TIA showcases newest "Benefit Partners"

The Tire Industry Association (TIA) will present a list of benefit partners at the TIA booth (#40057) at the 2012 Global Tire Expo - Powered by TIA at the SEMA show that takes place at the Las Vegas Convention Center from October 30 to November 2. This year, TIA's booth is specifically designed to give convention attendees an inside look at the newest membership benefits offered by TIA and their partnering companies. Representatives from XcelHR, Select Benefits Communications Group, Hot Rod Processing, Inc., and Coface Collection North America, Inc, will be available to personally field questions and provide information on how their company's services can greatly increase revenue and efficiency for any tire dealership.

One of the Tire Industry Association's newest benefits is discounted PEO services from XcelHR. PEOs (Professional Employer Organizations) offer small and mid-sized businesses a suite of bundled services including payroll, benefits, workers' compensation, HR consulting, and compliance with government regulations through a single source. XcelHR's PEO program and a la carte HR consulting services are available to TIA members at an exclusive 15% discount. Learn more at www.XcelHR.com/tia or call Ave Smith toll-free at 800-776-0076.

Select Benefits Communications Group's (SBCG) focus is on designing insurance benefits for those full and part time employees not offered traditional major medical benefits. In addition to their indemnity limited medical plans, SBCG will also assist TIA members with their transition plans for complying with the requirements of the new health care reform that goes into effect in January 2014.
