When growing a company, make sure that your employees are able to access the information relating to their benefits and entitlements as easily as possible. The happier your employees are, the more they will help you grow. Show Notes:[3.30] David shares about Eppione and how to solves an existing problem in the HR and benefits space for medium sized companies that are not able to afford one of the larger scale providers but still need a solution to manage their HR and benefits for their employees.[5.00] David is a veteran of the insurance industry and employee benefits consultant. Over the years, he has worked with many employers who really struggled with pulling out the relevant information in relation to their employees’ data. It was so torturous that he finally decided to start a company to solve this problem.[10.50] David shares that companies that are unable to afford bespoke software solutions tend to use spreadsheets to record their employees’ data and benefits and this is prone to error. In addition, it becomes hard for employees to understand their entitlements and benefits. Eppione provides an platform to collate everything under one platform and employees will be able to install the app on their own phone and get the information they need without having to reach out to the HR department. [16.35] Companies tend to use multiple softwares and services and provides their employees with the relevant information on the company’s intranet. This makes it hard for everyone to manage. By providing a one stop shop, Eppione allows the whole management process to be easy and efficient for everyone.[18.30] Current solutions tend to be very siloed to a specific country because each country has their own laws and regulations. The problem arises when a company is based in multiple jurisdictions and a company has to engage different technology solutions in each jurisdiction. Eppione overcomes this problem by allowing companies to program the specific benefits and entitlements it provides its employees and it can therefore tailor the system to their own needs in each country.[21.45] As Eppione deals with insurances, David made sure he is either appropriately licensed and regulated in the relevant jurisdictions or have the right partners who can represent them otherwise.[27.40] David stresses the importance of using technology when growing a business, and to be able to give employees access to the information that they need.
