West Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) December 05, 2013
Los Angeles-based Human Resources Outsourcing firm CPEhr announced today that it passed the SSAE 16 audit verifying the quality and security of the Human Resources processing systems offered by the company. The meticulous audit process began in August 2012 and concluded six months later in January 2013. It was conducted by an independent accounting firm that specializes in Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and regulations.
SSAE 16 (formerly SAS 70) is an internationally recognized third party assurance audit designed for service organizations. Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 16 (SSAE 16 or SOC 1) effectively replaced SAS 70 on June 15, 2011.
There are many reasons why CPEhr, as a leading provider of complex Human Resources services, decided to obtain an SSAE 16 report. Essentially, the report will provide valued clients a high level of assurance that appropriate controls are in place. Such operating effectiveness is the standard which differentiates CPEhr from its competitors.
CPEhr’s CFO, Grace Drulias, who incidentally was formerly a client, can relate to both sides of the equation. “As a financial professional and the decision maker who had brought CPEhr into my former business,” states Drulius, “I recognize the importance of having confidence in your human resources partner. I firmly believe that the SSAE 16 authorization gives our clients a third party endorsement of the top-of-the-line infrastructure and operating procedures to which our organization adheres.”
CPEhr will make a copy of its SSAE 16 audit report available to clients upon request.
Celebrating its 30th anniversary, CPEhr provides human resources solutions to over 75,000 employees through a high-touch service model. Services include employment compliance, HR administration, payroll management, training, benefits administration and workers’ compensation insurance.
