A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) helps you eliminate HR, finance, and employee administration headaches while protecting yourself from liabilities. It’s how small- and medium-sized businesses can realistically and affordably offer benefits similar to much larger corporations.
Our California PEO brokers are ready to connect you with the perfect PEO to meet your needs. If your business is growing quickly, partnering with a PEO can bring you a full suit of HR and finance services without paying for full-time in-house staff.
Why Hire a PEO?
Growing companies need to attract more and better talent to keep up with the growth. At the same time, larger companies face more business risk and regulation. A solid HR team will help recruit new talent and ensure compliance with federal and State of California regulations.
A PEO handles these HR, compliance, and payroll tasks so you can focus on your core business. You can stop spending all your time on HR and finance administration and at a cheaper rate than hiring your own team.
NetPEO Helps You Manage and Grow Your Business
Our California PEO brokers connect businesses that need extra support to PEOs across the country. We have one of the largest PEO networks in the nation. It’s also free for your use! NetPEO does not charge for consultations.
NetPEO’s role is to find the best PEO for your business, which may not be a PEO organization in California at all. Just because they are local to you does not mean they’re the best for you. There are lots of factors to consider, like expertise in your industry, to choose the right one.
Do You Face These Business Challenges?
When do you know you need to partner with a PEO company? We’ve talked with our PEO clients and found if you’re facing any of the following challenges, it’s time to consider calling our team for a referral.
Need an Expert to Ensure You Are in Compliance?
Industry regulations, federal and California state labor laws, record keeping, taxes and fees — the list of items your business must comply with is nearly endless. If you are found not to be in compliance, it can create enormous, expensive issues that could take down your entire company.
A PEO broker can link you to a company that has the specific expertise to ensure you remain in compliance with federal, state, and industry regulations on time, every time. Remember, once you reach certain levels of employment, new regulations kick in!
Having an Expert to Handle Payroll Management
Do you struggle with balancing budgets, spreadsheets, payroll distribution, and other administrative tasks? If this is your regular nightmare, it’s time to remove these tasks from your plate and allow your PEO partner to save you time and paperwork.
By clearing these tasks from your calendar, you can get back to your business, get more clients, and continue developing new products and services to grow your bottom line.
Want to Improve Your Benefits and Properly Administer Them?
Attempt to sign on to employee benefit programs on your own and you may be met with high prices, extremely complicated contracts and commitments, and even denials due to your company’s size.
Working with a PEO allows you to access a wide array of benefits, typically with sizable discounts. Medical, dental and vision insurance plans, life insurance, retirement plans, and more are all possibilities for you when you have a PEO partner.
Also, you won’t need to worry about benefits administration either, as a PEO will provide support for you and your employees. In short, a PEO can be the first big step to offering solid employee benefits and attracting a higher level of talent.
Get Help Directing Your Business Through the ACA
The Affordable Care Act (ACA – sometimes known as “Obamacare”) added a whole new layer of complication to already-complicated health plans. Don’t do it on your own and face penalties, allow a PEO partner to navigate the ACA for you.
An Expert to Handle Claims Against My Business
Do you have a plan to handle legal issues that could come up between you and your employees? HR teams know the regulations and how to shield companies from lawsuits.
From unemployment and workers’ compensation to discrimination and wrongful termination claims, a PEO partner can securely pilot you through the process and manage any claims fast, within budget, and within the law.
Tired of Being Your Own “HR Department?”
When you’re booming, your days as an owner can be filled with hiring and training duties you don’t need to take on. Many owners also hate firing employees and performing exit interviews. A PEO hired through one of our California brokers can handle all of those HR tasks for you.
A PEO Is Not Just an HR Contractor
When you work with a PEO partner, you will enter into a “co-employment arrangement.” You, as the business, maintain complete control over your companies and make all final decisions, but you are assigning responsibility for HR, benefits, finance, and employee administration management to your PEO.
This contract allows a PEO to receive and handle sensitive and confidential information usually reserved solely for an employer. This also allows your PEO to create a large “employee pool” for bigger, better benefits and greater bargaining power with benefits providers.
Part of your PEO broker’s job is explaining what’s in the co-employment contract so you know exactly how you’ll partner with your new PEO, including how to handle conflicts and, if necessary, terminating the agreement.
