FEATURING CHRISTOPHER COLUCCIO, CEO & KEITH NEWELL, CFO AT TECHWORKS CONSULTING, INC. TELL US ABOUT HOW YOU/YOUR COMPANY STARTED. I’ve always had an “itch” to own my own business. My father is a building contractor, one brother owned a pharmacy and another owned a metal box manufacturing company in CT. After 25 years in manufacturing, working for others, including Sikorsky Aircraft, it was time for me to start my own gig. I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for manufacturing, a passion for helping others, especially those at the lower wage levels, so starting a manufacturing consultancy, sharing our knowledge and helping low skill workers keep jobs and manufacturers to thrive in the high cost Northeast was a natural! I started out in 2009 in the great recession. Like many start ups, I had to work other jobs while getting the business up and running, struggled in the early years, but eventually hit our stride.

WHAT WAS A TURNING POINT FOR YOU/YOUR COMPANY? Our business has 3 core services: Safety, Quality & Efficiency improvement services for manufacturers, distributors and construction. At the start, we just had Efficiency (Lean Six Sigma, Inventory, Warehouse Management). As we saw the need at manufacturers, we added the Quality & Safety services. A major turning point happened a few years ago when I attended a conference where John Warrillow, author of “Built to Sell” talked about creating value in your company. He said you should start thinking about selling your company the day you start it. The revelation for me was most of my business was transactional with little, if any recurring revenue. You do a project, complete it and then on to the next. What that created was a rollercoaster of revenue rather than steady revenue. The pivot we did a few years ago was to put more focus on recurring revenue. That focus saved us during the pandemic since we continued to provide monthly Environmental, Health & Safety services while our Quality & Efficiency services fell off. Many of our manufacturing & distribution customers did not have the time to work on quality & process improvement, were concerned about allowing anyone but their own essential workers needed to get production out, so put off improvement efforts. In the Fall of 2020, those who put off their improvement efforts off, began calling again to get their on time delivery rates up, restore their profit margins and go after those Quality certifications their customers are asking for.

“..We serve our customers with Integrity, Honesty and Excellence. Our services are provided by the best in the business. Our Certified Safety Professionals, Quality Professionals, Industrial Engineers and Manufacturing consultants all have decades of experience improving the bottom line of our customers.”

WHAT IS YOUR COMPANY’S PHILOSOPHY?

February 2021 - The HIA-LI Reporter Page 6

Our mission at Summit Safety & Efficiency Solutions is to help manufacturers, distributors and construction to thrive in the high cost Northeast. We do this by helping them improve Safety, Quality and Efficiency. By helping these businesses, we support them in providing high paying jobs to low, middle and high skill workers. We seek to be partners to our customers building a long term, mutually beneficial relationship. As a West Point graduate, we serve our customers with Integrity, Honesty and Excellence.

HIA-LI: BUSINESS STEPS UP

T

hrough these unprecedented times, many Long island businesses have risen to the occasion to demonstrate their support. as part of a new initiative called “HIA-LI: Business Steps Up,” we will be showcasing the things members are doing to help their fellow businesses, to support public health, or help the community at large.

It Takes “Big” Ideas To Fight The Coronavirus As Long Island turns the corner towards economic recovery towards a post-COVID-19 era, Best Ideas Group, Inc. (BIG) is busy transforming itself by providing uniquely valuable and proprietary new products, programs, concepts, and services not generally available in the traditional marketplace. “Since our inception, we have always functioned on the basis of ‘doing good by doing right,’” said Charles Horn, Co-Founder of the Best Ideas Group, Inc., based in Smithtown. “So, during these unprecedented, uncertain, and dangerous times, we have decided to carry that philosophy to the next level by doing good and right. Known by the motto ‘Smart Solutions, Unexpected Results,’ we felt we were in the perfect position to truly make a difference.”

