PEOs, or Professional Employer Organizations, provide comprehensive HR solutions for small and mid-size businesses. Payroll, benefits for employees, HR, and regulatory compliance assistance are some of the many services PEOs provide to growing businesses across the country.
As any PEO provider understands, It’s important to have top-tier benefit services in place in order to attract and retain high-level talent for your team. PEO services include time and attendance, recruiting, employee training, attorney review, and performance management.
Under a PEO co-employment agreement, the PEO acts as the employer for tax identification purposes, while the client company runs the business and manages the employees as usual. In addition, the PEOs take a small monthly payment for managing the payroll and HR aspects of the business.
To qualify for PEO services, your business needs a minimum of three employees enrolling in health insurance. Generally, businesses need a high participation of enrollment to secure a more competitive price. For PEO to be the right fit for your business, the fees must offset the savings on your health insurance benefits.
