The Range of SOCA's Programs: A Win-Win for Employers and Employees 

SOCA understands the importance of empowering both employers and employees to ensure organizational success. And we believe that that journey starts with a list of excellent benefits that help small businesses compete with even the largest corporations. 

One of the key areas where SOCA adds value to businesses is through financial perks. We offer access to superior benefits, including health benefits from Anthem, Worker's Compensation consultation through Hunter Consulting, 401k plans for small businesses through our Pooled Employer Plan (PEP), payment processing solutions through Elavon, and much more. 

Additionally, SOCA recognizes the importance of nurturing and developing employees' skills. Our benefits are designed to attract and retain top talent by giving your business access to top-tier benefits including Legal Shield ID Shield, DOLR to help employees pay their student loans, and Magnify Education to further your employee's educational goals. In addition to financial benefits like 401k plans and health benefits provided by Anthem, SOCA's range of benefits make your business an attractive option for employees. .

In the next section, let's take a deeper look into SOCA's cost-savings benefits and how they can help your employees. 

Cost-Saving Benefits: More Than Just the Bottom Line 

In today's competitive business environment, finding opportunities for cost savings is crucial. However, what sets SOCA apart is its dedication to not only benefiting the bottom line but also empowering employees and adding value to their lives. Through its innovative programs, SOCA creates a win-win situation for businesses and their workforce. 

SOCA's programs offer significant financial advantages to businesses. By leveraging the collective purchasing power of its members, SOCA negotiates exclusive discounts on important business expenses such as healthcare, workers' compensation, energy, and office supplies. These cost savings help businesses increase their profitability and remain competitive in the market. 

One way this is apparent is through SOCA's Pooled Employer Plan (PEP). PEP is a huge benefit for small businesses that are looking to offer their employees 401k benefits that can go toe-to-toe with those offered by even the top corporations. SOCA's PEP allows you to join forces with other employers to spread your costs across a larger participant pool, meaning you have to contribute less to get more. 

Another benefit that helps you achieve this goal is Worker's Compensation benefits through Hunter Consulting. If an employee is hurt on the job, you want all the latest information and expertise to ensure that both your business and your employees are taken care of. When you work with Hunter Consulting through SOCA, you can be sure that your employees feel secure in knowing that should an accident happen at work they will be properly taken care of.
