What Is A PEO, Can it Help Your Small Business?

A PEO is a Professional Employer Organization. A PEO can help your small business by doing various functions such as payroll, benefits, employer related administrative functions such as 401k and health benefits. This allows the employer to focus more on the employee and the daily business needs. These are some of the things that a PEO can do for your small business.

What Is A PEO

Benefits

PEO’s can offer better benefits packages when they pool together with their partnered employees, allowing better rates for dental, health and vision. They also allow you to offer your employees better life insurance options, flexible spending accounts, and 401k plans.

 

 

Taxes

Keeping up with tax codes can be a full time job itself. When you hire a PEO, they do all the tax work for you! Not only that, but when tax season comes around they take care of that paperwork as well.

Workers Compensation

Would you know how to file a workers compensation claim? Or what to do if you had to file discrimination claim? When you have a PEO working for you, all of your employee’s concerns and injures are addressed timely and lawfully.

Recruitment and Hiring

PEO’s can even recruit new hires for your company. You can decide just how much of the responsibility you want them to take on. They can run the ad, they can run the interview, it’s all up to you.

PEO’s don’t take over the running of your business, that’s still up to you. They do take many of the responsibilities regarding the paperwork and filing of it. It is still up to the business owners to run the business and the day to day operations.

Hiring a PEO might be the best thing for your business, giving business owners more time to run their business. Now that you know more about them and what they do, if you think it’s for you, give Howard Employee Services a call at 941-922-0202

Why You Too Should Outsource Payroll

payroll servicesSmall to medium sized business owners are all too familiar with the headaches associated with payroll management. In fact, one of the first things business consultants always recommend is to outsource payroll and other non-core functions. A non-core function is anything you can’t charge clients for or use to differentiate yourself from your competitors.

Let’s explore the outsourcing payroll a bit more with a focus on the advantages as well as disadvantages that may be associated with this decision. In a closed perfect business environment outsourcing should have three main benefits:

Frees up Time and Resources

Payroll is a critical function of business operations. However it does not directly contribute to increased sales. Instead it represents a risk as it may increase costs if done incorrectly. This makes payroll an area with a huge con vs. pro margin when it comes to profit margins.

Besides costs payroll represents a huge risk when it comes to legal requirements. Businesses have to conform to various laws from federal to state and local tax laws. These ordinances are forever changing representing a huge amount of time investment to stay in compliance for a business owner.

Historical Data Analysis

Employee salary is often times the biggest expense small to medium business enterprises have to deal with on a yearly basis. One of the ways to mitigate the negative effects of reoccurring costs is to track its historical costs in order to make better financial decisions based on past decisions.

For example, if a certain position has proved to be an issue cost vs. benefit wise you can more accurately catch this with a managed payroll system that provides with graphical data as well as personnel assistance. Without this assistance businesses often risk falling into the trap of repeated mistakes leading to eventual financial ruin.

Risk Reduction

Payroll management services have built in risk management features that a business may not be able to afford on its own. This includes services such as helping a business owner navigate legal issues, requirements, and even guidance when it comes to sensitive employee relation issues. A good payroll service will have an employee relations management department to ensure smooth communication between employer and employee.
