(That's how most folks feel about COBRA.)

The English Channel was first successfully crossed by swimmer Captain Matthew Webb in 1875. Braving the 59 degree temperatures, Capt Webb set off from England and arrived in France 21 hours and 45 minutes later. After that, it took a whopping 80 attempts before there was a second, successful crossing. Since that time, 1,731 people have traversed the channel, completing 2,256 total crossings. Hats off to all those adventurous souls!

These are the metaphors that pop in my mind as I think of how challenging the world of payroll and HCM can be, and the tools that exist to help people manage them. Recently, we have launched another webinar to help navigate the complex world of COBRA law successfully to avoid costly fees and lawsuits. With its ever-changing nature, keeping up with COBRA is something that a third-party administrator can help with. Join us for our upcoming webinar that breaks down exactly what you need to know so you can focus on what you love about your business.


To Pavement, from the Sea

Okay, we did not swim the English Channel, but the hills -- oh my gosh!  On Friday, June 7th, several of the Platinum Group team braved the inescapable hilly terrain to complete the Chamber Challenge 5K. The turnout was great, and it was beautiful to walk the streets of historic Montford. And, kudos to the Platinum kids for completing their first 5K!
