A Better Way to PEO

Get more from your professional employer organization (PEO)

A typical PEO allows you to outsource the management of your employee benefits program and restrain rising insurance costs. You remain in control, but your provider becomes a co-employer, joining your people with the employees of other companies to gain efficiencies of scale.

You Don't Have to Settle for "Typical"

Paychex transforms the standard professional employer organization into a powerful, time- and cost-saving human resource management service. One that gives your employees high-value benefits that help you retain them and attract others. Paychex also offers the proactive management of a dedicated HR professional who is backed by the expertise and buying power of America’s largest provider of outsourced HR services — allowing us to negotiate better pricing and coverage.

You See What You Pay For

With some PEOs it’s difficult to know what you’re paying for. Most competitors charge against gross wages which allows them to gain additional fees on raises, overtime pay, Section 125 deductions, and unvested 401(k) forfeitures. Paychex audits down to the penny and itemizes costs clearly on every invoice. No guessing. No surprises. It’s one of the reasons we’ve earned recognition from the Ethisphere Institute as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies.

A Trusted HR Advisor—Not an 800 Number

Your Paychex HR Professional

One of the unique aspects of the Paychex PEO is the personal management of a dedicated HR professional. Trained to take a proactive interest in your HR issues, they direct efforts to monitor compliance, schedule training and support you through every stage of the employee life cycle. And while most companies give you a toll-free number to call, you’ll have your Paychex HR professional’s cell. 

Your HR Professional can assist you with:

  • Hiring and managing employees
  • Creating a custom employee handbook
  • Regulatory and legal compliance issues
  • Employee benefits programs
  • Affordable Care Act documentation
  • Correct employee classification
  • Terminating an employee
  • Online HR resources
  • Workplace safety
  • Onsite employee training

“When we first started, we had no employee handbook, no documentation, no stable hiring practices, no management training, no job descriptions, no safety manual or trainings, etc. Our turnover was extremely high. With the help of Jennifer, our Paychex HR professional, we put these items in place.”

—Christopher L. Canarvis, Project Manager, All Star Energy, Inc.

    Get Proactive Compliance

    Your HR professional is trained to know federal, state, and local labor laws, and keep current of continually changing new legislation. They help to resolve issues before they become problems that can lead to potentially reputation-damaging fines or employee-initiated lawsuits.
