A Year in the Life of PEO
PEO people are so engaged in the industry that they can discuss everything from the minute details of their PEO lives to broad issues of universal importance across the PEO operational spectrum. Each PEO does things it’s own way, yet each has a stake in the direction of the industry. Listening to them talk about their businesses and the operating environment, you will often hear them finish each other’s sentences. It’s like playing a game of “Mad Libs,” each person filling in the blanks with his or her unique ideas.
It’s not that they interrupt each other—it’s just that they “get” each other, despite coming into the PEO industry in different ways, being in different phases of their business life cycles, and finding their own ways to deal with the industry’s challenges.
On September 8, 2016, five PEO professionals got together in a meeting room in Austin, Texas, during NAPEO’s 2016 Annual Conference & Marketplace. PEO Insider® invited them there to talk about anything and everything having to do with their lives in the PEO world. This issue’s feature presents the transcript of this discussion.
