What is a PEO?
A PEO is an HR services provider that can bring your employees into a larger benefits and administrative employment group. It allows a business to remain the employer of record for its workforce while gaining access to employee benefits and HR expertise the business might not otherwise be able to afford.
Using this model, many businesses group together to gain the buying power normally associated with large corporations, and secure a complete portfolio of employee benefits and HR expertise for all of its members.
What a PEO is not:
- It is NOT a temporary staffing service
- It is NOT an employee leasing company or contract staff provider

Best practices from an HR professional

Time and attendance
We help you save time and improve accuracy by integrating time and attendance with your payroll and HR through our all-in-one HR technology and allowing employees to clock in and out from our mobile app.
