What is a PEO?

A Professional Employer Organization, or PEO, is a group of HR professionals that partners with your business to manage your HR and employment-related responsibilities.

PEOs make your business run better.

HR administration and employee management can be a major drag on your business. Your responsibilities as an employer—handling employee benefits, payroll, workman's comp, policy compliance, and much more—divert your time and resources from doing the things your business was actually built to do.

Professional Employer Organizations take care of these responsibilities for you.

Essentially, a PEO serves as your Human Resources department: a group of HR professionals that designs, manages, and runs the day-to-day responsibilities that go along with employing people. PEOs also protect you from, and in some cases share with you, the legal, financial, and tax-related liabilities you must take on as an employer.

What is Co-Employment?

Many of the benefits of PEOs are possible thanks to co-employment. When you enter into a co-employment relationship with a PEO, your workers are technically considered employees of the PEO.

In reality, all this means is that your employees are associated with the PEO's tax ID number—workers' pay still comes from funds your business provides, and your business is still in charge of providing for other employer responsibilities—but now your business enjoys the legal and financial benefits mentioned above.

PEOs save time and money.
