Professional Employer Organization (PEO)
A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) is a service arrangement under which a client employer can outsource HR (human resources) functions and various employee management tasks. These tasks include HR management, employee benefits programs and administration, payroll processing, workers’ compensation, recruitment and selection, employment practices liability, risk/safety management, and multi-employer 401k plans.
Advantages of the PEO Option
Total HR Management’s PEO program is specifically tailored to fit the needs of your business. By helping you do more with less, the goal of our PEO and HR outsourcing program is to let you focus on the core mission of your company. We focus on what we do best – HR, while you focus on what you do best!
According to the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations www.napeo.org, small businesses that use PEOs grow 7-9 percent faster, have employee turnover that is 23-32 percent lower, and are 50 percent less likely to go out of business than companies that don’t use PEOs.
