Who We Are
Formed in 1984, the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO) is the national trade association for the PEO industry. NAPEO's vision is to represent an industry that is well-recognized and widely acknowledged as providing a valuable employer service to the United States business community.
Who We Represent
NAPEO has approximately 350 PEO members operating in all 50 states, representing more than 85% of the industry's estimated $81 billion in gross revenues. NAPEO's PEO members range in size from start-up PEOs to large, publicly held companies with years of success in the industry.
Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs) provide human resource services to their small business clients—paying wages and taxes and assuming responsibility and liability for compliance with myriad state and federal laws and regulations. In addition, PEOs often provide workers with access to 401(k) plans, health, dental and life insurance, dependent care and other benefits not typically provided by small businesses. Between 2 and 3 million people are covered by a PEO arrangement.
