If you are a small to medium size business owner and are not partnering with a Professional Employer Organization (PEO), take some time to read through this site carefully. A good PEO can increase your profitability and can be the best route to simplifying your duties as an employer allowing you to focus your time and efforts on what you do best… running your business.
Begin by asking yourself these questions:
- Am I overpaying for health insurance?
- Does my staff spend too much time on transactional HR issues and not enough on activities that increase our profitability?
- Do my HR staff and I understand and keep up with all of the new health care reform issues, payroll tax rules, compliance and liability issues that can effect my business?
- Am I getting the most out of my employees?
- Am I paying too much for State Unemployment Taxes and how can I stabilize my rates?
- Is employee turnover hurting my bottom line?
- Are we handling safety training, discrimination / harassment training properly?
- Is Workers Compensation insurance necessary and can it be less costly with increased stability?
- How can I offer employee benefits such as 401k for free?
- Can I protect my company, pay less for HR services and have a big company HR staff at a cost savings over what I am doing now?
If any of these questions have crossed your mind take the time to get some of the answers here. And, if these questions haven’t crossed your mind then definitely take the time to read through this information and consider a PEO relationship.
