High Technology in the Hills of Tennessee

Berthold Technologies was founded 70 years ago in Bad Wildbad, Germany. In the year 2000, they moved to the U.S. and opened one of their offices in Oak Ridge, TN, in the state’s science and technology corridor. Berthold specializes in radiation protection, process control, and bioanalytical equipment.

The Opportunity

Because Berthold Technologies’ Tennessee branch is a small company with 26 employees, they were struggling to find competitive insurance rates for their employees. The company also found itself struggling to manage payroll and taxes.

Berthold needed a partner that offered an all-in-one HR solution with high-level customer service. The company was looking for an HR outsourcing partner that could begin by implementing basic HR protocols and then continue to grow as Berthold Technologies’ expands.

After searching for HR companies online, Berthold officials came across LBMC Employment Partners and found that they were helpful during the transition to HR outsourcing. Berthold is now a member of LBMC EP’s PEO (Professional Employer Organization).

The Solution

For 12 years, LBMC Employment Partners has served as Berthold Technologies’ human resources team—including payroll, taxes, and insurance brokerage. Though no one at Berthold had ever worked with an HR outsourcing business before, company officials found that LBMC Employment Partners understood the level of guidance they needed to get started. When asked what makes the relationship with LBMC Employment Partners so good, Donna Scott, Operations Manager at Berthold Technologies USA says, “LBMC EP is very helpful, works well with our organization, and is prompt in answering our questions and assisting when needed.”

Beyond the basic financial and benefits management of an HR company, Berthold’s leadership has affirmed they also rely on LBMC Employment Partners to help with company structuring and organization. Scott affirms, “We would highly recommend LBMC Employment Partners to other companies on the search for an HR outsourcing partner. LBMC EP will help you stay organized, in compliance, and focused on the daily needs of running your business.”