Charles Horn Co-Founder of the Best Ideas Group, Inc

This is how BIG quickly became a major provider of a variety of different PPE products with a strong emphasis on a very special, almost impossible-tofind, heavily-concentrated high-grade germicidal disinfectant that utilizes Quaternary ammonium compounds. According to Horn, “This compound – commonly referred to as Quat – works against viruses by stripping them of their lipid envelope, leaving them unable to penetrate cells. This results in the disruption of the bacteria cell wall and eventual death to the microbe.” As a result, Horn added, it’s a product in high demand. In fact, when a US military aircraft carrier recently needed immediate sanitation and disinfection, this is the product they turned to

because it provides maximum effectiveness against a wide variety of microorganisms. Compared to traditional off-the-shelf non-Quat bleach-based products, it has a pleasant floral herbal aroma with a longer shelf life. It’s also a neutral pH formula, so no wiping is required, nor will any unpleasant or sticky residue be left behind. In addition, the product is so highly concentrated that it requires only one ounce of dilution to turn a gallon of water into a gallon of disinfectant. Some other PPE products BIG is involved with are gloves, masks, and gowns. Their global marketplace includes medical offices, hospitals, laboratories, surgical and dialysis centers, commercial, industrial, institutional, schools, transportation, special events, sports arenas, governments, military, residential, and small business. Added Horn, “We are very excited to be in the thick of things, helping the world stay healthy and safe.” Charles Horn, a US Army veteran, graduated with a B.S. degree in accounting and business law from New York University. He is a longtime member of the CEO Club, Int’l where he has served as a roundtable leader and a member of the Presidential Advisory Committee where about a dozen CEOs become an advisory board member for each other’s company in recognition for several successful entrepreneurial achievements and concepts.

Free Adapts Programs For Individuals With Disabilities During COVID-19 Pandemic The COVID-19 pandemic has been a time for reinvention and creativity for many nonprofit organizations that usually serve their participants in-person. However, many face-toface services have been suspended or canceled due to the threat of infection.

Dr. Christopher D. Long President of FREE

“We support our team members and we support the people we have the duty to serve – people who are vulnerable, people who need our kindness, protection, and guidance every single

“We have reinvented day service opportunities that our men, women, and families rely upon and value while installing all precautions that protect everyone’s health and well-being,” said Dr. Christopher D. Long, President of FREE. “We’ve proven that alternate models of support can be implemented and look forward to sharing new ideas with the FREE community in the very near future.” Family Residences and Essential Enterprises, Inc. was founded in 1977. They support more than 4,000 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, mental illness, and traumatic brain injury. It is FREE’s mission to help individuals of all abilities realize their full potential. FREE provides a diverse array of supports and services including: housing; recovery services; transition to work; employment; day, community, and family services; respite; crisis services; education and after school support; specialty health services; and advocacy.

The not-for-profit Family Residences and Essential Enterprises, Inc. (FREE) has met this challenge with much resourcefulness as they adapted their day programs using virtual learning and telehealth. Using Zoom, FREE’s day program now has Karaoke singalongs, holds play practice for “Mama Mia,” offers remote classes on money management, American Sign Language, acting, vocal lessons, science, history, zumba, yoga, as well as social connections. They’ve also created remote ZOOM groups utilizing various apps and internet tools to engage individuals in music and art as a form of therapy and hold telehealth sessions. With staff collaborating with participants, a robust schedule has been developed, providing a wide choice of activities.

keepingcurrent Between the Hammer and the Anvil: Navigating a Ransomware Attack amid Federal Advisories By Leora F. Ardizzone Of Counsel Ruskin Moscou Faltischek P.C. 516-663-6600 lardizzone@rmfpc.com https://rmfpc.com/attorneys/ leora-f-ardizzone/

