Top 3 Reasons You Should Consider a PEO

leave a comment »

A Professional Employer Organization, or PEO, can help a growing business go from wheel spinner to profit earner. But this news comes as a surprise to the many business owners who don’t really understand what a PEO can do for them and why they should take a closer look at this multi-faceted business efficiency provider.

Here are our top three reasons why you should consider using a PEO for your own business:

Time. As any businessperson knows, time is money. The more time you can devote to the core tasks that drive your business’s profitability, the more your business prospers. But who makes a prosperous business run? Employees, of course — and there’s where things can bog down. No matter how wonderful your people are, the fact that you have them on the payroll, enrolled in your benefits programs, insured by your insurance vendors, means that they will have needs that must be administered to. A PEO takes that burden off your plate so you can focus on your bottom line.


Expertise. The world of HR — with its ever-changing benefits, employee taxes, state and federal compliance, and of course insurance issues — requires constant vigilance, expertise, and knowledge of the changing compliance issues in the workplace. You’re not in the human resources business, so it’s natural that your staff may not have the extensive resources or skill sets to constantly keep up to date with the latest HR requirements and challenges. A PEO does.


Professional Counsel. A PEO saves you money not just by restoring your time but also by helping you protect your company’s assets. You receive expert advice on all issues that affect your relationship with your employees. This level of professional guidance plays a critical role in limiting your risks and controlling your expenses as an employer.
