What is a PEO (Professional Employer Organization)?


A PEO or employee leasing company is a service that helps businesses succeed by providing efficient HR services and reduced workers' compensation insurance rates. Most business owners are experts in their field- but not in payroll, workers' compensation, HR, and employee benefits. The paperwork involved in those tasks can consume so much time that there isn't much left over for sales.


A great solution is using an employee leasing company. These providers handle all employee-related paperwork so employers can focus on business growth. The relationship between an employer and a PEO is a partnership, but the business owner remains in complete control over employee management and daily activities. The PEO provides complete payroll and workers' comp management, compliance, and risk management.


Working with a Professional Employer Organization offers your textile business a number of great benefits including:


  • Workers' compensation loss reduction strategies
  • OSHA regulatory support
  • Work comp discounts of up to 40%.
  • Access to a team of HR professionals for EPLI, drug testing, claims and more.
  • Affordable group healthcare
  • Supplemental, 401(k) plans, life and other insurances



Does Using a PEO Affect My Workers' Comp Rates?



Yes! That's one of the reasons more than 3 million US workers are co-employed with a PEO. For many small businesses, workers' compensation insurance is one of the most expensive parts of running their business.