February 2021 - The HIA-LI Reporter Page 8

Ransomware has been around for years but what was once a nuisance perpetrated by novice hackers, has now become a global criminal enterprise, holding big and small businesses, hospitals, local governments and school districts hostage, demanding and collecting billions of dollars from victims. In response to this growing threat to business operations and to data privacy, several federal agencies have issued advisories regarding ransomware. On October 1, 2020, the Department of the Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”), issued an advisory highlighting sanctions risks associated with payments by victims of ransom to cybercriminals. Closing the month, on October 29, 2020, in a rare joint cybersecurity advisory (“Joint Advisory”) issued by the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (“CISA”), Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”) and the Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”) warning hospitals and health care providers of “…credible information of an increased and imminent cybercrime threat to U.S. hospitals and healthcare providers.” The OFAC Advisory In response to the growing frequency, cost and damage caused by cybercriminals launching ransomware attacks against U.S. interests, the OFAC advisory significantly notes the following: • OFAC has designated a number of malicious cyber criminals under its cyber sanctions program. • U.S. persons are generally prohibited from engaging in transactions, directly or indirectly, with individuals or entities on OFAC’s Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List (SDN List), other blocked persons, and those covered by comprehensive country or region embargoes. • Sanctions may be imposed, not just on the cyber threat actors, but also on others who materially assist, sponsor, or provide financial, material, or technological support for the threat actors’ criminal activities. • Paying ransom emboldens cyber criminals to continue to engage in such activities.

Of note, the OFACS advisory does not ban payment of ransoms. Rather, it underscores the importance of the investigation of an attack to confirm that if a payment of a ransom is made, that it is not made to a sanctioned organization or a group suspected of being tied to a sanctioned organization, and that any payment does not violate money laundering laws. In addition, in light of the risk of significant penalties, the OFACS advisory highlights sanction compliance, and cooperating with law enforcement as “significant mitigating” factors.

The OFACS advisory focuses on financial institutions, and while not every ransomware attack needs to be reported to OFACS, the advisory lists the following agencies that victims of a ransomware attack should consider contacting before making payment of any ransom: • U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control • Sanctions Compliance and Evaluation Division: ofac_feedback@treasury. gov; (202) 622-2490 / (800) 540-6322 • Licensing Division: https://licensing.ofac.treas.gov/; (202) 622-2480 • U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Cybersecurity and Critical Infrastructure Protection (OCCIP): OCCIP-Coord@treasury.gov; (202) 6223000 • Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN): FinCEN Regulatory Support Section: frc@fincen.gov • Federal Bureau of Investigation Cyber Task Force: https://www.ic3.gov/ default.aspx; www.fbi.gov/contact-us/field

details behind these recent attacks, including providing the reader with indicators of compromise including commonly used directories in Windows, as well as file names and plugins. The advisory warns that cybercriminals use malware, which is frequently deployed via phishing campaigns. The advisory explains that these malwares are deployed when emails with malicious links or malicious attachments are opened and installed in the victim’s computer. The malware thus installed is then used to deploy ransomware. The advisory focuses on the Ryuk ransomware which has been used with growing frequency in the last month. The Ryuk ransomware uses tools native to windows, to move within a victim’s network. Once deployed, Ryuk encrypts data, seeks to disable any back-ups and uninstall security applications that might prevent the ransomware from executing. In the case of Ryuk, the advisory states that ransom note is either delivered with the ransomware or the demand is made with the first contact with the cyber criminals. The advisory includes a number of security measures that the health care sector should be employing to protect itself from these attacks. These measures include, but are not limited to, the following:

• Conducting a gap assessment and patching any vulnerabilities in your business continuity plans to ensure that essential functions will be available through a cyber-attack; • Patch operating systems as soon as updates are released; • Regularly change passwords and avoid reusing passwords for different accounts; • Use multi-factor authentication wherever possible;

• U.S. Secret Service Cyber Fraud Task Force: www.secretservice.gov/ investigation/#field

• Audit user accounts with administrative privileges and configure access controls with the least privilege necessary;

• Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency: https://us-cert.cisa.gov/ forms/report

• Identify critical assets, such as electronic medical record systems, and create back-ups of these systems that are housed offline from the network;

• Homeland Security Investigations Field Office: https://www.ice.gov/contact/ hsi

• Set antivirus and antimalware solutions to update automatically and run scans regularly.

