Help Ensure the Success of Your New Business with a Free HR Service Grant

The unfortunate fact is that 50 percent of all small start-ups will fail within five years.

This means lost capital, lost jobs and tax base, and the lost dreams of Hawaii’s entrepreneurs.

“We know how difficult it can be to start a business,” says Barron Guss, CEO of simplicityHR by ALTRES. “Our company, too, has ridden the roller coaster of prosperity due to the economy and the daily pressures that unexpectedly come your way.”

As thanks for the support of the Hawaii business community over the past five decades, simplicityHR by ALTRES is offering simplicityHR Service Grants to help young companies succeed. The grants make business simpler by offering new, local companies one year of payroll and human resources outsourcing services for free.

This means payroll administration, HR support and compliance, benefits administration, workers’ compensation, safety and risk management, an HR information system, and more. Access to a full suite of professional services like these has been shown to increase the likelihood of business survival and success.


How to apply for a simplicityHR Service Grant

To qualify for a simplicityHR Service Grant, businesses must be less than one year old upon application date, employ 20 or less people, be registered in Hawaii, and apply for services between today and December 31, 2019.
