Companies that hope to compete successfully for the best and brightest talent have found that they must offer their employees competitive compensation and benefit packages. A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) has compensation experts on staff that can assist clients by monitoring industry standards for appropriate job-specific compensation levels and providing knowledgeable consultation and recommendations. Companies with fewer employees often face a competitive disadvantage because their workers do not receive federal protections under the alphabet soup of government statutes: COBRA, ADA, and FMLA. However, when a PEO serves as “co-employer” for a client’s employees, those workers become part of a broader employee base and thus receive the protections afforded to employees of larger organizations. contact form to learn how a PEO can keep your business competitive.