The Joint Advisory

If you have been attacked by ransomware, it is important to engage counsel experienced in cybersecurity, sanctions compliance and working with law enforcement. At RMF, we provide you with an informed, experienced and a confident partner in navigating this rapidly evolving area.

The CISA/FBI/HHS joint advisory reflects the government’s concern that cyber-attacks against hospitals and other healthcare providers are gaining in frequency during the pandemic. This comes at a time where hospitals and health care providers are already burdened by pandemic related stresses. The advisory seeks to educate hospitals and healthcare providers of the technical

In their book Beyond Entrepreneurship 2.0 – updated and rereleased in December2020, Jim Collins and Bill Lazier quote history professor Edward T. O’Donnell, who said “History is the study of surprises,” before opining themselves that “If the first two decades of the 21st century have taught us anything, it’s that uncertainty is chronic; instability is permanent; disruption is common; and we can neither predict nor govern events. There will be no ‘new normal’; there will only be a continuous series of ‘not normal’ episodes, defying prediction and unforeseen by most of us until they happen.” If they’re correct, then not only is the notion of a “return to normal” a fantasy, but so is the idea of a “new normal.” That means that as we continue into 2021, we have to be prepared for anything at home and at work. Most employers successfully adapted during the early days of COVID as they scrambled to ensure employee safety, stability and security. That meant distributing hand sanitizer and masks, limiting meeting room capacities, closing the lunchroom, adding Plexiglas barriers and implementing new remote working arrangements that simultaneously tested our technological prowess and commitment to work-life balance. Businesses that responded slowly or halfheartedly lost trust, confidence and probably some talented employees. On the other hand, those who managed 2020 well enjoyed better connections to their employees, more loyalty, better productivity and maybe even bigger revenues. As we mark the one year anniversary of COVID’s arrival in the U.S., there’s lots of uncertainty, but here are a few solid timetested strategies that can help businesses navigate the next

phase of the pandemic:

Make health and wellbeing a focal point. COVID is first a biological phenomenon that has raised awareness about personal hygiene and underlying health conditions like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and obesity that multiply one’s risk for serious illness. We’ve also listened to stories about otherwise healthy 30-somethings who wound up on ventilators and by now, we all know multiple people who have died from COVID. Employers should continue to encourage COVID testing, provide evidence-based information about vaccines, educate staff about their health benefits and promote wellness activities. Discounts at local gyms and yoga studios, healthy diet and cooking webinars, properly distanced outdoor walks and hikes all make a difference. Understand that mental health is a key part of wellbeing. Federal surveys have found that more than 40 percent of Americans are reporting an adverse mental health or behavioral health condition – typically anxiety or depression – that’s impacting their daily lives. More than 13 percent say they have started or increased their use of drugs or alcohol to cope with stress or emotions related to COVID-19 and a whopping 31 percent of those caring for another adult – usually an elderly parent – told interviewers they had “seriously considered” suicide in the last 30 days. Encourage your staff to take mental health days off without shame. Promote the use of meditation apps and online therapy services, along with local nonprofit counseling centers and support groups. If your company doesn’t have an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) that offers free and confidential assessments, short-term counseling, referrals, and follow-up services to employees who have personal and/or work-related problems, check out HIA member National EAP. Families come first. Overwhelmed parents – especially those who are single or have kids with special needs – are being forced to choose between their children, their jobs and their own wellbeing as they juggle remote learning and a persistent lack of childcare.

