Professional Employer Organizations (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.

Businesses today need help managing increasingly complex employee-related matters such as health benefits, workers' compensation claims, payroll, payroll tax compliance, and unemployment claims. They contract with a PEO to assume these responsibilities and provide expertise in human resources management. This allows the PEO client to concentrate on the operational and revenue-producing side of its operations.

A PEO provides integrated services to effectively manage critical human resource responsibilities and employer risks for clients. A PEO delivers these services by establishing and maintaining an employer relationship with the employees at the client's worksite and by contractually assuming certain employer rights, responsibilities, and risk.

Businesses across America have discovered the incredible value of PEOs because they provide:

  • Relief from the burden of employment administration.
  • A wide range of personnel management solutions through a team of professionals.
  • Improved employment practices, compliance, and risk management to reduce liabilities.
  • Access to a comprehensive employee benefits package, allowing clients to be competitive in the labor market.
  • Assistance to improve productivity and profitability.
