CaseStudyCase in Point: PROXUS' Payroll and HR Outsourcing Contributes to Chelten House Products' Growth

Case in Point: Chelten HouseOverview: Chelten House Products, Inc., is an organic food manufacturer, based in Bridgeport, N.J., poised to expand to the West Coast. They employ over 140 people, and anticipate adding an additional 40-plus in their new facility in Nevada.

Situation: Chelten House Products was faced with a challenge that many small and mid-sized companies experience as they grow: An increasing number of employees means additional Chelten House requirements related to the HR function. This company's growth also brought a need for a more automated time and attendance system. Both payroll and HR solutions needed to be comprehensive and affordable.

Solution: Since 2008, PROXUS has provided personalized service for payroll, as well as HR services. Chelten House now has a PROXUS HR Generalist three days a week and an HR Director to provide guidance on strategic and complex issues. In addition, PROXUS has provided workforce training, developed customized employment tools, assumed benefits administration and provided market analysis for Chelten House's new Nevada facility.   <<Read more>>   

"With PROXUS payroll, out of the gate we found them to be a lot more affordable when compared to our previous provider. And talk about service...anything we need, the team at PROXUS jumps and is very responsive and consistent."

Bob Paradise, Chief Financial Officer

Chelten House Products, Inc.
