WHAT IS A PEO 

Professional employer organizations (PEOs) enable clients to cost-effectively outsource the management of human resources, employee benefits, payroll and workers’ compensation. PEO clients focus on their core competencies to maintain and grow their bottom line.

Large companies have the advantage of a fully staffed and competent human resources (HR) department. Small companies typically do not have this expertise on staff. This is where the PEO can help. Business today has become increasingly complex. Labor laws and regulations continue to increase yearly. The health care arena alone confuses many companies. PEO’s handle employee related matters such as health benefits, workers’ compensation claims, compliance with labor laws, payroll, payroll tax compliance, and unemployment insurance claims. This allows the owners and managers of the company to focus on running the business and managing/motivating the staff. Smaller companies do not have to be at a disadvantage any longer.

BENEFITS OF A PEO

  • Relief from the burden of employment administration.
  • Personnel management solutions through a team of professionals.
