Owning a small business is tough. Employ a PEO to help relieve some of that stress.
Building a business is a 24/7 job. Even when you’re not at the office, you probably think about work, about what needs to be done, and how to go about doing it. Your inbox is probably chock-full of unanswered emails. Your smartphone is probably pinging you non-stop. Everything and everyone seems to be desperately clamoring for your attention, and some days you feel more like a fireman putting out urgent fires here and there than the CEO. In the midst of the daily hubbub of being the boss, the captain of your company, and the solid rock to which your employees defer, the last thing you want to deal with is an HR crisis. Or a notice of audit. Or screening job candidates. Or dealing with workers’ compensation claims. Or a million and one other acute bureaucratic headaches.
Outsourcing the Paperwork
All across the nation business owners are opting to offload directly their bureaucratic burdens to someone else. In fact, an entire industry has grown up around taking on critical administrative tasks that many smaller businesses simply aren’t equipped or willing to handle. PEOs, or Professional Employer Organizations, exist for the sole purpose of providing administrative services, assistance, and expertise in a variety of critical fields. This may include benefits, payroll, human resources (HR), recruiting, compliance, and risk exposure, just to name a few.
Typically a PEO and a client firm will partner together to form a strategic relationship. The PEO takes on the customer company’s employees as it’s own, along with all the associated administrative baggage. The client company is then free to focus on its core business. Better yet, you the owner can finally have some peace of mind. Partnering with a PEO fully frees you to do what you do best: run your business.
Why worry? Get a PEO.
