So what exactly is a PEO?

A professional employer organization (PEO) is a firm that provides a service under which an employer can outsource employee management tasks, such as employee benefits, payroll and workers' compensation, risk/safety management, and training & development. The PEO does this by hiring a client company's employees, thus becoming their employer of record for tax purposes and insurance purposes. This practice is known as co-employment.

How does a PEO help my business?

Using a PEO saves the time and staff that would be used to prepare payroll and administer benefits plans, and may reduce legal liabilities or obligations to employees that it would otherwise have. The client company is also able to offer a better overall package of benefits, and thus attract more skilled employees. The PEO model is therefore attractive to small and mid-sized businesses and associations.

How do we do it?

When you engage Advanstaff HR, the focus of your management team can turn away from the frivilous, but necessary, administrative parts of employment and you can focus completely on developing your company. And while these functions aren't your core focus, they are ours. So you get experts in every service area we provide. All Advanstaff employees are required to earn industry standard certification in their area of expertise and maintain their knowledge through mandatory continuing education each year.

Stability is key to longevity

Too often employers find themselves in trouble when they entrust multiple core operational functions to a single person that can come or go at any time. Advanstaff HR distributes those duties over a staff of trained professionals that ensures business contunity and depth in areas where it's simply not cost effective to staff internally with redundency and proper internal control. Advanstaff HR never calls in sick, never goes on FMLA, and will always be available when you need them, night or day. The average tenure of an Advanstaff HR manager is 12 years with the company. With a national company, you're lucky if they've been there for a year. We, like you, are in business for the long haul.

What makes Advanstaff HR the PEO for my business?

With 25 years of experience in the business, Advanstaff HR allows business owners to focus on the reason they followed their passion to start a business. With constantly changing rules and regulations, it's easy for managers to lose focus on their core business. This sadly leads to businesses never achieving their true potential. Advanstaff HR relieves the necessary, but non-core, burdens of business and allows entrepreneurs to focus on the things that will allow them to drive revenue and growth. By tying payroll, benefits, and human resources together through a robust, flexible-technology platform, managers are only keystrokes away from all the employee related data they need to manage large groups of employees with as few administrators as possible.
