WorldMarket Platform Overview-Youtube video

1099 Solutions

“When I think of clients in the healthcare industry, we know they are facing a few outside factors:

 With the aging population there is a greater demand for services in nursing facilities and home health

 Healthcare services companies are looking to quickly onboard and maintain talent pools of highly skilled health professionals

 These organizations are facing inefficient and outdated solutions to maintain 1099s resulting in increasing administrative burden

 Due to the nature of this sector, utilizing secure and reliable systems are important to stay in compliance.”

WorkMarket can help in a many ways. A few that stand out:

  • Streamlined onboarding
  • Automated vetting to quickly ensure all workers have up to date and accurate certifications, background checks, etc
  • Streamlined payment process that allows flexibility on payments, as often as daily pay if needed
  • Compliance safeguards
  • Year end 1099 administrative burden offloaded so the business can focus on generating revenue

I have included a few items that will help give you an overview of WorkMarket. Please see the 2 attachments. This video is also a quick way to highlight what we do for clients. WorkMarket Overview  Keep in mind, the system is very customized so not all clients would need everything outlined in the video. We build it out to be specific to what they need!

ADP partners with TSheets for EVV services, which will be great for our HCS/TxHmL providers who use ADP or who want to use ADP for Payroll and HR support.

Even if you have ADP already and want to upgrade your package, call or email Yusuf Sterling or Mitchell Deter at ADP ( our contacts for Twogether Consulting) to assist our HCS/TxHmL and ICF providers.
