AUHS faculty and staff at the ManagEase meeting on February 23, 2017.

American University of Health Sciences (AUHS) is pleased to announce our partnership with ManagEase, Incorporated. ManagEase visited AUHS’ campus and gave a presentation for AUHS faculty and staff in the 2nd Floor Conference Room on Thursday, February 23, 2017.

“We serve clients across all types of industries ranging from attorneys to manufacturing to schools,” said JeeAnn Petrina, the ManagEase Senior Director of HR and Payroll Services, “It’s a really exciting time for us to be able to work with AUHS and to get to know a little bit about your company, your schooling and how you guys run everything.”

Petrina began the presentation by discussing the history of her company. ManagEase has been in business since 1997 and is a leading HR outsource firm. They manage Human Resources (HR) for over 15,000 companies in America, according to Petrina. Although ManagEase is based in California, they have clients in different states, giving them knowledge of other state’s federal and regulatory laws.

Petrina explained what outsourcing does for companies and how ManagEase can be a good resource even though they will only be on site part-time.
“It’s great to partner with companies who are able to provide excellent service,” said Petrina “ManagEase employees are certified either in HR and/or payroll. We have a compliance department as well as a benefits brokerage department. We are able to put that expertise together and serve our clients with that knowledge base.”

Petrina then discussed the contract AUHS currently has with ManagEase. ManagEase will be providing HR services to AUHS. They will be on AUHS campus one and a half days per week for the first two months and the third month they will be on-site two half days per week.

“I believe AUHS will be establishing an office for us and we will be building infrastructure for the HR department for your company,” Petrina said. “So we’re really excited to have a one-stop place to go to for employees and managers.”

Petrina introduced the two other ManagEase representatives that accompanied her in this meeting- Luis Cuellar, the ManagEase Director of HR Special Projects and Mariann Hernandez, the ManagEase Senior Manager of HR & Payroll Services.

Cuellar is currently reviewing all aspects of AUHS’ HR and payroll compliance.

“I’m mainly working on the assessment for you guys now and trying to get you guys to where you want to be,” said Cuellar, “We have a lot of great information that we’ll present to your management team and I’m looking forward to taking care of a lot of those issues for you guys.”

Petrina informed the room that Hernandez will be AUHS’ on-site consultant. Hernandez has worked for ManagEase for over two years but has over 15 years of experience working in HR and payroll. Hernandez is fluid with the laws and regulations for the state of California.

“I’m really looking forward to getting to know all about AUHS and working extensively with your senior management staff and I really hope to get to know everybody,” Hernandez said, “This is a small group compared with other companies that I’ve worked with and it’s a nice for a change to work with a smaller group Once I’m here, please stop by and say, ‘Hello!'”
