Small businesses are a vital part of Florida’s economy. According to statistics provided by the Small Business Administration (SBA), more than four out of 10 employees working in the private sector in Florida are employed by firms with fewer than 500 employees. These firms account for 99.8% of all businesses operating out of the Sunshine state.
While small businesses are essential to the economy in Florida, keeping these companies afloat can be difficult work. As your company grows, you may find yourself taking on new HR responsibilities and dedicating less time to running your operation. This is why so many businesses are now turning to HR outsourcing services.
If you’re running a small business in St. Petersburg, NetPEO is here to help you find your next PEO partner. Whether you’ve never used one before, or you’re just not happy with your current PEO, our representatives are here to help. All you need to do is call us at (678) 376-1212 or use the form on the right to get started today.
PEOs Help All Sorts of St. Petersburg Businesses
If you’ve found yourself dedicating too much of your time to handling HR paperwork, getting help from a PEO is a great solution to get you back into the basics of your business. However, you may not be certain that a PEO is right for your business.
The truth is that there’s likely to be a PEO with experience in your field helping businesses just like yours. As the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO) points out from its research, there are more than 900 PEOs in the country, helping out hundreds of thousands of businesses.
Our PEO brokers at NetPEO have helped businesses with as few as five employees and as many as 500. We’ve worked across many industries, including:
- Legal Services
- Food Services
So long as you run a small business, NetPEO can help you find a PEO that offers the services you need to grow your business.
How NetPEO Finds Your Next PEO Partner
As a PEO broker working with businesses in St. Petersburg, you might think that NetPEO connects you with the closest PEO. However, our team is dedicated to helping you find the right PEO partner rather than just the closest.
We do this by learning more about your company. We narrow down what you need from a PEO based on what you want out of a partnership, how many employees you have, and your industry. After we’ve interviewed you to make sure we have a firm understanding of your needs, we create a narrowly tailored list of PEOs from our national network. We make sure these PEOs have the expertise you need and who have experience helping businesses just like yours.
Once we’ve narrowed down a list of potential partners, we help you arrange an interview with any PEO you think works for your business. When you’ve decided on an organization to work with, we’re there to help you set the terms of your new partnership. If you ever have any difficulty with your PEO partner, NetPEO is here to make things right.
What You Get Out of a PEO Partnership
While you could hire a team to work in-house to solve your HR challenges, a PEO is often much more cost-effective. According to white papers published by NAPEO, you save about $450 per employee in administrative costs when you partner with a PEO. This, of course, is on top of all the time you get back to run your business.
Not only that, but your business is more likely to thrive in a number of ways after you’ve partnered with a PEO. For one, your business is 50% less likely to shut down after you’ve signed up with a PEO. Likewise, businesses that partner with a PEO see 10% to 14% less employee turnover on average. Perhaps even better, your business could grow at a 7% to 9% faster rate afterward.