A 2020 Kaiser Family Foundation survey found that 35 percent of surveyed mothers said back-to-school stress/worry had a “major” impact on their mental health and Motherly’s 2020 State of Motherhood Survey found that 89 percent of mothers surveyed said they didn’t feel society sufficiently supports moms. The COVID-19 pandemic is making moms feel even worse, and the biggest source of stress among working moms, not surprisingly, is inadequate childcare. Employers should speak out about the need for universal Pre-K, advocate for meaningful child care alternatives, and perhaps offer subsidies. At the very least, offer flexibility and meaningful accommodations; formal and informal programs for paid, partially paid and unpaid leave; and maintain a thoughtful dialogue about strategies for reconciling work and family demands. Promote workplace effectiveness. Eliminate unnecessary Zoom meetings, cap the length of conference calls, set clear expectations for email and texting and create guidelines for when the workday formally begins and ends. Figure out who truly needs to work in a traditional office setting, who can continue to work remotely, and consider a hybrid model for virtually everyone. Ask employees what they prefer and how they work best. If you’re forcing staff back into an office environment solely to keep better tabs on what they’re doing, there’s a bigger problem. For business owners, leaders and managers looking for ways to boost morale, achieve lasting success, and win a little bit of peace in the midst of chaos, uncertainty and disruption, the charge is clear: continue to be present, empathetic, decisive, communicative and fully transparent. Then practice what you preach and we’ll all emerge healthier, stronger and better positioned for whatever comes next. Dr. Jeffrey L. Reynolds is the President/CEO of Family and Children’s Association (FCA), one of Long Island’s oldest and largest nonprofits serving 30,000 local families annually.

keepingcurrent Benefits of Remote Internships

By Maya Brown

Senior Communications Intern Stony Brook University Career Center Contact: Crystal Diaz Crystal.M.Diaz@stonybrook.edu 631-632-6089

Remote internships have helped close the accessibility gap for students and young adults who are applying to internships, as travel and lodging expenses are eliminated since the work can be done from their home. Due to the removal of traveling, there is also no need to beat the rush of possible traffic, leading to a much calmer start to a shift and an overall improvement on quality of life. Internships offered in a remote setting also can increase the size of the talent pool for employers, as employees can be from anywhere in the world, not just a particular town or state. Remote internships can offer valuable experience just as an on-site internship can. Many companies and

The Career Center has also recently launched the Center for Remote Internships and Experiential Learning as an important resource for employers to turn to. Through the center, employers can learn more about recruiting and supervising remotely.

Benefits of Remote Internships 1. Independence of the way that you work as in intern with little to no micro-managing 2. Being able to add digital literacy as a new resume skill and talking point in job and internship interviews 3. Added accessibility and opportunity for various potential employees 4. More flexibility to your work schedule 5. Easier to network with various employees to make more connections Studies have also shown an increase in productivity. Teleworkers were 20 to 25% more productive than office-based employees, according to a study by Global Workplace Analytics. Additionally, a study by TINYpulse showed that remote workers felt an astonishing 91% more productive when they worked remotely.

Many students have also benefited from virtual internships and have been successful with reaching their goal, myself included. During the Fall 2020 semester, I had the opportunity to intern remotely with CNN Audio and I further developed my communication skills, networked with various media professionals and helped script and edit podcasts - all through working at home. It also gave me more flexibility in creating my schedule and feeling more in control.

There are also many transferable skills that can be gained during a remote internship.

Even though the application process, onboarding process and training or orientation may be different, they can still be just as effective and produce beneficial experiences.

Even though most remote internships began as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, many companies continue to implement them, as it has proven to be both successful and accessible. Some have even decided to let employees work remotely permanently due to the added benefits.

In 2020, we saw a rise in everything remote and virtual - from our daily tasks to jobs and internships. Simultaneously, we also saw a rise in applications for virtual internships because of the many benefits that are attached to the remote setting including flexibility, independence and affordability.

organizations have transitioned their internship programs into a virtual setting to accommodate for the ongoing pandemic. Healthcare companies that had to suspend on-site internships have also created certification programs, including Northwell Health. “The program was amazing and I was exposed to so many professions that I didn’t know existed. I had the opportunity to listen to surgeons, nurses, doctors and technicians speak about their careers. Being really exposed to new professions opened my mind to new opportunities.” - Leslie Campo Catalan, a junior health science and biology double major at Stony Brook University


keepingcurrent Biden Should Consider Convening A New Presidential Commission To Respond To Food Insecurity For 50 Million Americans Americans are struggling to put nutritious food on their tables. When Harry founded Long Island Cares in 1980, he wanted the organization to focus on the many root causes of hunger, as well as, what programs and policies could improve self-sufficiency for families in need.

