In today’s competitive job market, California job seekers are applying to companies that offer the best benefits. Unfortunately, providing the health plans people want is expensive and complicated, often requiring a human resources (HR) department. Compliance issues can also be a nightmare to handle.
While the benefits issue provides larger companies with a competitive edge in attracting quality employees, this obstacle can be removed. Working with a California PEO company like NetPEO can help you compete in this critical area.
What Is a PEO?
A professional employer organization, commonly referred to as a PEO, offers administrative employees and services for lease to businesses. When you partner with a PEO, they can start providing the HR services, payroll, employee benefits, and risk management services you require to run your business more efficiently.
There are only a few ways the typical outsourcing company can meet your payroll and HR needs, but we can do much more. By diagnosing your company’s administrative issues and connecting you with a provider to help you with HR, payroll, and other administrative duties, we free you up to focus on other vital aspects of your business.
What a California PEO Can Do For Your Employees
We help you improve the level of benefits you can offer to employee prospects while reducing the overall costs you pay for benefits. An alliance with us means that your business can provide impressive benefits, regardless of size. As a California PEO company and PEO broker, we match businesses up with carefully vetted PEOs across the state.
A PEO can benefit your employees by:
- Lowering the cost of employee benefits
- Providing outsourced human resource services
- Offering more competitive benefits
- Ensuring compliance with all applicable regulations
Your organization can realize these advantages when you work with an experienced PEO firm with a stellar reputation.
PEOs Provide Administrative Support for Your Company
When your business works with a PEO, you set up an arrangement known as co-employment. This arrangement lets the PEO act as the “employer” for your workers only under certain circumstances. Some business executives worry they might lose control of their employees, but that is not how it works.
You will always retain control of your company while working with a PEO. For example, you will continue to make decisions about hiring and firing employees. The PEO will only handle responsibilities associated with the human resources department, such as benefits management.
PEOs also offer more comprehensive services than other outsourcing companies. You’ll be able to join the PEO’s benefit network since you are seen as one entity. Also, large PEOs typically have more bargaining power than a single company, allowing them to secure more competitive rates for employee benefits.
The Co-Employment Partnership Consists of Two Roles
No matter how you define your business, co-employment with a California PEO company can help you expand and grow. Co-employment consists of two roles, each with specific responsibilities:
Your role is to act as the executive in the co-employment relationship. As the primary employer, you will have the final say in any decisions. You’ll remain the leader of your company, and your employees will continue answering to you.
The PEO carries out specific duties only with your approval as you delegate them. You can rely on the PEO to handle employee disputes, unemployment cases, and even workers’ compensation claims, and it’s up to you how much responsibility you give the PEO.
Streamline Your Operation With the Help of a PEO
You can count on a PEO to perform every function that an in-house human resources department would typically handle. Enlisting the help of a PEO means you won’t have to go back and forth with insurance companies anymore or spend valuable time hassling with separate HR companies. Instead, you can receive a full suite of services from one company:
- Benefits Management
- Human Resources Support and Claim Resolution
- Compliance with the Affordable Care Act (ACA)
- Strategic Development
By working with a PEO, you’ll mitigate many risks to your organization by promptly addressing any compliance issues.
California Industries That Benefit From Using PEOs
Any kind of business can benefit from PEO services in California. We have partnered with companies across diverse industries, including:
You can enjoy the benefits of a PEO regardless of the number of employees you have. We’ve helped businesses that have as few as five employees and as many as 500. Whether you’re a brand new start-up or a national or global organization, we can assist you in streamlining your business.
How We Stand Out

We’ve been working with businesses like yours for more than a decade. Experience has taught us how to save our clients money on employee benefits, HR services, and issues with all types of compliance regulations.
