About PEOs

A professional employer organization (PEO) provides comprehensive human resources (HR) solutions for small and mid-size businesses. Payroll and tax administration, medical and retirement benefits, HR, workers’ compensation and safety support, and regulatory compliance assistance.

​By taking care of paperwork and providing regulatory compliance assistance, PEOs help businesses improve productivity, increase profitability, and focus on their core mission.

​Through a PEO, the employees of small businesses gain access to big-business employee benefits such as: 401(k) plans; health, dental, life, and other insurance; dependent care; and other benefits they might not typically receive as employees of a small company.
