ClearEdge IT Solutions
ClearEdge IT Solutions is extremely grateful for the trusted partnership we have with the FosterThomas Employee Benefits Solutions team, especially Mike DuVall, Mary Rogers, Beth Bulger, and Margie Bowers. The team is professional, responsive, and provides excellent customer service. Mike DuVall continues to exceed our expectations. Mike understands our niche industry and the state of the healthcare market, and ensures that he identifies and obtains the best insurance at the most competitive rates to meet our organizational needs. Last year alone he was able to negotiate with our health insurance provider to get us a 0% increase in health benefits. He is not only a trusted advisor for our company benefits, but also steps in to assist our employees with claims assistance when needed, and continues to work on our behalf until successful resolution. Beth Bulger and Margie Bowers are invaluable resources to us as we tackle complex and sensitive HR related employee matters. They provide insight and clarity to complex issues and their advice and guidance help us achieve successful outcomes. Finally, Mary Rogers provides compliance and strategy expertise and works with us to ensure that we are compliant with OFCCP regulations.

Emerging Capital Partners
"Kim Jimenez of FosterThomas has provided excellent service to our employees and myself throughout the years. Kim is very knowledgeable on the benefit plans that she works on with me, such as Medical, Dental, Prescription, LTD, Life, AD&D, FSA, Transit, etc. I never worry when our benefits renewal is due for renewal, as Kim shops the best rates and relay any pertinent information needed on a timely manner. Because of the changes to the Affordable Care Act (ACT), our company was required to make drastic changes to our policies to be ACA-compliant. Kim worked tirelessly to ensure that we had a seamless transition to the DCHealthlink platform – which we did. She did all the necessary due diligence, so that I simply had to follow the step-by-step instructions she prepared for our transition.
Kim is aligned to our goals; and is highly skilled at communicating and understanding our employees. She is always very patient, responsive to requests, and willing to assist our employees with a difficult claim or any other problem. It such a pleasure having Kim and the FosterThomas team represent our company’s needs. I would highly recommend FosterThomas to any company looking for a first-class third-party administrator." Shirlana Logan, Business Manager, Emerging Capital Partners

From the very beginning when our Account Executive, Kim Jimenez, was assigned to our company, she has been very good to work with, easy to get hold of, and quick to answer all of our questions regarding our plan and what’s available for us. While we know they have other companies much larger than ours to deal with, they are always friendly and prompt to help us with anything when we contact them. We are VERY satisfied and appreciate FosterThomas for the hard work!" Zarlasht Mirbacha, Finance/Contracts Manager, Fusion PPT

"When dealing with your insurance broker are you feeling like a small fish in a very big pond? I was until, years ago, we switched to FosterThomas. We are a ‘small fish’, only 36 employees, but I never feel like I am ignored or taken for granted when dealing with the folks at FosterThomas. As a one person Human Resources Department I need all the support I can get. FosterThomas functions like an addition to my ‘Department’. I rely on their knowledge and support for all our health, dental, vision, life, and disability insurance needs and look forward to many more years of working with them, especially in these times of change.

The HSC Pediatric Center
When I joined The HSC Pediatric Center as the Payroll/Benefits Specialist, I had limited ADP experience and no payroll experience. FosterThomas provided on site payroll support. Robin Conley, from Foster Thomas, trained me efficiently on the ADP Portal and Time & Attendance, and continues to provide support for our bi-weekly payroll. Robin is always there when I need her and is willing to complete any tasks I ask of her. I would recommend Foster Thomas to any of my colleagues needing payroll or benefits support.

Amanda F. Holley
I have been working closely with FosterThomas on some
quick turn-around positions. They are doing a really great job. The positions we
have been working on have been very hard to fill due to location and selective
customer! We just got done filling a Technical Writer slot that has been open
for months. The customer is extremely pleased with the candidate we are hiring.
Steve has been great throughout the whole process. He is always very responsive
and pleasant to work with. I am going out on vacation next week and without
hesitation he is filling in for me. He is planning to work directly with our
customer on recruiting. You just don’t know how much stress is alleviated
knowing that it will be taken care of while I am out. This type of work ethic
is what keeps me coming back to FosterThomas over and over again. HAZMED Inc.
I consider FosterThomas an extension of our Human Resources team. Mike Duvall,
our broker, has been an outstanding partner. He provides on-going consulting,
strategy and support for all our benefit lines. He advocates for Sigma Space
with all our carriers to ensure we are receiving the best value and service.
The HR consultants have assisted us in creating our Affirmative Action Plans and
most recently assisted us in successfully completing an AAP OFCCP audit. I’d
highly recommend FosterThomas to any HR Manager who is looking for a responsive,
knowledgeable, long term benefits and HR consulting partner. Sigma

FosterThomas was recommended to me by ADP. I called them, and asked for their
help in providing me the capability of payroll production for the coming Monday!
FosterThomas was able to send us staff who were payroll knowledgeable (they
were proficient with ADP’s time and attendance, HRB and payroll systems),
professional, customer service minded (I had no problem having their employees
deal directly with all staff including the physicians), organized and a pleasure
to work with. They literally saved the day for us. I had them stay
for a period of four months to produce our payrolls and train our new staff.
They made excellent recommendations to enhance both the efficiency and
effectiveness of our payroll system and helped strengthen our internal
