GovDocs serves companies in building and executing their employment law compliance programs in two primary ways.
- Employment Law Posting Service: We manage all the complexities of identifying and providing the necessary set of labor postings from the 1,500+ potential postings across the U.S. and Canada. Using proprietary technology, we allow companies to manage, track and verify postings at each of their locations – including our patent-pending PosterCheck®. Our Employment Law Posting Update service is used by almost 20% of the Fortune 500 and 30% of the Fortune 50. We also provide this service to the U.S.’s 2nd largest payroll & HR provider.
- Employment Law Data Service: This is a first to market Software-as-a-Service starting with our Minimum Wage and Paid Leave products, which allows companies to identify and track which laws apply to their locations, then provides all relevant data to make decisions.
GovDocs has grown revenue annually by 22% since 2008 with 96% customer retention rate, primarily due to our Posting Update Service both obtaining and retaining customers – as employment law posters are required by law, every company has an existing provider.
Our Employment Law Compliance (ELC) platform is the key to GovDocs growth as it is how customers will engage us for all products, and it is allowing GovDocs to disrupt the existing marketplace.
GovDocs has a strong culture of innovation, teamwork and urgency to serve our customers. We also have a very balanced approach to our employee experience with strong culture, work/life balance, compensation and long-term growth mindset – all of which all provide us an environment that will deliver sustainable growth.
