Frequently Asked Questions
What are PEO companies?
PEO companies, short for Professional Employer Organizations, offer outsourced HR services to businesses. They handle transactional HR tasks such as payroll, taxes, benefits administration, and ensure labor law compliance. Additionally, they provide access to improved employee benefits, allowing businesses to concentrate on their core operations and reduce employee turnover.
How do PEO companies work?
PEO companies enter into a co-employment relationship primarily to share employer responsibilities and liability with their clients. It allows businesses to access expert HR support, comprehensive solutions, and more competitive employee benefits while reducing administrative burdens.
Would I lose control of my employees when partnering with a PEO?
No, you won't. In a PEO relationship, while responsibilities are shared, businesses retain complete control over their employees' day-to-day work.
What are the benefits of using PEO companies?
PEO companies offer several advantages, including cost savings, access to better employee benefits, risk mitigation, enhanced compliance, and improved business outcomes, with studies showing 7-9% faster growth, a 50% lower likelihood of going out of business, and a 10-15% decrease in employee turnover.
Do PEO companies help with compliance and legal issues?
Yes, PEO companies assist in ensuring compliance with employment laws and regulations, which effectively reduces legal risks for their clients. Some PEOs, such as Stratus HR, provide nationwide coverage for multi-state organizations or cater to specific single-state needs.
Can PEO companies provide employee benefits like healthcare and retirement plans?
Yes, PEO companies can provide businesses with access to cost-effective HR support, comprehensive benefits, and compliance assistance. This encompasses healthcare, retirement plans, FSAs, life insurance, dental, vision, and more. At Stratus, you can tailor the plan to best suit your needs, which sets us apart from the competition