By Paule T. Pachter, A.C.S.W., L.M.S.W.

The last time that a President of the United States convened a Commission on Hunger was in September of 1978, when the late singer, Grammy Award winning songwriter, and hunger activist Harry Chapin successfully lobbied former President Jimmy Carter to convene such a group to which Chapin was appointed to and was the only member to attend 100% of their meetings. Chapin also used the next two-years from 1978 to 1980 to establish Long Island Cares, Inc. our region’s very first food bank that has been on the front lines in responding to a projected 63% increase in food insecurity brought about by unemployment, furloughs and illness as the result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

February 2021 - The HIA-LI Reporter Page 12

Since March 13, 2020, Long Island Cares, Inc.-The Harry Chapin Regional Food Bank has delivered more than 17 million pounds of emergency food or 15 million meals to assist 162,551 Long Islanders struggling with food insecurity and have visited the regional food bank for the very first time as a result of the

COVID-19 pandemic. One way the United States can respond to increases in food insecurity is through a comprehensive approach towards reducing food insecurity across the country, and that is why Long Island Cares, WHY Hunger, Long Island Association, the Chapin Foundation and Alexis and Billy Joel are supporting our endorsing our request of the new President and Vice President to convene a new Presidential Commission on Hunger and Food Insecurity in the United States following their first 100 days in office. This year, Long Island Cares will commemorate the 40th Anniversary of Harry Chapin’s passing on July 16, 2021. It’s been more than four decades since Harry served on President Carter’s Presidential Commission on Hunger and the U.S. needs to take a serious look at why more than 50 million

PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY FOR THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY 516.848.9600 • bobgiglionephotography@outlook.com

Among the focuses of a new Commission would be to review existing authorities and programs, public and private, national and international, which address the problems of food insecurity, and to assess the extent to which these programs are meeting their objectives. The Commission could also develop recommendations to significantly reduce food insecurity and develop options to harness available resources including, a review of current policies that are effective in lifting people out of poverty. A new Commission can conduct public hearings, issue reports and develop new projects for our nation to better understand why food insecurity is on the rise across all fifty states. I believe that President Biden and Vice-President Harris are aware of the increases in food insecurity across our nation, and I know that both of them are familiar with the work of our food banks and food pantries in responding to their communities in need. I’m optimistic that perhaps following their inauguration they will assign a White House staff person to follow-up with us on the proposal.

COMMITTEE CORNER HIA-LI Convenes New Committee on Corporate Social Responsibility: Enhancing Dialogue and Collaboration between the Nonprofit and for Profit Sectors and what benefits exist for companies and nonprofit organizations working together. Members have the opportunity to meet with key decision makers representing local companies that have a significant CSR profile, and the HIA-LI will support these efforts by showcasing excellent examples of CSR within the HIA-LI community.

By Lee Silberman, CEO, Habitat for Humanity Suffolk and Paule Pachter CEO, Long Island Cares, Inc.-The Harry Chapin Regional Food Bank

Corporate social responsibility describes a company’s promise to maintain beneficial and ethical practices in each aspect of business and is often illustrated by the process by which a company uses its position to promote charitable acts for the public good. By implementing corporate social responsibility practices, businesses and corporations can attract talented candidates who share the same values as their company. Many companies on Long Island sponsor or underwrite annual fundraisers and special events to support local charities that address a variety of issues including, children’s health services, disability programs, Veterans causes, affordable housing, and hunger and food insecurity. A number of corporations offer an internship program for vulnerable youth, and some job-seekers might be more drawn to your company because of your social responsibility portfolio. Demonstrating corporate social responsibility can also help a company build their customer base and encourage existing customers to continue purchasing their products and services. For instance, some customers might continue to return because they want to help support a

company’s initiatives to fund a local charity or environmental project, or they could continue to buy from a business because they know that they value employee welfare. Corporate social responsibility can also be helpful in spreading awareness about one’s company, further enhancing your brand identity and associating it with initiatives geared toward the greater good. The HIA-LI has convened a new Committee on Corporate Social Responsibility that is being cochaired by Lee Silberman, CEO of Habitat for Humanity Suffolk and Paule Pachter, CEO of Long Island Cares, Inc. The committee focuses on establishing a proactive dialogue about how CSR is employed by Long Island companies

