Leading bioscience company discovers Checkwriters a positive HR match

“Checkwriters Onboarding has helped us grow to a few dozen employees to a few hundred employees in multiple states.” Mariana Martinez, HR Manager, MicroGenDX

Mariana Martinez and Alysa Medina – HR and Operations leaders at national bioscience company MicroGenDX – were searching for a new Payroll and HR platform that could grow with their organization while providing the accessible service they weren’t receiving with their previous national provider.

In addition, they needed robust Reporting and Analytics tools, an interactive Onboarding experience that could be deployed on a national level to standardize their hiring processes and be customized to the states they operated in, and a Performance Management application to replace their antiquated and cumbersome paper employee evaluation forms.

In May 2021, we sat down with Mariana and Alysa at the Orlando, FL headquarters of MicroGenDX, where they shared how they met Checkwriters Account Executive Steve Lanzit and Sales Manager James LeDuc at the SHRM Annual Conference and Expo, and why they ultimately chose Checkwriters as their Payroll and HR partner despite the dozens of competitors available.
