Big Workers' Comp Savings with Payroll Services and Access to Great Employee Benefits.

Mississippi PEO Companies

What is a Mississippi Professional Employer Organization?

A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) company takes the responsibilities of payroll, HR, risk management and more off the business owner's shoulders so they can focus on growing profits and expanding business opportunities. PEOs also offer smaller businesses the opportunity to attract more talented employees with access to employee benefits plans and other perks they may not otherwise be able to afford.

Mississippi PEO Service Advantages

A PEO serves as your back office partner, managing employment administration tasks for your Mississippi business. Help from hiring to retirement, most business owners are overwhelmed with the amount of paperwork and mandated reporting that comes along with employment.

Professional employer organizations and many HR outsourcing providers offer Fortune 500 benefits with competitive rates that are accessible for big and small companies. Human resource professionals reduce many employment liabilities by providing assistance with safety and employee handbooks, along with proper hiring and employment procedures. Outsourcing through a Mississippi PEO provider even manages tasks such as PTO tracking, wage garnishments, multi-state reporting and ACA compliance.

Some of the most common PEO benefits include:

How Much Do PEOs Cost?

Mississippi PEO companies either charge a fixed percentage of your total payroll, or a flat fee per employee. All professional employment organizations charge different rates. Your rate charged will also depend on the amount and type of administrative services needed.

PEO pricing varies dramatically since each offers different services and benefits - and that's where we can help. While average administrative costs run between 2% - 4% of your annual payroll, other optional and ala carte costs that you may or may not need should be considered.

For example, some offer safety training, handbooks, employee drug testing, life insurance and even employee assistance programs (EAP) as part of their PEO service fees. Others may charge separately for these services.

Do PEOs Lower Work Comp Rates?

Absolutely! Unlike traditional work comp policies, a PEOs master workers' comp policy can provide immediate savings compared with current Mississippi rates. Even with bad claims history and a high experience rating, PEOs look deeper than just a few unfortunate incidents and evaluate the big picture.

Most businesses experience immediate savings on rates, while avoiding down payments and state fees. Payroll services also provide an audit each period to ensure accuracy. Every Mississippi PEO has specific workers' compensation classifications they can/ cannot cover mandated by their Workers' Compensation insurance policy or other carrier arrangements.

Additional Mississippi PEO Workers' Compensation Benefits Include:

Mississippi PEO Providers Save You Money

Working with an Mississippi PEO will also save your business money. Administrative costs when using a professional employer organization range between 2%-4% of your annual payroll. This amount is much less than the average 8%-15% (evaluated by the Small Business Administration) when managing similar tasks in-house.
