Today we’d like to introduce you to Matt Taylor.
Matt, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I got started back in 2002, when I was brought into the insurance industry by one of my partners, Marty Levy. He mentored me for about five years and I really had the chance to learn the ins and outs of the business. He gave me the platform to grow and, in 2008, I was thrilled to become a partner in the company. When 2010 hit, we saw a major change in the healthcare industry when the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was passed. We worked quickly and remained agile in order to stay ahead of the industry curve. Within months, we added HR workforce automation, payroll, and HR consulting to round out the offerings that we provide employers to help them support and grow their business.
Has it been a smooth road?
I wish I could say it has been a smooth road, it’s been a lot of fun but we’ve had our fair share of challenges. When I first came onboard in 2002, we had five employees now we have about 25 employees. The challenges of managing a growing team–keeping everyone on the same page while bringing in new people, introducing new processes–and adapting to a constantly changing industry hasn’t been easy. However, aided by our unceasing work ethic, strong company culture, and loyal clients, we’ve been able to tackle every bump in the road and have fun doing it.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the CorpStrat story. Tell us more about the business.
In our business we provide employee benefit plans, payroll, HR workforce automation, and HR consulting to businesses that have 10 to 500 employees. We’re known for providing high-end tools for companies to better manage their workforce. We believe in the value of recruiting, retaining, and rewarding great employees because it leads to building powerful teams with more efficient processes.
We are best known for the service we provide as well as our advisory support. At CorpStrat, we want to ensure that all of our experts are working in the same location to synergize. We offer top-notch tools, top-notch technology, and top-notch people to help solve problems exactly when our clients need it most. This means when you work with us, you won’t run into 800 numbers that lead to an endless array of unhelpful automated call center responses. Instead, every time you call us, you’ll get to speak to an actual person who can provide you with exactly the information or solution you need – with an ‘I’m on it’ attitude.
I firmly believe that we offer a superior product, superior support, and superior knowledge. This is why we don’t play a pricing game in the market and compete on price; we want to work with people who truly value what we bring to the table. It’s like when you’re looking to buy a car, you can go out and buy a Toyota or a Mercedes–they both basically do the same thing. The primary difference is that the people who purchase that Mercedes are looking for a premium experience and that’s what we provide for our clients: the Benz experience.
How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
I see our industry evolving a lot over the coming years as companies grow increasingly weary of call centers. I believe employers have a desire to move towards more personalized, reliable, on-demand services that put the best tools and products right at their fingertips. Businesses will start to get leaner and outsource more of their core HR efficiencies. Currently, HR Workforce automation is already a massive industry, but in the coming years, it will take an even bigger hold of workforces; I see it completely transforming how employers communicate with their staff and run their businesses.
