MBO's History at a Glance
The company was founded as Software Resources of New Jersey in the mid-1980s. It was a co-op formed in response to the Tax Reform Act of 1986, specifically Section 1706, and provided back-office administrative services to independent contractors / self-employed workers.
SRNJ was purchased by the Netplex Group in 1996 and was one of several Netplex Group subsidiaries. The name was then changed to Contractors Resources. The Netplex Group eventually sold off all other subsidiaries (and the holding company itself), to focus exclusively on Contractors Resources.
In 2001, as part of a marketing arrangement with Monster.com, the company became MyBizOffice and operated under that name until 2008. It was during this period that MyBizOffice developed its proprietary online technology system providing benefits and support services to consultants and independent contractors, including tax processing, payroll, group benefits, and more that would become the cornerstone of Its service delivery for the next 15+ years.
MyBizOffice became a qualified General Services Administration (GSA) supplier to the federal government in 2003.
During the mid-2000s, the company began serving organizations that engage independent workers, in addition to the workers themselves. This led to accelerated growth.
MBO Partners has continued to grow by expanding its client base and developing a long line of innovative independent workforce solutions for the workers and their clients alike.
Today, MBO Partners is the leading independent workforce management platform in the market, offering flexible service engagement, scalable workforce program management, and workforce optimization programs.