If a business maintains corporate social responsibility as a part of its identity, then it might also encourage its employees to take on the same beliefs and values within their communities and beyond. Therefore, by establishing corporate social responsibility within a company’s business practices, corporations have the potential to help employees transform themselves into well-rounded members of communities who can make a difference on an individual level. By using corporate social responsibility to promote charitable initiatives at a local, national or international scale, a company can promote awareness about those initiatives to its customers and the existing community thereby encouraging others to support or donate to charities as well. Our new CSR Committee is scheduling their meetings for the 2021 program year, and if you would like to participate, please contact the HIALI offices.

How Does a PEO Simplify HR Compliance? By Kerry Kaiser Marketing Specialist Prestige Employee Administrators, Inc. (516) 692-8505 – Main (917) 719-7302 – Direct/Fax kkaiser@prestigepeo.com www.prestigepeo.com

New research from McBassi & Company shows that businesses that partnered with a professional employer organization (or “PEO”) since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic are 91% less likely to be temporarily closed, and 60% less likely to have permanently closed. Much of this can be attributed to a PEO’s role in helping businesses maintain compliance with complex local, state, and federal regulations. The ongoing pandemic only further highlights the value of partnering with a PEO, especially as compliance becomes a larger challenge for businesses.

Shift Liability to the Experts A PEO shares a co-employment relationship with its clients, which means clients are relieved of many of the liabilities typically associated with operating a business. Partnership with a PEO shifts all that risk over to the PEO, but it’s important to choose the right one – only 1% of PEOs maintain all three industry certifications that demonstrate financial stability. Be sure to partner with a PEO who maintains these certifications; doing so will fully protect your business in a worstcase scenario. A triple-certified PEO automatically absorbs a number of liabilities, while working to ensure each client maintains compliance with host of local, state, and federal laws – many of which may be specific to a particular business. Keep Current with Compliance Changes in Real-Time Non-compliance can be costly or even detrimental to businesses, so it’s best to leave compliance to

the experts. Whether your business is fully remote or struggling to maintain an on-site workforce, a PEO can provide essential advice and guidance to help your business adapt to a new normal. A PEO makes it easier for businesses to navigate difficult questions surrounding the pandemic, such as vaccine requirements or accommodations for employees with disabilities. With a PEO, businesses are armed with the support of certified specialists who work around the clock to keep up to date with all policy changes as they happen. They handle all the administrative work required to keep the business compliant, saving your business both time and money. Even day-to-day HR compliance can be overwhelming. With a global health crisis thrown in the mix, the mass confusion surrounding compliance is understandable. As we look work through another year with no end to the pandemic in sight, it’s more important than ever for businesses to consider the support of a PEO. PrestigePEO empowers small and mid-sized businesses to simplify HR by offering end-to-end support for HR compliance, employee benefits management, payroll administration, and more. Contact PrestigePEO today to learn how we can help you maintain compliance and simplify HR.

February 2021 - The HIA-LI Reporter Page 25

Businesses all around the world have essentially been operating in crisis-mode since the beginning of 2020. From mandatory closures to continuously evolving regulations around workplace safety, the past year has been a major test of endurance, stability, and pure grit – and it continues as we head further into 2021.

