Introducing an Exciting NEW Benefit for IEC Georgia & Atlanta Members
By Niel Dawson
I have been personally researching a new member benefit for months and have gotten the approval from both the Atlanta and Georgia Board of Directors to move forward with offering this exciting new benefit that is outlined on the reverse side. Please not only take the time to read the information below, but also give our representatives just 15 minutes of your time to review this new money-saving benefit with you. Certainly call me if you have any questions.
Recent changes in the healthcare industry have spotlighted the rising cost of employee benefits. Our industry may be particularly hard-hit with this, given that we are already grappling with a shortage of skilled workers. How will we handle the rising costs of running a business with the competitiveness of the job market?
Although we cannot solve the large crisis in healthcare, we can help with another common employee benefit cost — your 401(k) plan. If you are currently offering a retirement plan, would you like to eliminate your company cost and reduce your liability for the plan? If you are not currently offering a plan, do you feel like your labor needs require you to have one, but you are concerned with the administrative burden and time commitment of offering one?
IEC has a solution for both! It's called a Multiple Employer Plan. We have partnered with a retirement industry leader, BenSource/Transamerica Retirement Solutions, to bring you an employee benefit solution that’s unsurpassed for price and value.
What are the Benefits? •No cost to the employer: No start up fees, no TPA fees, no document fees — normally $3-5K per year
New Online Professional Electrician's Program (PEP) for IEC Georgia Contractors
IEC Georgia is offering a new online Professional Electrician's Program (PEP) geared toward experienced electricians that know what they are doing with their hands, but lacks the book knowledge. Now there is an online 2 year program that provides the same Journeyman certification as IEC’s 4 year apprenticeship program.
This program consists of 9-10 week modules over a 2-year period that provides electrical theory, code fundamentals, blueprint reading and more. To qualify you must have 10,000 documented hours worked in a non-helper capacity in the electrical field.
This program is designed to bring your experienced workers to a higher level of performance by adding to and honing their current skills. For more information on how to register and the schedule, click here.
