What is a PEO?
A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) is a company that provides full-service outsourcing of human resources responsibilities using a method known as co-employment. A PEO assists businesses with the administrative responsibilities that surround employee management, including a variety of human resources tasks, processing payroll, filing taxes, managing employee benefits, legal compliance, and risk mitigation.
In a co-employment relationship, a company allows its PEO partner to help with its staffing and human resources needs, but the true responsibility is divided between the company and the PEO. The company itself handles the day-to-day, hands-on management of its employees while the PEO takes care of the labor-intensive administrative tasks such as recruitment, hiring, and running payroll. In this type of co-employment relationship, both parties are legally responsible.
In essence, the PEO hires staff members on behalf of and leases them to the company, relieving the company of many time-consuming administrative processes while allowing them to work with globally sourced talent. The company is still the worker's legal employer and maintains the employment contract and relationship with the staff member.
