Excellent Decision – Extremely Responsive

Working with Lumina Business Solutions was an excellent decision. Outsourcing human resources tasks such as payroll, workers compensation and compliance allowed my business to allocate much needed resources to sales and marketing, resulting in increased revenue and EBIDTA. I would suggest Lumina to any business owner who needs to upgrade HR without incurring the costs of adding personnel. Otilia Canter was extremely responsive to any requests and listened to our ideas to tailor the experience. Her level of service was that of a team member, and we felt like she was part of the family. Service levels like this make you wonder why you’d ever go in-house with HR again!
