Humans Beyond the Resources

Optimum Employer Solutions was founded with the goal of helping small businesses survive, thrive, and compete for the best talent by giving them access to resources and benefits typically only found at very large companies. We help key executives at small businesses make their company the best it can be, and take care of their employees in the best ways possible.

Our Mission

Our mission is to be the best at helping you be your best.

We know that when we deliver our service well, you have more time to focus on your business and will become more successful. There’s nothing we’d like more than to help you do just that.

Our Core Values

We make it personal

We promise to listen to you, to know you by name, and to service you according to your unique business needs. You’re not the same as every client, just like we’re not the same as every HR company.

Clients are important

We promise you will never feel like “just a number” at Optimum. We believe that accessibility, empathy, and professional knowledge are important in every interaction we have with our clients.

We don't stop at the finish line

We want to deliver what we say we will deliver, and more. All of our associates are trained to look for ways to delight you as a client.

We take ownership

If we touch it, we promise to own it, and make sure it gets resolved. We’ll do it as fast as we can, and with as little disruption to your day as possible.

We value diversity

Great ideas come from sharing different experiences and collaborating with one another. We make it a point to seek out diversity when we hire so we can provide the most value to our clients.
