Outsourcing certain HR functions to a PEO can help small businesses optimize operations while reducing costs. Here's how. 

Choosing the Right PEO

Mitigating Workplace Risks. Recently, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) fined a national pharmacy and retailer $205,000 when one of its locations refused to grant emergency leave to a pregnant employee, forcing her to quit. Such conduct violates two important laws: Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Americans with Disabilities Act. These laws prohibit discrimination based on pregnancy-related conditions and disability, and prohibit retaliation, including making a reasonable accommodation request. In addition to the fine, the company was required to maintain and distribute policies prohibiting discrimination based on pregnancy, pregnancy-related conditions, and retaliation and invest in training for employees and supervisors.

A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) can help. PEOs specialize in keeping track of new laws, deadlines, tax filings, wage regulations, and other legal requirements to avoid compliance violations and the costly fines, penalties, and legal disputes that come with them. By partnering with a PEO, businesses can rest easy knowing they won't get hit with a surprise that could hurt their bottom line. 

Access to Expertise and Support. PEOs employ experienced HR professionals with extensive knowledge and experience in all areas of HR. Outsourcing to a PEO means access to a wide range of HR services without maintaining an in-house HR department. This allows more resources to go towards core business functions, such as product development and marketing, ultimately promoting growth and profitability.

PEOs can help businesses with ways to cut out inefficiencies, reduce HR administrative tasks, streamline your HR processes and save money. According to the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO), PEOs provide access to more HR services at a cost of close to $450 lower per employee compared to companies that manage their HR in-house.

More Time. Better Bottom Line. Outsourcing offers many advantages and can positively impact your bottom line. It’s a cost-effective way to immediately access resources and gain valuable industry expertise. Because you pay for only the services you need, the cost to outsource is often less than the cost of hiring additional full-time staff.

By outsourcing non-core functions to a PEO, employers can redirect more time and resources toward activities that drive value. For instance, a PEO can handle payroll, employee benefits, compliance and general HR. With certain  functions taken care of by the PEO, your management team can concentrate on innovation and expansion.

PEOs help smaller employers compete by providing access to enterprise-level benefits packages and other perks typically associated with large corporations—all without breaking the bank. 

Scalability and Flexibility. As your business evolves and grows, your HR needs change too. PEOs help employers adjust their services to suit fluctuating workforce requirements and business conditions. If you're expanding your team across different states, a PEO can help you navigate the complexities of various employment laws in each location. Whether you're scaling up to accommodate rapid expansion or downsizing to withstand economic downturns, PEOs can help you easily adapt to change.
