As an Atlanta business owner, you’re always looking for resources to maximize your time, lower your stress, and make your life easier. A professional employer organization (PEO) can be exactly that resource.
That’s where NetPEO comes in. We’re an Atlanta-based PEO company with a nationwide network of highly qualified, screened, and tested PEOs. In addition to our own PEO services, we offer brokerage services that can connect you with a list of the best PEOs to meet your exact needs.

PEOs Offer a Wide Range of Solutions
Some companies choose to use a PEO to outsource their entire human resources department. Other companies use a more “a la carte” approach and assign specific tasks to their PEO. One of the prime benefits of working with one is the ability to flex and expand your service engagement as your business grows or evolves.
Our Atlanta PEO branch can help you with any of the following business tasks:
Imagine simply getting a regular payroll report you can glance over, make sure everything is on track, then get back to work. No more dealing with checks or direct deposit, no more reporting, no more deductions or withholdings to manage.
It doesn’t have to be a dream, it can be your time- and sanity-saving reality. Your PEO partner can authoritatively manage every aspect of payroll so you’re not panicked about payroll every two weeks. It makes tax season far easier, too!
When you enter a partnership with a PEO, you enter into a “co-employment arrangement.” It sounds frightening, but it’s really quite simple. For legal and financial purposes, your PEO partner will co-employ your workforce.
The owner(s) of the business (you) always maintains control over all business operations and decisions and daily management of all employees. A co-employment agreement simply allows your PEO partner to officially and legally do tasks such as issuing paychecks and processing payroll, provide benefits, manage workers’ compensation and disability claims, and other tasks set out in your Client Services Agreement.
A co-employment agreement can also limit some of your business liability. The transfer of liability from your business to our Atlanta PEO company is one of the biggest benefits of using a PEO. Our expertise can keep you out of danger.
Obtaining and Managing Benefits
If you’ve ever attempted to obtain a comprehensive employee benefits package, you know just how daunting and expensive it can be. However, when you work with a PEO, your employees become part of their nationwide pool of small- to medium-sized business employees.
This allows your PEO partner to have significant negotiation power, A PEO lets you provide first-rate benefits at a cost you can afford. Additionally, your PEO partner can manage employee benefits and incentive programs to ensure you can attract and keep the best talent.
If you keep getting beat out by the competition for talent, it may not be your salary offering but your lack of benefits. Using a PEO will keep you competitive in the fight and improve employee morale.
Reducing Liability and Risk
There are a lot of rules with operating a business in Atlanta. One look at the information from the Georgia Department of Revenue can overwhelm you with tax requirements alone. No one wants to face lawsuits, fines, or the expense and distress that comes with violations and failure to comply with federal, state, and local regulations.
Your Atlanta PEO partner can help develop policies and protocols and ensure compliance with all necessary rules and regulations, including the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
Improving Employee Safety
One important role of HR teams is the health and safety of employees, and ensuring they’re aware of safety regulations. The coronavirus pandemic really put a spotlight on this HR task. As we all continue to return to the office, keeping records of on-site safety training will be crucial.
We can go over your current OSHA and other regulatory agency training requirements and see who needs to undergo testing again. Many certifications are likely expired since we’ve all been away from the office for so long.
PEOs in Your Industry
Some PEOs work across industries, others are industry specific. NetPEO can match you with a PEO partner that best meets your requirements, regardless of industry.
We have worked with Atlanta organizations in industries such as:
- Professional services
- Hospitality and service
- Financial services
- Information technology
Regardless of whether your company has five employees or over 500, we can connect you with the ideal PEO partner to enhance your employees’ workplace experience while saving your business time and money.
Not every PEO fits with every company. Differences in experience, industry knowledge, and capacity can make one PEO company better than another. Therefore we offer both PEO service and PEO brokerage services.
We’ve had many clients come to us under an existing PEO contract asking how they can switch. We’ll ask you what’s wrong with the current relationship and, using our network, find PEOs that better fit your current needs.
We can also go over your current contracts and determine the best way to sever the relationship while causing minimal disruption to your business operations. We know from experience that it is possible to get out of a bad PEO contract!
