Small businesses are a vital part of the Long Island economy. According to the latest available numbers from the U.S. Census Department, more than 400,000 people in Suffolk and Nassau counties work for a business with fewer than 50 employees. Additionally, a 2016 annual report from Empire State Development noted that more than 98% of people in New York were employed by a business with fewer than 100 employees.
At NetPEO, we know that running a small business can be difficult and that you can’t always do everything by yourself. That’s why, as a Long Island PEO broker, we’re here to help you connect with a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) that can take some of the weight off your shoulders so you can focus on running your business. Call us today at (678) 376-1212 to speak with one of our brokers about finding the right PEO for your business.
What Professional Employer Organizations Do
If your small business is growing, you may find that it can be difficult to carry out all the necessary operations and fill out the right paperwork. As you hire more and more employees, you may find an increasing amount of your limited time is getting pulled towards doing Human Resource (HR) paperwork. While hiring a dedicated team to handle your HR responsibilities is one idea, it can be a heavy hit to your budget.
PEOs serve the same purpose as a dedicated HR team, but at a fraction of the cost. For either a flat fee per employee or a low percentage of your total payroll costs, you can retain the services of a PEO to help with your HR needs. Service areas that where a PEO could help you include:
- Legal Compliance
- Benefits Administration
- Worker’s Compensation
- Employee Training
Not every PEO offers all these services. Some may have only a few of these services, while others may offer a total HR package. Knowing what a PEO offers is as important as knowing what you need from one.
How NetPEO Helps You Find the Right PEO
According to the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO), there are over 900 PEOs helping nearly 200,000 small businesses across the United States. This can make finding the right PEO feel overwhelming. Researching PEOs and finding the ones that have the services you need can take dozens of hours you could be spending on running your business.
This is why so many employers turn to a Long Island PEO broker like NetPEO. Rather than having to research individual PEOs, NetPEO uses its vast network of PEOs to find the right fit for your business. We interview you to find out what your HR needs are and what you’re looking for in a PEO partnership.
Based on what you’ve told us, we can compile a package with PEO specialists handling a handful of HR areas or one offering a full coverage package. Not only do we vet the PEOs for you, we also negotiate on your behalf to keep costs down. When we have a list of potential PEO partnerships, we let you decide what’s best for your business.
Even after you’ve found your perfect match, NetPEO is there to make sure that you’re completely satisfied with your choice. If you’re not satisfied with the services you’re receiving or you’ve realized that your growing business could use more HR services, NetPEO will be there to help solve any problems.
Perhaps best of all, the services provided by NetPEO are completely free of charge to you. You will never have to pay an out-of-pocket fee for the world-class client services we offer to your business. This is one of the many reasons we have a 95% client retention rate and a 100% client satisfaction rate.
