Easily hire and pay anyone, anywhere with Skuad's global PEO platform.
A PEO is an outsourcing firm that assists businesses with tasks related to the employee management, such as human resources, payroll processing, tax filings, employee benefits, safety and risk mitigation.
When a company gets a PEO on board, it establishes a co-employment relationship - they help companies with their staffing needs, but the responsibility is divided. The company takes care of employee’s day-to-day management, while PEO manages HR and payroll. Both, the PEO and company are legally responsible.
Partnering with a can help tech companies in payroll processing, insurance coverage, local compliance, taxation, benefits and more. The client-company can avail all services or customize a solution based on their needs. Working with a PEO helps spend fewer resources - time, money and personnel.
