Accurate and compliant benefits processing is a significant challenge for GSF because of the company’s complex structure. As a food distribution and manufacturing company, GSF has an employee base that is mostly hourly, and a large majority of associates are union members. Salaried and hourly employees are eligible for different benefits programs, as are union and non-union members. Even associates with the same profiles have different benefits options depending upon their departments, such as Transportation versus Warehouse.
