Professional Employer Organization

A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) provides comprehensive HR solutions for small and mid-sized businesses. They specialize in outsourcing various HR tasks, such as payroll, benefits administration, and compliance.

Key benefits of working with a PEO:
  1. Cost Savings: PEOs can pool clients together, allowing them to negotiate better rates for health insurance, workers’ compensation, and other employee benefits.
  2. HR Expertise: Small and mid-sized businesses may not have the resources to employ full-time HR professionals and PEOs provide access to HR expertise.
  3. Time Savings: Outsourcing HR tasks allows business owners and managers to focus on core business activities, fostering growth and innovation.
  4. Scalability: As a business grows, a PEO can adapt to its changing needs, providing support for hiring, benefits administration, and more, without the business needing to invest in expanding its internal HR department.
  5. Compliance & Risk Management: Stay compliant with employment laws and regulations, like those related to wages, overtime and workplace safety. They can also help by providing workers’ compensation insurance.


What to look for:

While there are numerous benefits to partnering with a PEO, it’s essential for businesses to assess their unique needs and ensure that the PEO they choose aligns with their organizational goals and culture. It’s important to do your research and choose a PEO that is a good fit for your business.

  1. Size and scope of business: Some PEOs specialize in working with small businesses, while others work with larger businesses; choose a PEO that aligns with your organization.
  2. Services offered: Make sure to choose a PEO that offers the services you need.
  3. Cost: PEOs charge different rates; be sure to compare rates before deciding.
  4. Reputation:  Read reviews and ask for recommendations from other businesses.
  5. Underwriting: some PEO firms will price in underwriting; this includes extra risk, but not a policy denial
  6. Health Plans: ICHRA, QSHRA, etc., depending on the company need
