Our unbiased Insperity PEO review sheds light on one of the best HR outsourcing companies in the industry and how your small business can benefit from working with them. According to The National Association of Professional Employer Organizations, there are more than 800 PEOs in the United States. With so many PEOs to choose from, it’s almost impossible to know which firm could be the right choice for your small business. Over the years, we have worked with many of these companies and in our opinion, only one stands above the rest. Here is what you need to know about working with Insperity.
What Is A PEO (Professional Employer Organization)?
A PEO is a firm that partners with companies to provide comprehensive Human Resources (HR) services. These services include: employee benefits, payroll, workers’ compensation, recruiting, risk/safety management, employee training/development and most importantly, compliance to state and Federal laws.
The PEO concept has been around for more than 30 years now. PEOs give small businesses access to big-business benefits and help them address the issues they consistently report as their top concerns: healthcare, taxes and regulation.
A common misconception for most business owners is that they fear the PEO will replace their Human Resources department, however this couldn’t be further from the truth. A PEO works in unison with the HR department making difficult tasks easier. Thereby, saving the business owner money.
“PEOs provide access to more HR services at a cost that is almost $450 lower per employee,
compared to companies that manage their HR services in-house.”
