Professional employer organizations (PEOs) take HR, payroll and benefits tasks off your hands so you can focus on running your business. These companies operate under a unique co-employment model, where your employees legally appear on a PEO's books but remain under your control. This model allows for a PEO to leverage major health benefits plans with the best providers no matter the client.
PEOs also have experience when it comes to handling HR problems or new payroll practices, like payroll taxes. PEOs can provide workplace training, unemployment insurance, workers' compensation coverage and other types of employee benefits. A PEO can handle your administrative tasks and give you the kind of employee benefits that will attract new workers. As a client, partnering with a PEO gives you access to great back-end administrative services for running your business.
