It’s No Secret: Two PEO Offerings that go Above and Beyond

Often, companies decide to partner with a PEO to alleviate administrative payroll, HR, and benefits responsibilities – as well as costs. While all are vital to a business, the lesser-known advantages to enlisting a PEO have the ability to provide significant impact for a company. From ever-changing compliance laws to managing business growth, companies must evolve their workforce and expertise to succeed. Knowing when there is a need to enlist a PEO and the unique attributes offered by one can bring tremendous value to an organization.
Legal Defense Benefit
Compliance can be a daunting business challenge, and if not executed correctly, could have significant implications. Compliance blind spots, regulation overload, turnover hot spots, and employee issues are potential scenarios that can arise overnight, forcing a company to properly navigate on its own. When considering a PEO, ensure the PEO partner offers a legal defense benefit for clients to help reduce risk from employee claims. While not traditionally offered by many PEOs, this added level of protection can be a game-changer.
Opportunities for Expansion
Enlisting a PEO rooted in Hawaii and the business is key to a successful, unified partnership; however, for companies that will eventually look to grow beyond Hawaii, it is crucial to have the necessary infrastructure available to make a jump at a moment’s notice. Laws differ by state and country, which dramatically affects an HR department’s operations. However, having a PEO with a presence on the mainland and globally, can provide companies with a seamless expansion and ongoing business growth, regardless of the address.
