You’ve Got Questions about PEOs. We’ve Got Answers.
A few frequently asked questions – and answers – for those interested in learning more about PEOs (professional employer organizations).
PEO stands for Professional Employer Organization.
A PEO provides employment management tasks including employee benefits, payroll administration, workers’ compensation, human resources, and risk and safety management, and human resources compliance guidance.
A PEO, or a professional employer organization, allows companies to outsource key human resource functions like payroll, benefits, training, and guidance to assist small and mid-sized companies with maintaining compliance with federal and state labor and employment laws. Working with a PEO can help business owners and their management teams focus on the business.
A PEO's economy of scale enables each client company to lower employment costs and increase the business's bottom line. The client can maintain a simple in-house HR infrastructure or none at all by relying on the PEO. The client also can reduce hiring overhead. The professionals at the PEO can provide critical assistance with employer compliance, which helps protect the client against liability. The PEO client can access significant technology and service infrastructure provided by the PEO. In addition, the PEO provides time savings by handling routine and redundant tasks for its clients. This enables the business owner to focus on the company's core competency and grow its bottom line.
PEOs are generally the best fit for small- to mid-sized businesses that have fewer than 250 employees.
Axcet works with clients who have a presence in 46 states within the United States. So multi-state and long-distance support are never a problem.
That said, we find that we work best with businesses that are headquartered within 250 miles of Kansas City because we're better positioned to provide that hands-on access that our clients come to really appreciate.
PEOs by the Numbers
- Faster Growth. Over the past 15 years, employment at small businesses using PEOs has grown between 7 and 9 % faster than small businesses overall.
- Lower Turnover. Small businesses that have used a PEO for at least four quarters have experienced employee turnover at rates 10 to 14 % lower than the average rate for U.S. businesses.
- Greater Longevity. Privately held businesses that use PEOs are approximately 50 % less likely to fail (permanently cease operations) when compared to similar U.S. companies.
