What is a PEO?

A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) is a co-employer and functions like an off-site human resources (HR) department to provide cost-effective outsourcing of HR services. The PEO legally co-employs its client’s personnel, creating a three-way relationship among the PEO, the client company, and the employees. In doing so, the PEO provides small and mid-size companies access to a strategically leveraged, fully scalable, integrated HR department that delivers a vast array of quality services and benefits while mitigating employer-related liabilities.

As a PEO, our team at Professional Employer Resources (PER) is also a co-employer and human resource service provider. We provide small- to mid-sized businesses with all the functions of an HR department to reduce employer-related liabilities, increase employee satisfaction, and maintain federal and state compliance.

Take a look at some of the PEO services we offer:
