What Does a Vermont PEO Service Do?

Looking for ways to reduce employment costs and increase profits? A PEO could be the answer. For almost four decades, Vermont employers have been outsourcing time-consuming employment administrative work to a PEO.

Benefits of a Vermont PEO Service

Professional employer organizations, also known as employee leasing providers offer Fortune 500 benefits with competitive rates that are accessible for large 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 PEO company even manages tasks such as PTO tracking, wage garnishments, multi-state reporting and ACA compliance. It is important to know that Vermont law requires that all businesses offering Professional Employer Organization (PEO) services in the State be licensed by the Department of Consumer Affairs. Some of the most common PEO benefits include:

Statistics on PEO Services

According to a recent study by noted economist McBassi & Company:

Advantages of Using a Vermont PEO for Workers' Compensation

PEOs offer a number of great benefits, but one of the biggest lies in the master workers' compensation insurance policies for their clients. Most businesses experience immediate savings on insurance rates, while avoiding down payments and state fees. Payroll services also provide an audit each period to ensure accuracy. Every Vermont PEO has specific workers' compensation classification codes they can or cannot cover, mandated by their Workers' Compensation insurance policy or carrier.

Other Vermont PEO Workers' Compensation Benefits Include:

How Much Do Vermont PEO Services Cost?

Much less than in-house costs. Vermont PEO companies either charge a fixed percentage of your total payroll, or a flat fee per employee. On average, PEO providers charge an administrative fee that averages between 2-4% of your annual payroll. Compared with in house costs of 8-15%, based on the Small Business Administration (SBA) statistics - PEOs are a bargain! Understanding your needs and where outsourcing can provide the biggest impact, is just one way we help you through the process.

How Does the PEO Relationship Work?

The PEO becomes your "back office" partner, allowing you to outsource work that takes time and doesn't generate revenue. Also known as employee leasing, PEOs provide complete payroll administrative services, human resource and governmental compliance experts that lower your employment liabilities.
Working with a Vermont PEO also allows companies to use the PEO’s lower EMR (experience modifier rating). This can be particularly beneficial to companies with prior claims issues and high experience modifiers.
