As a Connecticut business owner, you’re probably constantly looking for ways to make better use of your time and simplify your life. Our professional employer organization (PEO) allows you to do that by outsourcing your payroll and HR needs. Outsourcing through a PEO is gaining traction as a nationwide movement, and it’s no surprise considering the many benefits.
We are a Connecticut PEO company with a national network of carefully vetted, reputable PEOs. In addition to offering in-house services, our PEO solutions at NetPEO include brokerage services that connect you with a list of high-quality PEOs to satisfy your specific needs.
What Exactly Is a PEO?
A professional employer organization (PEO) is an outside company that acts as part of your business for specific purposes. This convenient arrangement is often referred to as co-employment, and co-employment means that the PEO is the acting employer of your staff.
With co-employment, you retain the authority to hire, fire, and manage your staff, but the PEOdoes all the human resources work. PEOs are a way to outsource HR-related tasks, accounting duties, and other various business functions. Using a PEO makes your job easier and can also improve employee retention.
Having a PEO provides more benefits than simply outsourcing your HR work. If all you do is outsource your HR, your provider still operates as a separate entity, meaning they cannot bring you under the protection of their network umbrella. They also do not have full legal authority in employee disputes.
What Are the Benefits of Co-Employment?
Co-employment provides both parties with clearly defined roles. As the owner of your business, you remain the executive. You retain power over the PEO and stay in control of your staff and your business’s operations.
Your PEO just lightens your workload by handling the administrative tasks and other work you may decide to have them do. Your PEO will only take on the duties you want help with and always with your approval.
As your HR partner, your PEO can resolve disputes and handle workers’ comp and unemployment claims, and those are just a couple of examples of the many tasks you can delegate. A PEO can also help you follow government regulations, for example, compliance with the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
Working With a Connecticut PEO
Are you considering a PEO for your business? As a Connecticut PEO company, NetPEO understands the needs of local businesses and the regulations that affect employee rights in Connecticut. The main benefits of working with a PEO include:
- Attracting quality employees and offering superior benefits
- Lowering the cost of providing those benefits
- Having a full suite of HR services without hiring HR staff
- Ensuring compliance with state-specific regulations
PEOs are gaining popularity because they save client companies money and give business owners more time to focus on other important aspects of their business.
Services We Provide
HR services cost companies time and money. Handling these services yourself requires poring over mountains of paperwork and constantly keeping up with the latest government regulations. Instead, allow us to handle these time-confusing aspects of your business. Some of the services we provide include:
- Payroll services
- Obtaining and managing benefits
- Recruitment and new hire services
- Legal compliance and risk management
- Unemployment matters
- Workers’ compensation cases
- Employee safety issues
PEOs can take care of hiring and firing decisions as well. However, you will always have the final say-so in these delicate matters. Similarly, we can help you improve your company culture and growth trajectory while you remain in control of your business.
Professional Employer Organizations Businesses Can Trust
You may be wondering whether it’s safe to outsource to a PEO. As long as you go through a trustworthy company, it is safe to use PEOs. We are here to solve problems, not create more. Our PEO consulting solutions allow businesses to connect with qualified experts who will ensure that their operation runs smoothly.

What Makes NetPEO Different From Other Connecticut PEO Services?
Our company’s founders spent years working in the human resources and PEO business, so they’ve seen firsthand the difference that solution-oriented HR services make. They’ve also come across too many HR providers that overpromise and underdeliver. Many PEO companies have entire teams dedicated to the technical aspects of HR, but not the service itself.
Our position is that a responsive PEO should be flexible and ready to adapt as your business grows. A PEO company should also deliver on every promise it makes. We provide more than any other PEO company in the state. Here’s what sets our company apart:
- Decades of experience in the PEO industry
- A commitment to saving you money on HR, benefits, and compliance
- The ability to anticipate your problems and meet your needs before you even ask