Rather than a replacement for an HR department, a PEO serves as an extension of it. A PEO works with internal HR professionals and management to help manage critical HR functions on behalf of businesses of all kinds, including risk and compliance.

keepingcurrent How To Deal With The Winter Blues In The Pandemic By Wendy Lang

South Shore Child Guidance Center Contact: Melissa Rose | Vice President (631) 882-7938 melissa@marketingworkspr.com marketingworkspr.com

In a typical year, the post-holiday/winter blues set in about now. The festive decorations are gone, there are no celebrations to look forward to, the days are short, it’s cold outside and the credit card bills from holiday spending are arriving. This year is anything but typical, and the winter blues may be even more pronounced this year because of the pandemic, according to Wendy Lang, Director of the new Adult Mental Health Clinic, which opened Jan. 1 at South Shore Child Guidance Center in Freeport. South Shore is part of EPIC Long Island, which also operates a full-service mental health clinic in East Meadow. “The pandemic has increased symptoms of anxiety and depressive disorders in the community,” Ms. Lang said. In addition to fear of the virus and how it may impact their own health or that of their loved ones, many people are dealing with feelings of isolation due to social distancing and financial stress due to losses of jobs and businesses. These stressors can lead to feelings of despair, a relapse of substance abuse and thoughts of suicide. Add to that the fact that mass vaccinations are still months away and a long, dark winter looms. Lang

has some recommendations for coping with the postholiday/winter blues in 2021: Stay connected: Even if you can’t see people in person, you can speak to them on the phone or on video chat programs like Zoom. Make an effort to call friends and relatives, and take the initiative to organize a group Zoom event. Having a social event to look forward to – even if it’s virtual – may help lift not only your spirits, but the spirits of others who may also need a boost. Get outside: Sunshine and fresh air can help boost your mood. Bundle up and go outside in the middle of the day, even if it’s just for 15 minutes. Check the long-range forecast to plan longer outings on days when the temperature will be warmer. Exercise: Daily exercise can help lift your mood, as endorphins are released by the body when you work out. If you are healthy enough for exercise, develop a workout regimen of at least 30 minutes per day. The pandemic has led to an increase in home-based exercise routines that are available online. And taking a brisk walk every day is a great way to boost endorphins while getting much-needed sunlight. Eat well: The new year is a great time to start a healthy eating routine. A well-balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables and lean proteins can help you feel more energetic. Even small, sustainable changes to your diet can improve your feeling of well-being. Limit alcohol: It’s easy to turn to wine or something

stronger when you’re feeling down. But increasing your alcohol consumption can leave you feeling more depressed and hopeless. If you find you are drinking more because of the pandemic and you are having trouble cutting down, seek help. South Shore Child Guidance Center’s C.A.R.E. Center offers chemical dependency services for individuals with substance use disorders as well as support for their loved ones. Discuss your feelings: If you are feeling depressed or anxious, discussing your feelings with a trusted friend or family member can be therapeutic. If you do not have anyone that you feel comfortable talking to, or if your feelings persist for more than a couple of weeks, give us a call at 516-868-3030. At South Shore, we offer mental health counseling sessions via telephone, videoconference or in-person. Visit https://www.epicli.org/program-services/mentalhealth-clinic/services-for-adults/ for more information. About South Shore Child Guidance Center South Shore Child Guidance Center is an outpatient mental health clinic licensed and funded by the New York State Office of Mental Health, New York State Office of Alcohol & Substance Abuse Services, and Nassau County Department of Mental Health, Chemical Dependency and Developmental Disabilities Services. Serving the community since 1955, South Shore offers individual, group and family psychotherapy; adult and pediatric psychotherapy; home-based crisis intervention; psychotherapy at J.W. Dodd Middle School in Freeport and Roosevelt Middle School; The Nassau County Mobile Crisis Team; chemical dependency education, counseling and psychiatry; and a DWI offenders program.

Thru-the-wall PTAC and HVAC systems require frequent preventive maintenance to prevent common problems, including unpleasant odors, water leaks and unusually fast wear of components. Prevention saves significant dollars. All types of heating and air conditioning systems are governed by a 70/30 rule — 70% of the cost should be preventive and 30 percent should be corrective. Repairs are fewer and less expensive when the systems are properly maintained. At regularly scheduled maintenance visits, Miller Aire Corp will clean and lubricate your system plus determine what is best for keeping it operating at peak performance. Miller Aire Corp offers several preventive maintenance programs with guaranteed response time.
