About the PEO Industry & NAPEO
About the PEO Industry...
Professional employer organizations (PEOs) enable clients to cost-effectively outsource the management of human resources, employee benefits, payroll and workers' compensation. PEO clients focus on their core competencies to maintain and grow their bottom line.
Businesses today need help managing increasingly complex employee related matters such as health benefits, workers' compensation claims, payroll, payroll tax compliance, and unemployment insurance claims. They contract with a PEO to assume these responsibilities and provide expertise in human resources management. This allows the PEO client to concentrate on the operational and revenue-producing side of its operations.
A PEO provides integrated services to effectively manage critical human resource responsibilities and employer risks for clients. A PEO delivers these services by establishing and maintaining an employer relationship with the employees at the client's worksite and by contractually assuming certain employer rights, responsibilities, and risk.
Businesses across America have discovered the incredible value of PEOs because they provide:
- Relief from the burden of employment administration.
- A wide range of personnel management solutions through a team of professionals.
- Improved employment practices, compliance and risk management to reduce liabilities.
- Access to a comprehensive employee benefits package, allowing clients to be competitive in the labor market.
- Assistance to improve productivity and profitability.
NAPEO, the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations, is the largest trade association for professional employer organizations nationwide. NAPEO has nearly 300 PEO members operating in all 50 states, representing more than 90 percent of the revenues of the $85 billion industry. NAPEO's members range in size from start-up PEOs to large, publicly held companies with years of success in the industry. As The Voice of the PEO Industry™, NAPEO embraces a commitment to furthering and protecting the interests of its PEO members at all levels of government through proactive lobbying efforts and timely communications on regulatory and legislative issues of interest. Further, NAPEO strives to promote consumer understanding and acceptance of PEO services through a proactive public relations initiative.
