What Kind of Companies Use a PEO? Companies Like Yours.

Small and medium sized businesses across the USA are using StaffMarket to assess the benefit of hiring a Professional Employer Organization to improve their efficiency and enhance the benefits for their workforce. Every company is unique in their needs and the PEO industry offers a wide range of services to fit their demands.

Why Companies Join a PEO

Some companies are motivated by the significant cost or worker’s compensation insurance which is on the rise in many states. For these clients, PEOs can offer workers’ compensation insurance at a significant cost reduction, with the advantage of assisting in safety programs that help reduce experience mod rates. Others are seeking to ensure regulatory compliance for employment related obligations in hiring and employee management. Some companies main focus is outsourcing non-revenue related tasks (like payroll and employment taxes) to a third party, thus freeing their management staff to focus on business objectives like revenue growth and product quality. Finally many companies need access to quality health insurance and expanded employee benefit programs. Furthermore, the implementation of the PPACA with all of its regulatory reporting demands, fines and penalties and financial impacts creates even more need for companies to partner with a PEO.

Here are just a few of the companies currently using StaffMarket to review their PEO options:
