Jim Bennett's Plumbing

Challenge

High turnover of plumbing employees.

Solution

TriNet provides comprehensive benefit offerings that help recruit and retain top talent while driving high employee satisfaction.

There are so many things that come up in human resources that you need a go-to place and TriNet has provided that. It is just so effective in a total package.

Jim Bennett, Owner

Our company started in 1969. We started with a borrowed 1950 Chevrolet pickup truck and no money and we went in the plumbing business and the rest is history. My mission was then and it still today is to serve my customers and never forget that the customer is the reason for my business.

Sometimes in this type of work where it's labor-based, your plumbing employees circulate. So we were looking for a way to improve upon the things that we offer to the employee, and in going to TriNet, we were able to accomplish that. I'll have some of these employees come back and say, "Oh, so you all are doing that now," whether it's dental or whether it's vision or even those accident-type policies that cover them, those types of things that we may not have had the last time their go around was here. But they're here to stay with us now because TriNet has put them in place.

We have a 401(k) program and we have a lot of different perks, if you will, things that a small company would never be able to offer. TriNet's been a very, very good tool for us because so many small companies get in trouble with payroll taxes, and we're able to take care of our payroll, we take care of our taxes, it's a win-win for us.

There is so many things that come up in human resources that you need a go-to place and TriNet has provided that. It is just so effective in a total package. TriNet is improving all the time, is what I find. And so because of that, Jim Bennett's Plumbing is improving all the time. You know, if you do things that are for the benefit of the company, it takes care of everything else, and I think TriNet has been a major tool in allowing that to happen so that we can direct our attention to important things that make Jim Bennett's Plumbing what it is.
