Employer Advantage Expands Into Phoenix Market With Acquisition of Choice Employer's Resource

The acquisition will expand the footprint of the Midwest-based HR company and provide Arizona businesses with personalized, strategic outsourced HR services that lift their administrative burden to improve profitability and growth.

JOPLIN, Mo., June 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Employer Advantage, an HR services company headquartered in Joplin, Missouri, has expanded into the Greater Phoenix market with the acquisition of Choice Employer's Resource in Mesa, Arizona. This marks the third location for the rapidly growing company, which also has offices in the Kansas City area. The sale was finalized June 1, 2020.

For Employer Advantage leadership, the concentration of small and mid-sized businesses in the Phoenix area made the market a natural fit.

"While we can and do serve businesses of every size, it's small to mid-sized businesses that are the best fit for our outsourced HR services," said Jared Young, President & CEO of Employer Advantage. "They typically don't have the resources in house for all of the administrative, HR and compliance functions today's employers have to handle, and that causes a tremendous burden. It stifles growth and profitability, and causes so much stress. Our goal is to free employers from that burden so they can focus on their business success."

Shared company values and a personal connection were also important criteria in the transaction.

"Choice has a high standard of service and shares our values," said Young. "We have known the owners, Brad Bowman and Steve Winger, for many years and have always had the greatest respect for them and their company."

Bowman echoed the sentiment. "While we're extremely proud of what we've accomplished as a business, we have been looking for a larger partner to help us meet our clients' evolving needs. Employer Advantage is ideal because they have our same dedication to personalized service, but they are large enough to bring additional resources and technology to the table."

Bowman and Winger will stay on as employees of Employer Advantage, continuing to work with and support existing and new Arizona clients.
