Why small and medium sized businesses benefit from a PEO

PEOs work best with small to midsize businesses, which typically means businesses with 5 to 99 employees. Many PEOs will not work with businesses that have less than five employees. 


PEOs can assist small and medium sized businesses with a wide array of HR related functions to save time and ensure they’re staying compliant with regulations. 


Labor and employment can be complex to keep up with, especially for small business owners who often juggle different responsibilities in day-to-day operations. PEOs help their clients’ businesses remain compliant in both state and federal employment laws. PEO professionals are also human resources experts, meaning they are able to keep updated about any employment law changes as soon as they occur.


A PEO can help your business handle daily HR tasks more efficiently, while also improving productivity of other functions since you and your employees will be able to give them your full attention.


Onboarding and offboarding employees are also common functions that PEOs can assist with. Any business will have to onboard and offboard an employee at some time, and this process can confuse many business owners. However, it’s important to note that a PEO will not hire or fire employees on behalf of your business.
