WIB's no-cost recruitment and screening programs to identify and hire qualified employees. This program makes it possible for The Corporate Advocate to quickly promote employees to positions with more responsibility.

"On-the-Job Training provides an innovative solution to today's economic growing pains; providing the resources businesses need to develop their workforce without the financial strain of recruitment and training," said Sandy Harmsen, Executive Director of the Workforce Investment Board. "The program's goal is to obtain permanent employment for each trainee, once the employees are fully trained and have completed the probationary period."

The Workforce Investment Board offers many free services and programs to local businesses through their Business Resource Teams. The Business Resource Teams help local companies with services such as layoff aversion and process improvement. Additionally, the Business Resource Teams provide business workshops, access to On-the-Job Training and assistance with recruitment. In 2011, the Workforce Investment Board trained more than 3,300 job seekers to enter careers in high-demand industry sectors. The Business Resource Teams also visited and established relationships with more than 2,800 local businesses.

"The Workforce Investment Board is helping our economy grow and create more job opportunities for San Bernardino County residents by providing local businesses with free, specialized assistance to recruit and train the employees they need," San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors Chair Janice Rutherford said.

For information on upcoming WIB training classes and programs, contact the local Employment Resource Center or call (800) 451-JOBS; visit http://www.csb-win.org/ .
