For Kris Sleeper, HR Director at global technology expense management solutions provider, MDSL, meeting the personnel and benefit needs of a hyper growth company, at first, was a daunting task. The fast pace was exciting.
The customer success and revenue growth were a true statement of the value that MDSL was creating in the marketplace. But with rapid growth comes the need to attract and retain the best talent, not just in the US but also overseas. Best talent meant best culture and best benefits with a desire to automate current manual procedures to enable massive growth.
With offices in Phoenix, NY, NJ, Hawaii, Florida and the UK, MDSL had expanded quickly through acquisition. Kris joined the rapidly growing organization to drive HR and take culture and performance to the next level.

Through a full review, beni.fit identified immediate efficiencies, and offered expertise—in addition to employee benefits–on payroll, culture and programs to bring high performance to the organization.
“The decision to hire beni.fit was an easy one”, explains Kris. The work ahead though was equivalent to moving mountains. Kris was feeling great with the decision, but still laid awake at night dreading the implementation.
First up was the payroll transition, this involved down to the daily task level detail to execute well. The partnership between MDSL, ADP and beni.fit meant that zero defects were achievable and in fact delivered in the migration.

This enabled further investment in people for MDSL and fueled the ability to grow and formulate a winning culture across multiple locations and the bonus, Kris was able to sleep at night.
A $200,000 saving identified to the bottom line in the first year working with beni.fit.
With beni.fit’s help, Kris has expanded the partnership and enabled strategies that were once on paper to now become a reality within MDSL today. “They set a strategy for us to get away from a PEO situation we were outgrowing and were able to find more tangible value for the employees, and unbelievably, realize savings to the company’s bottom line.”
