Charities and not-for-profits tell their stories of success

I am a busy HR professional, with little payroll expertise. I don’t have the time to develop my skills so that I can manage payroll as well as my other daily responsibilities, so it is important that I can depend on someone else to proficiently handle that side of things. With IRIS Cascade I have utmost peace of mind that everything is being handled properly, professionally and with SBHG’s best interests at heart.
