Hiring a full-time, in-house human resources and accounting staff can be expensive, leading many business owners to turn to HR outsourcing solutions like professional employer organizations.
The past decade has seen a dramatic increase in the usage of PEOs. The National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO) estimates that the HR outsourcing industry has grown at a rate 14 times higher than the overall U.S. economy.
This flourishing of PEOs means that business owners are faced with a conundrum. It may be much more beneficial to outsource their HR needs, but finding the perfect PEO amid the plethora of options can be daunting.
As a PEO broker in Atlanta, NetPEO can assist business owners by combing through our vast nationwide network of PEOs to find the best fit for each of our client companies.
Businesses That Can Flourish With a PEO
No matter what industry your business inhabits, our skilled PEOs have the ability to assist you with everything from payroll management to legal compliance, employee disputes, and workers’ compensation claims.
Our PEOs have more than two centuries of combined experience helping companies such as:
- Aviation firms
- Law firms
- Retail centers
- Construction firms
NetPEO Brings You PEO Options
As an experienced brokerage service, NetPEO knows how to create a profile of your company and its HR needs. We start by interviewing you, developing a plan of action, and then bringing a handful of possible PEO options for you to choose from.
Once you have selected the right PEO for you and your business, you and the PEO sign an agreement called a “co-employment arrangement.” Though the term may sound disconcerting to some business owners, you do not lose control of your company and retain all your current rights and abilities.
Simply put, the arrangement allows the PEO to provide services normally reserved for employers, such as handling financial matters or distributing employee benefits.
Unlike some other brokers, NetPEO’s job does not end there. We remain in touch with you throughout the duration of your co-employment relationship to ensure that your needs are being met and you are still satisfied with the arrangement. Our years of HR experience help us prevent any problems before they occur and deal with them swiftly if they do arise.
The Co-Employment Relationship
In a co-employment relationship, the business owner and PEO have well-defined responsibilities. The business owner, also known as the Executive, still employs their employees, still has the final say in all hiring and firing decisions, and still dictates the direction of the company.
On the other side, the PEO gains the ability to handle sensitive data and to add the company’s employees into its existing employee pool. Having this much larger employee pool gives the PEO certain special abilities that are unavailable to most smaller businesses, such as having higher bargaining leverage for top-tier employee benefits packages at a lower individual cost.
Services Offered by NetPEO’s Partner PEOs in Atlanta
Our Atlanta PEO brokers can connect you with various PEOs from our nationwide network that have the ability to tackle virtually any HR problem and fill virtually every HR need that your company may have.
While we recommend saving money by outsourcing the entire HR department, we also allow client companies to select specific services in an a la carte fashion. That way, no owner has to pay for services they will not use or do not need. The following are among the many HR solutions that our PEOs provide.
Our PEOs can handle the grueling work of balancing budgets and distributing pay. By signing up with a PEO, you can save mountains of paperwork that otherwise might eat into your valuable time as a business owner.
Our PEOs will gather all the paperwork, sort it, and fill it out as needed. You won’t have to worry about any papers being lost or turned in late because our PEOs greatly value your business.
No business owner should have to obtain the equivalent of a law degree to own their company. But failing to abide by federal and state employment laws can create huge, money-draining problems down the line.
Instead, let us find you a PEO that can take care of compliance and save you money, possible lawsuits, and professional embarrassment in the event of non-compliance. We have a variety of PEOs in our network that have the necessary experience to avoid legal issues that can slow down your business.
Company Culture Issues
Our Atlanta PEOs can help you create proper onboarding materials, sexual harassment policies, safety procedures, and more. PEOs in our nationwide network are able to build a safe, mutually uplifting company culture that increases productivity and makes your business more attractive to both workers and customers.
You won’t have to worry about any inconsistencies in policy because our PEOs are highly skilled people with a range of experience with creating workplace policies. You’ll be able to present your business’ sexual harrassment policy with confidence and authority.
We Keep You Involved With Our Work
A common worry that clients have about working with a PEO is that they lose control of their business. We understand any worries that you may have about hiring an outside company to manage some aspects of your business, but we assure you that this is not true.
When you hire one of our professional employment organizations in Atlanta, you still maintain a majority of control over your business.
This is why when the PEO makes any decisions, they will make sure to clear them with you first so that there is no confusion or conflict. If you don’t agree with how the PEO is doing a certain task, we can discuss it and meet in the middle for a solution that works best for your business.
Our partnership through the co-employment arrangement will help you meet your company goals faster by not having to deal with easy but time-consuming tasks such as doing payroll. With the plan we develop, your business’ productivity and efficiency will exceed expectations.
How a PEO Differs From a Temp Agency
You may think of a PEO as similar to a form of a temp agency, but this is not true. While temp agencies supply labor to a specific company, a PEO supplies services to enhance your business’ performance.
Temp agencies have a staff of workers that they “lease” to various companies that are looking for work. Temp workers will go to a company to complete the job and then return to the temp agency to be reassigned again.
In contrast, a PEO partners with your business to help it grow by assisting you with tasks to make your days more productive. The services we provide are all centered around making your workload lighter and your business more efficient. We don’t send you a variety of different workers for a limited amount of time—we help you hire quality full-time employees.
We want to emphasize that you still have control over your employees, business finances, and many other aspects of your workplace. If you decide that you no longer need our services, the employees that we helped you hire will still be your employees.
