Provide us with a brief summary of your business’ services.
GMS is a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) and a Third-Party Administrator (TPA). We serve companies of all sizes nationwide and have locations across the country.

We are HR experts. We take on the administrative burdens that companies don’t have the time or expertise to effectively manage, including: Payroll and Tax, Human Resources, Employee Benefits, Risk Management, and TPA Services (for insurance brokers).

Tell us about your company’s mission and values.
Our goal is to help small business owners focus on their business, while we ensure all their “back-office” functions are in good hands. When our clients succeed, so does GMS.

What are the services you use the most (or are looking forward to using) from the Columbus Chamber?
We are looking forward to networking with local business owners, to see how we may be able to work together in mutually beneficial partnerships.

How do you stay engaged with trends that you see in your industry?
Reading industry blogs to become familiar with trends and then explore/investigate with our different service departments on how this will affect our clients and prospecting clients.

What is your company culture like?
When you dedicate yourself to your career and company, you also have to take time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. A lot of GMS employees have friendships that extend beyond the office, and that creates an engaged and enthusiastic workforce.

What does it take to be a successful employee at your company?
We look for hard working, enthusiastic, engaged employees, who are willing to work together for the success of the company as a whole.

What makes Columbus such a great place to do business?
Columbus has a very strong entrepreneurial spirit.  Different businesses in different industries pop up and Columbus allows for them to thrive almost immediately.  The professionalism that these “entrepreneurial minds” possess is top notch and allows for easy business communication.
