Protecting your employees will save you money!
Did you know victims of identity theft typically spend more than 170 hours over two years trying to clean up the mess? Since those hours are usually taken during the business day, resulting in decreased productivity and absenteeism, the smart thing to do is to be pro active enough to protect your employees from identity theft in the first place.
According to Philip Ernest in the August 10, 2009 edition of the Fort Worth Business Press “The Society for Human Resource Management has reported that legal service plans are a valued human resource benefit and one of the fastest growing voluntary benefits in recent years.”
An employer can choose whether or not to pay for this benefit. The key is to make the protection available, and have a mandatory employee meeting on the legal services and identity theft protection you are making available, similar to what most employers do for health insurance. Greg Roderick, CEO of Frontier Management, says that his employees “feel like the company’s valuing them more, and it’s very personal.”
That’s why many companies choose ID Theft Solutions of America as an answer for their employee offerings. Unlike credit monitoring services that just inform you when someone has already compromised an identity, our proactive system protects from all facets of Identity Theft before, during and after the crime occurs! You can add ID Theft Solutions of America’s benefit offerings to your existing benefits package at any time during the year, not just during open enrollment!
