Choosing the best PEO for your organization can feel like a challenging task— but finding the right one can be a total game changer for your business. Working with a PEO should make your work-life feel easier, and act as a partnership that supports your business in moving forward.

In this blog, we will dive into what a PEO does, things to consider when outsourcing HR, and what we offer as the best PEO in the Southwest.

What is a PEO?

A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) is a company that provides outsourced human resources services to small and medium-sized businesses. The PEO becomes the employer of record for the employees of its client companies and handles many of the HR tasks such as payroll processing, benefits administration, workers’ compensation insurance, and compliance with employment laws and regulations.

The client companies retain control over the day-to-day operations and management of their employees, while the PEO takes on the administrative burden of HR functions. This allows client companies to focus on their core business operations while the PEO handles administrative tasks.

PEOs can also offer other services such as employee training, recruiting and hiring assistance, and performance management. By pooling the employees of multiple client companies, PEOs can often negotiate better rates for employee benefits and insurance, which can be a huge cost-saving advantage for small and medium-sized businesses.

Things to Consider

Determine Your Needs
Identify what specific HR needs your business has. Do you need help with payroll, benefits administration, compliance, or recruitment? Understanding your needs will help you find a PEO that can offer services that align with your requirements.

Research PEO Providers
Research PEO providers that offer services in your industry and have experience working with companies of similar size and needs as yours. Look at their online reviews and ratings, testimonials from clients, and their website to get a sense of their services.

Consider Pricing

Consider the PEO’s pricing structure and ensure that it aligns with your budget. Compare the costs of various PEOs to get a sense of the market rates.
